Bio and Links
I was born and raised in rural Nebraska, on a farm with a family cemetery, but didn't know much about family history, I think that started my interest in both genealogy and cemeteries. Began work on the family tree 30+ years ago, and it is still growing.

Findagrave is a great site, but there is still a lot of work to be done. I'm into photography, so try to put as many marker pictures on Finda as possible. I've added more than 2000 to a local cem.

I keep finding our relatives, many recently added to Findagrave, found one that was added 3 days before I did the search! I will gladly turn over memorials of your relatives, unless they are more closely related to us.

Unfortunately, some individuals seem to be very uncooperative, they will not turn over the maintenance of a memorial OR add information that is provided to them. It appears that they are in a race to start short memorials, with little information, and are looking only at the total number.

A big "Thank You" to all the cooperative people that I've found on this site!

Jim

Jim, If Martha Marie (Jensen) Petersen, Memorial #35980705, is not more closely related to you, would you mind transferring the memorial to me? Marie was my great aunt.

Kruntorad
Hi again, I found some info on James Kruntorad on the Family Search website and a note on James, posted by his nephew who still care for James' farm, that he never married, spent all his time farming. so it looks alike Mayme is just his sister..If you have an argument against that I'd be glad to hear about it....Good luck in your genealogy endeavors, Terry

James and Mamie Kruntorad
Hi Jim, I hope you're close to Pierce (you mentioned rural Nebraska) as I've been working on their family tree on Ancestry.com and I find they are brother and sister in at least 2 censuses and I'm now wondering if they were really married to each other as well. I haven't found any marriage info other than Find-a-Grave, yet... Their markers certainly are the same and near each other so ? Ya really gotta love your sister, huh?......I'll look a little more. I married a girl whose dad (Synovec) was from Pierce.....stuff like this is what keeps me interested....Terry Hess, hesster@comcast.net
