I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

I am Laura V and I am a direct descendant of John / Jan Ingebretsen Dyrland (#21739305) and wife Kjestine who are buried in the Skudesness Lutheran Cem. in Kidder Co, ND.
I will be in the general area the first week of June 2015 and would like to go out to the cemetery to pay respects and take photos. I've been able to find it on Google maps so I think I have a good idea about how to get there but …..
I was wondering if you can tell me who I need to contact to get permission to be on the property. It appears that this is on someone's farm and I don't want to trespass.
Thanks for your help,
