|Bio and Links|
I have been involved in researching my family history for the past 25 years. When I found Find A Grave I considered it a wonderful new tool and now I'd like to contribute to this virtual cemetery with bio's and photos of my own beloved family members.|
Many of the memorials I manage connect to me in some way. That means I really want to talk to you if you connect too! Feel free to contact me through EDIT - Suggest... - or directly by e-mail.
My trees include a big connection to Norway and the names: Norby/e, Johnson (on both sides - oh joy!), Lien, Wigen, Nummedal, Behrents and Daehlin.
My husband's trees (Richard Ferris) connect to Scotland/Ireland, early America, Sweden & Norway. Names include: Ferris, Pillsbury, Donaldson and Thorson.
I'm currently working on a website with our family trees. It is free and easy to register. (All you need is a name and your choice of username and password.) If you have a name in one of my virtual cemeteries, there may be much more in my site. Please come visit!
Pet Peeve Section:
1. My husband and I travel to cemeteries, sometimes long distances, only to take photos of relatives' graves, and then we snap a few more that are nearby. I use Photoshop to enhance every photo. However, I have just a small camera and am not a professional photographer. If you take a photo that is distinctly better, I'm willing to remove mine, but have the common courtesy to let me know. Don't use up a second of the precious 5 photo limit to post basically the same photo.
2. I am so sad that managers of memorials interpret "guidelines" as "rules". Memorials should rest with family, regardless of the relationship. If there is a controversy, then use the guidelines to interpret whether someone is more closely related than someone else. Do you really want to become a Fallen Graver and leave 50,000 memorials to someone else, equally unrelated? If you send me an edit and are related in any way, please let me know. I am eager to transfer memorials!

Connie, I liked your suggestion and simplified her last name, There was not an edit to add Helen's husband waiting to be approved but linked not only her first husband but her second one as well. Take a look and let me know if there should be any adds/changes.

Thank You so much for your pictures posted to Their memorials. They are excellent!
|Bryan Anderson||Clarence and Orlando Serum|
I have more! May I have permission to use the photographs in any publications I might have in the future for the headstones for Clarence and Orlando Serum? Both have roots in Selbu, Norway and served in WWI.

I am researching a list of WWI veterans having roots from my grandfather's hometown of Selbu, Norway. Anton E. Serum is on my list.
My I have permission to use your monument photograph on findagrave.com for this individual?
