Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm very much hooked on genealogy. Now that I'm retired I am willing to help others and fill photo requests for my area. This site has been a great help to me in finding information and photos and it's time for me to help others.

I'm currently photographing cemeteries in Hubbard and Eastern Becker county, Minnesota.
During the winter months I have been looking up obituaries to add to memorial pages. If you are looking for an obituary you can email me but please make the request during the winter months.



I will add to, change, delete, and Correct any Memorial I've added.
I will be happy to Transfer Memorials according to FAG Guidelines but I will consider other transfers on an individual basis. Please State your relationship when asking for a transfer. I will not transfer Bulk name requests.

Please use the EDIT tab and SAC to ask for a transfer or to have me correct or add information and state your relationship to the person when asking for a transfer.

No need to ask permission if you want to use my photos for ancestry and personal use, but I do appreciate credit given to me for taking them.

Please do not take my photos and upload them to another page on Find a Grave. If you need a photo added to a different page just ask and I will add it.

If you want the Photo's for resale, for profit, permission is denied.


I am Researching these surnames: Reeser/Rieser, Dunham,Curphey,Newell,Lantz,Adams,Sullivan,Lamb,Bentley,Chapin, Wangen,Meisenhelder and Ziegler.

Please don't use chalk, flour, chemicals etc. on markers when taking your grave photos. Overtime these things can all cause damage to a marker.

In the event of my death or my becoming inactive for a long period of time I would like all my memorial pages passed on to my son DR Wangen #47374156.

Elsie A Merritt
I was at Lakeview Cemetery in Blackduck today taking photos and, when adding the photos on findagrave, I discovered Elsie A Merritt (#124323742) is a duplicate. Looks like someone else created one before yours. Yours looks great too but one has to go. Do you mind removing this one. Thanks!

Hi, Joan. Do you know if his wife, Nellie (or Helen) is buried with him or not? She remarried Henry Jackson in 1910, and she died in 1916. Have you seen either Henry's or her stone/name? Thanks! Shirley

Roy and Ida Sexton
Hi Joan,
I made a mistake in a submission I made to you for the Saint Matthews Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery in Butterfield. Roy and Ida Sexton were married 14 February 1910 in Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa, I gave you a date of 1909. I just found the official record here (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XJ63-V94). Their son, Eldon Henry Sexton, married my 1st cousin Eileen Nelson, thats how Roy and Ida (Youngkin) Sexton made it in my family tree.
Thanks,

Mike

Genevieve Adams memorials
When checking Fairview Cemetery in Kelliher, I saw that three entries have been made for Genevieve Adams - two by you and one by another person. Since yours are not as complete with information, I am hoping you won't mind deleting both of your entries. Sorry - I hope you don't mind. Thanks for making the effort just the same.

RE: Lucinda McKibben # 65077473
Thanks so much for posting that photo. I had never seen her gravestone. Interestingly, it looks fairly recent. Perhaps one of her descendants put it there. I appreciate your efforts!

RE: Question
I have GPS on my iPhone but there was no service there. Perhaps my TomTom will work and it also gives GPS coordinates. I will try that. Thanks! Thanks also for the info on how to merge cemeteries. I will give it a try.

Merging cemeteries
I looked into merging on findagrave but could not find any clear way of requesting it. I am waiting to hear from just one more person - Oscar Sandstrom - about moving memorials to the correct cemetery. He has three that need to be removed or deleted. What do I need to do the have the cemeteries merged?
