Bio and Links
Bio Photo Maybe I'm a bit weird, but cemeteries interest me. I don't find them macabre, creepy, depressing or scary so since I like looking around at them, learning local history, etc., I figured volunteering to help others by photographing headstones, locating graves and other information and the like was something I would enjoy.

Obviously, I'm very new to Find a Grave but I will endeavor to do my best in fulfilling photo requests or supplying whatever other information you ask of me. I'm still learning how the system here works, and am not yet confident how to perform transfers, etc. Please be patient with me while I become acquainted with the guidelines and methods, as I don't want to step on any toes.

I am also especially interested in information regarding my family: The Kowalski family of Moorhead (Fred "Fritz" G. Kowalski, his wife Helen Kaiser Kowalski, etc), the family of Nils and Adeline (Hanson) Reitan, etc. I've been researching my family on and off for a couple of years now, and have found some neat information, pictures, etc., but I would like to go back further, learn more, etc. Also, if anyone is seeking information on the Kaiser, Kowalski, Nemzek, Reitan, and Hanson families from the Fargo-Moorhead area, I may have information to share with you (very little info on Nemzek & Kaiser at this point), so please ask. :)

Sandra Kowlaski Marriage
Hi! I have a marriage record from 11 May 1965 from Roberts County, South Dakota that shows a Sandra Kowalski - Age 23 a resident of Moorehead, Clay County, Minnesota and an Ivan Grossnickle - Age 25 also a resident of Moorehead, Clay County, Minnesota. Also wondering if they had children? I can find no other Sandra Kowalski. If you don't know about this marriage, perhaps a family member does. I would appreciate any information you can provide. You will see an email from a dinkydixie at ---- dot com. You may send your answer there to my private email. (I won't put the rest in for privacy). Thank so much in advance!

memorial transfers
Officially the Findagrave policy is to transfer memorials to direct descendents only. I take photos and post memorials for entire cemeteries, and am not related to any of them. I am thrilled to be able to transfer them to anyone who is related.

Betty's memorial
I transferred Betty's memorial to you. I am not related in any way, just a volunteer who takes cemetery photos. I'd rather her memorial be managed by family. Now you can add whatever you want to her biography.
