I have lived in the Detroit Area my whole life. Researching my family tree brought me to Find A Grave and I am fascinated by many of the stories I have read here.

RE: Rev Joseph Maier
Thank you, I was able to find the church where he was at in 1912 yesterday.

Rev Joseph Maier
Hi,
I see that you have a memorial for the rev Joseph Maier. Do you know anything about this priest? My great grand aunt was married by him in 1912. Two years after he was ordained. I am trying to find out what church he was at then.
Any help would be great. When I call the cemetery they only had that he was buried from St. Peter's in mt Clemons.

Warren Anton Ratz, Anton Gustav Ratz, Anna Goetsch
My name is Stephen Jezek, and I'm 99.99% sure that Warren A Ratz is my natural father. He was born April 1, 1928 in Michigan, USA, and died March 12th, 1971 in Los Angeles. His father and mother are Anton Gustav Ratz and Anna Goetsch. I did not find out who he was, or even IF he was my father, until about 1991-1992. Earlier this year I found his gravesite at Forest Lawn, Cypress in California.

If ANYONE is researching this family tree, I am the unknown. Apparently nobody, until the early 90's, knew he had a son. I was able to meet with his friends, and even Bob from Virgils Hardwar. They showed me pictures, and said we look exactly alike. I don't know who his sister is, but they contacted her, and she did not want to meet.

It was such a joy to actually find out who my natural father is, and the kind of person he was. If anyone wants to contact me, my email is sunwrap88@hotmailDOTcom. My cell as of 11/3/2013 is 760.701.7630. I would like to hear any stories about the Ratz/Goetsch family line. Please contact me, I'm in San Diego area, California. Thank you.
