Help
Hi Lutetia,

I was wondering what part of Germany you are in? I ask because I am stuck and am wondering if you do research for people or know someone that does?

My Reiter family came to the USA from Posen,Prussia,Germany about 1872 and as you probably know, all records for that part of Germany are now in Poland (if I recall). I'm wondering though, if people living in Germany still have access to records that used to be in Germany?

I appreciate any help! I would have emailed you but I do not see an email address for you.

Thanks soooo much,

Sal

Hi,

I was working on Charles of Valois and came across your memorial and the one maintained by the Find A Grave staff (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=21057) recorded in 2001. Anyway to merge the two records?

Regards, Mary

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,
Fred

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.

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.

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.
Yours,
Ava

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.

Respectfully,
Amanda

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.

Hi,
I'm currently researching Elizabeth of Vermandois and noticed that you list her as being buried in the cathedral at Arras, I was wondering where you found the information for this.

RE: Information on the burial of Fritz Ballin
Do I call you Susann or Lutetia?
It is so nice to be able to communicate with you as you are living in that part of the world where my family has ancestry. I would not be surprised if you find Ballins, and please do collect any pics of stones that you find for them. I expect they would all be in Jewish cemeteries, but I don't know that for sure. As for the Joskes, they were well known as they had a big factory in Leipzig that was taken from them by the Nazis, and whoever was alive was supposedly deported away from there. I know that the Joske store has been rededicated in recent years.
I hope to hear from you again.
All the best.
Yours,
Ava

RE: Information on the burial of Fritz Ballin
Thank you so much, Lutetia. Also, have you ever seen any stones for the Joske family of Leipzig. Our great uncle Alfred Ballin was married to Edith Joske. She was from Leipzig and they lived there until their divorce. Their daughter Rita (a great grandmother now) lives in England.

Thank you so much fo your message. And please thank Frank for me also. I really appreciate it if you would keep your eyes open as you go through these cemeteries. It means a lot to me.
I had hoped to get over to Germany myself some day but as I get older, I feel it is a dream that may not be fulfilled. If there is any particular info you need, please feel free to message me. Again, a great big Thank You.

Hallo luthetia, ich habe zufällig letzte Woche auf Montmartre auch das Grab von Konstanze von Sachsen Coburg Gotha photographiert und mich beim durchsehen der Bilder gefragt, warum die da beerdigt ist. Vielleicht hilft dir bei deinen Recherchen ja der Name Konstanze Geiger weiter. Sie war als Komponistin nicht standesgemäß mit (ich glaube) Engelbert von Sachsen Coburg verheiratet. Beide waren Freunde von Johann Strauss. Siehe auch Wikipedia unter Engelbert zu Sachsen Coburg Gotha.
Ich fand es interessant, dass du an dem gleichen Grabmal hängen geblieben bist :-)
LG
