RE: women with more than one spouse
Haht-Tesch would prevent us from finding Haht or Tesch. We would have to search for exactly "haht-tesch." haht tesch would come back unfound as would haht and tesch.

They've been talking about rolling out the new interface since I started here. Sometimes I wonder if it will ever come out at all!!

RE: Elmre Walter Haht memorial
Hi, Jan,

I just double checked the obit and it is clear. It says November 20. With that said, I don't think I've ever seen an obituary without at least one error. I would think that the best source would be a record of live birth. The compilation sites that only feed the information would not be okay with me. I'd want to see the real birth record.

I can't say that I'd trust either of our sources to be correct all of the time.

Here is the web site that has his obituary. It's bulky, it's slow, but it is the actual newspaper account of things happening in that day.

Don't try it with a phone or tablet. You need a big screen to work with this site:

Elmer Wayne's Obit:

To get to that newspaper where most Germantown obits are published (Paullina Times), use this link:

I walked and recorded St. Johns last summer, so you'll be working with the same information as I was. My information is based on observation and photographs of the graves, first and foremost, with more information available through back copies of the newspapers, and on rare occasions, following up or filling out on Ancestry. My info is about as good as it's going to get, given that I was working on roughly 400 memorials that I created for that cemetery.

Thanks for your continued interest! Let me know if I can help you with anything else. ;)

Thanks, Jan, for bringing the duplicate to my attention. I have moved the picture to the other page and deleted mine.

RE: women with more than one spouse
The best way I've found to deal with it is to go with whatever's on the stone (assuming the grave has been found) and then lots of HTML linking from the BIO section. It's challenging and annoying as it stands. All you can do is make sure that everyone who links to her is crystal clear with so many links to her that it would be difficult to miss her.

I transferred ownership of Charles' memorial to you since you are related to him. Thanks for letting me know of his burial location. I also connected his parents to him.

RE: Roberts/Robertson
I don't think so. Just notice the headstone when I was looking for other Robertsons in cemetery.
