Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired teacher from Wisconsin who became interested in genealogy in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to learning more about ways to find out information about my ancestors and my husband's ancestors.

I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. Please state how you are related. Transfer requests outside of Find A Grave guidelines will be considered on an individual basis.

When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo. I also use the abbreviation OSSW (on same stone with) frequently when two or more people share the same stone.

I am granting permission to use any photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. It would be appreciated if you would acknowledge that the photo came from me. Please feel free to use them on family trees and other websites.

*****************************************

Please check out the virtual cemeteries that I have been working on. If you have any information that you would like to share with me, please use the edit key or send me a public message through Find A Grave.

*****************************************
I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

*****************************************

There are some contributors who create memorials for individuals and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find these individuals and create memorials for them in the correct cemetery. Then after the individual is found, the contributor sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. It's pretty unscrupulous, but it's done. Please, don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking countless photos.

If I happen to find one of the people you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.

If there are duplicate records in a cemetery, a request will be sent to Find A Grave to merge the memorials. All the information, photos, etc. will be preserved. Find A Grave will decide which memorial to keep, which usually is the memorial that was created first in the correct cemetery. This usually takes about 1-2 weeks.

I do not know how to go through the edit tab. I get there and get kind of confused, so if you could let me know how to do it I would really appreciated it. Thank you Laura

Janet,

In your commentary on the site for Eliza Ann "Elijia" Burdick Gibson, the last child listed is Mary (Randarford). Mary's married name was RANDORF. She and her husband Herbert L. Randorf along with several of their children are buried in the Plainfield Cemetery.

Dear Janet Marie,

I thank you so much for your diligence and hard work in capturing some of my Wisconsin family for posterity. I reside in California and haven't seen the graves since a family trip in 1962.

Your photo work is excellent and thoughtful. I became aware of its existence through the FamilySearch.org web site and now, through Find A Grave. I can now provide a link for my family to "see" their past.

Again, thank you. Kind regards, Christie P.

Hello,
I have changed the burial to unknown until such time as I can research the burial grounds for Artemus Find A Grave 117538991 and Anna E (Frank) Adams Find A Grave 117539461.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Happy Hunting!
CJ

Your comment about a large stone was funny, the ground level stone was completely buried and a lot of dirt remains in the pics.

RE: Emma Knutson # 110212103
Our family surname Knutson, means son of Knut. We also have Norwegian Andersons and Swedish Andersons, meaning son of Anders. Surnames can really be fascinating. I found this website helpful in understanding family surnames:
