|Bio and Links|
Shortly after the Moravian Church in the small town of Aurelia, ND. closed in the early 70's, an association was formed to look after the cemetery.|
It was renamed the Aurelia Community Cemetery. I was elected to the board a few years later when one of the original members died. About ten years ago I helped my sister work on our family tree and now when I found Find A Grave, I realized how helpful it could have been.
This information was mostly taken from the tombstones at cemeteries I have visited, with some added from our family tree and ND death index files. I also get information from the Mouse River Loop Genealogy Society, of which I am a member.Most of these cemeteries are located in northwestern North Dakota.
With over 75,000 names in about 675 cemeteries, I'm sure I have made some mistakes. If anyone finds any errors or has more information let me know.I have photos (about 60,000) of the markers of most of the graves added in the last few years. I do not have time to add all these pictures but if someone requests one I will gladly add it if I have one. Please put Find A Grave in subject line.
Most of the obituaries I have added are from local funeral homes or old newspapers with their permission. All pictures that I have added were taken by me personally.

Would you please correct a name for memorial #7140119?
It is listed as:
Annie "Ruza" Samenuk
Ruza should be Kuza. That is Annie's maiden name. I am her 2nd great-granddaughter.

The name Mike Chewakin was born with was actually Matvei Lohven Tzuvakin. He also went by Mathew Tzuvakin on the 1930 census.
Are you sure that these two are not the same person.

I found M Slapnicka in Mohall Cemetery spelled

In checking the photos in the Mohall Cemetery I found these Three Sobergs spelled Solberg and all info the same on both entries. I suggest you delete these three. #11160473 #11160474 and #92914537,
