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 ole." 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."

RE: Margaret Molner
Don't you hate it when these things happen? She is at St. Paul's - you should delete 81574816 (after you make the links with the one at St. Paul's (52130398).

Hi! Thank you for linking them. I have not been able to find out her husband's name yet, odd, so I am thinking he either died a long time before her, or perhaps a divorce. I will keep looking and get back to you!

RE: Your Mom.
I e-mailed Rose Mohnsam yesterday about finding my
great-great-grandparents who may be buried in
Brillion Cenetery. No stones found but blurb in
Trinity Lutheran Church German records in Brillion
suggest that maybe 'katherine Weber Ruppenthal' is there.No sign of Franz Jakob.
Would like to mark their graves.
Thanks for responding

RE: Pre-needs.
I understand the reason why it was created. I have found that it has more potential to do harm to persons finding her memorial, thinking she has passed away.
