Bio and Links
My interest in cemeteries is attributable solely to my genealogy research. After spending so much time in cemeteries looking for my own ancestors, I have truly come to appreciate their hidden beauty & the histories they hold. I am always intrigued by the wide variety of stones and markers I see, and the uniqueness of memorials left.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Find A Grave family. Finding this website was very significant for me. Not only for my own research, but also for the opportunities it gives me to search cemeteries I would probably not otherwise visit.


**********ALERT********** 12/27/13
I apologize for any delays in responding to messages and update/correction requests. I have been dealing with a family health issue (which, unfortunately, will continue for some time.)

I will process all requests/updates as soon as I can when I have extra time.

~Chris

Thanks for editing Emma and John Koenig. Would you also link Emma Klawiter Koenig # 68682701 to her husband John F Koenig # 68682734?

John was my grand uncle and he married two women named Emma!
Thanks very much!

My great grandparents stone
I was so happy and surprised to see the stone for my paternal great grand parents. We are doing research on GERMANS moving to Russia in the late 1700s. My family arrived in Russia on one of the first ships Catherine the Great invited her fellow countrymen to sail to Russia when she became homesick for her Germans. Finding the stone with dates helped my research. My husband and family are buried at Union in St. Paul and I was wondering if you would at sometime take a photo of the Wulff monument. It is a 12 foot obelisk in the front left corner. I am in Florida and would love to see you take and post a photo. I read that you have a serious family situation and will patiently be waiting for a reply. Thank You, Morticia

Photo - Gerald McQuerry
Thank you for taking the picture and adding Gerald McQuerry on FindAGrave. Pvt McQuerry is my uncle who died before I was born. Most of the family had not seen his tombstone but due to your insert, time and kindness - the family can view and know the stone location also.

J A Johnston
Hi, I was the Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness volunteer for St. Croix County and I did some research on this Johnston family. I am looking at old notes and see I noted this on the back of my copy of the Big River Presbyterian Cemetery Index: 8/2/1878, J. A. Johnston, an old resident of Black River Falls, was drowned on Thursday of last week. I must have gotten this from a newspaper - I used to do lots of research at the Research Center at the library at UWRF. FYI in case you want to find out more about him. Thank you!

Thank you very much for the photos of both Adolph and Amelia Schwarm. I realized you had to take the time and expense of traveling a number of miles to the cemetery and appreciate your effort and dedication.
