Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a ten-year genealogy researcher who was left a legacy by my aunt and father -- who did genealogy when the work was hard and painstaking. It is my joy and responsibility to preserve their work and expand upon is such a wonderful opportunity to create an online memorial for those I love dearly... and in the strangest way "bring to life" those I never had the opportunity to meet.I have attempted to include accurate information on the memorials I have created; however, if you are aware of errors, please let me know. Many of my memorials are family; however, if your relationship is closer -- or you have information you would like to include (especially pictures!), please contact me. I will gladly transfer memorials to people with a closer relationship than I have.Please feel free to use any of my photos in your personal family tree or on your online family tree.

I am NOT requesting transfer. I simply want to sponsor.

Hi Ellen

Yes, I noticed your new memorial but did you know you can just edit the cemetery on your original memorial? That way it stays with its original creation date and photos.

It's really easy, just click on Edit above the cemetery name on the memorial and follow the prompts. First Line Cemetery is the only choice that comes up.

However you decide to proceed, thank you so much for making the correction! :)

Delma V Matsen, 174636400
Hello Ellen,
You sent me some EDITS for Delma V. Matsen. Are you related to her and if so how?

I haven't been able to find any documentation as to her middle name being Vern. I couldn't find it in online marriage or birth record, census, the Oregon Death Index or the Social Security Applications and Claims Index. I found the middle name listed in some Ancestry member family trees, but none provided sources or documentation. Without proof I'm hesitant add it as true.

Could you please provide the source or sources where you found her middle name?

Edna Brown
I looked up Edna's funeral record, and you are absolutely right about it being July 20th. I sincerely appreciate you calling it to my attention. That's what my records show, so don't know how that happened, but it probably won't be the last time. BTW: this lovely woman was my husband's grandmother. I hope someone does something nice for you in return.
Best regards,
