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 being 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 started on 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!

You are quite welcome. Susan's brother George W. Booth is my husband's great grandfather.
|Richard Young||Memorial #141900339, Jessie Risor|
Many, many thanks for the memorial to Jessie!! She was my mother-in-law and we all loved her dearly. Many complain about their MIL but she became as close to me as my own mother. She was a wonderful woman and took in many non-family members who were in need of a temporary home and support. (One of these is the gentleman who later became Dr. Hook of Dr. Hook and his Medicine Band.) As an early teen-ager, my wife was asked by him (he had a broken leg and other injuries at that time) to make him a fried egg sandwich. Never having made one before, Karen carefully cooked the egg, making certain that she did not break the yolk. She proudly served it to him, he bit into it and yolk squirted everywhere! He often refers to that incident when he writes to the family.
Could I persuade you to transfer management of this memorial to me?
Again, many thanks,
|High Plains||RE: Thank You|
Thank you so much for the kind words! Wonderful encouragement, indeed!
About a month ago a very irate mother raked me over the coals for being so insensitive as to make a memorial and post an obituary (the son was in his mid 40's). I immediately removed the obituary but she was ready to "eat me up and spit me out". I think she wrote two more times even after I removed the obituary and transferred the memorial to her. I deleted the first note from my public message on Find a Grave and she gave me heck for that as she felt the only reason I deleted her message was that it made ME look bad???? I was kind of upset. I think it made HER look bad but I kept my mouth shut as anyone who has lost a child of any age deserves all the sympathy one can give.
So, again, thank you! It really makes my day to hear that a memorial that I made has been of some use to a family member or friend.
Are you related to John? I would be willing to transfer his memorial to you.

Hello - I added the Biography and added the edits. Thanks so much for sending them, I also love to add the information to the memorials. Please let me know if you would like a transfer.
|Tim Puckett||RE: Rosvold|
Thanks Nancy. Making some more progress on the Rosvold's. Tim
|Tim Puckett||Engel Hansson|
Hi Nancy - I hope all is going well with you. Engel is my 2nd great grand father. As with some of the other Rosvold's, can you pass him onto me and I can manage.
|Grave Recorder||RE: Elizabeth Rose Photo|
You're welcome. I'm happy to be of help. I was able to take it before the snow and bitter cold.
|JeanND||RE: Berg Family|
Thank you for further verification of Anne Stubson as Nels Berg's 1st wife. I had seen it before on another Tree, but couldn't find any confirmation. On the 1900 Census, Nels is shown as 'divorced' living with his brother, mother, daughter Clara, and two 'lodgers' - Ingri Stubson & her daughter, Agnes Stubson. The 1900 Census also shows Nels Berg's brother, Hans Berg, has John Stubson living with him. So the Bergs & Stubsons were very intertwined. I find it strange I can't find anything more on Anne Stubson, but admittedly haven't spent that much time on it.
That ledger from the Sand Hill Church must be a goldmine of information! What a great treasure - and I love your old photos!
