(GPS Guide - way at the bottom of this bio)|
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 SAC (Suggest A Correction) 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 connect to Scotland/Ireland, early America, Sweden & Norway. Names include:
Ferris, Pillsbury, Donaldson and Thorson
When you click on the Plot link, you'll see the "latitude" & "longitude" boxes. It will suggest: ddd.dddddd (my device gives me five digits after the decimal and that works just fine.) The "d"s refer to characters, not necessarily numbers. The first character is a "+" in the latitude box (although it works fine without it, as it is assumed). The first character in the longitude is a "-" (a hyphen) and MUST be used.
Longitude: -88.82451 (Don't forget the "-")
Back at the memorial page I always click the new GPS link to be sure it tests out okay and actually takes me to the vicinity of the grave within the cemetery. Look for a big green arrow.(You can change from map view to satellite view and practically see the headstone!) If you enter something incorrectly or leave off the "-" you'll see the green pointer in some crazy spot, and you just go back to "edit plot" to correct your mistake. (If I have sent you coordinates, I have already tested them and know they point to the right spot.)
I love this feature. Even with cemetery-plot locations one must still walk the graves to find people, but with a Satellite view, one gets the overall view of the section and spot within the section where your person resides. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Requesting permission to use your photos of the Antisdel's cemetery markers in our personal tree. Alvin is Bruce's cousin and the photos will make a great addition to our tree.

Thank you so very much for the article about Lionel P. Adams. I am thrilled to have it and it's added to his memorial. I consider it a treasure and am blessed that you shared. God bless you.

memorials now have gravestone photos. I requested and a person named Kate took them. She did a great job I think. ~Terry

Ellen was my great-grandmother's first cousin. Would love to hear from you when you have time as I assume Ellen is your relative. Thanks!

I have created the link to his father. Your first request back in May must not have made it through as I am just learning of this.
Will also transfer.
|Chad Justesen||Roy Christianson|
Thanks for the links for Roy's parents. I've updated the page.
