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.

RE: D Holbrook
You are welcome Carol. I found a couple other Holbrooks and made two memorial pages which I just transferred to you (if that's OK). I am no relation.
Take care, Bob.

RE: Frank and Christine Purdy
Hi Carol
If you would like me to transfer the memorials for Frank and Christine to your care, just send me a note through the EDIT tab including your contributor number. I prefer to keep their son Frank because he was married to my husband's first cousin Joyce Holter.

RE: Husband of Genevieve Blessington
She was buried next to David, Had the names Kellum and Blessington. I just assumed it was David, but it could be another Blessington.

RE: Arthur C Pangburn
I sent a message to the other owner, added my photo and suggested his wife's # for linking and deleted my memorial. Thanks for catching this.

Photo Request for Oakland
I would be glad to fulfill your photo request for Oakland Cemetery, however it would be helpful if you could contact them and get the plot location for Melanie Michels and let me know the location. Because there are so many requests for this cemetery, I cannot obtain all of the locations. They are very helpful, and if you cannot call long distance, you can email Bob for the info.

RE: Johann
As of right now I do not have any images of Eva or her family that I am aware of. I do however have many pictures to go through of my wifes family. She is a Great-Granddaughter of Johann"John" Reis. I am assuming your husband is a grand son of one of Eva's sons, is that correct?
