Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family history since about 2004, but have more recently begun using Find A Grave. I am excited by the possibilities Find A Grave offers for sharing information and making new discoveries. Surnames I am working on in particular are Ripke, Nehring, Anderson, Hubbard, Brewer, Brown, Wright, Scharff, Rahn, Carter, Robbins and Johnson.

I have documented several Hawaiian cemeteries while vacationing. I have no further information on any of those memorials. I am happy to add information or transfer memorials to you, if you are related.

RE: Fink Family Transfers!
A few years back I used a source called Genweb.com to find cemetery listings. I ended up doing about 50,000 memorials in three years! I checked virtually all counties in many of the United States. Thus I scoured Iowa, my home state, and entered many cemeteries. Little did I know or appreciate the amount of ongoing work I was creating for myself! I get many emails daily with questions, edits, obits, etc.

I turned from listing cemetery listings to photographing graves as a volunteer. I have done many of the western suburb cemeteries and Wright County. I enjoy the fresh air, beautiful drives in the country, and scenic cemeteries. I think of myself as the "Cemetery Guy!"

Best to you always!

Actually the newspaper was found in the Oelwein Daily Register, Jul 6, 1954. Please Correct.

Thank you Kathy, for the great photos of the Kari and Lars Nyborg gravesite at Elm Park Cemetery. Their memorials are so much more complete with your photos. Best Wishes.
