Bio and Links
Bio Photo My brother, who is doing a super fantastic job on our family tree, is the one that got me started on Find A Grave.

At first I just wanted to do my late Classmates as a way to (in my mind) immortalize them. Then I got started with the people I knew. I believe it has become addictive. Now when I go to search for a headstone, I wind up doing the whole cemetery.

I grew up in Ivanhoe, a small town in Southwest Minnesota, but currently reside in the Twin Cities. However, I make several trips back to Ivanhoe & the area every summer. (Would never miss out on "Polish Days" even if I am a German.)
