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

RE: Elmer Aro
Hello, I have recently found out that Oscar has died and I can't talk to him about this matter. I will have to contact an administrator on this. Thanks! Janine

RE: David Clark
David Clark was born to William Peck and Arletta Groves.

Around 1920 the Pecks divorced and Arletta had to put the youngest 3 boys into an orphanage. David Peck was adopted by the Clark family.

In all the records I can find he only used the last name Clark. However, I included his birth name of Peck too.

RE: Mary Kucza
It's perfectly fine! I actually forgot I requested a transfer because I'm managing quite a few graves and doing family research.

Helga Torvanger
I already gave a suggestion as Helga being the wife of Martin Torvanger (Kane Cem, Kitsap, WA) via the EDIT suggestion. But there are a couple other things I don't know how to do using the EDIT.
I would suggest that Helga maiden name was Langland, not Tangland. I base this on the Langland family also being from Miner Co, SD, where Martin came from. Also a Bainbridge Island tree having Helga as "LANGLAND".
For Helga's husband Martin, I'm sure his mother was not Helga, but Martha FROIEN Torvanger, buried at Belleview Cem in Miner Co, SD.

Ruth E. Nichols at St. Mary's Cemetery
Hi! I'm not sure if you had a photo request in for Ruth E. Nichols (Hannon) or if it was someone else. I went and photographed the grave yesterday, and today the photo request is missing.

The photo currently posted shows the gravestone wet and it is not all one color.

Also there:

Joseph A. Hannon, 1900 - 1939

If you add photo requests for them I will post the photos I took.

RE: Transfer of Alma -
Thank you so much! :) I was not aware I could transfer the other way, so thank you for telling me that, too.

RE: Thomas Stanhope Johnson
Thanks for cluing me in to that!

Thanks for your email however Thomas is not listed as his own sibling - the greyed out portion you see is what Find A Grave is doing. They list all siblings - including the one "you" have open. Thus he is only listed once.

Its the new way that Find A Grave does siblings - you don't add them. Find A Grave does them when you link parents.
