Bio and Links
Recently I have started tracing my family tree, and in searching for the burial locations for my ancestors my family and I have found a fun and enjoyable hobby. My nine year old daughter views it as a treasure hunt. She even wants her own camera so she can take pictures by herself instead of using/sharing mine. Now as we go through towns she asks if there are any cemeteries that we need to stop at.

My favorite "treasure" that we have found was by accident. While searching through a rather large cemetery for a distant relative we found my grandfather. He had been killed in a car accident two weeks before my mother was born. I never knew when, how or where he died until I started tracing my family, and no-one was left who could remember where he was buried. At first when I saw the headstone I thought it was my uncle, as he was a junior, but I just kept looking at the date and knew that it wasn't right. Finally it dawned on me who he was.

I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as we are. Good luck in your treasure hunting.

What a neat story about your father! I take great pride in linking my family members together and eventually want to post individual bios on each site. I would greatly appreciate it if you would transfer me Jennie Harper's site to me. And Bob you have transferred several to me. If you come across any Harpers, Sisco's, Moen's I would greatly appreciate it if you would remember me. My family is all over but I am really hoping to find some that I believe have to be some where in Jackson or Trempealeau Co. My Find A Grave account is: 48971020

Thank you!

I hope you continue your journey!
