Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in Find A Grave began while researching my family history.

After I discovered or created memorials for my ancestors and extended family members, I began adding those who hadn't yet been memorialized.

The past few years my focus has been on taking headstone pictures. I am currently editing/adding photos I took in 2015.

Like you, I am a volunteer. I participate in this labor of love because I believe it's an important part of our history.

I will gladly update any memorial in my care with a sourced request. Simply share a few details about how you know something to be true when you submit an edit (using the edit tabs please).

Inside voices and good manners are very much appreciated.

St. Fridolin Cemetery Contact?
Hi Laura: My daughter Brooke Thompson is buried in St. Fridolin cemetery in Champlin, Minnesota, and has been there since her murder in 2002. I'm trying to find the contact person's number or caretaker's number of the cemetery because I have a question about the extra 3 plots I bought when she died, but I can't find a phone number anywhere on the internet. I have also called the City of Champlin & they don't have a contact number either. So then I tried several funeral homes & churches in the area, but I'm not having any luck. Can you help me please? I don't know where else to look, so I would appreciate any help you can give me. If you find it, please send me an email: Thank you in advance!!! Lori

RE: Memorial# 140124001
THANK YOU!!! I contacted Find A Grave and asked that the memorials be merged so we don't lose the photos or the links and obit. Here's hoping! You are very kind :) Blessings~

Memorial# 140124001
Greetings! In Dec 2014 I made him a memorial and included his lengthy obit; however, a place of burial was not given. In fact, it mentions 'memorial' which led us to believe he was cremated. I have been notified that he was buried and you have the memorial and a photo. Would you be agreeable to moving the photo to my original page and then deleting yours? Many thanks for your help! Blessings~ Ann

RE: Wasyl Kramarczuk Find A Grave Memorial# 176694329
Hi Laura,

I am not related to the family at all. I just maintain a MN history group on Facebook. I was interested in the learning more about Kramarczuk's in Minneapolis so I started with the company website:

Ironically, I found the information provided on the headstone may not be accurate. Everything on Ancestry suggests Wasyl was born in 1906 and not in 1911.

Name: Wasyl Kramarczuk
SSN: 470-32-8595
Last Residence:
55421 Minneapolis, Anoka, Minnesota, USA
BORN: 25 May 1906
Died: 3 Oct 1991
State (Year) SSN issued: Minnesota (Before 1951)

RE: Harvey and Charlotte Pitkin
I think the source was the database from Graceland cemetery which is online.
