I enjoy spending free time in cemeteries and doing genealogy. I also collect antique books and photographs of all varieties.
These are my main surnames of interest; please contact me to exchange info/photos: Mayville, Diebold, Star[c]k, Walsh, Hurst, Tice, Walter, Emmerich, Hess, Hagemann, Brandmueller, and Liebenow, among many others.
-Please credit me if using my photos elsewhere!! This includes Ancestry.com, your personal genealogy page, etc. I don't mind if you use my photos, just please cite your source!
-Please submit any additions, corrections or transfer requests via the "edit" tab on each individual memorial. I add memorials one at a time (not in mass uploads as some do) in an effort to increase accuracy, but no one is perfect.
-I have no problem transferring as long as they are not my family; however, I do not support "memorial collectors." The goal of F-A-G is not to "own" memorials for each member of your family, but to make sure each memorial is as accurate as possible.
My most meaningful work on Find-a-grave are the cemeteries I have fully photographed / transcribed. These cemeteries are special because (in most cases) I am related to many buried there:
-Lawrence/Cady Cemetery (Brown Co., WI 2006-07) -Saint Louis Catholic Cemetery (Caledonia, WI 2009-10) -Fairview Cemetery (Greenleaf, WI, 2010) -St. James Catholic Cemetery (Oak Creek, WI 2010) -Saint Mary of the Lake Catholic Cemetery (Westport, WI, 2012)
rejected edit there were 2 edits together-- intial and maiden name. The maiden name is ok but the stone says V for incial an I can not investigate every incial so blame the person who bought the stone.
