Bio and Links
Bio Photo I maintain memorials mostly for relatives, plus a few others.

After mentioning places in bios, I sometimes add decimal coordinates in parentheses, like this (61.74739 9.26042). These coordinates can be pasted into many geographic web sites to see the location (,, Google earth, but unfortunately the excellent Norwegian map site doesn't accept decimal coordinates). Different sites don't quite agree on locations, so I go by Acme mapper.

I have two virtual cemeteries of people from the Fron parishes (Nord-Fron and Sør-Fron), Oppland County, Norway, in the historical region of Gudbrandsdalen, who are buried in the US. One has information added from the Fron church records and the other has no info added. Fron church records go back to 1799. People in Norway transcribed the Fron church records from 1799 through 1900 into a series of Excel files. These files are my source of the information. If you know of a person from Fron, you may ask me for a look-up.

Another of my projects is doing look-ups in "Compendium of History and Biography of Central and Northern Minnesota" (Chicago, Geo. A. Ogle & Co., 1904).

Do you have more pictures of the Dybdalen Mosebakken family?

I will add my grave marker photo to your memorial after you have corrected the 'burial unknown' designation to Beyers Settlement Cemetery. Let me know when that is completed, and will do the addition of the photo and then delete mine.

It appears that Julien and his wife's graves have been found and photographed. Unless you're related, you might think of transferring this memorial over to mjsitory with the memorial #127285459 or possibly ask for a merge of the memorials.

Thanks, Jim Seidelman

RE: Inga and Joseph Holton
No, unfortunately I did not write down the location numbers. If you call the cemetery - 612-521-7619, they will be very happy to provide you with that information.

Ole Hanson - Weyburn
It is possible that the folks at the
Sun Country Health Region, 808 Souris Ave, Weyburn, SK phone 306-842-8399 might be able to help you. Someone somewhere in the Weyburn Medical system has records for all the people who passed through the hospital. Might take a while to locate the right person though

Good Luck

church info in Norway
Hello, Can you help me please get the contact info for the churches in Tretton, and Oyer Norway.

I have a lot of family members from this area that should be in these cemeteries or other one in that area.

I have a book from my grandmother she got from Norway with dates of family members going back to 1200's.

If you know of any other places in these towns I could get info back to doc. people, other children and where they me be buried would be a lot of help to me.

Thank You,
Michael Scott

RE: Cora Fosse
It came from Wright Funeral Home in Moorhead and it doesn't mention a newspaper.
