|Bio and Links|
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 Ancestry.com daily for research and have accumulated a lot of solid info.

You are most welcome! Always glad to help.

Thanks for your note. It appears that the other memorial (with unknown burial location) was added in 2010 by a niece of Naomi's. My thought is that you could add the photo you took to the other memorial and notify the person that Naomi is buried at Lincoln Cemetery. Your choice, of course. (I am not related to Naomi, just happened to be looking up some items in the 1967 microfiche at the library).

On your request for Pearson in the Brantford cemetery, was you wanting the Pearson family or a certain person?

I added a new photo. Check it out. It's no longer upside down. As you can see they need to plant some grass seed. However, these lots are surrounded by large trees.

MHANS. Mr. Vollink's wife passed away last month. When I took his photo today , I also took hers. Her name was Marlene. Check out the link to her on his memorial. It came out ok except for the shadows.

I took the photo from behind the grave marker because of the shadows. When I looked at the picture after the download it was backwards. I rotated the picture when I got home but it still came out wrong, so I deleted it. I have 2 more photo request at the same cemetery for tomorrow and will take another one of yours. You are ok, it was not the caffeine. LOL. Thanks, Jim.
