Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 2/15/56 in Aberdeen, SD. Moved to my ancestral homeland (Minnesota) in 1991. US ARMY and US ARMY Reserve 1974-1982. University Prof. (Social Studies) at MSU in Mankato, MN. Historical Genealogy is a natural, personal offshoot of my professional interests. Married, three daughters, all grown, four grandchildren. Irish & Norwegian on my mother's side. Prussian/German on my father's side. Find-a-Grave has been a real valuable tool in my genealogical search. I am happy to give back. Let me know if I can find a grave or photograph a grave for you. Most of my own ancestors lived in central Minnesota, so even though I'm in SOUTHERN MN, it's not really out of the way for me to find graves for you in the area north and west of Minneapolis.

Beatrice & Orlof Cole
I just added Orlof Cole and you had added a photo of his and his wife's gravestone on her memorial page and I was hoping I could get you to add the same photo to Orlof's memorial. His memorial # is: 138492339. I have connected him to his wife. They were buried in Woodland Hills Memorial Park in Mankato. I could have just downloaded and re-uploaded the photo, but it is your photo and I want you to keep the credit. I do not like stepping on anybody's heels. Thanks for all the work you do. Scott J. Stiever
