Bio and Links
Bio Photo Kindly, please use the EDIT tab for requesting changes. Most everything can be done that way. If you choose to use SUGGEST edit, please be specific as to what you would like me to change. Text abbreviations can be confusing and not understood fully by me. Sorry, I'm old school and don't use abbreviations. I have been yelled at like I'm a two year old because I questioned someone when they used text abbreviations and I didn't' understand what they wanted. Both you and I will be happier with the result.

Thank you ****

I've been researching my family for over 25 years - a passion that began with my grandmother. She passed on a wealth of information to me about her family - and it fascinated me. I research near daily and am proud to say that I have researched more than 40,0000 people who connect to my family in some way, shape, or form.

As a Find A Grave member, I am not a collector of names/graves. I enter names for those I have a genealogical connection (family, distant family, and VERY distant family members), when I visit a cemetery, or if I come by a particularly obituary that touches my heart. From time to time I may transcribe a cemetery, but generally those are upon request only.

I am a firm believer that how we treat those who died before us speaks volumes for how we treat those that are still living.

I willingly will tranfer memorials to other if: a) they are within FaG guidelines (4 generation rule) or b) is a reasonable reason (good friend, cousin, in-law, etc). I am very reasonable - just ask.

~Happy Grave Finding

Hi thanks for your enquiry,
I only recently took over management of this memorial as the creator IT Matters was having to transfer over her memorials due to personal reasons and she didn't want the care just to be handed over to Find A Grave admin, I have no connection other than the above so am pleased that someone connected to the family can take over her care

Elmer Aro
Hello. Thank you for pointing out that Elmer Aro has been put on their twice. The problem is he has a stone in two different cemeteries. I don't know which cemetery he is buried in. I do know some Aro people who I think are related to him. I will try to find out. I hate to delete mine since Oscar Sandstrom has died and his daughter-in-law is trying to take over. This is about the 4th time I have visited this issue. I will try to resolve it. Janine

RE: Col David H. Johnson
I'm glad I could help.

I wanted to fill all the request I had claimed before the snow moved in. If the snowfall is as expected it will be a while before I'll be able to take photos at Arlington National Cemetery.

RE: Ingaborg Anderson - Oneota Cemetery
Thanks for the offer. Actually, I'm not doing much on here anymore. My late wife was from Minnesota and was related to the Anderson's. We worked these during the times when we visited Duluth. Doubtful if I will ever get back to Duluth. The other Andersons that are buried in this plot were my former mother-in-laws cousins. We had no way to know how Ingaborg was related. As of now it is a moot issue for me since I no longer have any connection to her family.

St. Louis Cemetery #3 photo requests
I see you made a photo request for St. Louis #3 cemetery. This is a massive cemetery so finding the grave without the location is an near impossible task. If you call the cemetery office and get the location, I can try to get photos for you. The office only gives that info to family members so I can't call for you.
