|Bio and Links|
I have been involved in researching my family history for the past 25 years. When I found Find A Grave I considered it a wonderful new tool and now I'd like to contribute to this virtual cemetery with bio's and photos of my own beloved family members.|
Many of the memorials I manage connect to me in some way. That means I really want to talk to you if you connect too! Feel free to contact me through EDIT - Suggest... - or directly by e-mail.
My trees include a big connection to Norway and the names: Norby/e, Johnson (on both sides - oh joy!), Lien, Wigen, Nummedal, Behrents and Daehlin.
My husband's trees (Richard Ferris) connect to Scotland/Ireland, early America, Sweden & Norway. Names include: Ferris, Pillsbury, Donaldson and Thorson.
I'm currently working on a website with our family trees. It is free and easy to register. (All you need is a name and your choice of username and password.) If you have a name in one of my virtual cemeteries, there may be much more in my site. Please come visit!
Pet Peeve Section:
1. My husband and I travel to cemeteries, sometimes long distances, only to take photos of relatives' graves, and then we snap a few more that are nearby. I use Photoshop to enhance every photo. However, I have just a small camera and am not a professional photographer. If you take a photo that is distinctly better, I'm willing to remove mine, but have the common courtesy to let me know. Don't use up a second of the precious 5 photo limit to post basically the same photo.
2. I am so sad that managers of memorials interpret "guidelines" as "rules". Memorials should rest with family, regardless of the relationship. If there is a controversy, then use the guidelines to interpret whether someone is more closely related than someone else. Do you really want to become a Fallen Graver and leave 50,000 memorials to someone else, equally unrelated? If you send me an edit and are related in any way, please let me know. I am eager to transfer memorials!

Louise Olson was my Great-Great Grandmother and her only daughter Amanda was my Great-Grandmother. So I guess that means we are distant cousins? Are you a member of ancestry.com? It is an excellent and comprehensive source of family tree information.
|Debbie McGinley||RE: Lloyd & Carol Morgan 95597069|
Very, very distantly related to my husband's aunt. Just want to add researched information, thank you for your work on this site.
|Linda||RE: Alfred Haley 104676858|
You're welcome - I'm glad the info was helpful too 😊
Always nice to be able to transfer a memorial record to someone who can add more info - especially family.
All the best with your research & for doing all that you are doing!

Thanks for letting me know - I have been having that problem lately as well.
|Dianne Holtquist||Clinton Pearson|
I transferred the memorial to you. I had another family who said the deceased was buried in Ortley. The information I entered in the Hope Cemetery was based on a SDGenWeb site, and have discovered significant inaccuracies.
For that reason, the transfer. This will allow you to correct any descrepancies.
Sorry for any confusion on the Clinton Pearson memorial.
|Bryan Anderson||Peter A Uglem|
Thank you for the post of Peter A Uglem's gravestone. I appreciate your efforts.
|Rick Elwood||Helen Fredericksen - 125785412|
Connie, I liked your suggestion and simplified her last name, There was not an edit to add Helen's husband waiting to be approved but linked not only her first husband but her second one as well. Take a look and let me know if there should be any adds/changes.
