Südfriedhof, Leipzig memorial photo (permission)
Hello, Lutetia! I'd love to have permission to use the memorial photo pictured on Wilhelm Wetzold #20403657 ( I'd like to post it up on WikiTree as I am doing a one-name research on the Wetzold surname and two of them were among the victims. Proper credit going to you, naturally. (if you are on WikiTree I can link via there.)

Thanks in advance!

Dear Lutetia,

I was astonished to see that my photo request had been fulfilled. I am so happy and so grateful to you. Were you able to take a photo of the entire mausoleum? I would be interested to see it.

You should also post your photo on the page of his wife, the superstar opera soprano Marcella Sembrich, whose memorial is a "famous" memorial.

And that you for you many other memorials on Find A Grave. I have been looking at them for quite a while.

All the best,

Henry II Duke of Brabant Find a Grave #5615.
I believe you may have the wrong wife for Henry.
The one you have is born the same year as her her children. I believe his wife should be Maria Von
Hohenstaufen born 3 Apr 1201 Hohenstaufen Goppingen, Baden-Wuerttenberg. Died 29 Mar 1235 Brabant, Meuse, Lorraine, France. Did not fine her in Find a Grave.
Thank you,
John Wilhite

RE: Photo of Marguerite I de Flandre

FindaGrave is a public, multi-user database; which means many people are working on the same pedigree lines. It is a tool used to collaborate and provide a way to share information about your ancestors with others, a way to find, organize, and link ancestors into families. It is intended to become a genealogical record that is correct, that contains sources to prove its accuracy, and endures longer than any of the people that add information to it. As many work together on the same ancestral line and add information, it improves the accuracy of information on your family. Because FindaGrave allows everyone access to add photos and in many cases update requests in regards to grave and person data, it is necessary that all relatives of a common ancestor use proper etiquette when editing information and interacting on FindaGrave.

With that said, please understand that I will not remove the historical photo of Marguerite.

Also from reading your profile I must add that you do not own any posts that you make on this informational web site. Nor can you copyright any photos that you submit to FindaGrave. Part of the terms of service when you joined FindaGrave explains that everything posted here is Public Domain. And can be used by any one who accesses this web site.

I personally don't care for Grave Mill users. It's all about the numbers and how many headstones you can photograph and post with out doing the required research for each grave. Remember in each grave there is a person and that person has in most cases descendants. So you own nothing when posting this information. Even the Descendants don't own the information. The information is for all. Please take a moment and think about that.

Thank you for your efforts, but you should be doing it out of service not ownership.

Dr. N. Garrard PhD.

RE: Bokken Lasson
P.S. It's your memorial that has the correct name for Caroline "Bokken" Lasson Dybwad. I thought she was from your family.

Judy Holden
Familie Rommel
Hello Lutetia,
Thank you for posting the picture of the Familie Rommel. Felix Saenger is my great great great grandfather. We knew one of his daughters married into the Rommel family but her information was lost through the years. You helped us solve a great mystery.
I have a picture of Felix's monument that was taken around 1880. Other than his name, it is unreadable because it is blurry. I think it is directly to the left of the Rommel monument as the fence near it is the same. Do you know if it is still there? If so, would it be possible to have a picture of it?
Thanks for your dedication to this project.

RE: name convention
Thank you for your feedback. I have only been around for about a year and have seen different approaches. I am trying to see if a consensus has developed. My concern is duplicate memorials due to slight name changes.
Thanks again.

