Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an Iowa native - born here and still living in the great state of Iowa. I have been doing genealogy research for over 20 years. I have a BA in Psychology/Humans Services and not only complete research to find the names, places, and stories of families but also the patterns of behaviors that evolve in a family line. These relationships within the family are part of what defines who we are. Through researching for myself and others, I have learned about how things like alcoholism, mental health (depression, PTSD, etc.) and socioeconomic situations can change a family for generations.

We are all trying to trace our own roots as well as help others find theirs as well. Please be RESPECTFUL!

Many people seem to want to "hoard" memorials and compete for the largest number of added/managed memorials on this web site. This is not me. I do research and share information for the knowledge and preservation of all our family histories.

Please remember to be kind and not rude when making requests for changes.

Thank you for all the information on the Ossian family. This is my husband's family line.
Would not have had access to this part of his family without help from researcher like you.
There will be a special place in heaven for you!
Also, I am an Iowa girl now too!
Thanks again!!!

Sparr family
There are several family members buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Red Oak, Iowa. I was wondering if you ever get a chance, would you mind taking a picture of their headstones? They do not have a memorial as yet. Please email me if you are able to find them (

K. E.(Klaus Edward) Sparr 1865-?
(his wife is Alma Sparr who does have a memorial)
Arvid Carl Sparr 1897-1989
Elizabeth R. Sparr 1899-1991
Theodore E. Scheerbarth 1866-1953
Eva "Kate" Scheerbarth 1869-1939

Thank you so much!
