Arthur Duffin
I had 2 questions about an edit you sent me for Arthur Duffin (#147774128). You have his birth date as Jan 19, 1894 but both his death certificate and Ohio birth index show Feb 9. You also had his death location as Battle Creek (Calhoun County) but his death certificate lists it as Schoolcraft in Kalamazoo County. Can you tell me where your information came from please?

Thank you!
for the info on Bertha and Albert. When you sent the correction for Albert you wrote Alfred, I assume you meant Albert. I changed it on his memorial. They did round the birth, death yrs. up or down I have too found may dates this way. Good to hear from you again. Linda

RE: Alferd/Alfred Pederson 127745047
I do exactly the same thing, but that doesn't mean that everyone does. I just worry about getting things correct!

RE: Alferd/Alfred Pederson 127745047
Hi Elaine,

Now I'm not sure if I should change it. I think most people would assume that it should be Alfred, and not Alferd, because Alferd is a weird spelling. Doesn't mean that it isn't correct though, regardless of what Ancestry and the death records show. I've seen more errors in those two sources that most anywhere else. My concern, of course, is that if it should be Alfred, no one is going to search for Alferd, and should it be Alferd, they won't search for Alfred! Now my head hurts!

For now, I'll accept the edit, and put a note on it saying that all other records show the spelling as Alfred, and I'll see if I can find something else.

Thanks for the help!

Alferd/Alfred Pederson 127745047
Hi Elaine,

You sent an edit for Alferd Pederson's first name to be changed to Alfred. It's spelled Alferd on his headstone, so I just wanted to double check with you to sure that this is an error on his stone, before I change it. He's listed with the spelling of Alfred in the cemetery records and on his death record, and I've seen errors on stones before, but I usually go with what is on the stone.

All of the other edits have been accepted, and I appreciate you sending them.

Thanks, Natalie

Hi, I was wondering if you could help me, I have Marit in my research, but I have her born April 12, 1847 Aurdal, Opland, Norway. Is the birth month and day on the stone? I have her as Marit Olsen Erickson. Her parents as Ole Erikson Kaarhuset and Berit Nilsdr Haugestuen. Thank you any help with this would be appreciated. Deb

RE: Lynn Sorben
Do you happen to know what family the Sorben family may have been connected with in Towner County? (Bisbee, ND area) I could then check a book on Towner County Families by Mrs. Hadler.

RE: Lynn Sorben
Only what is on the tombstone:
"son of Mr. & Mrs. S.A. Sorben" with his age
The writing is hard to read.

This was the only tombstone in Sorben lot.

I'm sorry but I don't recognize any of these names. It is so kind and generous of you to help your friend to find her ancestors.
Keep up the good work.

born 1846 - died 1923, Bear Creek Lutheran Church Cemetery Mower, Minnesota. Hi, On the Bear Creek burial plots by name list it has a Nels Midlang plot 145 grave 2 & 7 born 1846 died August 12, 1923 buried August 15, 1923. Do you think that the last name Nelson is correct or should it be Midlang? Best to you Deb

Hi Elaine:
I have accepted the edits you left for the Holleman's. I was wondering if you are related to this family. Polly (Canter) Holleman, mother of William Wade Holleman, is the sister of my grt-grt grandfather, Levi Canter. Any additional info you may have will be greatly appreciated.
