Please let me know if I have made any errors and I will correct them. I am happy to add information to any of the memorials.|
Please use the edit tab on the memorial page for corrections, additions or transfers.
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. (FAG guidelines) If you can, please request changes through the edit tab on the memorial.
This is such a great way to find all those people who have gone before us and just get lost over the succeeding generations.
I look forward to finding many more of my own "lost" relatives that have gone before me and are waiting to be found in a little cemetery somewhere. I hope that I may have found some of yours here in Charles Mix County.

Can you add a memorial link to John Albertus Brink? Raymond E. Brink should be listed as one of the children. John and Effie had three sons, Abraham, Raymond and William. Thanks.
This is the link for John Albertus Brink:

|Del Gran||Photo for First James River Norsk Lutheran Cemetery|
We had some communications about a month ago regarding the Mhyre family and I added you as a Find A Grave "friend". I currently have a problem with a photo being approved by Find A Grave and I am seeking an unbiased opinion from one that I greatly respect in the Find A Grave community of volunteers. Although I agree with the reason and intent of Find A Grave guidelines, I also feel "common sense" should prevail and not apply a good general rule to every situation. If you do not agree, please feel free to express your opinion.
To make it easy, the photo in question is also my profile photo and whether you think it is appropriate to use it as a Find A Grave cemetery photo for a cemetery that was abandoned and returned to farm land in 1940. The details follow but you may not need.
Your profile includes "This is such a great way to find all those people who have gone before us and just get lost over the succeeding generations. I look forward to finding many more of my own "lost" relatives that have gone before me and are waiting to be found in a little cemetery somewhere."
This is the way I feel about my great-grandfather and 11 others who were buried in a cemetery that was later converted into farm land. There are undoubtedly thousands of descendants, like me, that don't know what happened to an ancestor. Now that my great-grandfather's sad fate has been determined, I want to be sure that the fate of his headstone, along with that of the others, is documented so that their descendants can share and save them considerable time searching and wondering without an answer. In addition, I am hoping that the public visibility results in others adding their links and memories to those that have had their headstones, and the entire cemetery, disappear in 1940.
Here is the problem, I wanted a nice photo for the cemetery home page. I found what I thought was appropriate, licensed the photo, and added a caption for this cemetery. However, Find A Grave is rejecting my photo submission for the cemetery as "inappropriate" and suggests that I submit a photo of the main gate, cemetery sign, monument, etc. Obviously none of these exist, not even sure anyone can locate the cemetery any closer than Jamesville Township. Each township consists of 36 sections, each measuring one square mile or six miles square. So, the "cemetery" is somewhere within a 36 squire mile area.
Due to the lack of a physical or Find A Grave cemetery, another Find A Grave member created memorials in another cemetery with a similar name but in the wrong Township. Recently, I had 11 of these 12 Find A Grave memorials transferred to me and then created a new cemetery on Feb 19 and transferred the 11 memorials to the correct cemetery.
The history on the home page and Nikolai Larson's memorial #14396933 is a "work in progress". It started as an explanation on my great-grandfather's memorial and I am in the process of "cleaning it up" to provide a good history and explanation on the cemetery home page with something to be added to all 11 and maybe the 12th whose descendant I am in touch with who is an Olsberg, Find A Grave member "Corey in Nebraska" with documentation that his great-grandfather was buried beside my great-grandfather.
Sorry to bother you, but would appreciate your opinion and suggestions.

|Del Gran||Your Newspaper Clipping from 1953 Solved Surname Change from Erickson to Myhre|
Your newspaper clipping from 1953 in memorial #81096356 for Edward Myhre documented the change in surname from Erickson to Myhre and solved the puzzle that allowed linking these families together. One would find a "Erickson" family in the 1880 census and then a Myhre family in the 1900 and later censuses but establishing that these were one and the same would not have been achieved without your newspaper clipping.
The members of the Myhre, Schanche, and Libakken families have now been linked together as a result of your 60-year old newspaper clipping. We all thank you and I also want to thank you for the transfer.

|Connie Kappelman McKean||Charles F Witt|
you took the picture of the headstone for Charles F Witt ... there is information on the one pillar but I can't make it out ... it looks like it says Carl and gives a birth and death date ... then it looks like there is writing below it as well ... can you make out any of the writing ... it is for Find A Grave Memorial# 69123246 ... thank you so much ...
|Hooked On Family||RE: Bullis memorial|
You did the research to link them... Find A Grave merges if you ask. Or just let the other person know the links. It would be too bad to lose your work.
Sorry...I'm not the Find A Grave police. It just gets confusing when you want to link up a child or whatever.
