He started work in genealogy in 1986 when he made a list of cousins and later wrote it up in Microsoft Word on his Macintosh computer. He found living relatives in Sweden and in Norway. He is still searching for living relatives in Alsace, Germany, and Ireland.

His Alsace origins are in Strasbourg. His Norway origins are in Farsund. His German origins are in Berlin.

Edward Oldrin Sr. Woodland
I posted the Oldrin family monument photo. Feel free to reuse it if you want.

I also took a photo of the actual inscription for Edward Oldrin Sr. but it is very weathered.
If you want I can send you that even though only a few words are legible.

Edward Oldrin Sr. Woodland
I have 1 photo of Edward Oldrin Sr.'s gravestone inscription, which is quite weathered.
However, I could not post it because the website said there are too many other items posted. Could you remove the cemetery photo, and perhaps also the list of Methodist ministers so I can post the inscription?

Va Nest Family in Neshanic Cemetery
Dear Richard,
I see that you have been quite active in researching/posting information on the Neshanic (Reformed Church) Cemetery. Do you know if any of the original burial records still exist? And if so, where?
I am researching my family members buried there. Most of these relatives have the surname Van Nest/Van Neste and they seem to have been buried close together, possibly all in the same original lot.
'Would greatly appreciate hearing form you. Thanks & best regards, Randy R.

Milner Tree
Good Day Richard
You sent my cousin Chris Chiaponni a link on the Milner family tree on Family Search. Can you tell me how and when John Miler 1700-1763 from Helperthorpe Yorkshire England arrived Nova Scotia and continued the line with Johnathan Milner 1743?
Also I we were told that our Milner's had 2 "L"s but I see that is not the case.

Thank you for your time

Alvilde M. Tanberg
Richard I was wondering if you have any relationship to Alvilde M. Tanberg? You posted her picture on this webpage. She is my Great Grandmother. She gave birth to Ethel Tanberg who married Clifford Milner who are my grand parents. They in turn gave birth to Robert O. Milner who was my father.
Thank you for your time
