Bio and Links
Bio Photo My dad's family settled mainly in Dunn County, with some in Barron County (Dovre Township). My mom's family all settled in Barron County. These two counties hold special meaning to me, and I am located within short driving distance for research.

My mom and I do most of our research together. One of us carries a notebook, the other a camera! Many of the profiles that we have created are family; however, we tend to add as many additional profiles as we are able to when visiting cemeteries or reviewing obituaries.

Find A Grave is a very special site. It is tied directly to Ancestry.com, and those doing research can gets "hints" from Find A Grave. Adding profiles gives online researchers yet another resource to locate information on an ancestor.

Should you come across a profile that is a direct relation, please let me know. I am happy to transfer the profile, so long as the individual is not one of our relatives. We try to obtain photos of each stone located in a cemetery when we visit one. Sometimes it takes awhile!:)

My ultimate goal for Find A Grave is to provide a continued story for those who we have lost. I try to respond to messages and emails quickly, but please feel free to message me again if I haven't taken care of a profile update. I would like for the information that I add to be as complete as possible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a message for me.

Petra Jorstad
Hi Sandi,

I tried to link Petra Jorstad #113433335 to her parents and something went wrong. I can't go back in because of a pending change. Please disregard whatever came through and I will try again later.

Thanks for your help!

Answered some and created other questions.
Thank you for your posts. I am the grandson of Orien Harlson. From your research and that of others I have found out a lot about my family tree. It has far fewer branches than I was led to believe!

I saw your note on Emma Bakken's memorial about the birth year being off by a decade for her first husband, Enus Severson. 67550054

Did some digging on Ancestry and found documents showing that you are correct. He was born in 1887 and not 1897 as shown on the marker. I updated the memorial with the information. Thanks for adding the note to Emma's memorial or I wouldn't have caught it.

I just now found out that the memorial is now merged together, the one memorial was 111270910, an has now been merged with 56828481. The bio or obit that I submitted to Rosemarie, she is now getting credit for. Frank and Mary are my great great grandparents. I am very frustrated, as a cousin and I are the ones who have done the research on Frank and Mary. Rosesmarie married into the family.
