Bio and Links
Bio Photo Click on the tomb for more info. I've been seriously interested in family genealogy for a long time. If I've added memorials to non-family members it's because I was there and had a camera while looking for my family (I'm a grave walker). Some markers catch my eye and I must photograph them. I try hard to capture the Veterans when I find them...because they deserve it. I'm not interested in building an empire of memorials for the sheer sake of numbers so I'm more lax over turning them over to family than Find A Grave's rules. I also don't create memorials for living people for reasons I believe are obvious. If a relative is closer to you than me I have no problem turning them over. If they are at all relation to you and not me then just ask, tell me your relation and they are yours. Just try to be polite, it'll take you farther. Especially if someone fulfills your photo request. I try not to add recent deaths too quickly, doesn't allow friends to post their friends memorials (I don't look at the Obits each morning first). I'd like to thank the volunteers who have brought me photos from far away, you are wonderful. You may use these photos for any non-profit reasons (, findagrave spouses, etc)
I've been happily married for 42 years to a wonderful woman who keeps me in check. (I need to be kept in check.) I'm an NRA Endowment Life Member, PADI SCUBA Divemaster, Extra Class HAM radio operator and 4th dan Judo black belt. I wish I could fly, parachute, play an instrument and dance but I can't...or haven't yet. I also make a mean breakfast!

RE: Lindblom / Linfbloom
Thanks Mark, this is certainly going to give me lots to work on to see how many I can tie back to our Lindblom/Lindbloom family. I've located two obits and have added them to the files.
Thanks again.

RE: Schafer
Mark - Thank you for transferring the maintenance of my grandparents Harry and Carrie Schafer into my care.

Question: How do I add two more children to their pages (and then those same two siblings to my late aunt and mother's pages?)

I've duplicated a memorial and put her in the wrong cemetery. You have added a beautiful picture of her on my memorial that I hope you will transfer to the other memorial. We don't want to lose that.
My old memorial that I am going to delete, is 111581437 and the one that will stay is 110525962.
I have already transferred all the family ties over. I will wait until you remove and add the photo from mine. Thank you so much.
