Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 25 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away ten years ago. I am retired and am carrying on his legacy. It is amazing how much time I spend on the computer every day doing research.

I grew up in Kansas and moved to California around 1958 and have lived here ever since. My ancestry research started out mostly Swedish with some Norwegian. Now with about 8,800 people in my family tree, it includes many nationalities including Irish and English and Canadian. I am mostly focused on Kansas (around Vilas and Chanute, where my family grew up), and also Missouri, Nebraska, California, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.

My Swedish ancestors came over mostly around the 1870's from the mainland and the Island of Gotland and then settled in Kansas. My records go back to the 1500's.

My goal in Find-A-Grave is to provide as much information on a memorial as possible for the benefit of others. I use daily for research and have accumulated a lot of solid info.

RE: Rector Ely Fugit
You're welcome. I also put photos on Alvin Ely Fugit. I'm not real happy with the long shot. I'll probably retake it on a day when the sun is not so bright. Red polished granite isn't always photo friendly. Loretta

Just wanted to let you know that I'm filling your request for William and Stella. It may be of interest to you that their daughter, Enolla May is buried by them. I've made a memorial for her.

RE: Carolyn Harman
No big deal about making a few calls. But with the site being down for so long I wish I could have respond earlier.

Carolyn Harman
I checked with the Pinecrest Cemetery, spoke with David, he said that they did not have Carolyn Larson Harman in their cemetery. She is located in Roselawn Cemetery with her husband and mother inlaw, Della. Could you have a different Carolyn?
