Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching family history for over 10 years and have received help from many people and sources :) Ancestry is a mystery to be solved with an exciting journey.

Graveyards are places of beauty, the landscape, history and headstones. A place for all that were loved and now are gone. Rest in Peace!

I would like to give back, if you need a grave photo let me know.

There are so many cemeteries close by that I will be visiting! May you find one of your family members in a future entry.

I give permission for use of any photos that I upload to be used by interested researchers.

Incorrect date of death
FYI, you listed the date of death for Bertram Getsug, my father, as 1954. That's the wrong date, but understandably so, since the engraved text in his monument is partially obstructed by flowers in the photograph that's shown. Please note that he died on August 17, 1984. I have submitted an edit to correct that information.

Thank you,
Ray Getsug,
President, Chesed Shel Emes Society of St. Paul

RE: Richard John Salo and Ellen Hazel
Thanks! Do you happen to know where they were from in Finland? I'd like to know more about their parents and grandparents and so on, and the records in Finland are set up to search by location.

Richard John Salo and Ellen Hazel
You posted a picture of the grave of Richard John Salo and his baby daughter. Can you tell me more about Richard's parents, Charles and Hannah. Where were they born? How do you know this family? Was Hannah's last name Mattson or Mattison?

Two Fritzes or One
You have two memorials for Fritzes b.1822 d.1892 buried at Woodbury Methodist. One is Johann K #76388980. The second is Carl #79589409. I encountered these when I found an index for Johann K on while researching Johann Karl Christian Fritze and found it strange that he went by Charles in the census but would be buried as Johann. When I searched Charles, I found Carl's son Charles which has a link to Carl's memorial. I have to ask, are the graves for Johann and Carl the same grave and there are just two memorials, or are they different graves?

RE: Walter Sanborn
Thanks for the info. Yes I am related to the Sanborns through the marriage of my great grand aunt Caroline Busse to Conrad Gotzian. The Sanborns, Schurmeiers, Robbins, Gotzians, Driscolls and Hills all were the movers and shakers of St. Paul at the time, and there was a lot of intermarriage between the offspring.

New and improved memorial # for Ernest Hippauf's Mother
OOPs I accidently had made a duplicate of Henrietta's memorial so here is the correct memorial number for her in case you wish to add her as she is Ernest Hippauf's Mother. Her number: 115238049
Sorry for the mixup :0)
