FAGs policy about periods.
FAGs Memorial Naming Conventions: Non-famous Memorials
1) If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
2) Use a PERIOD after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
3) Do not use any other punctuation within any Name Field.
4) Do not use Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names in any Name Field.
5) Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

I just thought you might like to know that periods are allowed by Find A Grave when creating a memorial. The above info. was taken directly from FAGs suggestions on names. It is suggested that you do not use a period when searching for a name since including the period will eliminate an individual who has their full name on a memorial instead of an initial.

RE: John Grauberger
This is my father-in-law. He was of German descent, his parents having immigrated to the U. s. in the early 1900's. They never learned to speak English well, but assumed since the father was John Frederic Grauberger, he should be a "Jr." since his dad's name was also John. (They didn't know the English ways, obviously.) My father-in-law pretty much went along with his parents' wishes, but was legally not a "Jr". He would sign his name as such on things, but legally was just John Grauberger. I hope this helps.

Carl DE VISSCHER
Genealogy of the family DE VISSCHER
Hi,

I am living in Belgium.
I am building since a few years the family tree for the family DE VISSCHER.

The family is mainly centralized in Flanders, Belgium.
But some members did immigrate to the USA between 1910 and 1920.
I found some informations on those who leaved Belgium in 1912 on the boot LUSITANIA. It seems those persons are established in Longmont and I found some photos of their grave on your site (Lucille, Andrew,...).

Could you confirm if more informations are available (detailled family tree, addresses, ...) ?
My grand-parents said that more members of our family also immigrated.
Could you give me some indication on where I could find those information ?
- list of passengers who immigrated from Belgium (place, date, boot name,...)
- detailled lists of immigration from Belgium

Thanks a lot,

Regards,
Carl DE VISSCHER

It seems that you have decided not to correct your entry. I will contact Find a Grave and have them delete your erroneous listing.

RE: Tim Hess
I got the drift when he refused to make changes to my wife's ancestors without proof. I sent him the published obituary for William Franklin Noftsger but have not seen any changes movement so far. I had anticipated he would delete his entry when I noted that it duplicated yours. He emphatically informed me that YOUR entry was the duplicate. I noted that he had the middle initial wrong and simply assumed it would be easiest for all if he would delete his entry with the erroneous information.

This is not the uncooperative attitude we contributors need or expect.

BTW, I have been most impressed by your rapid response even on weekend evenings. Your entries have encouraged me to contribute suggested changes to records you have added. I took pictures of my wife's ancestors memorials some time ago but had not, as yet, gotten around to putting entries for them on Find A Grave. It has not been very long ago that I found out about Find A Grave and started making contributions and responding to photo requests in our local area.

Many of my wife's (CYNTHIA (FRANTZ) MITCHELL) relatives (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc) are from Longmont and are buried at Mountain View so I have quite an interest in interments there. Cindy's father (CARROLL LENFORD FRANTZ) and grandfather (ROY WYMAN FRANTZ) were athletic stars at Longmont High. Surnames of my wife's ancestors include FRANTZ, NOFTSGER, MCKNIGHT, GOLDEN, LEGGE, & BECK. We have the family Bible that ELIZABETH (FRONK) NOFTSGER gave to her son, WILLIAM FRANKLIN NOFTSGER, when he married. I have traced the family migration from Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Iowa to Colorado.
