Bio and Links
Bio Photo Shortly after the Moravian Church in the small town of Aurelia, ND. closed in the early 70's, an association was formed to look after the cemetery.
It was renamed the Aurelia Community Cemetery. I was elected to the board a few years later when one of the original members died. About ten years ago I helped my sister work on our family tree and now when I found Find A Grave, I realized how helpful it could have been.
This information was mostly taken from the tombstones at cemeteries I have visited, with some added from our family tree and ND death index files. I also get information from the Mouse River Loop Genealogy Society, of which I am a member.Most of these cemeteries are located in northwestern North Dakota.
With over 75,000 names in about 675 cemeteries, I'm sure I have made some mistakes. If anyone finds any errors or has more information let me know.I have photos (about 60,000) of the markers of most of the graves added in the last few years. I do not have time to add all these pictures but if someone requests one I will gladly add it if I have one. Please put Find A Grave in subject line.
Most of the obituaries I have added are from local funeral homes or old newspapers with their permission. All pictures that I have added were taken by me personally.

Would you changing Inez (#3840722) Fred's father to #52725705. August was a great uncle of mine. I submitted his memorial in 2010 and someone accidentally put in a repeat in 2012. I have asked him to delete his submission which is the number you have entered as Inez's father. If you are not related, you could transfer the memorial to me and I will do it. Whatever is easiest for you.
Thanks so much.

Do you possibly have a picture of the headstone for Donald Ditsworth in Yellowstone Point Cemetery by Cartwright, ND? Is there any way to learn who his family was or who buried him? Thank you so much for your help! Tracy Ditsworth Kuznia

Hello Herb, just wanted to stop by and thank you for the work you've done. I was quite pleased when I saw that my grandmother and grandfather (Ellen #101003675 and Harry #101003685 Johnson) were on here. I hope to add pictures soon.
Also I was able to find my great grandparents Anna and John Johnson - Harry's parents, so I have linked all of those together.
Thank you again!

Thank you so much for transferring Grace Kellogg Gullikson and her family. She was a very important part of my fathers early life and very close to both of my grandparents. So great to be able to tie the family together. Thanks again.

Thanks so much for the management over the years and transfer of Hans. It is so nice to connect in someway with my ancestors.
