I would do photos for local area but have been pre-empted so many times by other, local F.A.G. members, I've given up. I don't plan to do whole cemeteries although I will help with any Civil War Vet gravesites and with further research for same within Thurston, Grays Harbor, Lewis, Pierce and Mason counties in Washington State, possibly more.
All my sites are friends or relatives. If you want a site transferred, you must have a closer relationship than mine. Those will be done joyfully.
I truly appreciate all the help given me by those contributors I've contacted. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'm very excited for you both to connect.

Best regards.

Clifford Mercer
Hi Hal, Cliff Mercer was married to my Aunt Irene Mannion Mercer Bailey who passed a while ago (Irene was my father's sister). His daughter, Crissy, died a couple years ago and left no descendants. His daughter Marilyn is living outside of Sacramento - she has children/grandchildren and I would imagine they would love mementos. I am not in touch as much with Marilyn as I am other cousins. Let me see if she is okay with me giving you her email so that you can get in touch with her. Thanks so much for contacting me!

RE: transter
I have no problem transferring, however I do not transfer from my comments. In order for me to transfer any memorial to you, please go into each person you want transferred, go to the edit tab at the top, select suggest any other changes or corrections, in the box please tell me why you would like them transferred to you and please include your find a grave number which is behind your name on your main page. I have had too many error from people asking for transfers from my comments.

Alice Mabel Bellerud
Alice Bellerud was my great grandmother, she died a few days after giving birth to my Grandmother. My Grandmother was a twin, and her twin also died after the birth. I was very happy to see a picture of my Great Grandmother, and then on Haaken's page there is a picture of my grandmother, she is wearing glasses. I would like to let you know that we just had a birthday party for my Grandmother yesterday, she is 93! It's really cool to find out more about this side of my family, and to know that my Grandmother was named after her mother she never met, my grandmother in Mabel Alice, and her mother was Alice Mabel. I was wondering where did you get the pictures? I also wondered if you had any more. Thanks

RE: Craig Venaas
Hello Hal, My uncle Jerry Venaas is Craig's nephew. My uncle is related by marriage and I do family history and have included his side as I am a family historian. However I know there are other Venaas members that are doing his family tree as well.

RE: Even Bakke
Thank you Hal. I would like to go to email on this. I was not aware of the son until today.

I'll be happy to share anything I find on the Bakke family. We have just started and I am not sure we have much on the Bakke family yet. It sounds like you are further along than I am.

In our case, Tedesco (my married name) is Italian. It is the Italian word for German.

Even Bakke
I recently found your posting for Even Bakke. Even was the great uncle of my mother-in-law, Charlotte Sollin Tedesco. Charlotte did not know Even (she was born over 20 years after he died). But she has very fond memories of his sister Emma, her grand-mother.
At 86 and having lost all her own sisters, finding family information has brought up wonderful memories of the people she loved and sparked many conversations about family.
I want to thank you for what you do. You inspired me to join Find A Grave and offer my services to others.
