Josef Deserta

I entered his name in Google inside quotation marks and it pulled up a book on Google's book page but it was in German. There was some sort of information on him on one of the pages. There was also another site which I just now looked at of people killed by being beheaded. There was a picture of him.

You are welcome BobP, glad to help with a photo request for you. I processed some F-A-G edits this weekend and realized one of them is on a HOWES memorial that you manage (check your 'Edit' tab). Small world; what a coincidence! Thanks, hope to cross paths again down the road....

RE: James Major obit
Hi Bob,

It can get tricky with records and gravestones, can't it? It's not uncommon for gravestones to have incorrect dates. Some stones were erected years after someone died so dates came from someone's memory or perhaps records incorrectly written or no longer legible. Below is the link to the newspaper account of James Major's death. The year of the newspaper is 1910 so I believe his death year is actually 1910 not 1912. The paper reports he was 80 which would make his birth year 1830.

Here is link to online death reference which shows death year as 1910 and approximates birth year as 1830.

Hope this helps. I like reading old obits to learn about someone's life especially so long ago.

RE: August Iffland grave photo
Hi Bob,
thank you for your kind message.
I think you are right with the dates in the first line. The first word is really hard to read even you are as close as possible at the grave.
The first word could be "Erneuert" = renewed. Iffland died 200 years ago but the brickwall is not original, part of it isn´t older than 10 years. So i think the plate says that the grave was renewed from time to time (and this just because it´s a honory grave). But it only shows the dates during the royal time in germany. I´m pretty sure it was renewed several times especially after the first and second world war.
But maybe the cemetery administration office can help with this. I will send them a mail with our question.
Greetings from Berlin! :-)

Kåre Olsson
Sophia Goransson Johnson
Hi, my name is Kåre Olsson, and I found this person and is wondering if I found the right one.
"My" Sophia has father Karl Gustaf Göransson and mother Carolina Holmgren.
Sophia is born in Allegany but went back to sweden about 1875. She came back to USA 1888 but I can´t find her until now (I hope)
So, is this "my" Sophia?

RE: Norma Werdelin grave photo
Hi bob,
I, too , have Swedish ancestry. I have only been able to go back one generation (1829) in Sweden before my great grandfather migrated to the U.S. His name was Simonsson and his mother 's was Nilsdotter. They were from the Malmo area.
I have taken about 500 photos at the Swedish cemetery in Portland and will be matching them up with find a grave memorials this winter. If there are others there that you need let me know.

RE: Virginia Wissinger grave photo
Hi Bob - I'm happy to transfer management of this record over to you for Christine Deak to allow you to include the information you suggested. I added this record for you & others for perspective on what I found while looking for Virginia Wissinger's grave - I have no other interest.

Interesting to see the photo of Ester. She was the half sister of my mother Anna Lisa. Wold be nice to know it we have some realtives in the USA? I know her daughter emigrated but since my mother and all her brothers and sisters are now dead there is no one to ask.

All the best / Bo

Memorial Sponsorings
Hi Bob,
I do not know what it means to sponsor a memorial or why you did it. Thank you. Please explain what it means.
I am excited that you got photos for some of my memorials in Hanover. Thanks so much. I have ancestors there, but I don't know where they are buried or even how to find out.
If you ever see the surnames Ballin or Hess (Hass?), please get photos, and if you don't like to make memorials, let me know and I will make them. In any case, let me know and I will put in photo requests so you can get credit.
I wish you all the best.

Thank you for adding the grave marker photo to the memorial for Sgt. George Douglas Lees. He is a relative through marriage to one of my relatives and I know his family will appreciate it. His brother Private Eli Arthur Lees was also a casualty of WWII.
