RE: Richmond A New York 1870
I thought you knew the family and that was why you sent the edit. The 'Ireland' is because they came from Ireland, not the surname. I did look around and will check some more next time too.

Richmond A New York 1870
Hi Lutetia
Do you know little Richmond's SURNAME?
His parents were Richmond and Elizabeth.
I added the 1870 year date you suggested.

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.

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 !

Kendall Mellem
Friedrich Wilhelm von Braunschweig-Wolfenb
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!
