Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogist since 1980 and have discovered that information included in cemetery memorials is vital in researching family history. I will do what I can to expand that information and make it available to others.

I am photographing cemeteries in Beltrami County, Minnesota. I have been adding obituaries, from clippings in Obituary scrapbooks, from the Kelliher History Center. I have also been using my genealogy skills to link family members, and add census information where possible.

You have my permission to use any photos that I have personally taken in your own family research.

Numbers in Find-A-Grave are not important to me. I don't hoard memorials and will transfer if a memorial is for a member of your family. The only memorials I do not wish to transfer are those of my own family members.

Genee Jacobson
George Clifford Liljegren
Hi Maureen, Stina Kajsa Liljegren is my great grandmother. Her son by her first marriage to August Jacobson Charles John ( born Carl Johan) Jacobson is my grandfather. I visited Minnesota and followed my family's movements from town to town. I do not have documentation but I have seen the church records in Rush City, Minnesota and George Clifford is the son of Olof P. Liljegren and his wife Stina Kajsa. Stina sometimes appears in U.S. records as Christine, Christina etc. but in the Lutheran church records in the United States and in Sweden she is Stina Kajsa Persdotter. I have an image of the parish record of her baptism if you are interested.

Hi Maureen,
Thanks for the update on Norma Palmer. Yes, I have encountered several grave markers where a wife is not burried with her last husband. I know it's a duplication to have Norma also listed under Bartell, but if someone is looking for her under her first husband's name they might have some difficulty. I did add the information you gave me to the bio in the memorial of Norma Bartell.
Happy New Year.

Minnesota Place Names is not online right now at but in Shakespeare the birds are quiring in some sonnet or play and quire is a form of choir so "singing" or "making music" is somewhat the meaning of Quiring. I will keep looking for Minnesota Place Names to get back on. There is a book, too, Bemidji might have that that the online database follows. I forget what kind of quandary using "that that" is linguistically but I think my prof would have written "recast" in red...I am admiring all the work you are doing. Grace

Hi Maureen, Thank you so much for the information you are publishing. As a fellow genealogist, I really appreciate the biographical information.

I originally wondered if you were related to William? I am researching his family and was amazed to find this record. It states at the bottom that his mother's maiden name was Anderson. That's my family.

If I have more questions for Beltrami County can I send them your way? Let me know and I'll give you my private email.

I'm also looking for a Genealogist / Historian who can help me out with some land records an plat research in Marshall County. Do you know of anyone up that way?

Thanks, Roger Anderson
