Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been into family history since 1973. I transcribed all cemeteries in town Schleswig, Manitowoc County, WI in 1974.
I am currently working on Calumet County, trying to get all cemeteries transcribed.
If you have corrections or additions to anything I have on please let me know.

I do not take credit for many of the pictures I post here, they are given to me by fellow researchers who want them shared with family members.
If I have any pictures of your family members, you are welcome to use them.
Hint: click on the picture you want, and that will bring up a larger file, and then save it.

I've added a new virtual cemetery -- Cemetery X. In my research I am finding obits for people who have some connections in Calumet County, but I don't know where they are buried.

If you have cemetery stones that need cleaning or repair work on old cemetery stones, Shane Peik, has a Chilton, Wisconsin based service.

40791900 Johann Schroeder/New Holstein
Hi Rose,
Family records indicate that Johann had a brother Kasten (Karsten) however record 40791888 for Karsten Schroeder does not indicate this brother (but a son named Johann (different dates). Have your records turned up the father or brother for 40791900 Johan Schroeder or can you recommend a geneologist with New Holstein expertise? We have been searching online for sometime. Thanks, Kris

40301028 error Muenster
Hi Rose,note that this memorial titled Ella Muenster mistakenly repeats the memorial for her husband Herman. Can this be corrected to reflect Ella's information. Thanks, Kris

Hello Rose, I have documentation regarding my 2nd great grandfather, Johann Schroeder, born 1830 Meldorf Germany. We are trying to determine his father. Would you be able to help. His brother is Karsten. Thank you, Kris Can email the docs to you if that would help.

Since there is no gravestone photo, are you sure of the spelling. His son, Herman, spelled the name without the "e" but it could have been dropped.

I'm glad that you found Herman's father.

Thank you,

I was researching my late mom's relatives and found your post on her cousin Norman and his late wife. I had no idea he was buried in New Holstein. Thank you so much for your research. I only remember his wife and was in my 20's when she died.
I learned much about his father, my great grandfather Dr. J. E. Barnstein, this past year thanks to the research of the folks who created the FB page," History and Memories of Manitowoc. "

wording on marker
Rose, I have recently returned from a trip to Chilton and a visit to the St Augustine Cemetery, with Jenell Keuler, where some of my ancestors are buried.

I send a correction to Find a Grave to have the write up corrected. My great grandmother and her sister, Lizzie Finigan Ferrell, are buried there, just to the north of their parents graves. The marker is not in great shape, so Janell used a piece of chalk to bring out the lettering. The corrections were all made expect for the note part. At the very base of the grave marker is written Children of P & J Finegan ( for Patrick & Julia Finegan. Not children of P & S Finegan.
Also in the cemetery listing it should read Lizzie Finegan Ferrell. Not Lizzie Finigan Ferrell.

Thank you. I appreciate the work you have done to record the graves and grave markers.
