I had never heard of Find A Grave until I chanced upon it while doing a generic internet search of my grandfather's name, and was happily surprised to see a picture of his grave marker. I was hooked and signed up. Since then, FaG has allowed me to see many family headstones and markers that I will probably never see in person, and has added several previously unknown details to my family's genealogy records. THANK YOU! to everyone who gives so much of their time and effort, just because, to people they've never even met.|
I would like to extend a sincere THANK YOU to everyone who has left notes and flowers on my brother Kim's memorial page. Giving a moment of your time to do that means a lot to me, and though I have not personally thanked each individual, it is not because I am ungrateful, but because sometimes I look away pretty quickly... trying to avoid that emotional jolt that sometimes happens.
MY GENEALOGY RESEARCH-
NAMES IN THE FAMILY TREE:
Andersdotter, Carlsdotter, Carlson, Cotnam, Deen, Edmunds, Haase, Haskins, Heidtmann, Hughes, Jonsson, Leonard, McCaw, McCreary, McGrath, Nilsson, Olmstead, Olson, Olsson, Omstead, Phillips, Reed, Siedentopp, Smith, Solberg, Sykes, Teets, Tisdale, Trede, Walker...so many more. I know all the Scandinavian "...sons and dotters" can be very misleading, but those same names might be in someone else's records as well as mine, so I included them.
PLACES WHERE ANCESTORS SETTLED:
Massachusetts [1621!], New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska...
Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, Canada...
...and please don't hold this against me, but, California. A great place to visit, but NOT a great place in which to live. Get lost, Jerry, you're worse than Arnie.
IF SOME OF THESE NAMES AND PLACES ARE SIMILAR TO YOURS, maybe we have ancestors in common and can compare notes. They came from England, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Canada, and possibly Wales. Like most Americans, I am a certified mutt, but most importantly, simply AMERICAN.

Thank You very much for your response. I am just learning how to load the pictures etc. I will try to move the one for Louis to his site. That was a good idea. Some people ask for any other family members on Find A Grave - that is why I put it there. Thanks!

|Audrey||RE: Kim C. Olson|
Hi there...Thank you for the warm welcome to Findagrave. I have found people on this site very friendly. I too had to add my Mother and others to this site. It stings to see them listed so I know what you mean...I miss them so much.

|RLNT/Genea Logos||Your brother's memorial|
Thank you for letting me know how much what I said meant to you. As I work with Find A Grave I am always running across soldiers, like your brother and stop and pay tribute to them. I have a great love for the military. My grandfather served for England in WWI; my mother was a member of the Canadian Women's Army Corps and my father was in the United States Marine Corps during World War II. My husband was in the Unites States Air Force for 26 years serving during Korea and Vietnam; my step-son was in the Navy and my son-in-law was in the Army during the first Desert Storm. Those in the military sacrifice so much for us, it is the least I can do to honor them in such a small way.
