Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am still learning, so please be gentle.

The four main branches of my family tree are Zastera, Holbrook, Launt, and Christensen. The bulk of my relations live or lived in Minnesota or North Dakota.

I am also researching my husband's family, whose main branches are Michels, Paplow, Bennett, and Hannawell. Most are or were from Wisconsin or Minnesota.

I'm on a mission to make sure that, as much as possible, everyone is networked with their parents and spouses on their Find A Grave memorials. I want to make families whole again.

I'm also researching the final resting places of relatives who aren't currently on FaG, so their lives can be honored.

Greetings Carol,

Just wanted to thank you for the info on Clair, and to let you know that I added photos and did some other linking if you wanted to take a look.
If these are anywhere in your tree and would like a transfer just let me know. I am not related, I photographed the cemetery.

Thanks again,

Thank you Carol, for leaving a token on my sister's Memorial. It was very thoughtful of you.

I regret it wasn't a better quality picture. That type of old marker is so hard to get a good crisp picture. They are so weather worn. At least you get the general idea of the type of marker.

You're welcome. I'm happy that you like the photo. It rained yesterday, so the gravestone was a bit wet. The cemetery was still very peaceful and pretty. With warm regards, Rhonda

Hi Carol,

I will be going to Resurrection cemetery to visit family graves later this week. I'd be glad to look for your request while I'm there. Would you mind calling the cemetery to ask them for the burial location? If you let me know the location that will help a lot since I only have a short time to visit the cemetery. The phone number to call is, (608) 238-5561
