My interest in family history has brought me to this website and to be a contributor. My family attended a reunion in Meraker, Norway in 1999 to meet relatives and stay at the farm which my father was born. It is still a functioning farm and had a hostel/campground on the property. The farm is still owned by relatives. Gudmund Brende was from Meraker and settled in the Baltic/Renner area outside of Sioux Falls, SD. Gudmund and the Mayor of Meraker were two people involved in bringing Norwegians to America. Goodman picked up most of these immigrants with horse and wagon when they arrived on the train in Sioux Falls, SD. My wife is interested in the our family histories and is my soulmate. Our journey to find and document our relatives is one of shared interest. Her Grandfather owned and operated Lone Tree, located between Egan and Colman at the junction of Hwy 34 and old Hwy 77.

From 1970 until retirement in 2010, served in the Army and Air National Guard in SD, NE and KS.

Would you like to have Betty Marie transferred to you? I am not a relative.

Thank you for taking the time to read my request regarding verifying info when asking for corrections, edits, etc. and then doing so! Extremely helpful and very much appreciated! Are you a relative of these people? And if you are, would you be interested in taking management?

I'm sorry you said Helen was your Grand Aunt, but Helen who? Your message was about Edyth again.

The changes are much easier for me to make if you simply add them in the Edit section.

Of course, some things aren't listed there, and I will always be happy to add whatever else you have from a regular message.

Thanks, hopes the reunion goes well.

RE: Adolph Kroger
I received your message - Adolph was my mother's brother. My parents were Art & Dora Rosenwald. I see that you are maintaining their Find-A-Grave site. If you need any information about the Rosenwald-Kroger families just let me know - I have the entire tree on Ancestry.

Please, you are going to need to slow down. Find a grave is a hobby, not a full time job.

Find-A-Grave Guidlines:
Please limit the use of this option to no more than 20 email requests per contributor per week.

What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond? Have patience. Many contributors receive hundreds of corrections every month and it may take a while for your correction to be processed. Also, not every Find A Grave contributor is active on a daily basis on the site.

thank you,
