My contributions are in honor of those, who walked before us, no disrespect is intended whatsoever by my submissions to this website.

I NEED YOUR HELP: Check out the virtual cemetery on the right. Maybe you can help finding these folks' final resting places.

DasMachtDochNix1( a t )gmail( d o t )com

Born in Germany in the 60's and growing up in Berlin and Munich, I now live in Central New York. I started my own genealogy in the 70's, then did my High School and College thing in the 80's, and came to the US in the 90's. Now I am taking pictures for fun and business. Some of the photos I post are digitally enhanced, so the lettering on older grave markers is easier to read. The information on FINDAGRAVE is provided by thousands of volunteers. Please let's not forget we are all volunteers. I take exception with those volunteers who say their photos are copyrighted. Why take photos if you're not going to share them with everyone? My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. A credit to FINDAGRAVE would be nice. After all, they are just photos of grave markers, not the Mona Lisa!

If you find errors on any of my submitted items, please be so kind and let me know so I can correct those. It's important for all of us hobby-family-researchers and historians to remain accurate in the data we publish. Always glad to transfer memorials following the FaG's guidelines. Just send me a SAC: Click on the memorial's EDIT tab, then on "Suggest any other correction or addition", that way I get your number and that of the memorial.

When researching European names, pay specific attention to the spelling, especially when uncommon letters are involved. In German there are those "Umlaute": , , , , , .
Do not assume that Schfer and Schaefer are the same. And Boeck is not the same as Bck.

Search for European Nobility with and without prefix, e.g. Friedrich von Bayern or Friedrich Bayern. Frederick of Bavaria or Frederick Bavaria. For Dutch names with the "van" search with and without space: "VanAusten" and "Van Austen".

I welcome every message left for me, but will delete them after I read and acted upon them. I like my member page "clutter-free", I am German after all. Giggle.

Thank You,

If you contact me, I expect your email settings to be set in a way so that I can respond back to you. I WILL NOT respond to any of your automatic emails that require me to sign up first, and ask for permission to write back to you. Change your settings. Those are rude, annoying and totally unnecessary. If you want something from me, I expect you to establish a way I can contact you back!

RE: St. John Cemetery vs. Hope Mausoleum
I got several of them changed over to St. John. I will call or go over there next week to make sure I am not misunderstanding the dates/name. Once I get that ironed out, I will correct as needed as I shot and catalogued nearly they whole area.

St. John was Hope by the time this man was buried.
Anything after 1931 was Hope.
Hope Mausoleum and St. John Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery, 1867-1974
St. John, the citys second Protestant cemetery, was founded in 1867 by the St. John Evengelical Lutheran congregation (the cemetery was also known as the First German Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery). The cemetery continued to be operated by the church until 1929, when it was sold to John Huber. Under the direction of Huber and, later, his heirs, the cemetery became non-sectarian. Huber also constructed Hope Mausoleum in 1931.

RE: St. John Cemetery vs. Hope Mausoleum
Yes, I just brought this up on the Find a Grave Volunteer list. It is all mixed but as you pointed out, before 1930 it was St. John.
