Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching family genealogy for many years and also upload local cemetery registers for the cemeteries in our county.

I have no familial connection to most of the people I upload, so feel free to request transfers of your relatives. I only ask that you let me know how you're related to a family. Or if you have a decent reason, I'm good with that, too. If you'll take good care of a memorial, I have no problem transferring if you're not related.

While I have many memorials, I am not a numbers person. I would rather have family members maintain memorials.

I make updates very quickly, and usually do not reply back unless I have a question. I frequently will use the email provided in the edit to respond to a question. If your correction has not been made, please check to see if I've emailed, as I normally don't make the updates if I do not have the question answered.

**Please use the Edit feature on memorials over requesting changes in messages or sending emails. That really is the easiest and most efficient way to accomplish updates. Thanks!**

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

****If you volunteer on this website and decide you no longer want to maintain memorials, please transfer your records to someone who has an active account and are willing to take over management of the memorials. I am one of many willing to take over records. This really will help reduce duplicates.

Right now, you can email if you have someone who has accepted stewardship over the memorials you added. Please send in their member number with your email. Feel free to contact me should you wish that someone maintain the memorials you have created. Thanks!*****

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall
On gentle hinges it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call
Along the lintel are green leaves
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill
There is nothing to trouble any heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door.
In an old wall.

possible transfers
If you want to transfer, these are also family:


I don't need them, no info to add at this time, but if you want to transfer you can. No problem if you don't want to.

Simon Myhre at Scandinavia 95662409
Simon is a duplicate and not buried there, but I like the biographical info (and the Scandinavia ties) so I think we should keep this memorial. Maybe add a link to his other memorial?

Or contact the other contributor and have them add the info to the bio? Here is where it gets tricky -- there are 2 other memorials for him. # 27754872 (see original name) and 118702071. I don't know how original name works on Find A Grave. When I search for Simon Myhre, it does not bring up 27754872. I stumbled across that one when doing a little research on him.

The death date on this entry says 1972 but the tombstone clearly shows 1995. The SS Death Index confirms the 1995 date.

RE: Danforth's
I'm interested in the Danforth's, Cline's, Newby's and Dahms' of Plover, Portage county and Steven's Point. I'm coming up there soon with my uncle and cousin to do my own research but anything you can offer in the mean time would be a great help. Thank you, JoAnn

I was researching my family and noticed you had a few of my great/ great great grandparents names on your list, are we related? My Mother is Jeanette Cline, daughter of Myrna Danforth, daughter of William Danforth and Carrie Ann Newby.

RE: Norma Johnson
I would do that too and I think it fits in this situation. I sent you an edit for the person in my tree. She never married and took her adoptive parents last name. So searching by name at death, one will find her, and having her linked to her birth parents, one will find her also. Maybe I would add her birth name in the maiden name field in this case as someone might search for her using her birth name.

Sometimes I wonder if some adoptees have and/or want no association with their birth families. Even though they are no longer alive, it seems a disservice to link them to birth families if they don't want the association. But I guess descendants can contact the contributor if that would be the case.

And when children are adopted young, it seems like the adoptive parents don't "get the credit" even though they are often listed as parents in obituaries, etc. with no mention of birth parents. I almost feel like I am taking away from them somehow. That's why I had to mull this over, the right thing to do just doesn't always "feel" right.
