Memorial 127847046
Hello, Susann! Thank you for your recent edit for Otto Gessner, suggesting his name should be spelled Geßner. I understand the rules for use of the "ß" and also that Dr. Geßner did spell his name this way. However, I'm unsure about whether to use the "ß" on Find a Grave. I don't find many memorials where it has been used and fear that most people looking up names would use "ss" instead of "ß." (I think most non-speakers of German don't even know how to make an "ß" on their computers.) Are my fears unreasonable? Do you know whether or not Find a Grave has taken a position on the use of this special letter? I am quite willing to accept your edit but wanted you to know of my concerns. What do you think?
Thanks again!

Thank you Lutetia
I would like to thank you sincerely, Lutetia, for spending so much time entering memorials. I found some of my "ancient" matriarchs and patriarchs entered by you for which I am very grateful. You bring so much closure to people around the world. I also think your grasp of English is excellent. In my lineages (to name a few) there is German, English, Italian, French, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and so it goes on. I know one German song, a few words of Swedish, a few more of Italian and still expanding my native English language :). When I met my Italian cousins, I found that I had learnt a different Italian dialect to that of my family. Interesting!
Thank you so much again and every blessing to you for your labour of love.

You have been accused of antisemitism. Is it true that you dislike the Jews?

Question about...

this grave has a placard which gives different birth and death locations than are on the record. Do you happen to remember why the record locations are as they are? Or do you have a way to know which locations are accurate?
Thank you.

I just noticed an incorrect burial place. The correct burial is: Eglise Saint-Jean-de Malte in Aix-en-Provence. I took the two photos used in October, 2014 and just now noticed the place error and incorrect church name. Please change. Thank you very much.

Julius Pisarowitz
Hello again,

Thank you for posting my Grt Grt grandfathers memorial. We've been looking for a long time as to where he was buried. After using the link you sent me, I tried Ostfriedhof in Cz Rep, without success. In a letter from his son, he wrote father was buried in Konigsaal, no success there, either. I just tried Zbraslav, and you know the rest! Would you please transfer management to me? Much appreciated.

Czech translation to English
Is it possible that someone could translate the plaque on the picture of the entrance to the Vysehradsky Cemetery in Prague, CZ?

I have to correct what I wrote: She was in the Elisabetherinech in Slup, near Vysenrad.

Marie Angelica Pisarowitz
I did look at the memorial on her which is all wrong. Someone else created it, took the photo I had on Ancestry, spelled her name incorrectly. I've asked him to remove it as I created a memorial with her name spelled correctly and have linked her with other family members.

You've been such a great help, thank you.

Marie Angelica Pisarowitz
Oh, thank you so much. I tried finding an obit on her with no luck. yes, she was in the Elizabetherin Home near the Vyesrad, as stated in an 1896 letter from her oldest son, Julius to his brother, Heinrich, in Maryland, USA.

You are good! Of course, I cannot read German, so I never would have found these articles.

I can't thank you enough for your searches.

May I ask where you got the obituary for her? She is my great grand aunt and I got the obituary from a genealogist, for which I paid.

See also, memorial 156487777 for: Archambaud VIII "le Grand" de Dampierre, de Bourbon (a brother of, Guillaume II de Dampierre - a 26th-Great-Grand-Father of my son - b.1998).
While reviewing that, check-out the new "necropole" (cemetery) that I created today ... "L'abbaye Notre-Dame de Bellaigue". It dates from the 10th-century. I suspect that there are many ancient burials (entombments) which took place therein, of the: "de Dampierre" & the "de Bourbon" lineages. Link:

P.S. I plan to call the Monastery, to speak with one of the monks (I hope they have a historian)... I speak fluent French. Thank you for your many wonderful contributions here.

Josph Polovsky
Thank you for your mail, I duly removed my entry. Sorry for the ´double´ - the system, despite all its virtues, does not facilitate to control doubling. Especially as the criteria for accepting persons as ´famous´ are opaque.
I have permitted myself to take over three pictures. I suggest to put them into order, starting with the portrait of Mr Polovsky. And may I suggest to add some elements to his biography, eg he was a convinced Chicagoan :-) .
I got on Mr Polovsky by chance reading about the 1945 Torgau events and learning that the first meeting between US and Soviet tropps was in fact at Strehlau. For such a world famous event an interesting precision. Would it not be adequate to describe that ?
I would have liked to do that later on "my" own entry but as told before I duly deleted it. Nevertheless, I could draft a text about the Torgau complex whcih you might wish to copy and paste ?
