I see that you have a picture of Sohn Strassburg's grave stone on Anna Strassburg's memorial page. He is her son. I took the picture of that same headstone last week for Sohn's memorial page. I had to clean the stone first to actually be able to read it. You should probably remove the picture from Anna's page.

Hi Ken,
Thanks so much for the pictures of Emil's headstone. I have now created the memorial for his wife, Dorothy Fleisner Zimmerman, #148416012, and linked her to him. I would appreciate it if you would put the photos on her memorial also. You should have the photo posting credit.

Thanks for you note Ken.

I don't take any of Find a Grave too seriously. I may find time to add an occasional memorial that deserves inclusion. I haven't added tens of thousands of memorials like some contributors do.

My memorials follow tend to the same format.
A short bio, pictures (if available) of the 1)person, 2)grave marker, 3)cemetery.

Re: Needing anything signed by his mother is way out of the question. The family is still mourning their loss. I think the current memorial is a dignified memory of a young man who realized a lifelong dream, only to be cut down in his prime. Photo at graduation, smiling at completing weeks of training in that crisp uniform and the WSP logo, and finally, the cemetery photo.

I surely want to add the grave marker and will rely on you to get the photo when its been placed. Remember, we're dealing with a government agency footing the bill, don't be surprised if it takes several months.

Sorry my public messages are disabled, but I was getting harassed by another user for not approving one of his edits. You're using the best way to make contact with me. Regards, John

Do not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family with assistance from the funeral home. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.
Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed.

When you have added the marker pic, let me know, I'll re-order it into the #2 position.

RE: Martin Wilke
I have lots and lots of Wilke family in Sheboygan County that I've been researching. I also have a great friend who helps me find obits. He found Martin's German obituary in the National Demokrat and I translated it. The German obits are a bit tricky to translate but always give more information than the English written papers.

I'm glad that I was able to help you. I know what those mysteries are like!!
