|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The DANISH LUTHERAN CEMETERY, also know as the DANEWOOD is located several miles east of Braham, (Isanti County, MN) on 530th Street W (CR 2) at the junction of Basswood Road W. This is close to the northwest corner of Chisago County, MN.
I photographed the entire cemetery in the summer of 2008. I found the grounds in good order and it showed periodic maintenance was being performed. I transcribed all of my photographs and audited them against previous historical society transcription lists. Each record was then matched with the records that could be found in the MN Birth and Death Index databases that are hosted by the Minnesota Historical Society.
A final step that will be performed is to review the original cemetery burial records. This audit will reveal any unmarked interments that have not been previously discovered by visual inspection of the cemetery markers. This task is scheduled for this year (2013).
