Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a second generation Swedish-American living between northern Wisconsin and Cairo, Egypt.

I'm doing research on ancestors who emigrated to the U.S. from Sweden and Norway and now learning about Irish relatives.

In Egypt, I'm doing volunteer work, researching the American Cemetery in Cairo, focusing on documenting the graves and researching the lives of persons buried there as part of an effort to improve the conditions of the cemetery.

I am willing to help with taking pictures at cemeteries. I read Swedish and am happy to provide help translating passages from old documents.

I international development work and am sometimes away from email for a few weeks so be patient with my replies.

RE: Memorial Transfers
I just added an Okonek family in Calvary Cemetery and when I was researching their family connections I think I found your family tree. Would you like me to transfer them to you? Frances 168065150, Verne 168065226, Theodore 168065198.

RE: Lillian Smith Johnson
Hi Greg,

I was posting a Memorial for Robert Henry Smith
167330386. Robert lives near me and just passed away.
Robert's father was Alec Henry Smith and Alec is Lillian's Brother. I just noticed Lillian and Alec's mother was not linked to them.

If I can find links that are not complete when posting memorials I try to make the connection if I can.

Thanks for the message. If you would like Robert's memorial transferred to you just let me know since you are related.

RE: Florilla Hanson - Spooner Cemetery
I do not know Randy & David Nelson. I was in the cemetery taking photos of my own family so I took photos of the surrounding blocks. I can transfer them to you since you know the family.

RE: James Gaussen Cairo Egypt 1945
have you found the burial location and photo yet? Certainly not the easiest spot to work for sure.
Let me know of your progress.

RE: Hilmers in Spooner Cemetery
I didn't create the memorials so I don't know. When I linked their daughter to them I noticed they didn't have tombstone photos so I requested one.

RE: Spooner Cemetery
Hi Greg, I must admit that I have yet to go to the Spooner Cemetery to fulfill the photo requests. The cemetery is an hour away, and one of my hips has not been behaving very well. So I am getting out of graving. I know nothing about updating the cemetery database.

You may wish to communicate with James Cameron about this. Please feel free to share this with him.

Have a good summer!
