Bio and Links
I will gladly add information that someone wants added to a memorial that I have made. I will transfer to DIRECT relatives (parents and grandparents). I do need information before transfer is made though, your membership number, your name, etc., and how you are related.

Please use edit tab for any corrections. It makes it easier to make revisions. Links, revisions and corrections sent in messages may not get taken care of very quickly.

For any memorial I have added I will make family connections. I can only connect to parents, not children. It is quite impressive to see how far the family line can go. I thoroughly enjoy my work with find a grave.

Before asking for a transfer, PLEASE read the FAG guidelines and rules. If you are requesting a transfer, PLEASE tell me how you are related so I can determine if the transfer will be made.

Due to the large number of people requesting transfers just so they can control a distant family member, I'm limiting my transfers to IMMEDIATE FAMILY, meaning parents, siblings, and grandparents, and I would appreciate being ASKED nicely to transfer instead of receiving demands. Please realize that you can't expect to have every single family member page in your care as there are thousands of contributors on this site and trees do overlap. I do not control every one of my relation on FAG, and don't expect to. I'm just happy to have them there so I can refer to them if needed.

It is my hope the work we are doing, will benefit the next generations in their family tree search.

Thank You every one that have/will email me corrections.

Please leave a public message.

Is this the problem? If you read #63418266 the last note Linda Hagedorn wrote. Other than that you never gave me a reason. George can't be linked unless you can add a message to the current entry. The sister Sophia still needs work 2 husbands to find and add. George is the son according to the obit. Sorry Bonita Meyer Meier

Diane - Emil is the son of Herman F Buchholz and Louise Schwer. I can provide you census and obituaries of his parents that say so.

I must apologize for sending a "foggy brain moment" edit for my great-great-great-uncle A.J.Lowe (memorial #35254891). I was working on the family genealogy the other day while stuck inside with a summer cold and for some reason tried to link him to my great-great-grandparents. I can only say this cold has me all messed up. Thanks for catching my mistake! We still do not know where his parents (William Lowe and his wife Jane Gore Lowe) are buried.

George P. BUCK Memorial 30258941 - Parent Update
George P. BUCK (1864-1873) who is linked as a son to both John BUCK and Lucy BUCK is not the son of Lucy, but is the son of John BUCK’s first wife, Lydia S. KIMBALL BUCK, who died on 9 July 1866, probably in Bremer County, Iowa although her burial had not yet been found.
Lucy M. (RONCO) BUCK was the 2nd wife of John BUCK. They married in Chickasaw County, Iowa on 27 Sep 1868 and eventually moved to Anoka, Minnesota but were returned to Iowa for burial. No children were born to John BUCK and Lucy Maria RONCO.

35371720 Schoephoerster
In further search, Charles Schoephoerster apparent father of Henry Ernest, is not the Charles that is being transferred as a son to John F & Louisa.
I believe it could be Charles in Zion Cemetery 74609762. I would simply removed him without transferring. More search is needed.
The Charles being attached is actually Karl F. W. Schoephoerster, called"Charles" he married Emma L Barbknecht, daughter of John G. Barbknecht & Minna Hilderbrandt. This Charles was single in 1900 Census. Did marry in Iowa 6 Mar 1902 Bremer. Iowa, and his marriage records declare him to be a son of J. F. Schoephoerster & M. Louise.

Henry Ernset Schoephoerster
Just found records on this man, and his war (WWI)record declares he was a son of Charles Schoephoerster. I have added Charles as a son, and he will be put on the list of J. Fredrick and Mary Louisa's as a son. Charles died in Wisconsin. Just change the links to put Henry E. as his son when he gets added. MCW.

Hi Diane, I was going over certificates for Los Angeles and came across a Christian or Christopher Racker .
I myself don't know for sure if this is her maiden name, but I went ahead and posted this certificate on her Memorial # 35459928 , then I'll take it down. Thanks Werner

Poock genealogy
Diane-I have noticed that you have stated that your Mom had a Poock genealogy book. My grandmother was Dorothea Poock Happel and was wondering if I could see this to make sure I have not forgotten someone. There are over 1200 people in my book. Thank you Jeanne Happel Heineman. I am on facebook if you want to leave me a message or phone 563-920-3827. Thank you
