RE: Frances and Henry Fassnacht memorials
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.

RE: Dachau memorial
Hi Bob,

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,

Dachau memorial
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.

Thank you so much for getting us a photo of Ted's grave. I know the lady who was his fiancée and she will be very glad to have this picture.

RE: Olof Andersson, Karlstad
I fixed the photo on that grave in 2012, from a request by user ditdit. I do not know how you are related to Olof Andersson, but I today by regular email got a large amount of info concerning Olof and his family. But it's all in Swedish ... please send me a private message - use email shown at my Find A Grave bio /Olle K, Karlstad Sweden

Many thanks for the photographs.

This is indeed the correct stone. I've already sent an edit for his name, and I'll send edits for the date corrections immediately.

Many thanks Bob for tho pic of his grave,until now none of the family did not know his burial place. I was 14 years old when a friend of mine pointed out a photo of his funeral in Berlin, remember it, 6 Soldiers carried his coffin. Was either the Lomdon Illustrated or Picture Post,+Again many thanks, John

Hi BobB,

Find A Grave may be automatically transferring those memorials when they get edits on them, then. Which is fine, that at least makes some kind of sense. Of course they may transfer some of them to people who don't want to maintain the memorials, but if that is the case they can always transfer them back to find a grave.

Hi BobB,

I assume you were able to email find a grave directly and get them to transfer the memorial to you, since the Tropico Gravers account is disabled and only find a grave can make transfers from it.

Harry Hintze
His grave is unmarked and is the one to the right of the headstone in the photo. James

Glad I was able to help. I appreciate it when others have helped me out. I have been called worse, so don't worry about it. Good luck with your research.

I'm glad that I was able to be of some help. I did see that Walter is also there.

I look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Raymond Godfrey Johnson
The burial record indicated that a Thomas H. Johnson, Jr. had been buried in the same plot, but was re-interred to his father's plot. They are buried in this same cemetery, if you didn't know.

While there are photos posted, mine are much clearer and show all of the names (Thomas Sr., Nora, Thomas Jr., Holly C., and Thomas D.). if you would like copies of all of the photos I took of the two plots, contact me through my email which is shown in my bio.

RE: Raymond Godfrey Johnson
I often find that when I request a photo that it leads to others in the plot that I was unaware of. This is why I ask for a photo of the plot as well. I supply plot photos in addition to an individual marker.

RE: Raymond Godfrey Johnson

I have added the photos to her memorial page and put the plot information in the edits.

When I was in the office, I was told the record showed her last name as Cravens which didn't make sense at the time. After looking at her bio, I now understand.

I see that Vernon is buried at the same cemetery. Do you want the photo of his grave marker?

I have claimed your photo request for Raymond. I will add the photos tomorrow. His wife (1902-1993)is there. If you create a memorial page for her, I will add photos for her as well.

Isaac W. Sturtevant
Thank you for the information on Isaac. Although I visited the cemetery, I used the information from Anne N. Sturtevant's survey of the cemetery which I found in a red notebook in the Halifax Town Clerk's Office, "Sturtevant Cemetery Pond" AKA Monponsett Pond - East Cemetery. I've updated his information. The Town of Halifax Death Records listed his parents, so I linked him to them; they are buried in the same cemetery.
