Memorial# 107098096
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 ?

Would it be possble to use photo on # 97176948 in my family tree?

Familie von Wendt in Hannover
Hi Lutetia,

very interesting what you sent me via edit, thank you! I've now done some research on this too and am convinced that the birth date 1748 given for their daughter Charlotte Wilhelmine or Wilhelmine Charlotte by a researcher at this cemetery is wrong, and it's gone from the stone. I found a source where she and August Ulrich von Hardenberg married in 1743, in an old book about the Hardenbergs, so she was born maybe around 1718.

Thanks for your help!

Best regards, Bob

RE: Charles Heymann
thank you for the transfer - and for doing the work in the first place!

one of Charles' nieces is still alive and knew where he had died; thanks to your work we were able to confirm it and to know where he lies. Much, much appreciated.

best wishes

Hallo Lutetia,

danke für die Hilfe - wenn ich das nächste Mal zu dem Schloss komme, dann versuche ich bessere Fotos zu machen. :-)

I’ve been using the new process of loading photos and having others transcribe, maybe someday I’ll get caught up on the back log. Umlauts and things like that are not something English speaking people are familiar with so I am glad you sent the SAC’s with corrections. I had planned to go back and correct but you save me the trouble, THANKS. Now all I have to do is get the other 4,000K photos in Wiesbaden Süd loaded.

Leon V de Lusignan 1342-1393
Thank you for your wonderful photography. You took excellent photos. I really appreciate your time and effort.
I do have a question. The plaque near his tomb says "V" and on the internet it has him as the "VI." Do you know why the difference?
Thank you,
Best regards,

Emmy Thomass
Thanks for the tip! I wasn't sure if her first name was Romy or Emmy, but I guess from that period it's pretty likely to be Emmy. Next time I'm there I'll take a better look.

Thanks again, take care, Bob

Hi. Yeah. I am afraid that is one I had to guess on. My mother told me he was buried in Paris at Pere Lachaise but was unsure. He is definitely not in New Orleans nor is his wife. They are not in St. Louis #3 with his daughters or in Metairie with his son and son's descendants.

Also, his son, Jules died in Paris. His wife brought his body back and he was buried in St. Louis 3. Son Jules later had the big tomb in Metairie built and moved his father's body there, so there is a trend.

Thank you
Dear Lutetia, I want to thank you for the time and effort you have spent to post Memorials on the findagrave website. Having posted some Memorials, I know that it takes time not to just post the information on a deceased person, but it takes more time to gather the information. Thanks to you, I have found many ancestors who were not to be found any place else. Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful 2015. R. Dale Woosley, Mount Vernon, Illinois, USA

...uber Konrad II
Hallo Lutetia,

I read today with great interest your history of Konrad II and noticed a slight typo near the end of your narrative (I think). In it you said, "The funeral procession passed through Cologne, Worms, Mainz and Worms." Did you mean to say Worms twice? Maybe they circled back to Worms and I am wrong?

Anyway, it was a fine job you did ... and even though I was born in nearby Landstuhl, Rheinland-Pfalz, I don't think I am related to Konrad - but I am happy to be at least half German.

Frohe Weihnachten.

Thank you a bunch for the mini-German lesson. I wish I had it sooner. Believe it or not, there are a good number of German markers in mid-America.

Hallo Lutetia!

Vielen Dank nochmal für die Aufarbeitung.

Leider konnte ich noch keine Informationen darüber finden, dass mein Großvater vom Heimaturlaub nicht zum Dienst zurückkehren wollte. Gibt es hierüber Unterlagen? Wo haben Sie diese Information erhalten? Anfragen bei der WASt haben mir bisher nicht weitergeholfen.

Gibt es eine Institution bei der Stadtverwaltung Leipzig die mir weiterhelfen kann?

Viele Grüße

Andre Lewandowski

RE: gekipptes photo / Transkriptionen
> Irgendwann werd ich von so einem mal noch erschlagen
Hmm, ich glaube, da nimmst Du 'Find a Grave' etwas zu wörtlich .-)

Das Beta-System verwende ich auch nur für meine Aufnahmen, bei Gräbern mit mehreren Namen/Photos ist es eine spürbare Erleichterung. Die Daten erfasse ich 'normal', die Bilder werden dann 'transkribiert'.

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.
