Bio and Links
I enjoy researching my family, learning our history and meeting my many relatives, As an outgrowth of my family research, I have an interest in Volga Germans, particularly in the families from Wiesenseite villages of Mariental, Schoenchen, Louis, Herzog, Graf and Obermonjou.

Find A Grave has been helpful in my research, and I thank the many volunteers who have contributed to the site. I hope that the memorials I've added will be helpful to others. I welcome corrections and questions.

RE: John Schaffer
Hi Denise -

Thank you checking my edits. I got the birthdate of John Schaffer, from the 1900 Federal and 1900 State census, showing John Schaffer's birthdate as Feb 1827. I know I had to have found the day as the 1st someplace. I am still checking my sources.

I did find the information on John Jr. place of death as Schoechen and buried in Liebenthal.

Thank you for this photo for Tony's memorial page. Your skill and time are very much appreciated.

It is nice to see photos and bios/obituaries for many of the people who have their final resting place in Ness. Thank you for what you do.
