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!

I noticed you attached an obituary to her memorial. I was wondering if you were related? If so that would make us cousins and was hoping to connect in sharing information on our shared family history.

If you aren't related, thank you for sharing her obituary! It helps the rest of us connect the dots.

I am just wondering if you know anymore about this memorial. I think it may be my 3x great grandma's little brother.
If not, do you know where I might locate some info on this person to see if I can verify?
Thanks so much

I requested these two memorials to be transferred to me awhile back. Are you related, and if so I understand if you don't want to transfer them to me. Joseph Forsyth Memorial #36840563 and Lucy Forsyth memorial # 36840625. Thanks Kate DeMers

I've seen that you have taken many photos in the NE Nebraska area, where my family is from. May I use your photos in my family tree? Thanks, Bob Jensen

Gustav Frederick Wulf
I am curious to know if the date of birth is correct. I see in the obituary that his birth date is given as 1875 but you have it as 1874. The 1900 census gives his birthdate as Aug 1875 as well.

Thank you so much for the work you have done.

Wulf family
Thank you so much for the information you provided on the Wulf family and the photos from Oakland cemetery in Clinton, IA. I just emailed you so hope you received the 2 emails, the one I just sent today, 8/31,containing additional info on Claus's children. One was my g. grandfather, named William Emil Wulf, as was your grandfather. Others were Hulda, Dora and Meta. I believe Dora is the Catherine Dorothea Folsom, listed as a child of Claus. Much more info in my email. Thanks again! Nan Talbot
