Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in eastern Nebraska and have researched my family genealogy, as well as my husband's side of the family for a few years now.

Many of my summers off working at a middle school are spent traveling to where our ancestors are from, hoping to find something more about them.

The virtual cemeteries are of my dad's ASPEGREN ancestors, my mom's WARD ancestors, my husband's father's ROTH ancestors, and my husband's mother's PEEBLER ancestors.

I am also researching the family farm where I grew up, originally homesteaded by the David H. Goodrich family in 1873. My Great Grandparents George & Suzanne Ward bought the family farm in 1921 - north of Geneva, Nebraska.

I think this site has been great for having a place to share what I have found, for the present and future generations to come.

Abraham and Electa Harrington
Just wanted to say hi, I'm your very distant cousin. I am descended from Abraham and Electa Harrington through their youngest son, Joseph. His family stayed in Shaftsbury, VT until my grandfather moved to nearby NY in the mid-20th century. Looks like Joseph's brother wandered further away.

Thank you so much for the photo of Sarah's tombstone and where Jacob W. Kerns is buried.

I appreciate all you do for those of us who are far from our ancestors hometowns.

Thank you for all you do on Find A Grave.

Hello Again. I am sorry I do not know the history of the photo. I am guessing my mother's parents had this photograph from when they lived in Lincoln, NE. It is approx. 8 x 6, on heavy card stock & professionally taken tho I can no longer read the mark of the studio.
I appreciate the historical look back the photo provides. It is so interesting to me.
If I find information or history of the photo, I will post you a note.
Kind Regards, Sally

Hello, I am not certain if this is a relative of yours. I found an old photograph of my mother's and uploaded it this John Albert Aspegren's page.
I thought perhaps if this is family to you, you might be interested. :)
Kind Regards, Sally

RE: Descendant of Johan Zaher (aka John Sears)
So then you and my mom ARE sharing DNA. Hope you'll upload to Gedmatch so we can see the segment and figure out if it's through Sears or another line. Your tree on ancestry doesn't show Sears lineage...

DNA re: Johannes Zaher
Are you familiar with If so, have you uploaded your husband's DNA test there? It's free to do so. You'll get more matches, as people from all 3 testing sites upload there (FTDNA, 23andMe, ancestryDNA). Plus you can view the chromosome segments you match, so it's easier to locate triangulated groups (where 3 or more people share a common segment) and determine common ancestors. I hope you'll upload. If you do, please drop me a note & let me know the Gedmatch ID # so I can do a one to one comparison between him and my mom. Thanks!!
