Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am retired from the United States Air Force after 30 years service, active and reserve. I like old prop driven airplanes especially the ones that still fly. The B-29 I am standing in front of is currently the only B-29 in flying condition. It was restored by the "Commemorative Air Force" in Midland Texas. This picture was taken in Duluth MN. I am looking forward to the completion of the restoration of "DOC" another B-29 at McConnell A.F.B in Wichita KA. They expect to test fly it this fall in 2014.
I am available to take photo requests with in 20 miles of my residence, however some may be difficult to get in the winter months because of snow depth and cold weather. There are about 10 cemeteries in this area I can get to pretty easy until the snow comes.I have done some geneology research on my imediate family and found walking around cemeteries kinda interesting. Many of the cemeteries in this area, which is very rural, do not have full time sextants and locating a grave may be very time consuming sometimes.
I have submited spread sheets for several cemeteries in this area to "Find a Grave" and the Itasca County Historical Society. Any one who wishes a memorial transferred, Other than my family, just ask.

I would like to know if you would have any information on who placed Mr. Tihverainen's headstone. I've come to a complete halt on finding this gentleman's complete date of death. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Additions & changes
Sure I will take them. Tamere Swiger Stitt is my maternal grand aunt. If closer family requests later, I will be able to verify their relationship and would be more than willing to transfer to them. Thank you for offering.

Thank you for looking for the marker for Nick. How said he has no marker, when military markers are free. Thanks again!
