Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello - For the past 25+ years, I have been researching my German and Norwegian ancestry. My most intensive and extensive research (involving microfilmed German, Norwegian, and American church records, etc.) has included these and other family branches: Schliesser, Borsheim, Lien/Lee, Goho, Reinbold, and Spiegel.

It is my privilege to honor a number of my ancestors and their descendants by creating or managing their Find-A-Grave Memorials - in order to keep their memory alive and strive for them to be represented by accurate data.

I like to review as many records as possible for a given piece of data rather than rely on just one source. This reveals discrepancies and errors that would otherwise be hidden, which opens the door to figuring them out.) Sometimes, it also brings out surprising new information.

I hope to make each memorial that I manage something that would be pleasing to the person it represents.

RE: Grave of the 2nd Mrs.
I love Hoffman. My husband has a lot of family buried out there... I was out there one day looking for his family for his tree and I just started taking photos. My husband thought I was crazy... LOL My OCD kicked in cause I want to get the cemetery 100% but its hard to do, because some of the stones are in bad condition...

RE: Koder Memorials

Thanks for your comments.

As I have only recently joined Find A Grave. I have been trying to find out what Memorials are already set up. and trying to get many transferred to me. Others to get linked to parents etc. and then setting up those not setup for about 10 different family branches. So I don't have the time to do all the work on Bio's until I get done with that.

Then I will go back and take my time, reviewing and correcting everything I can. I want nothing more then to leave good quality Memorials for all my ancestors and related links that future generations might hopefully appreciate

Anna Mary Koder- Hohenshell - Stough

Thanks for including an explanation for Anna Mary Koder- Hohenshell - Stough 1772.

I found your explanation very convincing and should avoid future confusion for others.

Sorry , Martha
Martha , I used to transfer memorials all the time.

But, it only takes a few to spoil things. And I have been attacked enough , by 3 women.

So , I am sorry I stopped transferring memorials to anyone for any reason because of the bad behavior of some.

If you would like things added , please let me know . I am always happy to do that for people.
