|Recently I have started tracing my family tree, and in searching for the burial locations for my ancestors my family and I have found a fun and enjoyable hobby. My nine year old daughter views it as a treasure hunt. She even wants her own camera so she can take pictures by herself instead of using/sharing mine. Now as we go through towns she asks if there are any cemeteries that we need to stop at.|
My favorite "treasure" that we have found was by accident. While searching through a rather large cemetery for a distant relative we found my grandfather. He had been killed in a car accident two weeks before my mother was born. I never knew when, how or where he died until I started tracing my family, and no-one was left who could remember where he was buried. At first when I saw the headstone I thought it was my uncle, as he was a junior, but I just kept looking at the date and knew that it wasn't right. Finally it dawned on me who he was.
I hope everyone out there is having just as much fun as we are. Good luck in your treasure hunting.

Thanks one more time for the transfers of these cousins. Very much appreciated. Now, I've got to get to work on adding info to the memorials.
I have just posted a photo for Vasil & "Susan" Vardamis. It os not the easy to read but I do not see a "Susan" on the stone. Even the item in the Mount Hope Website has her in the same lot as Vasil
Is it possible the "Susan" is a knickname or an English translation or do I have it wrong?

I thank you so much for your hard labors and additions of Harold and Anna Smith from Jump River Wisconsin.
I was wondering if there was a possibility that an obituary was left for them?
I would appreciate any help.

Bob - Thank you for creating the many memorials you have added to Find A Grave. I have been making suggested edits to numerous individuals based upon review of obituaries and records on LDS. I am not related, but they are relation of a friend. I hope your daughter continues to enjoy the hunt!

|R. Lipprandt||Question of birth|
First off, thank you for undertaking what you do, even though at times, it is a thankless volunteer duty.
In my question of birth, in particular Clark County, Wisconsin regarding those that lived in a rural setting and were not born in a village or city. Is there any way to include a township? Three of my siblings were born in Town Green Grove. The nearest village or city would be Curtiss (which is town Hoard or town Mayville) or Colby (which is town Colby, Clark County or town Hull, Marathon County). If entering Curtiss or Colby, the information would not be correct!
This also applies to my grand and great grandparents who were either born in Prussia or Kingdom of present day Germany. All were born before 1871 so entering Germany as their birthplace would also be incorrect information. 1871 was the year that Germany became official as a country.
Your thoughts please?
