Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a retired teacher from Wisconsin who became interested in genealogy in the fall of 2012. I'm looking forward to learning more about ways to find out information about my ancestors and my husband's ancestors.

I am more than happy to make additions and/or corrections to memorials. Please use the edit key rather than leaving a public message. If you are a relative and would like to have a memorial transferred to you, please submit that request through the edit key as well. If I am not a relative, I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.

When I take photos at cemeteries, I like to take a wide shot if possible to include other family members. I usually create a caption for the photo saying who is in the photo. To see the caption, just double click on the photo. I also use the abbreviation OSSW (on same stone with) frequently when two or more people share the same stone.

I am granting permission to use any photos that I have taken for any non-commercial use. It would be appreciated if you would acknowledge that the photo came from me. Please feel free to use them on family trees and other websites.

*****************************************

Please check out the virtual cemeteries that I have been working on. If you have any information that you would like to share with me, please use the edit key or send me a public message through Find A Grave.

*****************************************
I enjoy photographing entire cemeteries, creating new memorials, and adding photos to existing memorials. I try to do a quick search to see if I can document family relationships. Before I go on to the next cemetery, I try to make sure that duplicate memorials have been removed and all memorials are actually in the correct cemetery (when possible).

Listed below are the cemeteries I have completed so far by county. The first year listed is the year I photographed the entire cemetery. The second year, if listed, is the year I last walked through the entire cemetery again looking for updates.

*****************************************

Note: 99.9% of all Find A Grave contributors are wonderful people. However, there are a few people who operate outside of the Find A Grave guidelines. There are some people who create memorials for relatives and list them as "burial unknown". They wait for photo volunteers like me to find their relatives and create memorials for them in a given cemetery. Then after the relative is found, the person sends a request to remove the "duplicate" record. This has happened to me on more than one occasion! Please don't do this to Find A Grave contributors who work hard walking local cemeteries and taking countless photos.

If I happen to find one of your relatives you have been looking for, please send me a thank you through the edit key, remove your memorial, and request a transfer. I will be more than happy to honor your request. I might even be willing to move my photos over to your memorial and delete mine under certain circumstances.

If you decide to not play by the Find A Grave rules, I will report the incident to Find A Grave, and let them resolve the situation.

Edit for Stilman Brown
In the edit you asked me to change his middle initial of E. on the memorial to Edwiin. I was thinking perhaps you might have meant Edwin? I just want to confirm before I approve.

RE: Roehl updates
Janet,

Good afternoon. I have a question for you. I have in my records that Dorothy Roehl (later changed to Rahl) and her son Herman Roehl (later changed to Rahl)were buried in Saint Johns Cemetery located in Princeton, Green Lake County, Wisconsin. Dorothy was buried there in February 1914 and Herman in July 1938. I then have that they were re-intermented on August 12, 1938 in Hillside Cemetery in Ripon, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin. This was most likely done at the request of Herman's wife Wilhelmina "Minnie" Teetz (nee Schilling). She is buried next to Dorothy and Herman at Hillside Cemetery. Is there a cemetery record at Saint Johns Cemetery to confirm that they were once buried there first?

Thank you for your time,

Jason

Thanks for contacting me Janet. James is a ggggrandfather and I would love a photo of the military memorial. Is it different than this one? http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=78853573&PIpi=53503108

RE: William F Schmidt
Thanks Janet!

I am familiar with those sites, but so far nothing quite fits.

You don't happen to have a copy of that census document you reference, would you?

William F Schmidt
Janet,

Is there any chance you can connect me with anyone from the family of William F Schmidt (1852-1936), who is buried in Princeton, WI?

If not, would you know any more about where his children are buried? I see you have children listed, as well as his parents:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Schmidt&GSiman=1&GScid=89003&GRid=119803427&

I believe he is a brother to two of the spouses married to siblings of my great grandfather. I'm trying to piece it together, but the Schmidt name is so common, it is difficult.

Many Thanks,

Andy Jacobitz
