During the springs of 2000 and 2001 my wife and I toured parts of Europe and visited the birthplace, ancestral villages and descendants of my paternal great grandfather's family (Jan Czudek & Zuzanna Szmekova). This reunion closed a 93-year gap of my paternal family history.
During our trip to the eastern areas of the Czech Republic we visited the Kosariska cemetery to view the interment of my ancestors. I made notes of names and dates and took a couple of pictures. I decided to photograph a few of the other markers because the interment customs were different from back home. Before I knew it I was systematically photographing all the headstones at that cemetery. This was the beginning of my graving hobby!
Upon returning to the USA I created a website and transcribed the names and dates from all my photographs. Eight years later I discovered the Find A Grave site where biographies and photos could be stored. I decided to create the Kosariska cemetery, upload my records, write a cemetery biography, and scan my original photographs. That project was completed in the spring of 2008 and the Kosariska, CZ pictures and interments are now online.
I now concentrate my research where I live, primarily within Chisago County, Minnesota. All of the county cemeteries are represented on Find A Grave with their correct names, AKA's, gate photos, and GPS coordinates. There are no missing cemeteries. This link will take you to the listing:
Chisago County, MN cemetery list
All 42 Chisago County cemeteries have their pre-1995 transcriptions online as of 25-Aug-2011.
Work continues to bring post-1995 information online. Many photographs are in my queue and they are being uploaded as time permits. Other Find-A-Grave volunteers continue the photography of cemeteries in coordination, with the goal to avoid duplication of effort.
I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Chisago County Historical Society which holds a variety of uncirculated resource materials in addition to microfilms of area newspapers, township records, census records, and other public data. Visit the CCHS website Research Library page to review indexes of our various holdings.
My personal goal of my participation in the Find A Grave website is for my contributions to preserve history and help others who are pursuing their family genealogy, either now or in the future.

|Marlene Chaney||Irma Louise Ehrreich|
You have posted that all the Chisago County cemeteries have been researched. I am looking for the burial site of Irma Louise Ehrreich who died 21 Mar 1998 in Rush City. They lived there for many years.
Her son, Thomas Alan Ehrreich who died 14 Jul 2011 #73392206 is buried in Saint Johns Cemetery in Rush City. I'm wondering if his mother is also buried there. I do not have her obituary and she is not at present on F-A-G.
Your help would be very much appreciated. I am a cousin of Irma Louise Radunz Ehrreich. Thank you.
|Marlene Chaney||Thomas Alan Ehrreich # 73392206|
In your entry for subject memorial you linked Thomas with Richard William Ehrreich buried in Fort Snelling as his father but you were not sure. I wish to advise you that your link is correct. I am a relative of Thomas's mother.
Thank you for all your hard work.

|Meri Waterhouse||Edward H. Merrell -Kahbakong Cemetery|
Thank you so much for the photograph of little Edward H. Merrill's grave. He died very young (we don't know why the early death). His actual birth date was 05 Dec 1871 (very close to your estimate!). He was a brother to my great grandfather Lincoln Merrill. Thank you again for the labor of love you do. Meri Waterhouse
