Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please use the SAC function (edit button on memorial) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related.

I volunteer at Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, and am working on photo-documenting the whole cemetery. In addition, I am helping to research some of the burials, and correcting records where possible. It is a huge and time-consuming job, and memorials that I manage get attention first because it's easier. At this point, I prefer not to transfer memorials for this cemetery (other than mandatory transfers, of course) because my research is ongoing. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

(Please see "Help with Find a Grave" for guidelines on transfers.)

NOTE on obituaries: Please don't waste photo space with obits that simply contain info available elsewhere on the memorial - such as name, dates, burial location. Also, please don't post multiple photos of obits + death notices, choose the best, and be sure to document source. Also, make sure it is ONLY the obit for the person memorialized - not a long list of local deaths, and make sure it is legible. I still prefer to either transcribe or simply glean facts from obituaries and save the photo space for faces and graves. If you don't want to transcribe, send me a note that you've uploaded an obit; I'll transcribe it and send you a note when I'm done, and you can then remove the photo.

The only thing I remember is that there were obviously two markers for the same man. I don't remember the name, or the place, but I remember distinctly contacting the cemetery to let them know. Wondering if they removed one of the markers? I don't know. Thanks for your info.

If there are two graves with two different but similar surnames and two different ranks, how do we know that they are the same person?

Fixed - I think I was using the auto upload and it didn't appear to be working. Thanks -

The person we have listed as her son is not correct.
He is her father-in-law. He is the father to Claud C Arnold (1888-1954. Claud and Lillian named their oldest son after Augustus Milton Arnold.

RE: Eva Kreis Burckel
I didn't realize how big a project answering my question might be!

I've pretty much exhausted and so far as I have found, all the references other than to just "France" come from Find-a-Grave. Maybe you used a better set of search terms?

Thanks for all your good work.

I note for three of my possible relatives (Eva Kreiss Burkel #106847294, Gorge Burckel #106847271, and their daughter Barbara Kreis Burckel Bender #106847271) their place of birth is listed as Soultz-sous-Forets, Bas-Rhin, France. I was wondering if you have a source for that information because I have not been able to find anything other than "France" in various records.

Thanks for any help you can give.
