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 "" (without quotes) followed by a space and the name you are searching for into your web browser (e.g., " 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).

Mt Hope cemetery
Thank you so much for the work you have done in translating some of these headstones.

The reason I ask is because I thought there was a problem with the date on the stone. I did not think he was part of the second group of "survivors".

Cherry Mine Disaster. May I ask where you got his birth information. I am distantly related. His brother was my great uncle.
Also, the date of death, was he rescued, and died later?
Thanks, Joanie, at the Museum

Pavel Pestotnik
I went to Mt Olivet to take a photo of the grave marker for Pavel Pestotnik. The cemetery does not have a record of his being buried at Mt Olivet. There is however a John Pestotnik 1927 - 1985. John is the Pestotnik located in PIII Mausoleum, not Pavel. There wasn't a memorial for John so I created one and attached a photo.

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?

Hi Donald,

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?
