Greetings! I am a family history enthusiast as well as a librarian. I love helping people find their roots and I enjoy wandering through the local cemeteries to photograph and decipher the stones. I want to memorialize as many headstones as I possibly can, especially the sandstone ones that are eroding quickly - to save them for the generations to come. The photos I post are for open for anyone to use and I welcome anyone to use them for their family histories. I am always willing to transfer memorials to family members.

I have copies of the cemetery indexes for Stearns, Benton and Sherburne Counties that I am updating as I go. These indexes are great tools for matching against cemetery records to verify names, death dates, etc. Feel free to email me with any questions about people buried in these counties.

My immediate family names include: Warneke, Notch, Hoeschen, Korte, Forcier, Althaus, Hohle, Reimer and Degree (Degré)
