Echoes of a distant past can be heard throughout these pages. Each reflect a life that was lived not forgotten through the ages. It's more than just a name or date found on a document in a cold and drafty place. It's a link of our past ~ tied to our future of our lives intertwined ~ of our history interlaced. We cannot live our future without looking at our past. For written upon the pages of time are stories of our forefathers that are forever will last. What lies between the moments of our first breath and when we perish. Treasured memories of a life that is lived should be recorded, shared and cherished. Every joy and sorrow, every triumph and loss each and every day. Bears witness to a struggle that each of us has to find meaning and purpose , To find a better way. Not for the ancestors passed on long ago, but for all the descendants to come. Our life will never be lived in vain if it lives on in the heart of someone.

Mystery Solved Today! The first wife of an uncle of my maternal grandmother has been a mystery to me.......until today! And in finding her roots, I have found you, surely a blood relative, I believe.
I think she would be more appropriately in your hands. I'll transfer after sending this message. She is http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=54877151.
I have known her as Winnogene C. Osborn Berry. Today I found a source that has Ora Winnogene Osborn as her name. I edited her memorial to reflect that, but it could be the name I had is the actual correct one.
RE: Wilminko I did locate a marker for Mike Wilminko at Hope Lutheran Cemetery near Floodwood, MN, today, very near the grave for Hannah Wilminko. I did not find one for Karl Wilminko, but did find one next to Hannah's for Karl O. Wiitanen with the same dates as the one you requested 1870-1942. Also added the Wilminko family members buried in Forest Hill Cemetery.
