RE: Saint Bernard's Catholic Cemetery, Watertown
Why don't you go ahead and add the memorials and photo requests. We'll be there on Saturday.

RE: Question re: maiden name edit
Thank you for catching this. Please disregard my edit. In reading the obituaries for 2 of the daughters, I see that the parents listed may be incorrect. In the obituary, the father is listed as George (the Find A Grave father is John). One of the obituaries states they were orphaned and raised by an aunt and uncle. I will see if I can find more information on this family.

RE: Zion Lutheran Cemetery, Buffalo, MN
Thank you for your kind words of encouragement! I enjoy so much volunteering for Find A Grave. As a retiree, it gives me something to do and I feel satisfaction knowing it helps others find those elusive relatives!

God Bless and thank you for all you do also!

RE: Add same photo to their daughter's memorial

Thanks for the advice. I added the photo for Marion. It is possible that whoever transcribed the photo didn't add Marion because there was no death date and they thought she might still be alive. I don't see any other Marion Meyer's listed in the cemetery so I don't think there is a duplicate.

it appears that you have John Writt #92192301, and John Writt #92192348, both died Oct 15, 1950, buried in Door Co., WI these seem to be the same person...I wanted to do some linking to this John Writt. Thanks. MPG

Korinek's, Hartel's, Kirk's, etc.
I'm so sorry to hear that you are in the midst of chemo treatments. I wish the best for you!

I will continue to work on the Hartels, Korineks, Kirk's, etc. etc. But I
live in Fond du Lac County & can only rely upon the internet for research. At this point I don't want to take on the memorials -- but thanks for the offer.

Just as a parting note, the reason I figured Jakob Marit was John Merriet had to do with the 1905 Casco, Kewaunee County Wisconsin Census. It appears to be the closest (and only) match. I am wondering if he was eldest son of Mary Marritt and an unknown father?

And I have now (finally) realized that some "disappearances" after the 1870 census must have been a result of the Peshtigo Fire -- I hadn't put 2 and 2 together concerning the affected area, which included Door & Kewaunee Counties. (Even Bert Hartel's obituary detailing his mother's death in the "big fire" hadn't tipped me off to the Peshtigo Fire.) Perhaps the fire took John & Wensel Kirk's lives?

Best regards!
Mary TS

RE: Family of Mrs. Nettie Hartel
Thank-you so much for the time and effort you've put into researching the Hartel's and Kirk's. I look forward to whatever else you are able to find out about these families. I may have some more queries for you in the future -- I hope you won't mind!

Deleting erroneous photos
Thanks for the info on deleting photos. I thought the manager could delete photos, too.

Ole & Mathilda Larson Memorial
Thank you for the obituaries that you added to the memorials. I didn't know any details of the circumstances of their deaths. Fascinating stuff! Thanks again - so much.

RE: Welcome to Find A Grave
I am sorry for the mistakes on the photos. I'm 75 years old and not really good enough to be changing these photos. You have my permission to put them in the proper place. I have more pictures to add (I stopped when I realized I was doing it wrong)
Can you explain it better to me. I also have pictures from another cemetery on Door County.

Thank you for your website. I have used it often and really want to help.

RE: Oak Hill Cemetery, Watertown
I'm sorry for the delay in responding to this message. I have not logged in to check my account to even know I had any. In response to your question I'm not sure what it would entail by me taking over these memorials. I have no relationship with this family. I only know of the family in relationship to the Octagon House in Watertown,Wi. I had seen the family headstones and knew photos were not included in Find a Grave so wanted to honor them by adding them to this site.

Transfer of memorials
Thanks for your message. I would be happy to be responsible for the memorials on your list. I'm fairly new at this, and I'm not sure what is involved. If you could give me a little more information about what is expected, I'd have a better idea of whether I'm qualified to do it.

Thank you for all the work you've done to bring my ancestors to me. It's very exciting stuff!

You are most welcome...since I was moving my data over, I decided to do a bit of research and by using various censuses, I was able to hook it all up. This was an example of how using "Mother" or "Father" can make a person disappear.
Some of the site contributors are in for it only for the "numbers", are not genealogists and do no additional research. Yes, it does take time, but speaking for myself, I learn so much as well as having a connection with the person I am adding. If you need some Cleveland area work done, let me know. Kathy

I have deleted my entry for Ernest and added my data for edit to the other site. Thank you so very much for letting me know. Ernest's parents are buried with him under "Mother" 8794689 (Elisabeth Lehman) and "Father" 8794685 (John) and I have put in the edits for the proper naming and relationships between them and Ernest. I believe the father's full name is Johann August Frederick, but I cannot prove it and John's parents may have been Charles & Amelia/Emmeline..??
