Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest into Genealogy spans several years. It has been only through great effort, financial expenditures, and thousands of hours of work that I have been able to piece together my family history. Some of the results are evident through the memorials I have created in their memory on this website.

I believe in sharing my finds with those interested parties. This helps to ensure the previous generations of my family are remembered and not forgotten in the mists of time. Historical records belong in the public domain and I do not believe that images of headstones in public cemeteries should be copyrighted. Family History is for all to enjoy and benefit from.

Because of this, all the records in my tree are free for use. It is hoped that through my efforts, it will make yours easier. All I ask in return is that you do your own thorough research to ensure the information contained within mine is in fact that of the individual you are researching.

I don’t believe in the “numbers” game. Due to this belief, I believe it to be unethical to create memorials for people who are recently deceased unless you are a direct family member or have their explicit permission to do so. Having said that, I am appreciative of their efforts to bring the older burials to life. This is a great help to researchers.

If you have questions, please contact me through this site and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.

Changes to page
Hi. A friend sent me a link to my best friend Vicki Lynn Laidlaw's page on this site. I added some pictures and misc. Now when I click on the link my friend sent me, it's changed. It's now showing the pics I added and not the one you added. I liked how it was with the single picture you posted before I added pics. Is there a way to get it back to how it was? Are you related to Vicki? Thanks for your help.

Albert Richard Sorenson

I have information that one of my relatives, Evelyn Jean Leisure b.1932 was married to Albert. They were married in 1953 and divorced in 1970. I wonder if you might have any information about them?

Thank you,

Greenwood Cemetery Olav Ystesund
Please check spouses for
Olav Ystesund 42692132
Wife Nora E Skauge Ystesund 42692083 and
Wife Nora Stensrud Ystesund 42692112.
He was married to two different Noras I think. However the birth dates are the same in the memorial but they are different on the two different grave stones. At least that is what it seems like.

More Beckstrands
I've found and more Beckstrands while wandering through cemeteries this summer. Feel free to view them at my profile page under contributions area by last name. Thanks again for the note - whenever I see them, I stop for a moment and wonder if they are someone you are searching for. MHH

RE: Elna Johnson
Just put two Beckstrand on in Acoma Zion cemetery in McLeod county, please check and see if these are related.

I'll check for the correct number on the Johnson's for you and get that to you. Not being family, I don't know if they'd take me seriously, but would be happy to capture the image!

Online tonight...
