RE: Baby Boy Palmer
You're welcome. I envy that you have the time and talent to bring all the memorials online for this particular cemetery in Forest Lake. Especially the GPS coordinates and the plot locations to help people find the specific burials.

In the very early days of Find A Grave, I found and documented the locations of all cemeteries within Chisago County. But I also traveled out into surrounding counties because some cemeteries were misrepresented or not online at all. People were "making up" cemeteries so I thought it would be important to get them established, even though I would only add gate photos and some notable markers photos I shot while on site.

After they were setup and in the proper place, I realized I had my hands full with 42 cemeteries in "my" county. So the out-of-bounds locations sat, waiting for others to pick up the torch! And here you are! Thanks! :)

As you know, families spread out in the area and members will be found in different counties. I am glad to help link those who ventured out from the original settlements in Taylors Falls and Center City.

Best regards,

Robert Chudek, Director
Chisago County Historical Society

RE: Emma Andersen
Thanks for doing a thorough search, and I appreciate your reply that the headstone not located in that cemetery. I will now put on my detective cap and see if her memorial is located elsewhere.

I put in some edits from my family tree connecting parents and children tonight. Yes, Frank and August are Jonas and Lottie's sons. August was named for his uncle August who was my great grandfather. I love watching your photographed percentage go up!

RE: Elvir Kazeck
Glad to have helped, Devon, as you can see it looks like the marker was partially and maybe completely buried until recently. Someone went through the cemetery either last fall or this spring and uncovered a lot of markers, luckily for us!

RE: Duplicates
I live in Saint Paul. I have many cousins who live in Forest Lake. As a family we have gone there to walk, share stories, and take pictures. At funerals we discuss family history. I was born late in my mother's life so keeping those memories is my labor of love. I have researched my family at the Historical Society and written three family history books. I also have a huge family tree on ancestry. I spent sometime last night linking parents to their children on Find A Grave. I have a little bio written for each person too. Yes it has to be a group effort. Your pictures have spurred me on to finishing getting my research on. Since I have memorials with links and bios with no pictures of the graves can I give you a list for photographs? I love how find a grave links with ancestry now.

132674492 for Emilia Anderson is the same person as Emilia "Millie" Anderson who has all her family links and bio. She has a linking number too. She was one of the first family members I added in 2003. I am updating my pages with new genealogy information. I appreciate all your pictures. I'm finally putting up the pictures I took this summer. I'm related to about 1/4 of the cemetery! I'm excited to get their links and bios up.

Added by Alison on Feb 08, 2015 7:20 PM

Thank you for all the wonderful pictures from the Scandinavian Cemetery in Forest Lake. I came to put up all our family pictures and found your wonderful photos, that fit so nicely with all the genealogical information I've been pulling together for the people buried there.

RE: Pluma McKenzie
You're welcome. If you create memorials for the two additional people on the marker I will gladly add photos. I didn't see that they had any created. Just send me a message if you do. Sincerely, Dale

RE: Pictures
You are welcome. I kind of ran out of time to keep looking, but I'm reasonably certain I will be there again. I did not see a request for a photo of the marker for William Bernard, D. 1977, but since he was buried next to Mary Bernard Lambert, I thought it may be useful if you did not already have it.

Happy Researching!

HI Devon,
I was able to photograph some of the headstones you requested, and sent them via email. I hope this helps with your research.

Your welcome!!:) I was just going thru the cemetery taking photos. Then I look at census, birth, and death on ancestry. Then I start connecting the families. I like also to be able to put the pieces together. It is a great feeling!:)
