Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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!

RE: Chandlers
I'll be back in the Caneadea area in late August and will make a note to look closer at Laura Chandler's death date. I went ahead and added photos to the Clarence Chandler memorial that is on Find a Grave and made some edits and a link request to his mother Laura.

Hi Connie, I took photos of the stone for Laura and her son Clarence Chandler. I didn't see a stone nearby for David or Lewis Chandler. Someone else has taken a photo for David Chandler and his memorial says he is on the same stone as Ann. The Clarence Chandler on Find a Grave in this cemetery has dates that are very different than what is on the stone, so I'm not sure if there are two Clarence Chandlers in the cemetery. I can add pictures for Clarence, but wondering if another memorial should be made for him or if I should add the picture to the existing memorial. What are your thoughts?

Sarah...I made the change in spelling. I remember exactly where her marker is as I was fulfilling a photo request and took photos of surrounding stones. Circle Hill Cemetery is very large and many grave sites are still not recorded on Find A Grave. That particular kind of stone is always difficult to photograph and to read. I will try and remember to rephotograph when I am up there in the spring. Too much snow and I am down south!

Thanks for updating and linking Pauline.

If you would like to transfer her to me (# 48104930) I will take care of her memorial. She would be a gr gr aunt of my husband's. As far as I know she didn't have any children.

I know it's outside of the rules so I will leave it up to you.

Thanks again for all your work.

RE: Appolonia Hammerbacher
Thanks for the transfer and the suggestion. I knew how to submit edits but not for transfers. Now I know.

Thanks again for all your work. My mother-in-law was thrilled when I found her and her parents.
