Bio Photo Hi, I started doing my genealogy for the Solem family and love it. I have found ancestors in Norway back to 1506 and living relatives in Norway. This is a great way to find where you came from and also find descendants. I live on the original Solem farm which we are getting our 125th certificate. Need help email me.

Joseph Howard O'Connor, # 139609412


In response to your photo request, hubby and I went to St. Agnes Calvary cemetery in Vermillion, SD to look for Joseph O'Connor.

The cemetery has a sign with list of people buried there, along with plot numbers keyed to the map, which is also posted. We found two graves for men named Joseph O'Connor but neither headstone showed the dates you have in your Joseph's memorial.

There are a couple of possibilities:

1. St Agnes may not have updated the list. If you know the lot number, we could find it from the map and take the picture.

2. The list at the cemetery may have him listed as Howard O'Connor. The photo request list doesn't show middle names, so I didn't know to look for "Howard." If you think this might be the case, I can try again.

RE: Gerald Dubois
No that is just the picture of thw Facebook VA headstone. I suspect that the family didn't have it placed at the grave site because of cost and that he has a headstone. As a veteran I see no harm in being at least on his virtual memorial site. I am waiting on a return call from the VA to see what they will due to place it

RE: Ragnild Hovland Offerdahl

That is the Norway archives records. You can leave it the way it is...just thought I'd let you know.

I'll check the Norway records for the date you have and see if maybe the 1st Ragnilde died and they named the next one the same.

Joseph M Buum
Hi Kathy,
You had requested a photo for Joseph Marx Buum
in the Alcester Cemetery. There is a memorial with a stone photo for him already. The number is 128617257
He is buried at the Lake Preston Cemetery.
Perhaps you could contact the creator of this memorial and you could share the information.
