Bio and Links
Bio Photo Aloha! I live in Hawaiʻi but my family and ancestors of one line are from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Central New York State & a bit into Ohio (Annable, Lo-Lathrop, Rawdon, Myers, Dunton, Rose), my fathers line is from Sweden (Hammarstrom). Husband's family from Sweden and the midwest... Chicago, Nebraska, Indiana (Hylander, Ekstrand, Nelson). Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Most of the pages that I have posted or manage are relatives of my husband or I, and I do this in memory of them. I'm grateful to the members who have transferred pages to me. I will be happy to add or correct information if it is necessary and if I have posted one of your family members I will be happy to transfer, whatever the relationship... they are your family, not mine! I have already found some family on this site and am very grateful for the time and efforts of other find a grave members.... with that in mind I will do what I can to 'pay it forward' and try to fulfill some requests here on O'ahu. As an Army wife it is especially important to me to be able to honor and photograph military graves. If I am able to fulfill your photo requests, please feel free to use them on your family trees... just please credit me as the photographer. I always give credit to the people who share photos and information with me... and I am very grateful to them all. Mahalo...

Lynda thanks so much for the wonderful photo of Leo gravestone. I am trying to connect all the family member together. They came from the Azores and settled on the big island before leaving for other places. Keep up the great work this isn't the first time you have helped me out.

RE: Kirsling Sisters

Thank you so much
I would like to take a moment to say Thank-you so very much for the photo of the grave site for SGT Stanley Keaweehu. Stanley and I were stationed together from 1983 - 1986 with the 100th Battalion 442nd Infantry. After I left Hawaii in 86, I lost contact with many members of the 442nd. Searching for SGT Keaweehu, I heard he passed away in 1995. I have been back to Hawaii several times but was unable to locate his burial site. This photo brings back many of the great memories I had working with Stanley. Again, Thank you so very much.

RE: Cornelis Evers & wife
Hello Lynda,

Yes, you may absolutely use the photo for your private family tree. I am always more than willing to share photos for private family trees. I have had some issues with people that use photos on public internet sites and not giving proper credit, but I really appreciate you asking permission and offering to give me credit for the photo.

If you find any other family members that I have attributed photos or information to, please feel free to use them for your private family tree as well.

Thanks again and nice to meet you.
