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).
Ivor Hadley Memorial Gale; Thank you for the information about the marriage of Ivor and Berniece Catherine Miller. I have added information and perhaps you will want to visit and review it. Dave Duncan of Paonia Colorado
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
Norman T. Young, Forest Home Cemetery Gale, the memorial for Norman T. Young that I created I believe is that same as Norman T. Young # 123911886 and the VA records for my memorial are incorrect. I have deleted my memorial and sent a SAC to update Norman T. Young # 123911886. The VA has no record for the correct Norman T. Young # 123911886. Thanks... Michael
