|Bio and Links|
I am busy documenting Minnesota cemeteries in the following counties. Chippewa, Swift, Lac qui Parle, Yellow Medicine, Big Stone. I have pretty much completed photographing Chippewa and Lac qui Parle County. I have over 30,000 digital pics in my collection. A lot were taken during the Fall of 2006 and 2007.|
If you have a name of a cemetery located in Minnesota but need help in its location, try emailing me. I have GPS mapped cemeteries for pretty much everything south of the Minnesota River and western half of Minnesota. No pics. Just GPS coordinates. update: with stage 4 cancer, I really do not have much time for this project.
You think you have some decades left to work on this tombstone project of mine and then a seizure lead to MRI test which found a very rare cancer in my left nasal cavity. So samples have been sent to research folkes and what was I exposed to that would be so unique.
I will find out the MRI results of the first round of chemo treatment this Friday, Sep 16 2011. I was told that it is so rare that samples have been sent out and what was I exposed to that would be so very rare that I breathed it in. No treatment might mean less than a year left.
Like the movie The Bucket List, starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, my bucket list is a simplier one. I need to wrap up my work on the smaller cemeteries in my area and see if there is anytime left for the larger cemeteries in my area. So a master index for my area with digital photos linked to their names. If I had more time, additional family notes posted on the internet to be linked to a tombstone. That takes a lot of research for one marker.
Again with my photo icon, the fighter pilot in the movie Independance Day is kinda like me. The missile represents the harshest chemos drugs that I am taking. The alien ship represents the cancer cells. I hope I can get the 2nd round of chemo started this Friday Sep 16 2011. And I was curious how that actor was doing today. I did not realize he is going through tough times himself. I hope he has better times coming to him.

Hello. Very grateful for information found here about Engebret Kolstad--that he married Julia Hagen in the town of Wanamingo.
Would love more details. Anyone have some ideas?

Hi Michael; hope this note finds you in better health. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am asking for permission to repost your pictures of the Rasmussen graves online at Ancestry.com. I would of course credit you with the photos. Please let me know one way or the other.
Again, I'm hoping you are doing better with your health. It looks like you have been so involved in volunteering with this work which is appreciated much more than you can ever know.
|Donna Jackson||RE: Six Mile Grove Cemetery, Swift County, Minnesota, USA|
I uploaded the wrong spreadsheet to Six Mile Grove, Swift County, Minnesota USA - it should have been uploaded to Trinity Lutheran Swenoda Township, Swift County, Minnesota, USA.
This is definitely my fault (the files are next to each other and I selected the wrong one while my 100+ lb dog was trying to jump in my lap)and I do apologize, if you wish to take it down, and have me reload it to the right cemetery, please do so.
I am still working on Six Mile Grove Cemetery, and will be through with it by Monday.
Please let me know how you want to handle this.
|Donna Jackson||RE: Ralph Hatlelid correction|
I am in process of working on changing the name of the Swenoda Cemetery and uploading all the transcribed/photos graves, and will continue to update until it is complete.
I am going in front of the Swift Co Commission on 04/03/12 to request assistance in the form of supplies and fuel to allow me to finish all of the cemeteries in Swift Co.
I will also be working with the local museum/historical society to get all of the obits, etc. scanned/copied so they are available for any genealogical tourists that come to the area.
If you live in Swift Co., we need to get a large number of people to work on getting the county commission to pass an ordinance protecting the old forgotten cemeteries in the county.
Can use all the help I can get.
Michael I just read your profile and I hope things are looking up for you and that you are doing better :) I was wondering with all the work you have done have you come across a Henry John Querl/Quirl (1869- February 15, 1933)He died in Wadena but he has family buried in Lac Qui Parle County, Swift and Yellow Medicine Co. and was curiuos if you had come across him.. I have obtained his death cert. but it doesnt list a burial and the gen. society wasnt able to find an obit for him.. just thought I'd ask. Take care and Happy Holidays !

"The Harvey David Armstrong in this cemetery is most likely a brother of James Henry Armstrong."
I copied this from your comment about a headstone at the Buffalo Lake Lutheran Cemetery, MN. Harvey and (James) Henry Armstrong were first cousins. Harvey's father, David Armstrong, and Henry Armstrong's father, William H. Armstrong, were brothers. David and William's father was James Armstrong. I thought you might like to have this information. Thanks for your additions to the Buffalo Lake Cemetery findagrave site. C.A.
I downloaded the prints tonight and posted them. I think that you can get a pretty good idea of the cemetery and where it is located. It is in a beautiful area of Hopkins. I haven't had a chance to call about any other Koppelman's in the cemetery, but will try to next week.

I found Arthur's grave today. It was, indeed, SW of the statue. First row, 15 feet from the corner. I was able to get photos of the stone, the flowers left around the stone, and a shot of his grave and the statues. I spent about an hour or so walking around the area and was unable to find any other Koppelman's. That doesn't mean there aren't any, I just wasn't able to find it. I will try calling the cemetery and see if they can help me locate it.
I will post these tomorrow, as I have a project for school that I need to finish before tomorrow night. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. My best wishes for you as you check off your bucket list.
