I really enjoy helping out others find their families as some other volunteers helped me. Also I can't see making a trip to a cemetery to find one or two relatives and not documenting as many graves as I can.

But PLEASE don't ask for transfers if they are not your direct relatives.

Any corrections are welcome. My eyes are not what they use to be!

And hopefully all the many, many additional information requests are for your relatives only. I'm the one doing the leg work, sometimes in dangerous neighborhoods. I'm in my mid-60's I can't run too fast anymore so the thought of someone sitting in front of the computer researching other people's relatives without being asked kind of irks me. If you want to document others relatives, by all means get out there with a camera and start walking the cemeteries and submit them to Find A Grave!

And I definitely will not change dates or spellings of what is on a gravestone. If there is a mistake I will, however, put it in the notes section.

Christiana Diehle
Hi Marilyn,

I did submit some edits on Christiana Dihle. I have finally found her death certificate. I have no idea how they could have inscribed the wrong year for her death. I have death certificate and Detroit City Directory both stating that she died on May 1, 1906. I was also able to obtain her birth date and maiden name. Her surname is also spelled Dihle on the tombstone and all other documentation.

Thank you!
Sarah Robb

P.S. This is my ggg grandmother.

Hi Marilyn,

I notice you took a picture of my grandmothers family. Do you have any more information on them or has any other people inquired about them?

Herman Nagel b:1857 Germany
I am looking for a relative of this person. I was a friend of his grandson's wife and I have a lot of OLD photos, etc from Germany. I'd hate to throw them away as I'm sure they would mean a lot to the family. His son was Herman, born 1897 in NE. This Herman's wife was Willie Wood Condley.

Well thank you very much. I am glad you had the picture of the stone on there as it has been knocked off it's pedestal now. Current cemetery owners don't provide much upkeep and one of the few cemeteries to charge $5.00 for one grave location look-up.

Hello, would you please transfer Bertha to me. She is my 1st cousin twice removed. I wanted to link her to her mother who is buried next to her: Christine Schumann, Mother's stone was buried under dirt and grass. I was there yesterday and uncovered Stepfather, mother, sister and brother in law.
If you do not wish to transfer, would you update with any info I have?
Bertha is 87521384.

RE: Wischnofsky/Senusky
Go to in the lower black area click on databases then scroll down to Heritage Quest. Click on census. Look at 1880 Wischnofsky. All the family members are listed. Including the twins Johanna and William. In later census you will find William in Jackson Prison for shooting his wife Georgie in the head and killing her. In later years he is paroled and lives with Johanna (Married name Thanes). After 1880 the last name is spelled Senusky. They all lived in Detroit. The ship they came over on was The Star of Hope. Thought I saved that info but may have lost it when I had computer problems. I think they were listed as Wischnofske on the manifest. There's another census with them listed as Senusky. I'll keep looking. Carol
