Bio and Links
Bio Photo Both of my grandma's had 13 children, I have been interested in how many family members are actually connected to me, ever since I was a very young girl!

I went to Sweden and Norway for a month in the summer of 2012, hoping to visit all of my ancestral homelands I knew of at that time. I have learned of a few more locations and details since then; I guess I will need to go back again someday.

Meanwhile, I will continue to add photos, new information & more connections, on all of my relatives & extended family members, here on the States side.

I think the "Find A Grave" contributors and volunteers do a great service to all researchers! This link is very helpful with genealogy subjects and also in locating any long lost loved ones... I appreciate all the data shared at this site.

I'm very happy to help out, whatever ways I can!

If you see that I have created a memorial that connects somehow to you, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'd also appreciate hearing from other families who are connected to my relatives as well... I'd love to see more details & photos added here, to all their memorials! I have an edit tab as a contributor now... if you send any details to me, I now see how to handle them right away for you!

I will be adding more photos from my cemetery visits... since I started filling photo requests, I usually always take extra pictures of nearby areas as well.

I see you added a bio for him at Lakewood. Just came across a story about him when he died. It is on page 8, 5th column, title Patrolman Shelley Dead

RE: Gassler memorial
I notice that the cemetery is now on the original that was posted 7/9/09 #32952476. The duplicate that was made in 2014 remains. I agree that most people are striving for accuracy, unfortunately some just want to rack up the numbers. I am always happy to transfer as you can see by my numbers. Hope this gets solved for you. The only other thing I can offer is to remove the photograph if that is what you would prefer.

RE: Mary Katherine Gassler Drenth
I think you need to sort out the duplication of Iriss Hills's original memorial 7/9/09 and the duplicate made by Susan Bennett 7/21/14 and the difference in burial locations, neither obituary lists the place of burial in the copy and the funeral home does not mention burial at all. The photograph came from Memorial Park Funeral Home. Sorry I can not help more.

RE: Martha Peterson
I never even saw the claim so didn't seem like a long time at all. I was just grateful for the find. I am trying to document the students from our local high school. She was in the first class of the new school and the one that replaced it was started in 1954. Thanks for helping me out on this.
