Thank you for the loving note that you left my brothers; John Snow a WWII Veteran & a Korean War Veteran and Roger Snow a WWII Veteran. From reading your Bio. You have a fondness for the WWII veterans and as a Navy Nurse a tie to the navy. I also have a brother-in-law that was in the Army during WWII. He fought in Germany and was part of D-Day. He has a Bronze Star with 5 bars that went with it. He is Loren D. Inman; 11933603.

RE: Willem Koster
Hello Sue

My relation to Marianna is not a very direct one:she is the mother of Suzanne Hermine Koster,born in Surabaya May 12,1922(her sister is Sonja Suzanne,born Batavia,which is now Jakarta,31-1-1921)She was before war married so Salomon Meijer Kannewasser,who is my nephew from my father's side,he is Jewish.
Salomon was killed at Bergen Belsen, like his father in law Willem,March 20th 1945.He was a famous singer in Holland from a duo named Johhny and Jones.
Suzanne after the war which she survived married a Gabriel Waisvisz and they live in San Francisco,USA but are very elderly(she 94 he 102).
Let me know more about Mariana and what else you know about that family,am very interested
Best regards,

RE: Yours
Sue, Thanks for the explanation.

My wife's family is from Pittsylvania County (around Danville). I think we've found all of her ancestors that are able to be found there, but thanks for the offer.

Please let me know if you want me to look for anyone else in Wassenaar, it's right between home and work for me.

RE: Transfers
Sue, I just realized that I messed up with Isaac Huisman's memorial. I uploaded a photo of his wife's (Klaartje) headstone, but he's supposed to be in the plot to the right of her and there's no stone there. I took a picture showing her stone and his empty space this morning that I'll upload tonight. I guess I got confused because his name was also on her headstone...

I do have a general question for you. I noticed that at least one of the memorials I saw was from 1942, which was after the Nazi occupation of Holland started. Do you have any idea if these memorials were done after the war (I wouldn't think so, because there were so few survivors) or if the persecution ramped up gradually and Jewish funerals were allowed up until 1942 or 1943? I'm just trying to understand the history of the area while we're living here, and the Holocaust is obviously a significant part of it.

RE: Wassenaar
Sue, I think I've added everything I found.

The best source for the Wassenaar cemetery is at
Using that, I was able to find two sets of headstones (Aaron & Lea Fresco, and Isaac & Klaartje Huisman). One broken headstone (Adela Fresco, but Israel's was missing). And, unfortunately, there were two sets of headstones missing (Abraham & Rebecca Hakker, and Rachel van Rijs - no Jonas listed).

Also, Rachel Hakker couldn't have been buried in Wassenaar (the cemetery opened in 1906), but the website indicates that she was buried at the Den Haag Jewish Cemetery. Unfortunately, most of the headstones there are gone and she isn't listed on their website:

We live in Wassenaar and I work in the Hague, so I can go by the cemetery there if there's anything else you're interested in there.

Sue, I've been checking to see if I could fulfill your photo requests for Aaron, Lea, and Adele Fresco; and Rachel Hakker in the subject cemetery, but haven't had any luck finding them yet. Do you have any additional info you can provide to help point me in the right direction?

Hey, Sue.

I'm ok as far as the page goes. I'll let you handle it. I just wanted to let you know about where Matthew is buried. That's just me-- always in the middle of my research.

RE: Dave Goren
Hi Sue,
Thank you for asking, and yes, of course you may use the photo.
I hope you don't mind, but I visited the memorial pages you made for your sweet dogs. They are beautiful and very moving. I love dogs too, and will have to see about making pages like yours for my doggies who have already gone on ahead.

Joseph & Elizabeth Long
Ok Sue. I will look for Elizabeth or Joseph's death certificate whenever I can get to the library to use Ancestry. Maybe it will help someone even if it wasn't my family.

Joseph Long 97334714 & Elizabeth #97334723
Hi Sue~

Actually, the birth and death dates have to be wrong too, because Donald Gough apparently took the dates from the Pennsylvania Long family tree (he left a flower token with the dates in 2008).

I am waiting for the cemetery to call back. They couldn't find a record of Joseph and Lizzie buried at the new location in Stonewall Gardens! I wanted his year of death. I think I know who these people are now (from some quick searching of Fairfax area folks and their marriages). I just want to verify.

So I would never have thought these people were on my family tree if he hadn't updated the memorials with incorrect birth & death dates. They matched the PA Longs exactly.

RE: My parents
Thanks for your note. My parents were also married in a November 23, but my Dad died before their 18th anniversary. Tomorrow would have been their 75th anniversary... Nice to compare notes.
Happy T-day!

I was under the impression they were cousins - their fathers were brothers. I believe they were sent to Auschwitz on different transports, but I was unaware there were photos, so I'm not sure which is the one in the photo.

Laura Ellen Mitchell Snodderley
Hi Sue,

Can you tell me how you came across Laura Snodderley?
She and her husband, George Washington Snodderley were my husband's ancestors -- not direct line.

Good work on the Holocaust memorials you created or maintain. Those have to have involved a lot of serious digging. And, what a fabulous area of study.

Thank you for your service to this country. We appreciate all that you contributed.

Keep diggin'
