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 in mid 2015.
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.

Alma Marie Anderson Death Date
I am researching an Alma Anderson for my tree and I see that the Alma you have in Find A Grave # 60717190 has a death date of Aug. 12, 1946. I don't see a grave maker photo and was wondering how that date was decided. I see 2 Alma Andersons who died in Itasca County within about a year of each other.

CERTID# 1947-MN-006471
Date of Death: 11 NOV 1947
County of Death: ITASCA

CERTID# 1946-MN-006394
Date of Death: 12 AUG 1946
County of Death: ITASCA
