Bio Photo In fourth grade, many,many years ago, I became involved with this wonderful hobby. Thank you for having this website!
Cemetery: euphemism coined by the early Christian writers. It is a Greek word for dormitory, a place to sleep.
"...passing down memories is the strongest link in the gossamer bridge that binds us as people."
David Baldacci.
"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living." Marcus Tullius Cicero.
In eternal honor of our ancestors
Who left behind so much,
Who started here with so little,
That we might have everything.
Pax Christi.
Genealogy is the warp on which the fabric of history is woven. It is the most immediate, personal kind of history, and for many the most satisfying kind,rooted in the pervasive values of family and heritage. It is an essential part of the one great task each of us is called upon to undertake----the exploration of who we are.
From the Vesterheim Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library literature. Madison, Wisconsin.
A woman was trying to impress her friends at a party one afternoon. "My family's ancestry is very old." she said. "It dates back to the days of King John of England." Then turning to a woman sitting nearby, she said condescendingly, "How old is your family, my dear?"
"Well," replied the woman with a smile. "I can't really say. all of our family records were lost in the Flood."
They, who blazed the trail and broke the Virgin soil,
Ne'er garnered half the harvest of their toil;
To-day, wher'er they sowed, others reap
To them is sleep."
their brave deeds and, alas, too often their very names are forgotten.
""High fortune may be tossed away,
Nor health nor skill my long endure,
Only the name I bear is sure,
And since from it I cannot hide,
Lord, let me hold my name in pride."
It's hard to understand how a cemetery can raise its burial costs and blame it on the high cost of living.

RE: Thank you!!!
Anna Schaeringer Rammer 40255005 is buried in Saint George Cemetery, Twn. Wilson, Sheboygan Country, WI, USA.

The other two will take more research time on my part.

RE: Aubol transfers.
You are more than welcome. My great-great-great and great-great grandparents and great-grandmother are all buried at Gjerpen, hence my interest. Start with Erick Kittelsen Riis. Please let me know if you want any more transfers!

RE: thanks!
Forgot to get a close up of it. Doesn't come out very clearly when cropped out of the image that is there. Will get back there sometime and get one.
Have one more stone that isn't readable at all that I need to get back there and take over again anyway. Hopefully I'll be able to get something off of it to tell who it is.

RE: Infant Berge
If you look closely you can see it says "Infant 1945" in between Mark and Ester's names.

Memorial edit
Hello Aavedt,

I joined Find A Grave some time ago. My number is 49072835. I have used Find A Grave in my family research. My goal in joining is to edit my Find A Grave lineage for future family historians.

My Granddad is George Henry Scharinger, #68412549 b. 1880. The 1st two siblings listed on his memorial page are incorrect. They are his aunts. I am unable to delete thes two.

Please help me remove Sr Anna Scharinger # 99194313 & Sr. Barbara Scharinger # 99194384.

Thank you, Tom Keyes
