|Bio and Links|
I was born in 1981 near Leipzig, Germany and still live there with my mother. |
In 2014 I've FINALLY finished my second cemetery (75 graves and it took only 5 years to add them all)
So go and leave some flowers. Bergfriedhof Mölkau
It would be very nice of you if you would leave some flowers for my other interments as well.
*Now on to the important things*
Public messages: If you ask me something or send me a S.A.C. and there is the possibility that I write something back (like when you ask: What do you think?) It would be totally amazing if you have your public messages enabled... or a working email address.
Photos: All grave photos taken and posted by me may not be used by you without my permission. Ask, and I probably grant it, but please do not steal them and re-post them somewhere.
Linking family members:
I will not link to memorials where the place of burial is unknown.
Find out where they are buried and then contact me. This is 'Find A Grave' after all.
I will only transfer within four generations.
Naming Conventions: Famous Memorials (which in my case concerns mostly nobles that could be famous if I moved my ass and wrote a proper bio)
A short German-English lesson:
Ehemann - husband
Ehefrau - wife
Gattin - wife
Gattin von - wife of
Liebling - darling
Mutter - mother
Sohn / Söhnchen - son / baby son
Schwester - Sister
seine - his
Tochter/Töchterlein - daughter/baby daughter
unser/unsre - our
Vater/Papa - Father
Mutter/Mama - Mother
Two words in Czech
Rozena/Rozen - born
Rodina - family
Disclaimer: (because, apparently I need one)
If I send you a S.A.C. which sounds insulting, assume that it was not my intention. I still have problems with the English language and sometimes just don't come across the way I want.
When you call me a liar to the whole community, be prepared to be ridiculed in front of said community.... and of course, when an Admin deletes a memorial you will no longer see it. xxx
For everyone who actually read through this, thank you for your attention.
For those who didn't, I completely understand you, but it is tiresome to explain every week why I've send this or that correction.

|K. C. Mellem||Find A Grave Memorial# 143997918 for F C von Savigny|
Hello again! Regarding your edit for Friedrich Carl von Savigny (that this cemetery is is former place of burial), should the memorial be labeled for a cenotaph? Or perhaps deleted? Do you know to where his body was removed?
|Christine Brandt||Südfriedhof, Leipzig memorial photo (permission)|
Hello, Lutetia! I'd love to have permission to use the memorial photo pictured on Wilhelm Wetzold #20403657 (https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=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!
Thank you so very much for the pictures of the headstones for Peter, Elizabeth,, Martha and Agnus Spreckles. I appreciate the time and effort it takes to do this. Thank you.

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,
|John Wilhite||Henry II Duke of Brabant #5615|
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.
|tommy||Saint Mathilde Von Ringelheim|
I want to thank you for making the memorial for Saint Matilda,she is my 36th great grandmother. How wonderful to have her as A great grandmother. I descend from many of the famous Dynasty's. Thank You again.

|Norman Garrard Ph.D.||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.
|Hedvig Welde||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|
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.
|Robert Dunford||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.
