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: Six gravestone photos.
You are very welcome for the photos! It was my pleasure.
The genealogy unit you are working on sounds very interesting. Is that an online course?
Again, you are welcome!

RE: Photo at Our Savior Lutheran

Det er min glede... We probably know of one another.

My ancestors all come from Valders WI and then Norway; Thompson, Torrison, Evenson, and Nelson. I get back to Valders once or twice a year.
My older brother now owns Edwin and Anna Thompson's old home next to the Valders water tower.

I have traveled to Norway twice and have photos of many of the family farms.

I will add more photos soon. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or stories that you would like to share.

You must know that calvery and pioneer are the EXACT same cemeteries. You do not walk out of one and into the other. I realize there are a group of people that are telling findagrave I am lost out there and in the wrong cemetery but we all know that you are a group that just want control over the names. It is sad very sad. ...but whatever. I do have a life and did what I did to assist real family members.

RE: Wiese photos.
I added the photo and apparently because I could not read the year, did not include it on the memorial. If you use the "edit" button and add the year of death, I will make that correction so it is complete. Or if you would like to have these memorials, send a request for transfer through the "edit" button and I will transfer and you can add it yourself....Shirley

Weber obituarys

Thank you very much for the obituaries for the Weber family that you sent me for their obituaries. I've added them all and updated their memorials based on the information provided in the obituary.

Much appreciated!

RE: Mauer photo.
I have to return and take another look at both Union Cemetery and Zion cemetery. I count about 23 Maurer grave listing but found only 9 memorials. That is a larger amount of unmarked family graves than usual. I found one large family plot and a single memorial listed on the cemetery plot map. I didn't find a infant section or grave markers new enough to be for the more recent burials. Helen is to be buried tomorrow and I will return next week to look about her area for more related burials. As she was a member in good standing of the Zion Church, I am surprised she is not being buried there. I am assuming the Union cemetery plot map is not up to date.

RE: Message Gloria Mena
I was unable to locate an obituary for her that would indicate her burial placement.
