Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I create any memorial for a family member of yours you'd rather maintain yourself, I'm only too happy to transfer ownership.
I've always tried to not take truly awful pix, but lately in my area someone's been disrespectfully chalking up stones. I strongly disapprove of this "method" and would discourage anyone else from ever doing so, as it's both damaging as well as illegal. I found that if a spray of plain water doesn't work, then foil under a soft brush (say, a 2" painter's brush or so) works to reveal many worn/faded inscriptions. And no harm done.
Plenty of great info in the "Cemetery Preservation" forum here on all the do's and don'ts, like using shaving cream [gasp!], proper headstone cleaning procedures & when to just plain leave them alone. What some consider "ugly" (lichens & mosses) may actually be protecting the stone.
As long as you're reading this far, please know my views on claiming requests: I see it as a courtesy - in that it lets people know that it's being taken care way of saving people time & gas money. This is not some "competition," and no one's "entitled" to any "territory." All one can ask is to be returned this one little courtesy. --What I mean is, you can always message me if I claimed them, but you already have them (or are somehow bent on taking them anyway!). You might be surprised to find I'm actually pretty easygoing. Over the years I've found that Find-a-Grave's spirit is mostly one of altruism. "Claim-jumpers" only detract from that, and will make no friends here.
Update 4/2013: Thanks to some Person lying about his relationship to get me to transfer a memorial, I reserve the right to refuse transfer of anything but direct descendants and may request proof of relationship.

Your guess is as good as mine. I'm guessing it's for her maiden name, but ??????????

RE: Salem/Honey Creek Ragatzes
Dear Lynne, thank you so much for the transfer !
Bartholomew is one of my most prominent ancestors, who packed up his whole family and journeyed from Tamins Switzerland to Honey Creek.
He founded the Salem Church next to the cemetery, and many of my Ragatz relatives are buried in it.
Ragatz is from Ragaz, which is from the Ragazzi family in Milan Italy. It is all a bigger than life story over 200 years.
Your generosity is much appreciated.

Thank you for the update. Yes, I am related through the Walsh family, though not a direct ancestor of this John Walsh, he is a cousin.

Accolas in Wisconsin
I left Scott a message on his "wall" about sending links. Is it OK if I send them all to one place? I will seperate yours from Scott's.

Shoot me an email with an address that you would like me to send them to.

Accola Family Memorials in Wisconsin
Hi Lynne

I see you've started transferring memorials over to me for at least some of those in which I've offered some updated information.

I have a lot more corrections coming to both you and Scott. You guys were quite prolific in several cemeteries in Sauk County, Wisconsin. Are you related to the families there? My mom is an Accola and I'm related to several hundred in the area.

How would you like me to handle the next corrections? Should I just keep adding them to the memorials, or do you want me to send you a list of the memorials that I would like transferred? No problem if you are related, but I will take any Accolas, their spouses (spice?), and descendants that you are willing to transfer to my management at 47161948. Thanks so much for all the hard work the two of you have put into Find A Grave in Sauk County.

RE: Sophia Lasch photo request
I also was going to let you know who all is buried in that plot. Sophia Lasch, Albert Lasch, Albert A Lasch, Girard M Lasch, Helen A Lasch, Martha G Lasch & infant of A A Lasch.

I am sure that it is all family, but no stone.
