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).

RE: Julia Szumanski
Please delete the memorials you created for Julia and Joseph Szumanski which are duplicates of the ones I made (#118798470 and #118798418). Thank you.

RE: Julia Murkowska
You don't have any memorials with the name Kurkowski but I do. Perhaps you know Julia as Julia Szumanski whose second husband was Jacinty Kurkowski, misspelled on cemetery records as Faccinty.

RE: Julia Murkowska
Sorry, she is listed as Julia Murkowska in the cemetery records, but you will find her under Julia Kurkowski. It is the same person. See memorials on the four people buried in this plot for details.

Please remove your duplicate memorials on the burials in Section G, Lot 115. I never refused to add additional information on these burials. I only ignored the request until I could confirm the information from the cemetery and have added that to the people buried in that plot. Thank you.

RE: Seavey (122489678)
I uploaded the pic to the original memorial. I did not create the duplicate which was created in a mass upload of forest home records. The person that uploaded the records does not respond to correction requests and aparently is not active anymore although corrections do get processed after 3 weeks or so. I am not sure how to get the duplicate removed but will see what I can find out.

RE: Irene Stubinski (Memorial# 76897877)
Thank you... you did a good job on routing her to the current memorial.... We see this happen more often because of re-marriages, etc.
Thanks again!

When I go to Oconto, I will try to get the photo for Ralph Hansen that you've been waiting on :)
