Thank you
Thank you for supplying information on the Zarko family. A lot of the information you shared is helping me put together a family history. You provided names and dates I have been searching for.
Thanks Again!

RE: Delos Orlando Cole
Do you mean flowers? Here's my quick 'tutorial' that I have saved...

Virtual flowers: Click on Leave Flowers and Add Note box under the headstone picture. Find A Grave has a bunch of default flowers to pick from; however I don't like those! And I suppose many others don't either, because you'll most often see fancier ones. So, I'll tell you how to make up your own "scrapbook" of flowers for future use. When you leave flowers, you can let it default to your Find A Grave name or type in something else. You can add a note - or not.

Say you like flowers someone else left and want to be able to use it yourself in the future. Click right on the flower itself. Click on "Add this to my scapbook." It'll ask you to name the flower, but you don't have to.

I have found that if I'm looking for cool flowers, it's best to look up someone famous because they'll have A LOT to choose from! I wish someone had taught me this when I joined.

RE: Mathilde NELSON
Hi Mary.
I'm sorry to bothering you again but I'm so ancious to hear about Matilde and how she was and how many living family she have and of course when she she died.
I find one Matilde in Canning Cemetery, Hughes county.It said born 1885 and it's correct but died unknown. Is that her or what?
Anyway I added a photo of her and Hazel on the side.
Hope you don't mind I'm asking.
I have sent mail but have not heard anything. Hope it isn't in the spam.
Your sincerely,

Family in Norway
I guess you wonder why I'm mailing you.
My name is Unni and I'm from Norway. I have been searching for my mom's aunt for some years now. She left Norway in 1910 and travel over to the states to meet up with her husband. Her name was Matilde Nelson, married to Tom. They had 6 children, Olaf,Mevin,Hazel,Gladys,Olga and Donald.I have found out when they were born and died but cannot find anything about Matilde. I find the death about Gladys and saw your name so I wonder if you maybe is family and it would be nice if I've found Matilde's descendants.
If you're not the right person, I'm sorry for bothering you.
Your cincerly
