Thank you for fast change to Emma's mother's name/memorial. We can now delete he mother's incorrect memorial (in Iowa). But apparently only you can delete it, mem. # 135393008. Please delete it. This should finally complete correcting my Jansen/Bierma family stuff on Find A Grave.

Schouten memorials
You recently added memorials for Ira 'aaron' Schouten and his 2 wives Dinah Hiedeman Schouten and Mary Respalje Schouten in Forest Mound Cemetery of Waupun. Could you tell me how you found their location and what records are there, because they are not in the cemetery list and cemetery is not listed in their obits

thanks Kat

RE: Wm. R. Klumpers Memorial
I didn't see other Klumpers but I will keep an eye open for such an unusual name, the times I am there. The parents might be buried indoors. Thanks for the research.

Wm. R. Klumpers Memorial
Hi Gert,

I noticed from some Alto, WI cemetery memorials that you are maintaining some Klumpers family memorials and wanted to let you know I uploaded a photo of a military marker for a William R. Klumpers in Appleton Highlands Memorial Gardens, Outagamie County. There were no other same surname burials nearby. Can you connect this individual to family?

I linked her parents. I saw in the census that she was a boarder to John Hubert Muilenburg in Turner Co. SD. Was he a cousin of her's?????

RE: Anna Muilenburg Mak
Was Antonie Muilenburg (Find A Grave # 112163235) also known as Pieter? I saw on a census that her father was Pieter. Did she have a brother or cousin John Hubert Muilenburg who died and is buried in the same cemetery that she is in?? Thank you for your help.

The names for her parents cannot be correct. I deleted the names given. Sorry I did not look at Family search first before approving the names. Family search shows her parents being only 2 years different in age. Please double check your names and dates. Thank you.

I've added the info and links you sent for Peter Fylstra. Just out of curiosity, can you tell me how he ended up here in Laclede County MO? We have a new book for Bolles Cemetery in the making and I'm sure the editor will find it interesting. Are you related to Peter?

At long last I am able to reunite my grandmother with her boys - even if it is a virtual cemetery.

I am James Austin's daughter. Thank you for having this information available. I had nowhere to begin other than a very faded memory...

Thanks in advance for approving the edit submitted.

Hi Gert,

We have added the info that you suggested for John Oostra and linked him with his parents. Is he a relative of yours? We don't have a problem with transferring memorials to family members. If we can be of any more help please let us know.

RE: Hofmeyer
There were two listings with the same dates of birth and death! I assumed they were a duplicate.

Good luck in World Soccer!

RE: Andree Beye

I have posted my grandparents obituaries as well as their marriage license. My grandmother's Witte - Preusse family is very well documented and we have boxes of very old papers pertaining to the families - most of which are all in German.

We do not have much documentation on my grandfather's family. However, I was able to locate him on the allfriesian website with his parents and have also found helpful links about him on

I hope these documents clear up any confusion. I have seen the obituary for the other Johanna (Beye) - it was on ancestry.

Thank You-
H. Andree
