|Bio and Links|
Most of my memorial pages are for family. I also volunteer to take and upload photos for other members to their memorial pages. I often add plot location or other information in the photo caption. If you click on photo on the memorial page you will see a larger version of the photo where you can read the caption if one was added.|
I occasionally take other photos and make my own pages to upload them to. If I have entered a memorial for a family member of yours, and you would like to maintain it, please let me know. I will be glad to transfer ownership to you!
A very handy way to find Milwaukee area death notices is to search digitized images of Milwaukee area newspapers.
I have had to remove the links to the Milwaukee Journal, Milwaukee Sentinel and Mil Journal/Sentinel. Apparently Newsbank bought the digital rights and Google had to delete access.
Hopefully there will be access again, my library is working on it but for now there is no online access.
They were also found in the "M" section of
Google News Archives
There are still many other newspapers available
at the Google link.
Some online Wisconsin cemetery databases.

I pulled the name from his marriage certificate at familysearch.org. Married on 14 Feb 1881 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

You're welcome! I've found the Wisconsin, Death Records, 1867-1907 to be a valuable source of information.

Memorial updates have a problem when the spouse has a zero in the marriage date. Give an error sometimes and won't let you save the edits.
Number of other problems I saw last week have been fixed.
When you try to added the same name it tell you what already there. It had a problem, in pressing add. I haven't check that since.

|Tim Koenig||RE: SSND nuns|
Thanks again for your help with the Koenig SSND nuns - and for ALL your help in documenting the SSND community.
My great-grandparents Joseph Koenig (Find A Grave memorial # 135236224) and Helena Hartmann Koenig (# 135230880) had five children, including three daughters. The eldest daughter was Wilhelmine "Mina" Koenig Weber (#162619581). The two younger daughters would join the School Sisters of Notre Dame...
- Sr. M. Felicia (#82374369) was born Josephine "Josie" Koenig.
- Sr. M. Mildgitha (#80239554) was born Kate "Katie" Koenig
Unfortunately, I never got to know the three "Koenig girls". They passed away before I was born. I was able to confirm the above names & nicknames using family histories, obituaries, discussions with cousins and census records. - Tim Koenig

I just found her California birth entry. She was actually born Patricia J. Alvarran. Note different spelling of last name. So it must have been Patricia Josephine and she didn't like her first name.

The A stood for her maiden surname. That's pretty common - I see that a lot on stones, where the true middle initial is actually something else, and the middle initial of the maiden surname is used instead.

Please be aware the photo is not current and I am not sure when it was taken. Our local historic graveyard association has been very active in maintaining these cemeteries but it's hard to get around as often as necessary.
You are most welcomed. Tessie was the loving Aunt of one of my sister's best friend all throughout her life. They died months apart. While I didn't have any plans of doing Tessie or her niece, I was in St. Adalbert's doing a relative memorial who was right next to Tessie niece Rita and her sister, brother in law. It was if they were calling me from the grave. So I am doing my best. I have had to ask my oldest sister who knew them best for I was young way back then. Keep up the great work,. This is addicting, isn't it?
