Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my own family's genealogy for 12 years. I'm also a birder, and enjoy taking photos while birding cemeteries.

I have photographed and entered memorials for several cemeteries. Contact me through the edit tab on the memorial and I'd be happy to add additional information to a memorial or transfer ownership of a memorial to you if you're related.

Any pictures I've posted can be used without my permission for genealogy related use, such as posting to your tree.

For those with family in the cemeteries in Fargo, North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota. Just because they lived in Minnesota and the Social Security Death Index says their last residence was Minnesota, that doesn't mean they DIED in Minnesota. The only hospital in Moorhead, MN closed in the early 1970's, and many people who were ill and went to the hospital and died, did so in Fargo, North Dakota. Also, many Fargo/Moorhead residents over the years have gotten their health care at Mayo or in Minneapolis, and ended up dying in Hennepin County or Ramsey County, MN. And then there's those "snow birds" who spend winters in Arizona or Florida and die there. If you don't know for sure where they died, don't guess, leave it blank.

FAG transfer
Hi Connie, I tried to email you but the postmaster sent it back to me. I wondered if you would transfer a cousin over to me. #138616133 Roger Johnny Restad-- my Find A Grave #47410474. His memorial is a little sad, I can connect him with his family. It is a wonderful thing you are doing making so many memorials to connect families! Thank you!! Jul

Orval M. Hurner
I have made the changes that you requested. I'm not sure how I became manager of Orval's memorial.

RE: Hawley cemeteries
I am sorry that I have been unclear. There is only 1 cemetery called "Hawley Cemetery" in Hawley, MN. The "Hegland Cemetery" is a couple of miles south of Hawley and I would have identified it as such.
