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: Anna Amundson
Because I haven't added photos to this site, I'm not sure where to add the photo of Anna, Mrs. Tom Amundson. My father's writing on the back indicates it was a Pine Creek sewing circle circa 1890.

Anna Thompson Mrs. Thomas "Tosten" Amundson
I know you wonderfully added the photo from New Hope cemetery. I have a picture that I think is Anna Thompson. I didn't know if you were a relative or someone who is taking photos of tombstones :)

I just added a photo of them from the same source.
I tried finding more of their children with no luck.

RE: Ziehl
I need the Find A Grave Memorial Number in my original note to give you a better answer. The grave picture did not fit the details of the person listed. That is what I was questioning. I have gone back and looked for the wrong grave picture but do not find it now. I thought I would get a reference copy of my email, but I think I missed the check mark for that to happen.

RE: Note
I see why the confusion. I had the wrong pix loaded for Minnie. Now fixed.
