Bio and Links
Armchair Geneology is one of my passions. Family history and cultural influences have intrigued me from an early age. My husband and I also enjoy fishing and canoing, visiting with friends and family, especially our sons and their families. I relax with a little geneology reserch as time allows.

I am researching family sites in North Dakota, Minnesota, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, California and Montana. My focus is Gustafson and Dighton families of Fingal, Tower City, Alice and Fargo, ND; Detroit Lakes, MN, Canada, Lillehammer Norway and Stockholm Sweden; Heister of Austin, MN and ND; Skelton/Johnson of Moose Lake, MN; Tiemessen of New Hampton, IA . . . originally Netherlands; also Kepplinger of IL and Germany. My husband's family surnames include Higgins, Pierce, McAskill, and LeBeau of northern MN, MI, Canada, France, Scotland and Ireland.

Thank you to all who have photographed and left flowers for our family gravesides or entered online information for all to visit easily. I look forward to meeting you as we volunteer our time, talents and research. Please share or suggest changes or updates you may come across. I am happy to hear from friends and family old and new.

Kepplingers in Goodfarm

I seen you recently left a flower for the memorial of one of the Kepplingers in Goodfarm Cemetery in Grundy County, IL. I did memorials & photos for the cemetery. Recently someone contacted me through Findagrave about the Kepplingers. Would that have been you? I accidentally deleted the emails and I am trying to connect with that person.

Thank You. Have a good day!!

Best Wishes,

I think I have made the changes you requested correctly.
If not, I can transfer this memorial to you and you can tend to it.
We both want it to be accurate! :-)

RE: Aunt Pat
Actually I only made Aunt Pat's memorial. If you click the name under the photo, that is the contributor who added the pictures.
Since Patricia is your relation, I have transferred management of her memorial to your care.
Welcome to the Findagrave family.

RE: Gustafson/Pederson transfer
Just send me the memorial numbers of the memorials you would like me to transfer to you and I'd be happy to do it. :)

I sent the message below to your e mail address and it bounced back. Tried again and it bounced back again, so am posting my reply here.

You will have to send a note to the contributor of Emil's page to have his mother added. You can't link the children on the parents page.

I have added that link..... however please log in to the findagrave website and click on the Edit button at the memorial page and make requests from there . It will make it easier for both of us. Thanks Karen

Oops! I hit enter too soon! I made the additions you suggested. Would you like me to transfer ownership of the memorials to you? I'd be happy to since they are your family. Just let me know!
