I NEED YOUR HELP: Check out the virtual cemetery on the right. Maybe you can help finding these folks' final resting places.

DasMachtDochNix1( a t )gmail( d o t )com

Born in Germany in the 60's and growing up in Berlin and Munich, I now live in Central New York. I started my own genealogy in the 70's, then did my High School and College thing in the 80's, and came to the US in the 90's. Now I am taking pictures for fun and business. Some of the photos I post are digitally enhanced, so the lettering on older grave markers is easier to read. The information on FINDAGRAVE is provided by thousands of volunteers. Please let's not forget we are all volunteers. I take exception with those volunteers who say their photos are copyrighted. Why take photos if you're not going to share them with everyone? My photos are free to anyone who wants to copy them for non-profit purposes, no need to ask. A credit to FINDAGRAVE would be nice. After all, they are just photos of grave markers, not the Mona Lisa!

If you find errors on any of my submitted items, please be so kind and let me know so I can correct those. It's important for all of us hobby-family-researchers and historians to remain accurate in the data we publish. Always glad to transfer memorials following the FaG's guidelines. Just send me a SAC: Click on the memorial's EDIT tab, then on "Suggest any other correction or addition", that way I get your number and that of the memorial.

When researching European names, pay specific attention to the spelling, especially when uncommon letters are involved. In German there are those "Umlaute": , , , , , .
Do not assume that Schfer and Schaefer are the same. And Boeck is not the same as Bck.

Search for European Nobility with and without prefix, e.g. Friedrich von Bayern or Friedrich Bayern. Frederick of Bavaria or Frederick Bavaria. For Dutch names with the "van" search with and without space: "VanAusten" and "Van Austen".

I welcome every message left for me, but will delete them after I read and acted upon them. I like my member page "clutter-free", I am German after all. Giggle.

Thank You,

Re: Louise Bostick
Frank, first, thanks for all your great work!

Second, you're right about Louise Stedman Bostick. She has a memorial at Riverside and one at Oakwood. She's actually AT Oakwood with her family and not at Riverside with her husband Maner Bostick. She was my cousin, and a really excellent poet. I have a feeling that the Stedmans felt that Maner Bostick had dragged Louise off to Java and probably had some resentment over it, since it was on her way to Singapore, where she and Maner were married, that she first contracted the illness that would turn into tuberculosis and kill her. Her mother Fannie gave up her own life in Syracuse to move to Albuquerque with Louise and care for her. Had to be painful. Maner himself died very young also of some disease he got in Indonesia. Probably more than you wanted to know.

I tried to delete the Riverside one after ensuring she was actually buried at Oakwood, but since I didn't create it but only manage it, I wasn't able to. Do you know how I can delete it or get it deleted? Maybe send a message to the original creator?

I have another similar case where I need to get rid of a duplicate.
