Bio and Links
A "Thank You" goes a long way. If another Find A Grave account holder has helped you in adding family info, send them an email or public message. A few of them have helped me with my research. :)

I'm researching the following names: Vanshur (of course), Stieren, Rexin, Gocken, Seagle, and a branch of the Smiths.

I've been doing genealogy for over 30 years. I am willing to transfer management of a grave provided they are not a direct descendant per Find A Grave guidelines. If you wish me to transfer management, please send the request via the Edit tab. That way I can transfer the correct info.

Lillian Rexin
I made a Memorial for Lillian Rexin, Willy's wife and will be happy to transfer the Memorial over to you if you would like to maintain it.

Helen & Roland Olsen in Memorial
This is a flat-stone cemetery, so I left a written description of how to find the grave in addition to the GPS

I will be at Resurrection Cemetery tomorrow July 9 at 8AM to visit the graves of family, friends buried there and to take requested photos. If you can get the grave information to me by then I will be happy to take the photo. Wish I lived closer so and could take photos anytime but I live in Las Vegas.

Frieda was a Legband
Thanks--I appreciate your kind letter via e-mail

Was Frieda Moller a Legband?
Thank you so much for sending this edit. I tried to verify it with the National Archives, but drew a blank. If you have, say, an obituary or funeral leaflet for her, I would be happy to transcribe it and add it to her bio, along with a thanks to you. If you have another way you know her maiden name was Legband I would like to add that to her bio as well.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Update for Mary Petersen, # 115490808
Hi Bryan,

Thank you for the info on Mary. I have added the details to her memorial, and I also worked a bit with hers, as well as some related memorials.

I am so terrible about starting something, and then find I cannot finish or become distracted. Leaves my memorials in a BIG mess, so your message inspired me to brush up a bit. :-)

In any event, if you see anything out of place, or have anything else to add, please let me know.

Thanks again,

RE: Update for Alma Beck
Going through some old messages. I do not remember doing any changes. Did they get done? If you send me what you need and I will get it done.

Magdalena Grosse and the Cedar Bluffs centennial book
Thank you again for providing source. I did accept your edits and cited source there too.

Only birth place needed for Magdalena Grosse
So sorry--somebody else for a different person said died in Dodge County, Nebraska.
