RE: Erwin Sternitzky
A group of us were over to Clark Co. photographing the cemeteries. The stone was in Zion not Zion American where you had Erwin with a different middle name. When I posted pictures Bob's popped up in Zion so that's where I posted the photo. However, when we started posting the pictures in Zion American we came up with 99 that didn't have stones. Knowing we hadn't missed that many I started going through the 99 and 44 at least were in the wrong cemetery so I've been going through asking for removal not really caring who put it up when just to get them out of the wrong cemetery. Hoping most everyone would work with the other person who posted. It's fine, I've pulled the photo from Bob's and put it on yours and asked Bob to delete. I've had to delete several I made duplicates for since I didn't know they were in the wrong cemetery Zion American instead of Zion. Thanks for putting him in the correct cemetery.

Would you please consider requesting photos of your Jindra people? I request 20 photos per week. The goal is to "charm" someone to take loads of gravestone photos at Holy Cross II. A boy scout did some but only enough to meet his requirements.
I appreciate those that share their talents with others and the photos add so much.
Flowers are also good additions! Hint..hint.

Yes....I agree BUT....the cemetery was read by Shari Milks and her website is on-line. if she says they are buried in Holy Cross II...they are.

One thing that works for me is to request photos of the gravestones.

You can request 20 per week. then, if someone looks and can not find them....well then you know they are elsewhere.

As you know, because it is in writing as in the obit, it does not mean it is correct. Obits are secondary records as you know.

The court house would have the primary record live in Ill.

Anyway, many of my family members live in Ill.
Malta, Earlville, DeKalb, Ottawa, Princton, Tiskilwa, etc.

Family Jindra.
Hi; I left a message on one edit telling you that this family is really buried at Holy
Cross II not at the cemetery you have them at.

The cemetery has been"read" by the Manitowoc Genealogical Society and it is on Shari Milks site.

She has asked me to add the burials for Holy Cross II and in doing so, I happened to find your work.

Please correct the burial place.

If you prefer to transfer the Jindra family, I will be happy to put them in Holy Cross II.

Please share your thoughts. Thanks!
