Bio and Links
Bio Photo My interest in Find A Grave began while researching my family history. After creating memorials for my ancestors and extended family, I added information from obituaries in old extant newspapers.

For the past few years my focus has been on taking headstone photos. I am currently playing catch-up, editing and adding pictures I took in 2014 and 2015.

Like you, I am a volunteer. I participate in this labor of love because I believe it's an important part of our history.

I will gladly update any memorial in my care with a sourced request. Simply share a few details about how you know something to be true when you submit an edit (using the edit tabs please).

Inside voices and good manners are very much appreciated.

RE: Carl and Margret Feltman
Margret Feltman Johansdotter was my great-grandmothers sister, Cecilia Johansdotter. The Feltman's emmigrated from Sweden and homesteaded with my grandfather, John Nelson, in St. Louis County Minnesota in 1914. I maintain my own genealogy web site and have included the link to it. All of the family information is there including the sources.

I have also received information from Richard Feltman, a survivng family member in Spokane, Washington and from Gerda Feltman, before she died in 2008.

Find A Grave Memorial# 137617486
In the actual body of the memorial bio, the obituary reads in part:
Age 98, formerly of Rockton, Illinois (35 years) and Westchester, Illinois (26 years) passed away at Rosewood Care Center of Rockford.
He was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Edwin and Anna Johnson. He was preceded in death by his parents Edwin and Anna, his brother Gale and the love of his life, his wife of 68 years, Madeline (Rossi).
Also I used my usual tool, for each individually.

RE: Transfers
Thank you Laurie I will try that. I also noticed that the same annomous person made memorials for Joseph and one for
Stefi Janek. Notice the spelling is wrong as it should have been Janik as per how you'd made them correctly. I will try to use that same link to have those two wrong memorials removed.
Thanks again you've been a big help.

Thank you I have received the transfers for Joseph and Stefi Janik and the 3 of 4 Lowry's. I have one question. Vilma Janik Lowry was created by annomous and maintained by find a grave #8. Do you know what I have to do to get that one maintained by me also? She is the daughter of Joseph and Stefi Janik.

Thanks for pointing those out. Looks like the errors were either a simple "oops" or because the full names weren't there, try as we might mistakes happen. I have sent edits to reflect the full names. I also had reflected that Bridget was married to Thomas. The records we uploaded and linked to are all from information we gathered from cemetery records when we (along with some great people) spent the summer rephotographing all of Mt.Olivet a year ago. A labor of love I'm certain you'd agree. Again thank for sending the edits.
