The IWPP was created in September 2005 by Carina and Gary Nelson. Carina is Swedish born whose Grandfather served on the King's Guard of Sweden. Gary is a retired Staff Sergeant of the Washington DC Air National Guard, a retired Police Sergeant as well as retired from the Federal Government. |
RECENTLY we have discovered a great number of images uploaded to our Memorial pages which were lifted from other web sites in violation of copyright laws. These will be reported to FindAGrave and the Contributor in question IMMEDIATELY when discovered.
Beginning May 28, 2012 Carina and Gary relocated to Osthammar, Sweden.
TRANSFERS: We will transfer ANY RELATIVE or FAMILY relation. We also transfer interments to BONA FIDE researchers. No name collectors please. IF YOU DO NOT SPECIFY A RELATIONSHIP IN AN SAC OR EMAIL YOUR REQUEST WILL BE DELETED AND NO REPLY GIVEN. We are inundated with SACs and cannot reply if your request does not meet the aforementioned.
REGARDING THE MASS UPLOAD OF INTERMENTS FOR THE NATIONAL CEMETERIES: Recently the IWPP and its Associates uploaded around 800,000 names to the National Cemeteries. The upload is complete but due to spelling errors on the previous interments duplicates were created. The cemeteries are being checked for same but the IWPP can use additional help triaging the cemeteries for dupes. Any help and contribution to this effort is greatly appreciated.
Over the years several people have stepped forward and embraced the idea of the Project and either through the Project or their individual efforts have made a difference in recognizing the War Fallen and military Veterans the world over.

I know I am asking a huge favor, but the grandson of a 1st cousin died during 1918 while fighting in WW1, and his mother had his remains brought home for burial. All I have is the year of his death, 1918, and that he was a Pvt. in the 47th Infantry, Co.L. He enlisted into the Army from Bond County, Illinois, I believe, as that is where he lived. His mother was Martha E. and his father was William. I realize that there were so very many John Browns who died during that war.... I could not find him thru my regular web sites. He was born in June, 1893. Thank you so very much for any information you can share with me and Happy Holidays. Thank you for all of your work on Find A Grave and the other sites.
With All Sincerity,
Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, OR
Thanks for all your work!
