Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Ridgeway, Wisconsin, with my husband and three gorgeous daughters. My hobbies / passions are photography, scrapbooking and genealogy. When the weather allows, I like to tromp around cemeteries and find relatives and other people I know.

I am most interested in my Norwegian ancestors and mine and my husbands German ancestors; with names like, Venden, Moen, Swiggum, Zwiefelhofer, Waterbury, Stroede, Mueller & Brunk. Also, I've been researching my step-grandpa Gammeter's family (Swiss), and my daughter's father's heritage. Unfornately, I've lost some friends and classmates, too, so I've been looking for their grave sites.

If you find one of my postings and find mistakes or have information you can add, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm always hungry for more information.

Joseph Frank Traxler died 1958
Eau Claire Daily Telegram Aug 15 1958 p 2: ...died at Sacred Heart hospital in Eau Claire WI. Life time resident of Eau Claire, WI. veteran of WW 1, worked at Presto Industries 12 years retiring in 1954. Survived by his wife and a sister.

According to this obit, this man died in Eau Claire and not the Veteran's hospital?

West Wiota Cemetery
Hi Kari, my husband noticed you had a picture of the Church on the West Wiota Cemetery... but it is actually the Church of the East Wiota Cemetery. Not sure if you knew that or not.

Ricky A Sandlin 10468406
I am so confused! There is another Find-A-Grave Memorial 66410347 for him showing him buried in a different cemetery in a different state. At the other memorial he is linked with his parents and there is a plot number listed. I'm not sure how to resolve this issue, but wanted to bring it to your attention. If you'd like to link Ricky with his parents, Earl 67254116 and Barbara 66410346.
Thank you,
Judy Clonts

Memorial# 11068544
Just a heads up that I sent an edit suggestion on June 7th regarding Memorial# 11068544. If that was not received, please take a look at her memorial page for new image added. Also submitted 2 of those new "automated edits" for her, one to update her date of death, and one to link to her parents. When you are signed in on Find A Grave, you will see the new Edits Tab on your Contributor page. If the message did not get through to you, let me know. Thanks!

Re: Photo requests at Yellowstone
RE: Re:Need Photo Volunteer
Hi Janet,
Who do you need from Yellowstone Lutheran Cemetery? My kids are back in school, do I have time to look gor you.

I have posted more photo requests on Yellowstone
I would imagine that they are still there, there
were like 7 of them the past week. I need to
make more requests, let me know if you run
across them or not.
Thanks in advance,

Photo Request for Edmunds
I have claimed your photo request for Oscar Edmunds. Do you have any information about where in the Murray Cemetery he is buried and whether or not there is a marker? Also, are you sure he is buried in this cemetery?
