Bio and Links
Bio Photo The very first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to all of you who send me edits for the memorials I manage. I check Find A Grave almost every day and absolutely love it when edits come my way. I use the edit feature often, and it always lifts my spirits when I see them go through. It reinforces that this site is a community effort and we are all working together to make it as complete and accurate as possible.

I have been interested in genealogy for 30 years and have written over a dozen family history books, the first one in 1979. The majority of our family vacations in the 1980s & 1990s revolved around cemeteries and visiting relatives. (Our kids ask why there are so many photos of them posing on headstones!)

When I joined FindAGrave, I kept busy adding our own family members. I knew where most were buried but some had to be searched for. In 2013, my husband and I took a trip through Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota and, in the process, found lots of folks to whom we were not related. I've created memorials for them adding as much additional information as I could find. We were able to fill dozens of photo requests; it felt good being able to pay forward all of the requests that volunteers have filled for us.

I endeavor to make memorials as complete as possible, including headstone photos, bios and links. (I have received permission for obits unless the newspapers are out of print or the copyrights have expired.)

Most of my memorials are family members, but I'll happily consider transfers if you are more closely related.

You are welcome to use any of the photos I have posted but I would enjoy hearing from you if you do use any.

FindAGrave has added so much to my life. I love being a part of it!

Sanford Wicks
Hi Nancy

You recently sent me a connection for Sanford Wicks (1876) connecting him to his father Sanford W Wicks (1846) and his mother. There is some confusion on Sanford Jrs mother. My information is from a family group sheet compiled by Sanford's daughter in law that gives her name as Mary (May) Blodgett. Since I have not been able to resolve this confusion of records I have not made the connection. Any help you can give me on the family would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Chester & Sylvia Smith
I am always disappointed when I don't find a memorial stone but at least we do have a exact location so that does help. This is something I really enjoy doing and will continue as long as I can. You are very welcome for the photo. Have a great day!!

Chester & Sylvia Smith
Thank you for finding out the information on where they are buried. Otherwise, Greenlawn would not have helped me locate them. They do not have a memorial stone. I have attached a photo of a tree. They are located just to the left of that tree.

RE: obituaries for Tobiason family members
Yes, I am related to the Tobiasons. Anders Tobiason married Oline Andersdatter, and I am through Oline's brother Arne Anderson.

Again, thank you for posting what you have for the Tobiasons.

obituaries for Tobiason family members
I want to thank you so much for posting the obituaries (at least I assume it was you) for many of the Tobiason family members.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
