Bio and Links
Bio Photo Aloha! I live in Hawai'i, but my family and ancestors of one line are from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Central New York State & a bit into Ohio (Annable, Lo-Lathrop, Rawdon, Myers, Dunton, Rose), my fathers line is from Sweden (Hammarstrom). Husband's family from Sweden and the midwest... Chicago, Nebraska, Indiana (Hylander, Ekstrand, Nelson). Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Most of the pages that I have posted or manage are relatives of my husband or I, and I do this in memory of them. I'm grateful to the members who have transferred pages to me. I will be happy to add or correct information if it is necessary and if I have posted one of your family members I will be happy to transfer, whatever the relationship... they are your family, not mine! I have already found some family on this site and am very grateful for the time and efforts of other find a grave members.... with that in mind I will do what I can to 'pay it forward' and try to fulfill some requests here on O'ahu. As an Army wife it is especially important to me to be able to honor and photograph military graves. If I am able to fulfill your photo requests, please feel free to use them on your family trees... just please credit me as the photographer. I always give credit to the people who share photos and information with me... and I am very grateful to them all. Mahalo...

RE: Loretta Yim
Thanks for the heads-up Loretta. I've deleted mine, though I know at the time I added it at the cemetery there was no memorial there. It appears the creator of the "earlier" memorial creates lots of "unknown burial" memorials from obituaries and then moves them when he finds the burial location - looking at his roster of memorials created reveals many "unknowns'. Bottom line - in this case, since his has a more complete biography - I let mine go, as the real goal is to honor the deceased as completely as possible.

Thanks again, Mark