Robert E Rommel
Rommel Ancesters
Hi Lutetia: My name is Robert E Rommel. I too am a Find A Grave member. I noticed that you have posted some memorials for the Rommel name in a cemetery in Thüringen. I am trying to find anything documenting some of my relatives. My father was Alexander John Rommel. He was born in Chicago, IL on June 13, 1904. HIs father was Alexander William Rommel who was born Ma7 17, 1873, who I believe was born in Berlin. I believe he came to America in 1891. I have some sketchy records from a deceased family member that says Alexander William Rommel's parents were Constance Rommel (born 1843 in Thüringen). The records show he married Louise Freitag (also born 1843 in Thüringen) and that they married in 1871. The records also show that Constance Rommel's parents were Alexander Rommel married to Anna Golschke (maybe Goeschke). I have not dates for them. It also shows that Louise Rommel's (nee Freitag) father was Alexander Freitag. I was hoping you might have something on any of these people. If not, I understand. Perhaps you could direct me to a source there in Germany where I might find some data. Thank you for taking time to read my post. I would sincerely appreciate a response either way. My email is Thank you again.

name convention
By the way, if you can offer an opinion, I have ancestors named Baumler, but I think some early arrivals spelled it with an umlaut over the "u". There is one lot (not my family) where the family monument has the umlaut as do the individual headstones for the parents but not for 2 children. My preference is to use the spelling on the headstone but others have suggested doing without and making a note in the bio.

Sheila Osmer
Wirth Family
Hi my name is Sheila Osmer from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA.

I wonder if someone can help me with my Wirth family. My great uncle Ferdinand Frederick Wirth and his claim he was born, 15 Sep 1847, Leipzig, Sachsen, Germany.
His parents are: Charles Frangott Adolphus Thomas Wirth - Eva Edith Mueller?

The Wirth family has become a brick wall for me. Any shed of light would be much appreciated.

I hope to some how get in connection with a Wirth family member.

RE: Marguerite de Bourbon
Her body may have reburied there, but she was not buried there. Such a distinction is important.

Ludwig/Lewis of Sweden (3)
Thank you for the source! Swedish historian Ulf Sundberg writes on page 88 in "Kungliga släktband / Royal Family Ties" (2004) that Ludwig was buried in "Heidelberg slottskyrka" ( = Schlosskirche Heidelberg). Could be a translation error to the Swedish, I suppose. In any case, the book you mentioned seems to record inscriptions, which would be more convincing. Is there, or has there been, a grave inscription at Heiliggeistkirche with Ludwig's name?

Plesa let me know what your source is that he was buried in Heiliggeistkirche?
Several Swedish sources give his place of burial as the chapel in Hedelberg Castle.

The Pathfinder
Find A Grave Memorial# 10783007
I wish you would reconsider putting the correct information for Eleanor. She was christened "Alienor" and called "Ali" as a child. When she married Alfonso of Castile she was given the name "Leonora, Queen of Castile". The spelling you have of "Eleanor" is used widely and so it is your choice as the owner of this memorial. However, to do justice to her and in using the search engine for her on find a grave, her other names should be included. Thank you for reconsidering, as she holds an important part in our history, therefore her identity should be as correct as possible.

K. C. Mellem
Memorial 127847046
Hello, Susann! Thank you for your recent edit for Otto Gessner, suggesting his name should be spelled Geßner. I understand the rules for use of the "ß" and also that Dr. Geßner did spell his name this way. However, I'm unsure about whether to use the "ß" on Find a Grave. I don't find many memorials where it has been used and fear that most people looking up names would use "ss" instead of "ß." (I think most non-speakers of German don't even know how to make an "ß" on their computers.) Are my fears unreasonable? Do you know whether or not Find a Grave has taken a position on the use of this special letter? I am quite willing to accept your edit but wanted you to know of my concerns. What do you think?
Thanks again!

Thank you Lutetia
I would like to thank you sincerely, Lutetia, for spending so much time entering memorials. I found some of my "ancient" matriarchs and patriarchs entered by you for which I am very grateful. You bring so much closure to people around the world. I also think your grasp of English is excellent. In my lineages (to name a few) there is German, English, Italian, French, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and so it goes on. I know one German song, a few words of Swedish, a few more of Italian and still expanding my native English language :). When I met my Italian cousins, I found that I had learnt a different Italian dialect to that of my family. Interesting!
Thank you so much again and every blessing to you for your labour of love.
