Bio and Links
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: Info.
I contacted the archives in Dunn County. I was looking for specific names in my family. They located them, told me my total for copies of these items/articles with those names in it. I paid and they mailed them to me. While going through all of these papers I have copies of other articles (sometimes in whole, others only in half). I look the people up and if I can find them on find a grave I add the edit.

RE: Obit for Robert Buss.
I think you hit the nail right on the head! When I'm doing my research, that is always in my head that if I update this or connect so and so, somebody looking for them will have an easier time! :-)

And you are welcome, I ordered a bunch of copies from the Dunn County archives for my own family research and any obituaries or pieces of information I find, if I can locate the person and the information matches, I try to update for the person running the page. It all helps! Have a great night!

Amelia Valaske Mittelstadt correction
Hello Aavedt!

Find A Grave #115103961 Incorrectly states:
Amelia( Valaske) Mittelstadt (daughter of Daniel and Dorothea Sophia Valaske.)
Spouse: Robert Mittelstadt

Amelia's maiden name was not Valaske. Her maiden name was Charlotte "Amelia" Emille Ludwig. She married Robert Mittelstadt, son of Daniel and Dorothea Sophia (Valaske)Mittelstadt.

Robert Mittelstadt Born: Sept 3, 1866 DunnCo,WI
Died: Jan 23, 1950 DunnCo, WI

He was the 6th of 9 children born to Daniel Mittelstadt Sr.(1828-1895) and Dorothea (Valaske) Mittelstadt.(1828-1874). Daniel and Dorothea Mittelstadt are the GGgrandparents of my husband.
