Bio and Links
Bio Photo Some notes:

1) OECONYMS: Slovenian gravestones often contain oeconyms (farm/house names, hina imena). Sometimes it isn't clear which name is the surname and which the oeconym. In some cases I've entered oeconyms as surnames when no surname is available. Corrections are appreciated. Try searching an individual Slovenian cemetery by first name instead of last name if you think a memorial may have been entered using an oeconym.

2) DIACRITICS: This site no longer searches for many special characters (č etc.); searching for them returns reconfigured names (e.g., looking for "Boič" returns only "Boi"). To find such records, try searching by truncated last names ("Bo" for "Boič"), and/or first names that don't have diacritics ("Zofija Bo" for "Zofija Boič," "Marica" for "Marica Črv"). (Select "Do partial name search on surname".) Also try scanning known cemeteries ("View all interments"), which is a good idea anyhow because of spelling variations.

Another option: enter "site:.findagrave.com" (without quotes) followed by a space and the name you are searching for into your web browser (e.g., "site:.findagrave.com boič").

3) ALPHABETIZATION: Names with diacritics don't properly alphabetize (ČABC...XYZ֊), so be sure to scan up and down lists when searching.

4) WRONG CHARACTERS: This site used to convert some letters with diacritics (e.g., č > ). I've updated my entries to fix this (please let me know if you see any I missed).

5) SISTORY links: Many of my wartime memorials include information (dates, places, relations) from the SiStory website. Any web addresses given were accurate at the time posted, but some of the ID numbers have changed over time.

RE: Photo Request (Memorial# 156558700)
Thanks for your quick response. I just read the information on her in my family tree. She is buried with her newborn daughter in an unmarked grave so no photo available.

Photo Request
I am have only been a member for a year and I want to request a photo so can you help me through how to do that? I created a Find A Grave for Anna Marie Meyer who is the spouse to John Suennen that you created. She is buried in Winesville Cemetery in Porterfield Township, Marinette County.

Can you help me out?

RE: Norway ancestors
Hmmm - can't get that link to do anything; have tried simplifying to just norgeskart.no and still doesn't work

Norway ancestors
Greetings and early wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Thank you for recent edits to correct place of death in NORWAY for some of my ancestors. Memorial#'s 52051023 and 52051039 have been corrected. So confusing to choose which "Fylke" [County] in Norway, and then to choose a Municipality within that county, and then a town. I didn't know there actually was a town, city, or area called Viste in Norway. Thank you for submitting those edits!

Death: Apr. 3, 1879
Viste
Vestre Slidre kommune
Oppland fylke, Norway

To get your request for a photo of this grave site at Live Oak Memorial Park in Monrovia, California it would help if you could call the cemetery and obtain the grave location and add that information to your request.

They are very busy but they do respond to requests but you might have to leave them your email or telephone number so that they can contact you with the grave location at a time to suit their work schedule.

Their number is (626) 359-5311

Kind regards

John

RE: James Rolfe (# 126789859)
you are welcome. I know that Martha was on the side left of his name. But who ever made the memorials didn't connect them so not sure if Martha is James wife.

Mary Schwabe Photo Request
I have checked the cemetery records and found where Mary is buried but unfortunately there is no headstone for her. I have posted a photo of the area and marked the grave site for her. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Keith
