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. If I am not a relative, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.

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.

Note: 99.9% of all Find A Grave contributors are wonderful people. However, there are a few people who operate outside of the Find A Grave guidelines. There are some people who create memorials for relatives and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find their relatives and create memorials for them in a given cemetery. Then after the relative is found, the person sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. This has happened to me on more than one occasion! 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 your relatives 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.

Dorothea Broenen #106189279
Greetings, Janet -

Thank you for the updates to the Broenen Family. No, they aren't my direct line, but part of peripheral research.

If you have a chance, could you please confirm the year of death for Dorothea?

I am curious, because it appears her husband re-married while she was still living, which means they divorced.

Thank you
If I came out sounding harsh I do apologize. We've always gotten along fine & I don't want to ruin it really. I was just curious as I already had pictures on them, however the pictures which I am updating slowly (my winter project to go through all the pictures that I took on Father's Day seeing no one wanted to do anything special at home with me. The pictures of the stones are of course, taken before the Digital era. I think you'd be proud of the job I'm in the process of. Take a look at either my Dad's memorial (Eugene Nickolai) or his Dad (Albert, he owned Nickolai's Meat Market in Wautoma) Melvin & Eldora Nero too! I shot all right from ground level & boy, did I feel that the whole next week!

I'm not mad, never really was although it sounded like it when I re-read it, sorry. Heck, by now you know I always sound grumpy! ;-)

BTW, the parents of my in laws that you transferred over to me, you said I had to click on what to ask seeing they are relation to keep those? I looked but I didn't see what you said would happen!

And now with that today, I again wish you a Happy Thanksgiving & that is from the heart.

I see you added a photo to one of my families memorials, namely, Fratzke, Nickolie, Malson that I've found so far. I would appreciate it if you would remove them, especially Hulda's as you have to tip you head to one side just to be able to read them. I have new photo's I've been editing to replace my old ones. In the future please don't add photo's to my Memorials unless you would please just ask first when you see my name at the bottom. I memorialize people I have known who impacted my life some way along with Family members & since there was no request for a picture for those graves I don't understand why you would have added yours when pictures were already there. I believe you can look at my list of Memorials, & if you've added anything to any of the names on my list where I already had a picture or pictures there already to please remove them.

Thank you! Have a good Thanksgiving!

RE: Edith Schultz
I have researched Edith's middle name and have come to the conclusion it is Erma, not Irma. I hope you agree

RE: Caroline Sweet #108242800
I removed the picture but I am a bit confused. I downloaded a couple of spreadsheet from the cemetery association and they list two Katie which is probably the source of confusion.

Taplins in Wautoma Union Cemetery
Hi Janet,

It's nice to meet you. Thank you for offering to transfer Taplin relatives. The Taplins are distant relatives for me but much closer to my Aunt Allie Taplin Muller Oberle. I'm happy to leave things as they are. Now that we can link family up to one another...I can suggest edits and hopefully help others along the way.

Thanks so much...

Charles H Taplin Jr & Sr
Hi Janet...sorry I didn't see your notes sooner...yes, Charles and Charles are father and son. I've been researching this branch of my family from one of my relatives...finding Electa's obituary helped tremendously, although I still don't know who her parents are.

Good luck with everything...

Hi ... I got your comment and just wanted to verify that he wasn't possibly listed on his parents (?) stone. I originally got the info off an online transcription somewhere - but for the life of me I don't remember where. Is there anyway to tell if he has family there? If you're sure he's not there and not listed on someone else's stone Sac me again and I'll delete him.
