Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about 30 years, originally to help my brother out. He passed away eleven 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 10,000 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: Martha Jane Buscher # 100925399
Hi, I have deleted my memorial and added the photo to yours. Glad to have her with a relative. I had her son 27826119 listed also on mine, if you want to add. Thanks!

RE: William Beckman
He is buried in the mausoleum. This is a permanent marker on the outside of the mausoleum about six feet high.

RE: Curtis Dalton
My pleasure! Sorry for the delayed response. His plaque is attached to a large granite slab in the ground.

What is the advantage to having virtual cemeteries?

RE: Lorraine Brown # 141902601
Years and years ago there was a lot of buried folks with no stone. But in this day and age you would think families would mark the spots of their loved ones, but you would be amazed at how many don't.

RE: Sophie & Francis Fuller # 130888884
Is there a way to send you a photo w/out attaching it to a grave. Sophie & Frances Fuller have a tombstone almost connected to theirs. The name is Clarence R. Donaldson. I took a photo that shows how the stones are connected. Would you have an interest in this photo?

RE: Lorraine Brown # 141902601
That is her husband's next to her grave where there is nothing. That marker of her husband's came from the mortuary not the cemetery.

There is also a Elmer & Bertha Peterson died in 1968 and 1969 didn't know if you had a connection to them or not at first I thought it was your Emil. They are in the same area. Kathy
