Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogist at heart and try very hard to find information and links for the memorials I create (and am aware that I am human and do make mistakes) so I am happy to add information and make corrections.

I am also happy to do transfers but please don't send me a transfer request just stating "transfer it to me so I can update it" or ask me to link to "burial unknowns." Every edit or transfer request I receive gets researched and checked against the people buried near them to see if I can find a connection. So please if you have the information, use the edit tab to send the suggestion and THEN ask for the transfer.

Also I create memorials for families so please do not ask for a transfer because you are collecting Civil War soldiers, Pioneers, or whole cemeteries etc. These were real people, not something to be collected and I refuse to treat them as such.

Thank you to all the volunteers that have added photos, send corrections or shared stories or obituaries with me about the memorials in my care. And to those who kindly accept the many edit/link requests that I send out.

A note about photos:
I have been using the beta photo up-loader and one of its quirks is that it doesn't show you if there is already a photo on a memorial. I have tried to delete any duplicate photos I have accidentally added but if you find I have missed one please feel free to let me know.

Hi Mary - I have just re-started my family tree work. I had worked on this with my grandmother and mother but put aside when my mom passed in 2013 and have just restarted.

You have several members of my maternal grandfathers family posted by you on Find a Grave, I have lots of photos and am working on bios for the family members.

I wonder since you have so many - if perhaps you also happen to be related to me. The entries I have come across so far are -

Frank L Gifford - maternal great-grandfather
Ida A Bierline Gifford - maternal great-grandmother
Bonnie R Gifford MacFarlan - maternal great aunt
Horace "Mac" MacFarlan - maternal great uncle

These entries are all in Lakewood Cemetery. (MN)

Byrd A Gifford Townsend (maternal great aunt) is also buried in the same Lot and the person who listed her graciously moved her to me to manage.

I also found that you have posted Harry Weyman Gifford (SD) (spouse Maggie May) who I believe is the brother to my maternal great-grandfather Frank. The child listed however - does not seem to match - I have a son named Comelius - perhaps a sibling of Stacy?

Would you object to me managing the Gifford graves or would you like additional information for you to update?

Thank you

Christopher Boehme #141380221
I enjoy reading old newspapers at the Library of Congress website. Today, I found an obituary for Christ A. Boehme in the New Ulm Review (New Ulm, MN) of 11/29/1916. I believe it is the gentleman in your memorial. The age and location are correct. It describes this man as a generous man who cared for his community and he was thought highly of. It does have him survived by a wife and two children. I have attached a link, as I thought you might like to see it.
