I have been working on my family history since about 2004, but have more recently begun using Find A Grave. I am excited by the possibilities Find A Grave offers for sharing information and making new discoveries. Surnames I am working on in particular are Ripke, Nehring, Anderson, Hubbard, Brewer, Brown, Wright, Scharff, Rahn, Carter, Robbins and Johnson.
I have documented several Hawaiian cemeteries while vacationing. I have no further information on any of those memorials. I am happy to add information or transfer memorials to you, if you are related.
RE: Svante M Carlson memorial Hi Kathy It´s a long story. First I can tell you that Svante M was born in a little village called Urshult in Unnaryd parish. There is a problem in Find A Grave - You can´t enclose more than a parish. I found Svante when I looked for two emigrants from Grysshult in Unnaryd parish - Nils Oskar Johansson and his sister Anna Linnea. They emigrated 1923 and they travelled to their Uncle Svante Carlson in Boyd,MN. NY passenger list. I´m a Little related to Nils Oskar but just very Little. I live about 30 km from Unnaryd so it´s rather easy to find people there. Just ask if you need anything. Regards Våge Ericsson firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your groundwork on the memorial of my great-grandmother, Ella May Winchester Spring. It's greatly appreciated. Would you mind transferring her memorial to my care? Thanks so much. Susann Spring
Berd/Bird Hi Kathy, I entered the record from a list of burials that I received from the county home. It was typed but I believe it was transcribed from a hand written ledger. I entered everyone on the list because I had a great deal of difficulty getting the information since the home is now closed or renamed, I really don't remember now. If you would like a copy of the list I would be more than happy to send it to you. You can contact me on Findagrave or my email is: email@example.com. Hope this is the person you are looking for. Sandy
