|Bio and Links|
I fell into this ancestry thing 4 yrs ago when a cousin in Brazil asked for the dates of our grandmother's birth & death. It snowballed from there into family trees, etc. and researching our history, both for my husband and myself. Then when I began photographing graves, someone from RAOGK (Random Acts of Geneological Kindness) told me if I was doing my family graves then it would benefit others to photograph graves in the same cemetery! So another hobby was born as if I didn't have enough to do anyway! I am recovering from breast cancer & I find (& have always found) cemeteries restful, interesting and peaceful on a sunny day...and this gives me a chance to have a hobby that I am passionate about that I can work on at my own pace. Thanks to all the Find A Grave volunteers!|
By the way, I am very pleased to make links, suggestions & transfers that are reasonable.
Please keep requests within the Findagrave transfer policy... namely parents, siblings, grand & great grandparents or 1st generation aunts & uncles. I try to do the best I can with photos but our weather in Oregon this year (2011) in particular has been wet & soggy. Many of the graves are covered in mud or wet when I photo. If you need a better picture I would not be at all adverse to re-doing if you are a family member. Or if you want to take a better photo you are always welcome to add it to my entry & I can delete my picture.

|Pat Osborn||Oline Brunzell|
Just a note to let you know that Oline Bergitte MOE BRUNZELL,#38263653, was born in 1852 and not 1862. She was married to Fredrik BRUNZELL, 11 Jun 1871 at the "Little Church Around the Corner" in New York City. She was on her way from Norway to visit an uncle in Minnesota or that vicinity and Fred was on his way home from a visit to Sweden. They fell in love on the ship and were married when they reached New York. They came on to his home in Silver City, Owyhee, Idaho Territory and she never did get to see her uncle. Fred was a brother to my great grandfather, Jan Magnus BRUNZELL. I visit their graves every memorial day and take flowers.
Thank you creating the Maginnis family memorials at Mt. Calvary and for creating the links and great photos. The Maginnis family is not my immediate family but my grandfather's nephew resided with Marguerite Maginnis (that I added). He died in Oregon and it has taken me 15 years to locate his grave.
Your Maginnis memorials led me to the correct cemetery and they have an online site that I searched. He was located by a first name search since his last name, Demar had been spelled
Thank you, thank you, thank you, :)

Thanks for the speedy family link on the Cronn family.
Thank you. If you know, may I ask how you ended up entering one of my grandparents and someone else entered the other?
This is my grandmother, may I please have the memorial transferred to me? I would like to link her and my grandfather with my father and the rest of the family that I have now had transferred to me. Thank you,
|Joe Schallan||RE: Leineweber|
Thanks for the Leineweber transfers! I've already made the family links among them. And, again, thanks for getting the memorials put up on Find A Grave. It was wonderful finding these relatives!
|Millie Roberts||RE: Mary M.Wallace|
Thank you, I deleted my entry for her.
|Beta Mouse||RE: Doug|
Thanks for all the information on this site. The last time I saw "Dickie" (as Doug called him then) I think he was 12 or 13 years old. How is he? In the photo he looks trim and healthy.
Is there a way for us to connect other than through a public message on findagrave? I'd be glad to give you my email address.
|Beta Mouse||Doug McLane|
I posted a photo of Doug McLane on his findagrave memorial page. I think this photo was taken in the summer of 1973 at Multnomah Falls -- we had just hiked to the top. I was sorry to hear of Doug's passing. I had hoped to reconnect with him.
|Pat McLachlan||Thank you!|
So appreciate your transfer of our Fraser relatives. Hope your good Find A Grave experiences outnumber those which are thistly.
