Bio and Links
Bio Photo Dale and Corinne were both born and raised in southern Minnesota. Family has always been important and family stories and information has been remembered and recalled often. Corinne first began her 'official' family quest in 1947 when she began quizzing family members and taking notes. Dale has been the photographer and many a memory and ancestor has been preserved.

The family project has taken both of them to interesting people and places, not to mention interesting events of history.

Corinne is the genealogist, Dale the photographer and principal maintainer of this site and children Gail, Kathy, Serle and Lisa have also been active contributors.

We are happy to make family connections, corrections or add information with a request. Will transefer to direct family members only to the fourth generation (per FAG guidelines). Very often ther are multiple relatives requesting the same memorial.
If requesting a transfer, please indicate how you are related.

The idea behind Find-A-Grave is not to own all your relatives memorials. We have too many contributors who want the memorial simply because they are a relative & they have minimal or no additional information to contribute to the memorial.

She isn't the daughter of Lewis and Kari. In the 1925 Iowa census, Lewis's Anna is still single.

I would like to thank you and your husband for all your hard work and dedication to our community! I thought that you would like to know that the Memorial for Rena Daisy Halverson Stransky is a duplicate (Find A Grave Mem #56897077. Is there any way these can be combinded? The other memorial has no obit. Thanks for your attention.

Siblings of Gustav J. Schwanke
Dale & Connie, I know it is very confusing in figuring out my Great GrandFather Gustav's siblings as he married his first cousin Albertina H. Schwanke. Great Great Grandfathers Daniel & Frederick Schwanke moved between Minnesota & Wisconson and had 23 children between them. Frederick Schwanke's ancestry has been pretty well researched and documented. One website that is a good reference is: Also I have Fredrick's family written history and Gustav's obituary which list his siblings. Below is a list, for your research & considerations for corrections/additions to your Find a Grave postings on Gustav J. and Albertia H. I can provide born & rip dates for most. Shown is Find A Grave#'s. Presently, you have too many siblings for Gustav.

Laura M. Brewer

The profile that you maintain for Laura M. Brewer is the same as profile id#131790991. Is there a way you combine them so there is only one out there?

First, I want to give a heartfelt thank you to you both for the memorial and photo and gravestone marker photo of my distant cousin, Kelly Ray Hubbard.

May I have your permission to use the photos in my family tree? I would give credit to you for the memorial and photos.
Thank you, Debbie #47064450

Cooney Family
I am trying to locate the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of:

Margaret Lawless Cooney Find A Grave# 110288024 and
John F. Cooney Find A Grave# 80075737

I have information on Margaret and John's son, James Francis Find A Grave# 80783159 but he had two sons from the information I have. One that died the day he was born Find A Grave# 80783096; and one James Francis Jr. I have no information on his wife or the two boys he had-Patrick and Timothy.

If Wilfred Find A Grave# 80783117, is the son of Margaret and John, I will have all the children. I do not know if Wilfred was married or had children. Is Wilfred's grave near his father?

I do not have birth dates so am having a difficult time, particularly since I am new at this.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
