I discovered Find A Grave while searching for the grave of my grandfather's brother. This simple little search sent me on a mission to search for my ancestors and get some of my family history on Find A Grave. Once I got hooked on genealogy, I decided I could help others by adding names to the site so that sent me onto my new "hobby" - photographing graves, and now I am totally addicted. I hope my work on Find A Grave will help others in their search or allow them to "visit" a loved one's grave. |
I'm not one of those people who think they give a prize for managing the most memorials. If you have any connection to someone that I have created a memorial for, I will gladly transfer it, as long as they are not in my tree.
The Bismarck Tribune did a very nice article on my cemetery project a while back. Click Here to view the article.
I have set up a Tribalpages family tree. Click on the link below to view it.
If I have taken a photograph of your ancestor's tombstone and it is of poor quality (shadows/overgrown with grass/hard to read/etc), please let me know and I will see what I can do about taking a better one. It is hard to take good photographs of all the markers when I am at a cemetery as the angle of the sun is often poor the stones don't photograph well.
If I have helped you in your search, please return the favor and "pay it forward" and do your part to help out someone else.

Thank you for the grave photo!

I'm working on my family tree and discovered the newspaper article you added to her page. Thank you so much. When I'm adding info. to my work, I don't always catch the little things. I never noticed her mom died the same year she was born or how young she was when she died. You added another piece to the puzzle!
Thanks for transferring these to me.
I will do some more research on these folks.
Also - I had their last name as Lung not Lund from census and other records. Did the book actually have Lund?

Thank you for adding the information on my dad's oldest brother's passing there in North Dakota. I had never seen that article before. I really appreciate your sharing it.
Thanks so much for the transfers.

Brian, thank you so much for posting the obituary you found to his memorial. I do appreciate it! My sister still lives in Minot, and we plan to visit these graves together the next time I'm in town.
Thanks for posting the obit. It is high quality and easy to read. Sarah is a distant cousin.

Hey are you related to the Willman-Feland families? Because Emil Margido Willman Sr. and Olivia Feland were both my great great grandparents. I've seen that you've added so many Willman and Feland descendants in Sims Cemetery in North Dakota too.
