Bio and Links
Bio Photo The very first thing I want to say is THANK YOU to all of you who send me edits for the memorials I manage. I check Find A Grave almost every day and absolutely love it when edits come my way. I use the edit feature often, and it always lifts my spirits when I see them go through. It reinforces that this site is a community effort and we are all working together to make it as complete and accurate as possible.

I have been interested in genealogy for 30 years and have written over a dozen family history books, the first one in 1979. The majority of our family vacations in the 1980s & 1990s revolved around cemeteries and visiting relatives. (Our kids ask why there are so many photos of them posing on headstones!)

When I joined FindAGrave, I kept busy adding our own family members. I knew where most were buried but some had to be searched for. In 2013, my husband and I took a trip through Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota and, in the process, found lots of folks to whom we were not related. I've created memorials for them adding as much additional information as I could find. We were able to fill dozens of photo requests; it felt good being able to pay forward all of the requests that volunteers have filled for us.

I endeavor to make memorials as complete as possible, including headstone photos, bios and links. (I have received permission for obits unless the newspapers are out of print or the copyrights have expired.)

Most of my memorials are family members, but I'll happily consider transfers if you are more closely related.

You are welcome to use any of the photos I have posted but I would enjoy hearing from you if you do use any.

FindAGrave has added so much to my life. I love being a part of it!

Thank you for the information for this family member, my gg grandfather through his son Carl Bradford and grandson Mauritz Bradford.
My grandma Jeanne told me the other day that Carl changed his name because of too many Johnsons at the post office! I am not sure if you are related, it looks like you have a lot of connections for that area, and if you are, wonder if you heard about the name change.
I also tried to download the family photo but it didn't work. I just wanted to let you know I want to share it with family.
I looked up the PDF Kulm, North Dakota 1892 to 1957 file but it didn't seem to show the photos. It could be because of being on the phone as well. If you have any ideas on how I could see the photos I would appreciate it. I thought there was a couple other ones of family members in there maybe.

Thanks again,

Aurora Community cemetery is VERY large so it would help if you can obtain the location of this grave. Otherwise it takes walking over terrain that is uneven and hilly in the older section.
I have tried in the past to communicate with someone who is on this cemetery board but have never gotten any response.
Of course until mid week there is frozen snow on the ground which covers the flat markers and is not easily scraped off.
I will be glad to fulfill your request with some help on the location.
