Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 30 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away twelve 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 11,600 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: Leavenworth
Certainly. Each week you are allowed to make 20 photo requests on Find A Grave and I'm hoping that you will use them to request photographs of Leavenworth National Cemetery memorials. It would be especially helpful if you requested photos of memorials you've created so that they're complete. And the photo requests help the volunteer photographers know where to shoot in the cemetery. Does that make sense? MA

RE: Memorial# 155174868 no cemetery
Sorry didn't mean to upset anyone. One person has deleted their dupe. I will just leave the corrections to you, unless want to leave them both.
Good luck

Thanks for the note. I don't see a duplicate for Debbie (unless I'm missing something), so looks like your memorial is fine. I sent you a request to add her parents in the relationship section.

RE: Robert Bryant # 154627932
You're welcome. You may or may not know that Bob's wife Billie passed away on the 3rd of November. Her memorial number is 154627291. The base is in place for her headstone, and I will check on it when I am in that part of the county again and post a photo. It should be ready before our winter weather begins.
