Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been taking photographs at cemeteries for a long time - of family members - from Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Wisconsin. Ever so gradually I enter them on Find-A-Grave. I am also compiling a genealogy story of the Olsen family that moved from Denmark to southern Nuckolls County, Nebraska, and also entering information for families of the Longbranch Seventh Day Baptist Church, Nebr. and SDB Church, Nortonville, Kans.

Once at a cemetery, I photograph as many stones as I have time. Here in KS most are not related to me. If you come across one that you want to manage, let me know and it can be changed.

My family lines include: Burdick, Davis, Williams, Greene, Walker, Carpenter, White, Ownbey, Moffitt, London...
My husband's family lines include: Jorgensen, Olsen, Petersen, Riber, Frederiksen, Jeppesen, Iversen, Nielsen, Waggensen, Klitten, Christensen, Christiansen, and the list goes on.

Hi Jean, You may use my photo with my permission, with the name as it is. It is nice you are recording this for others to read and pictures always help make it more interesting I think. Luella

You're very welcome. I have an Apple computer. I put the photos on the desktop. Then I click on a photo and it opens in 'Preview.' In Preview I use 'Tools' in the upper tool bar. Tools lets me adjust the size, color, and add lettering, etc.
Ask Google - - - 'how do I add lettering to photos?' and it will tell you.

I added Goldie's death certificate to her memorial and sent edits to you to accept.

You are very welcome. I try to sponsor direct ancestors if they are not already sponsored. It is my way of honoring those who came before our family and made us what we are. Regards, Linne

Asdal Kirke Graveyard
Ok, I think I've figured out what the problem is...

If you will go into the Asdal Kirke Graveyard and change the Kommune to Hjorring, rather than Alborg, it will let you select Vennebjerg as the city. Asdal is in the Hjorring Kommune (Asdal is about 12 km's northwest of Hjorring), and that's where I was confused on the cemetery setup, since you have it listed in the Alborg Kommune. I just didn't want to set up another cemetery in the Hjorring commune, if there was only one Asdal Kirke, which it looks like that's the case.

The street address for the church is Allingdamvej 75, in case you would like to add it. You're right, Asdal is a very small town (so not an option on Find A Grave), but it is close to Vennebjerg...

We were in the area last year, mostly in Hjorring - it's beautiful and the people are very friendly!

Thanks for all you do on Find A Grave, it's appreciated.

Thank you so much! I couldn't find Anna Stevens on Find-a-Grave, so I added some info that I found about her on her mom's memorial.
