1) OECONYMS: Slovenian gravestones often contain oeconyms (farm/house names, hišna 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 (čšž äöüß etc.); searching for them returns reconfigured names (e.g., looking for "Božič" returns only "Boi"). To find such records, try searching by truncated last names ("Bo" for "Božič"), and/or first names that don't have diacritics ("Zofija Bo" for "Zofija Božič," "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 božič").
3) ALPHABETIZATION: Names with diacritics don't properly alphabetize (ČABC...XÜYZÄÖŠŽ), 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 > è). I've updated my entries to fix this (please let me know if you see any I missed).

|leslie||RE: Rozaline Petranen Manzelka|

You sent a correction for her maiden and last name. Can you please explain to me why it is one way on her marker and your correction another way so I can feel comfortable making your suggestion corrections?

Bohemian National Cemetery
Find A Grave Memorial# 62648592
I just need a little help on this one before I make any corrections because I'm not to sure. It does say "Jeho Manzelka" on Anna's headstone. Is that not part of her name or does that mean something different?
|wonderer||Mary Manzelka Ludvka Jelinka memorial # 59274630|
I would appreciate a little more understanding on the changes you want me to make on Mary Manzelka Ludvka Jelinka memorial # 59274630.
Her last name is spelled Jelinka on her stone and you have spelled it Jelinek. Please explain why it should be spelled differently.
Second line & third line Mary Manzelka Ludvka Jelinka. If the two names between the first and last name are not her middle name and maiden name. What are their meaning and placement in the center section between her 1st and last name? Could you please explain this?
Thank you for your consideration on these dilemmas.

Hope you don't mind but I added a grave photo for Johann Gostel (my great grandfather) and a photo of him from 1926. Thanks so much for this "memorial" 115911865.

|Jonathan Omholt||Antonija Lencek|
Please change the name on this memorial to Antonija Lencek. "Rojena" means 'born' in Slovenian.
That has been corrected. Thank you!
|Lenora (Weber) Mulock||Wolfert|
thanks so much for the transfer and also your help on the Polish language. It's a very complicated language.
|Don Green||Bertha Perry|
Thanks for catching that one ! Duplicate deleted.
Thank you for that correction; I'll have to dig down some to find what is on the stone below the turf.
