Bio Photo In fourth grade, many,many years ago, I became involved with this wonderful hobby. Thank you for having this website!
Cemetery: euphemism coined by the early Christian writers. It is a Greek word for dormitory, a place to sleep.
"...passing down memories is the strongest link in the gossamer bridge that binds us as people."
David Baldacci.
"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living." Marcus Tullius Cicero.
In eternal honor of our ancestors
Who left behind so much,
Who started here with so little,
That we might have everything.
Pax Christi.
Genealogy is the warp on which the fabric of history is woven. It is the most immediate, personal kind of history, and for many the most satisfying kind,rooted in the pervasive values of family and heritage. It is an essential part of the one great task each of us is called upon to undertake----the exploration of who we are.
From the Vesterheim Genealogical Center and Naeseth Library literature. Madison, Wisconsin.
A woman was trying to impress her friends at a party one afternoon. "My family's ancestry is very ole." she said. "It dates back to the days of King John of England." Then turning to a woman sitting nearby, she said condescendingly, "How old is your family, my dear?"
"Well," replied the woman with a smile. "I can't really say. all of our family records were lost in the Flood."

Regarding Herman Oestreich
Herman(n) Oestreich of Menomonie, Dunn County, is my grandmother's brother. His birth year is correct, but his place of birth is not Greiz Thüringen. It is Schönebeck, Saatzig County, Pomerania, Germany. The Schönebeck church book is online at His parents are Johann Gottfried Oestreich and Auguste Friedericke Hitz.

According to my information, Hermann's wife Frieda was born in the German state Mecklenburg, but this has not been verified by me.

I would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about Johann Gottfried's parents.

RE: Charlene L. Golay Haas
Don't know why another memorial was setup after mine since that person did not contact me with burial info. I am deleting mine as the duplicate memorial is already transferred to you. Thanks for letting me know.

Charlene Haas
We added pictures of Charlene's headstone while doing Robert and Margarets. A memorial for her with pictures is started. If it's wrong let me know and I will delete it

RE: Dr. Brickbauer
You are correct. I added "Brick" to his memorial as his nickname. He was my grandfather's sister. I live in Michigan and didn't see them often, but we all called him "Brick" too. My father spoke highly of him as a doctor and a person. I have had a few recent email exchanges with his son, Charles and talked with his daughter before she passed away.

Thanks for the addition,

RE: St.John's gravestone photos.
I am willing to help in any photo way. I drop my wife off to be a vendor at the Elkhart lake Farmer's Market each early Saturday morning and then go and take Findagrave photos. I have no relatives in St. John's cemetery except for a slight connection to Karl Schwartz, the inventor. It would be great to have a map of St. John's, but today I realized that there are a few of graves there that are not listed in the Findagrave site. I have been working on the St. Ann and Rockville cemeteries and realize that sexton recorders are not complete. I have been building new recorders, combining both old written records and Findagrave input.
