I am 59 years and have just began working on Geneology a couple of years for my families. While searching, I discovered my biological Great Grandparents, who I have never known and their pictures through Find A Grave and couldn't believe my eyes. There was soooo much information, names, dates, parents, pictures, etc. and knew that I wanted to be a part. I have had several mini strokes twice which prevents me from working, but this I can do when I can and if I can make just one person as happy as I was and am, it will be very fulfilling to me. Thank you to all of the other volunteers who inspired me. Thank you Find A Grave. Most of all, Thank you to my Wonderful husband Mike who supports my efforts by taking me to the cemeteries and helping trim and sweep the headstones for a nicer picture. He is Wonderful. Thank you so much Honey.
Dr Eliot & Marjorie Snow Would like permission to use these tombstones photos in my ancestry.com family, and their could be others as well. If allowed, how would you like photo credit given? I usually credit the following way: photo credit belongs to and used with permission of Find A Grave member, then the name. Thank you!
Winger/Salvesen I went out to Hyrum cemetery to take pictures for the two you requested that weren't claimed, I took pictures for the ones that were already claimed, just in case the claim expired with who claimed them already.. I can upload them or email them to you if you would like, and to answer this question for you Christoffer Syversen Winger or Winge, his last name is Winger.. He's in the Hyrum Cemetery Index with the last name Winger.. And the Winger's headstones are all sunk, so you may want to call them and have them raise them.. there's only one headstone of a Winger above ground in the little family plot and her name is May Winger Hardy.
RE: Orson Salveson They both are listed but there was only one Orson headstone that we saw. I will email the photo to you right now, next time we go we can look again and the cemetery may know, if you get anymore info that would be helpful I am willing to go back and look again, they're kinda in a open spot with gaps between headstones so it may be possibly a few sunk..
Orson Salveson Hello, I went to Hyrum Cemetery earlier and took a picture of his headstone, I didn't upload it yet because some information doesn't add up quite right.. His plot matched which is D 32.5, 5 and the dates also match up.. There is two Orson Salveson's buried there and this one you requested has the middle name Gustav other than that everything matches up.
RE: Thorvald August Salvesen # 111293023 I have added Hannah's headstone. The Salvesen's are my husband's relatives. I believe Thorvald was an uncle to my husband's great grandfather Norman Hans Salvesen, also buried in the Hyrum Cemetery. Norman also had a brother named Thorvald August, but he younger and is different from this Thorvald. I have just added a memorial and headstone pic for the younger Thorvald. Keep up the great work and like you, I love find-a-grave and all of the wonderful information and pictures that can be found there.
