Bio Photo "10 years at Find-A-Grave"
I began my interest
in genealogy about
30 plus years ago.
My dear grandmother
gave me very basic
written information
about my family history.
It has been an amazing journey with
many wonderful discoveries. The internet
has been a wonderful tool. I have been
very pleased to find my ancestors memorials
on Find-A-Grave. So going forward I hope to return the favor for others by adding photos,
information and editing family connections.
I hope to have an opportunity to help you!
*NOTE* Some of these folks are my family.
The others are photos taken and added for
the use of others in their genealogical
studies. *You many copy my photos but it would be nice if you let me know...*
Please contact me if you have additions, corrections,obits or connections.
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me? First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree. Transfer requests that do not include relationship to deceased or are out of guidelines are deleted. I would be happy to transfer a memorial to you if the memorial follows these guidelines. Please don't try to hoard graves. I have worked quite a few years to have the numbers I do and most were added and photographed by me. You shouldn't be asking to transfer if you have no connection... It's always nice when you acknowledge the transfer so I know you received it! IMPORTANT *If you are looking for a "perfect" photo, it doesn't always happen when you have limited time to photograph large sections of graves. I try my best but I am unable to stop and care for every grave that needs assistance. Please request a Find-a-Grave photo through the "Request A Photo" button tab if you do not feel my photo fills your needs. Thank you! DR

Thanks for the transfer. I was interested with this particular group because there is so little information available about several of them. Even the cemetery records are missing for a few.

I've spent quite a bit of time gathering information and piecing the puzzle together and have started to uncover a fascinating family history that I'd like to share.

Transfer Request
Thank you for all of your documentation in the Sheboygan area. I've found your entries invaluable while building my family tree.

I was wondering if you would be interested in transferring a family group to me who are all buried together on the same plot in Wildwood Cemetery. They include my great, great, great grandparents Andrew and Caroline Ecke as well as some of their children and grandchildren. I've found the history of this particular family group interesting and would like to document each of them and continue to maintain the site as I gather more information on everyone.

The entries are:
#80055701 Adreas Ecke
#80055737 Caroline Schmid Ecke
#80055146 Franklin Muehlenberg
#80055122 Viola Muehlenberg
#80055299 August H. Bentrop

Thank you for adding the links I sent to Lydia Wolfmeyer Achilles memorial. Thanks too for the tombstone photos you've included in that memorial. So many family members across the country are able to see them along with information supplied without ever leaving their homes.
