Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a long-time genealogist from the Heartland.

I am helping my genealogy group document the 1700 burials in the Remsen Community "City" Cemetery. The information has been compiled into 8 large 3-ring binders and is located in the Remsen Public Library.

As Remsen is celebrating 125 years in 2014, a 2nd huge project is the documentation of all the businesses in Remsen (1870-2014)including lot locations, news articles, photos, personal memories and more. This has never been done before. These binders will also be located in the Remsen Library and people will be able to add to them for a few years and then a book may be published.

We would also like to include the histories of prominent farmers and this project is just in its infancy. Please email me if you have questions.

Permission has been granted to reprint obits from the Remsen Bell-Enterprise newspaper and the Sioux City Journal. The only limitation for the Remsen Bell is that the obit be at least two weeks old.

info on Remsen for celebration
My family has strong ties to Plymouth county including Remsen. I likely have some info to contribute you would be interested in and I love to help out. What kind of info are you looking for?

PS Thanks for posting obituaries with the memorials, It helped me to figure out what happened to my great uncle who died at 3 yrs old (Louis W G Schmitz).

RE: Remsen Cemetery
I believe that Minnie Mohr was Minnie Law and I do have a picture of Minnie. Her Mother is my Great Grand Aunt.
Am trying to verify if it is her........ Thanks

Thank you so much for indexing the Remsen Cemetery. It will make our trip from Illinois to Remsen this coming week so much easier to find our ancestor's grave sites (John and Katherina Peters). Also, we appreciate you also putting the obituaries with the photos. It gave us information we didn't have. Rich and Sue Tyler
