Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Julrene (Olson) Thornberg. I got interested in Genealogy in 2000 when my family bought me a genealogy family kit and gave me an old computer, which I had never used ever.
Threw the years my mother had given me family obits which I threw in a shoe box, wondering what I was going to do with them?
In 2000 I was contacted by a distant relatives in Minnesota who wanted my information. That got me looking at all the old obits and off I went! Couldn't stop looking for the old folks that went before.
I spent 6 weeks in 2005 in my travel trailer in Minnesota looking for relatives in cemetery's,at the historical museum for anything like birth, baptismal & death records. Calling on the phone asking people if they might be related to me and could I have their family information.
I found many family relatives that I have met and am still contacted with. Going from state to state to meet them and take pictures of their homes and them to add to my family records.

Then I got hooked on Find A Grave and added all my pictures of stones I took threw the years. I am still looking and adding information I can to help out many other familys.

RE: Soren Helmer Johnson
Sure, if you correct your record to his correct name. You can add 'Helmer' as also his nickname to emphasize which he used, but the gravestones are S. Helmer and Soren Helmer. I think that's why you missed the record in the first place when you sent me the obit. Add a note above the obits that he mostly used Helmer. Reversing it just confuses another researcher looking for the true legal name.

You know this can only be looked up as a hyphenated name. Are you sure you wish to leave it this way? You can't look up either Lee or Ludlow and find her.

Lorel B. (Knuth) Rosene
Hi, Julrene!
I did a search on your grandmothers sister, Lorel B. (Knuth) {Carlson} Rosene. What I found is she was born on 23 Aug 1906 and died on 4 Jun 1988 in Fond du Lac, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin.
Burial is in the Ledgeview Memorial Park, Cemetery, Lot 40 O, Space 1, Fond du Lac, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin.
No one has made a Find A Grave Memorial for her. I did not find any information on her second husband.
Hope this helps in your search.
Best regards,

Charles Winter
Hello there,

My name is Kasey and I'm researching my husband's adopted father's line. My husband's stepfather is descended from Philip Elmer Winter, son of Philip Richard Winter, son of Michael and Catherine Winter. Philip Richard Winter had a brother named Charles. I noticed on his Find A Grave memorial that there is a picture of his family. Are you related in anyway?

Thanks so much for the info

Thanks for the obituary! I didn't have it for my family tree. My Grandma Helen always kept in touch with the Hagens.
