Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family's history for years. Many of my memorials are of my relatives and people I have known. My family has many old photos which I have posted so that others can enjoy them. I try to personalize the memorials as much as possible by adding bios, details discovered through ancestry research, and the personal remembrances of people who knew them.

My father's mother (Olive Kullgren, 1897-1986) left many fascinating photos of her youth in Colorado and later in Southern California, where she became private secretary to Edward L. Doheny Sr. in 1925, after the departure of his previous secretary Miriam Lerner. I spent many hours pouring over her photos, trying to identify family and other people in them, and created memorials for the people I was able to identify, such as for her lifelong friend, Eunice Winifred Morgan, and two friends from Denver who served in World War I (Charles Matthew Klaiber and Wesley Louis Murray). Her photos touched and inspired me.

I'm currently working on cemeteries in Shawano County, Wisconsin, where my mother's father (Einer Louis Tulberg) grew up. I'm researching the individuals buried there to provide family links, obituaries, full birth/death dates and full names. One challenge is tracing the maiden names and parents of married women.

My family's names are Boetius and Blad (Denmark), Kullgren (Sweden) and Morrison (Scotland) on my father's side. On my mother's side, my ancestors are Tullberg (Sweden); Houm, Engebretsen, Kjerneby, and Vestby (Norway); and Stolz and Klein (Germans from Russia). Other surnames close to me are those of my second cousins - Hollands, Scott, and Zook on my father's side, and my mother's North Dakota cousins (Schacher, Wagner, Enockson).

RE: Shawano County
I have used that site before and had a obit or two sent to me but haven't used it for quite some time and had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder. I will probably have to do some more Shawano hunting this winter.

Shawano County
Gale, Do you live in or around Shawano county? My great-great grandfather came from Shawano county. His name was Frank Lade and there are quite a few Lade's in cemeteries there. I would be interested in having you try to look up some info for me at a later time if possible. You can send me an e-mail if you like. My address is on my contributor page.

You're very welcome Gale. I'm glad I could help out. Put in another request or send me an e-mail at a later time and I will see if there is a gravestone for her.

RE: Otto and Emma Malueg
Glad to help. I looked for your request for Marjean Becker #148117384 and have not found her. Do you have any clues that could help? Did she live in the area, as Lodi and Johnson Creek are some distance apart. Just wondering if she is in a different cemetery. Let me know I'll try to help. Dale

Evelyn Brunelle
Hello again Gail

I just left the cemetery office , where I was told Evelyn is buried with Joseph, in section K, Plot 168, Grave 12.

I went back to his gravesite and checked again for Evelyn, but it appears she has no stone of her own, but rests peacefully with Joseph, under his stone.

At least we know where she is, and you can now update their memorials with their exact location.

I hope this helps you.
