I have been a genealogist for nearly 30 years. While visiting Nebraska one year I took 1500 tombstone photos in Dodge and Douglas Counties. I also sell "If I Can You Can Decipher Germanic Records" written by my mother.|

|MrsB||Help with Lamberty's|
I appreciate your help so far, but I would like your help in knowing how it is that William A. Lamberty's middle name was August; how you know he was born in Scribner, how you know his parents were Mathias and Caroline (Westphalen) Lamberty. I am having no luck with the National Archives for him on these details. I did learn he earned a pretty good living in Fremont, Nebraska as an oil jobber in 1940. His birth/death dates are fine, and I know he was born in Nebraska. His last residence was in Hastings, but I don't know he actually died there. I look forward to hearing from you!

I saw that you have worked with translating German inscriptions. My people are German, and I am pretty good at the German. There are a lot of Danes around here, and when I get really stumped, there is a wonderful Danish museum, with volunteers that are friends. The hardest for me are the Polish/Bohemian/Czech ones--I always have to look up those months, because they don't look like "our" months at all.

|MrsB||RE: Thelma Lamberty edits|
I do understand length! If I can help with any of them, please let me know. Our county historical society transcribes and puts obits online. We now have over 17,000 of them, and today a lady and I THINK we are done with the S's to date, but we are meeting at the library to go through those S's to see that all cards stamped "online" really are, and that there are no additions to cards or new cards that are simply there but not yet online. Doing the transcribing, and sending obits to volunteers on Find who manage memorials, has led to learning fascinating stories of how life was "back when"

Appreciate your saying so. The SSDI only gives the home residence--if she was, say, taken to a bigger hospital in a different county, or was on a trip, or even in a car accident, then we don't know her place of death. Thank you--I am not done with the Lamberty's by the way :)

Thank you for the edits! I am (slowly) verifying them, and do have one question for you. Thelma's last official residence was indeed in Hastings, Nebraska, but do you actually know she passed away there? Her Social Security lists that as her last known residence. If you have an obituary, or other record, I will happily change it. I am also finding some other bio for her along the way. Please check it out.

Tamara would you consider turning the maintenance of Annie over to me? She is my maternal grandmother and I have information to add to her memorial. Cheryl

Thank you for advising me that there are two memorials for this person. Mine was the earlier memorial but the latter has more detailed information so I will delete mine.

I am pretty certain he is buried in Forest Lawn. These were records provided by the cemetery at one time. His son is buried in the plot next to him. Also, Billiongraves has a photo of his his headstone on their website.
I've found in my research that when an obituary states that the body is to be placed in a vault, it often to refers to a temporary receiving vault where the body is held until being moved to the permanent place of burial.
The cemetery records for Forest Lawn state that Anthony was buried Oct. 11, 1929, almost two months after his death.
