RE: gekipptes photo / Transkriptionen
> Nachdem ich es bearbeitet hatte war es eigentlich richtig herum. Sehr seltsam. >
Erklärlich, diese alten Steine sind oft recht locker .-)

Wie ich gesehen habe, hast Du Grabsteine von Roxheim transkribiert. Dabei haben sich Übertragungsfehler eingeschlichen, die ich 'korrigiert' habe. Das ist natürlich kein Vorwurf, sondern deckt sich nur mit meiner Erfahrung: Auch ich habe mich an Roxheim 'versucht' und feststellen müssen, dass die Bildauflösung im Transkriptionsfenster (für schwer lesbare Grabsteine) zu schwach ist. Das ist mir leider erst aufgefallen, nachdem ich mühsam einen Stein übertragen hatte, um dann im gespeicherten Eintrag zu sehen, wie relativ klar die Vorlage war .-(
Ich habe das Transcribieren zunächst ad acta gelegt, denn als Alternative sehe ich nur, das Bild zunächst auf den eigenen Rechner zu speichern und dann dort zu betrachten.

thank you for spotting our dupe; we had to ask to merge the two memorials as both have flowers and links.

Anna C Meyer Ehegattin Update
Diane Scott sent me this message.

Her last name according to the cemetery record was Ehegattin. Her maiden name was Meyer. Her brother Henry Meyer is in the same cemetery.
I never did find her husband. She was in the 1900 census living with her brother Henry and not married yet.

RE: Anna Ehegattin photo

Anna has two memorials; the original one with her maiden name, Ehegattin, and a duplicate with her married name, Meyer. I notified my friend, Diane Scott, the lady who created the original memorial. Hopefully she will remedy the situation.

My maternal grandfather's (Carl Schliemann) family immigrated from Germany. I recently found out that one side of his wife's (Lulu Irish Schliemann) family immigrated from Germany in the 1700s. The immigrant changed his name to Henry Pence in the US, and fought in the Revolutionary war. He and his German born wife had 19 children. The rest of Lulu's ancestors are from Great Britain, dating back as far as the 1300s. My dad's family is 100% Norwegian, but my Y-DNA has some interesting ancient ethnicity. Long story.

RE: Lutetia, made request to connect child and parents.
Hi, Lutetia, my mistake, it was Louis's father Jean who is buried in Paris. I corrected the entry, please connect !

Thank you for letting me know of the unintentional duplication. It's quite frustrating, because I always run a quite thorough search before creating a memorial. Occasionally, however, even when the name under which I search is exactly identical to that on a memorial, the original does not turn up. This happens to me only outside the US, even when sometimes I'm searching for a memorial I created myself! In any case, I am glad when errors or duplications are found! Thanks again so much!

Geoffrey Plantagenet

On Find A Grave Memorial# 8143822, for Geoffrey, in the first sentence, you have him as Geoffrey IV; I believe that should be V.

He is my 30th great grandfather, distant cousin!

RE: Indian Farm Cemetery - Albertine
I placed another photo with less grass at the edges and corrected Albertine's Surname to MASS. Hope this helps.

RE: Linking Jeanne & Marguerite
If you decline to link to the male parent, that's fine. Suit yourself, but if you read the Caption on Baldwin's Tower Photo - that was approved by FindAGrave you will see that this is where he was allegedly Interred. Its Hard to be more specific on something that happened 8 centuries ago, I feel He deserves to be memorialized anyway, Take care, gene

Last name MASS - was able to clear away some of the sod. Look at it now. And thanks for your interest in this stone.

RE: Friederika Lewerenz
Hello Susann,
Thank you for the kind reply. I did a bit on research on "Gattin" and I hope to not make this mistake again! I have an old, probably early 1800's, page of hand written German script that was in an old family Bible. Perhaps I will send it to you one day, I am afraid it is probably theological in nature and not really useful for family research. I have worked with German church records in a few archives, and they can be really difficult as apparently some parish clerks developed their own "short hand" to save time. A couple of years ago in the Rottenburg am Neckar archives my wife and I , along with the archivist and a professional German genealogist were all trying to decipher the family name for a bride from the late 1600's, with no luck at all!
Have a wonderful weekend,

Indian Farm Cemetery - Albertine
As it happens I'll be traveling from MD to WI next week and will be staying with family on "Indian Farm" - the cemetery is within a mile. After seeing the picture, I realized I should have cleared the grass away to get the whole inscription. I hope there will be time to get a better, more complete picture of this stone. I have no relations to anyone in this cemetery, just like providing updates and pictures for distant persons. Love this site as a great tool for us genealogists. Thanks for the feedback.

RE: Benjamin Gunnell #115679297
I am so sorry and didn't know it was called "plopping". I have removed him from any location but left him linked to his family which was my intent.

Henri Ballin gravesite
Hi Lutetia,
First of all, thank you so much for going to the cemetery and getting all those photos and the birthdates for me. That plot is the one that I got for Henri, but that doesn't mean it is correct. Thank you for looking. Maybe when you are out there looking for some other graves, you will happen upon his, too.
I wish you all the best.

No, I don't really know if he is buried there. I know he is buried overseas in the area but think I finally just chose a cemetery. I will look again at my notes. If you have someplace to check I would appreciate any help. I have gone to his memorial and placed a note that it may not be correct.

Hi Susann! How are you? I haven't heard from you in a long time. I hope all is well with you.

Anyway, thanks so much for your help on that tomb stone. I must of done this one past my bedtime. Nowhere do I see the name Leon or Marchéville. MORT still looks like MDRT. I imagine the rain has distorted the writing over the years. I changed it to MORT. My French doesn't exist, so a lot of these are very difficult. I actually stopped adding my photos because a lot of them are too difficult to read.

I still don't know the relationship of M. Louise Bareth. Is she a sister or wife to Maurice? Do you know? Thanks again for your help. Jayne

You have asked me to delete this memorial because it is a duplicate. Could you resend the link for the original, so that I can view it? The one you have provided is not working.

You have asked me to delete about seven memorials at this point; and while I am very much aware that find a grave has the right to call the shots on this, I disagree with their method of going about things.
The Plantegenet family are my ancestors, and it is important to me that accurate extra information be included in their memorials. We all know that historians very often disagree with dates and places of ancestors, especially in the first centuries After Death and Before Death. Even the names can be quite different, especially the monarchs - they have so many names. My entries have been well researched, and the sources documented. It feels awful to be so curtly told to delete material provided about my ancestors. The policy of find a grave to use the "no reply" message method is certainly one sided.

I am very much hoping that the administration will reconsider it's policy, and allow some leverage because some of the memorials on "famous people" are very scant.

Eleanor, Countess of Bar
Thank you for your concern that this is a duplicate. I have already discussed this with the author of this memorial, and tried to discuss with find a grave. The author said that once find a grave takes over the memorial, no changes can be made. It was also suggested that find a grave will merge the memorials.

Because this is a direct ancestor, I want all of the material that I have to be included in the memorial, regardless of where the burial took place.

I am appreciative of your concern, and I mean no disrespect. If you are communicating on behalf of find a grave, this would be a wonderful opportunity to discuss with them that famous memorial do not have a way in which information can be added, as can regular memorials.

Many thanks for your information on August Zang, he truly is an interesting guy. Since you left a flower for him I stopped by your bio and left many flowers on your memorials that otherwise had none, thank you again, have a great day :-)
