|Donald Butchers||Photo of grave|
My wife and I are making a pilgrimage to our daughters grave later this year and it was a wonderful surprise to see the photos and information on the Find a Grave website. You have made us both very happy, thank you.

I have just found this photo and would like to thank you. I am starting to look into our family history and this grave belongs to my brother who died before I was born. He only lived for a day. I was having difficulty tracing his grave and your picture has helped. The name is incorrect. It is Derek Aitken. Thanks to your help I hope to be able to look into getting the records amended. Regards Maggie

How do I find the name of a relative that I believe died at the camp? Is there a web site with all names listed?

Thanks for the photo of Douglas, Kate, and Belle's grave. If you could add it to Kate and Belle's memorials that would be great:)

Thank you for posting a photo of Michael Cox's headstone. It's been 43 years and would have been his birthday today and I will hopefully get to see it in person in 3 weeks. Many thanks Tammy

Hello, Bob B, thank you for the photo of my great grandmother, Isabelle McKinnon MacMullen.
Headstone reads born 1875...I believe she was born in 1872. However, the children also listed on her headstone are the names of her children, who died very young. Only months old.
are you a relative of Isabelle?
thank you, again!

|PIPPA DANNATT||Callum Philip Michael Dannatt grave|
Thank you so much for the entry for my son. I found it through the Ancestry site when I was filling in my family tree and added Callum.
Please could I have copies of the photos you added as my new Mac seems to be a mystery to me and I dont know how to download from chrome.
Seeing his grave means the world as I have not been able to visit him in this time. He was stillborn and my kids and I miss him so much. Being able to look at his entry means so much. Thank you- and thank you for the flowers on his entry

Thank you so much for the picture of Frances' Grave. Frances and her sister Margaret were living in Dortmund on a British Air base in 1957, with their parents, my paternal grandparents and their brother Michael (my father) who was a small baby. Unfortunately they were both killed on 19/04/57.
My Dad has never been told the truth about exactly what happened that day, and has never known his Mother, his father died young too and so these memories are very precious to us. Thank you so much for your kind assistance, I will also put in a request for a picture of Margaret's grave too, which I hope is next to Frances, I am quite surprised they weren't buried together.
Once again, many, many thanks.

|Glenn Gustafson||Andrew L. Axelson picture caption|
Selden Yard Cemetery: Andrew Ludwig Axelson is an uncle to my grandfather (FarFar). The caption under the tombstone picture states: "Andrew L. Axelson and his mother-in-law Magdalena Peterson". Can you put me in touch with someone with knowledge of this relationship? I have a lot of genealogy compiled on the Axelson family from Sweden and have been searching for Anders. Tks

|J B||RE: re: Daniel Fiske Jr family in Grafton|
You're very welcome for the photo. And thank you for posting a photo request, I would not likely have ever known the memorials had been deleted. Since you knew the family, if you have any bio info for Dan's parents or wife I would be happy to add it (especially the not vital record stuff like "hosted great beach cookouts"). -Judi

|J B||re: Daniel Fiske Jr family in Grafton|
Per your photo request I posted a photo of Daniel Jr's gravestone. Troubling to me was I had created memorials for ALL four Fiskes in the plot and posted their plot & stone photos--Dan Sr. & wife Annie, Dan Jr. and wife Elizabeth--and had transferred all but Elizabeth per a "family member" transfer request and today (because of your photo request) found they had been deleted. I spent months photographing the older sections of that cemetery and creating memorials. :(
I have re-created memorials for the parents of Daniel Jr. and re-posted photos and I will send you links to them via his edit tab. Sincerely, Judi

Thank you for the picture, but my great Uncle did not perish at Dachau. He had been moved to Buchenwald and then was somehow pulled out by the US Red Cross. He died in Portland, Oregon on April 14, 1955. He was buried at Zentralfriedhoff, Vienna, Austria with his wife Amalia and daughter Margarethe.
Added by Bobbi Rutherford on Jun 19, 2016 6:17 PM
you have a photo request for Maria Falk, and as you said for her husband, there aint no such grave. her name was Persdotter not Persson, and it look like they have one more son Karl born 1885. dead 1960, grave until 2010 - so that might be there. (1,5 hour from me). (coincident I have the same lastname)

Thanks for your kind words, Bob. If they are family and you'd like me to transfer them to you, I'm happy to do so.

|NB||RE: Dachau memorial|
Thanks for your reply. Thanks also for the photos which you took.
The plus-side of the approach is that I found out that my relative had been in Dachau, a fact which I hadnt known previously which has now opened up new areas of research. So, whilst, it is miseleading to indicate that all the prisoners died there, there was a helpful spin-off for me.
Nevertheless, clarification on the find-a-grave site is needed and I will contact the International Wargraves Photography Project, as suggested. The IWPP Custodial Account has messaging disabled and no email address available, so I will use the first one.
Thanks and regards,

I have a question recording the Dachau memorial site. I have found a record listed for a relative. I am still investigating but I'm not sure whether he died there as the records showed he was liberated.
Can you tell me the source for the names of the people on the find-a-grave site for this memorial please ? Or give me a contact name to follow up. I also saw a message along the same lines from Kaz from March of this year, so I think it would be useful if the people who maintain the find-a-grave site could indicate on the page the source. Whilst many did die at Dachau, not all did and it can be misleading and potentially distressing to record all of them as having died there.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions on this.

I Would just like to say thank to you for adding my Dad's Headstone Photo.
I do have a few old photo's of his headstone taken back in the 60's when my Uncle visited but I could never read what the inscription said at the bottom but now I can. I must say my heart skipped a beat to see I was included not in name but as daughter.
