Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired and loving it. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers. Photography of the markers is my primary focus.

I prefer going out and photographing markers instead of dealing with fraudulent memorials with unverified information and subsequent bogus family links. Please help by refraining from creating bogus memorials and requesting links when you have little or no PRIMARY evidence of a burial.

Requests to link families will be denied if I have no verification of accuracy.

Requests to add links with Burial unknowns in ANY form will be denied, per Find a Grave Policy. Disguising a Burial Unknown to look 'legitimate' usually is very evident and will be reported to management. Adding 'guesses' as to dates, cemeteries and location of deaths is fraud. If the burial is not a KNOWN BURIAL identified with an actual death date, it IS a Burial Unknown.

Adding family links without adequate research and documentation tends to create MULTIPLE errors that require hours of work to remove, if they get corrected at all. It is the responsibility of the requestor to do the research, not the memorial manager who did the photos.

A denial is not personal rejection of you. Accept it and move on.

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.

Mother and Father Bakke, Mamre Cemetery
Hi, I'm sure you know this already, but Father and Mother Bakke are Erick Jonassen Bakke and Anna (Melby) Bakke. There is an interesting write-up on page 861 of the "History of Dunn County". I enjoyed my visit to Mamre Cemetery, Thanks - Dave

Mine's going the easy route when possible. Thanks. We are in TN at the river and it's crazy in the 90's with humidity high but love laying in the water each day.

RE: Arnold Berg
I deleted my duplicate memorials and put my photos back on the original memorials. I will wait for the computer to update them.

RE: Mr. Freeman
Thank you very much for the information you provided. With the condition of his death it's starting to sync with the problems he ended up with after the civil war. Your help is great.

Freeman - Evergreen Cemetery Menomonie
I am hoping you have some source information on a memorial you established - Memorial #117435417. I just recently requested a photo but the volunteer could not find it nor any data on it. I recognize because of the age, it quite possibly is gone but was hoping there is more data on him in your resource.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

John & Mary Stringer
Melanie, Thank you very much for searching and photographing the area where John and Mary Striger are buried even though there is no headstone. My husband and I know the work involved as we have fulfilled over 300 requests at one cemetery in our area. We appreciate your work as a volunteer. Billie and Leon
