Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Fresno, California of Alabama born parents, got into Genealogy in 1997 when I could not figure out what else to do with this computer on-line. I have built up quite a lot of pictures of old shots of Clay County and Jefferson County Alabama. I have visited most of the cemeteries of my ancestors and my Wife's ancestors in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A Self-proclaimed Historian with a California Historical society (E Clampus Vitus), I am visiting places of historical interest and with my trusty Dimage , Vivitar and Olympus digital cameras have been taking pictures of headstones at whatever cemeteries we may visit and Historical Monuments in our travels in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington. In Fresno, I have added the 1919 biographies of early Fresno residents from the Paul E Vandor book titled "The History of Fresno County" to as many listings as I could. If you have something you would like to have added to a Bio, just drop me a line.

I follow FindaGrave rules and usually transfer close relatives within 30 days. You can complain to the FindaGrave administrators if you want, but you will likely find they too have little patience for impatient people.

Jennifer Terrio
Niels or N.P. or Nels Sorensen
Hello my name is Jennifer Terrio and I am related to the Sorensen's of the Selma/Kingsburg area. You have written on Christian Sorensen's (Find A Grave Memorial # 37591585 at Mendocino Cemetery, Parlier, Fresno, CA) bio of his brothers Soren and Niels. I noticed you knew a lot about the family and I would like to know where might Niels be buried if you had any idea at all.
Thank you so much for any help you can give me.
