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 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

I'm currently working on a website with our family trees. It is free and easy to register. If you have a name in one of my virtual cemeteries, there may be much more in my site. Please come visit!

RE: JJ Tschudy
Not family that I know of (so far anyway)...I've just begun to work on linking the Tschudy family today. His father and my great-great-grandfather Carl Rudolph Schneider # 97843441 began as partners in the boot & shoemaking business on the corner of Adams & Market in Monroe, which in time he became full owner and his son, Albert, I believe, the grocery store. I'd like to try'n make one of those href-thingies that link folks within bios & obits who are part of each other's story. Thank you for asking.

RE: Ara Vanderbosch 95649036
Connie...Thanks for he edit. Unfortunately, this is not a ancestor of mine either. I just happened to have the obit attached to an obit of my family member. I love helping others with ancestry and if this helps break that wall of info they have been looking for, I feel like I helped someone else. Have a great day!

RE: Marion Leinberger Wood #105412916
Thank you for doing this work I like using Find-a-Grave for researching! Yes, Marion's paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Bitz Leinberger, is younger sister to my 3rd Great Grandmother, Catherine Bitz Grossman (so we're kinda like family).

RE: Ole Fladeland
Not related - just doing the obits for Emmet County GenWeb and adding them to Findagrave at the same time. I was really excited to find Ole's grave so that I could link him to his wife and daughters. One of those "sidelines" I sometimes find myself following . . . - Merllene

RE: Einar Behrents
I'm not a relative, but I remember
Einar and a daughter from my teenage years. I can't remember now how I got to his findagrave memorial, but I recognized it immediately. Just old good memories.

RE: Doris Faehnrich Haag
I have been working on the Nelson MN Cemetery and have no connection to the family. No need to transfer.

RE: Transfer
He is related to my cousin on her dad's side. If you would like to transfer that is ok with me.
