I'm an avid photographer/archivest, having taken the majority of both my and my husband's family's graves. We take (outdoor) cemetery photos from March/April to November or December/snowfall within an hour or so in all directions of N'east Wisconsin, incl: Outagamie; Winnebago (our county); Calumet; Manitowoc; Sheboygan to the East; and in the West: Waushara, and some of Portage, if we're in that area. Mausoleum photos, of course, can be taken all year.|
NOTE to those requesting grave photos in Wisconsin: We won't see any ground-level graves until at least April, given the weather this Winter. Continuous snowfalls; dreadful, bone-numbing windchills; etc. Thanks for understanding!
Here's a poem that touches my heart. It is the reason we are in this service; for both the living and those who have gone on before us.
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked On a lonely, windswept hill; Today we talked where other cried For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched By graves of tiny babies; Snatched from the arms of loving kin, In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay In the last sleep of their time; Lying under the trees and clouds - Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot; Who lies beneath this hollowed ground? Was it a babe, child, young or old? No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay. We had been here once before On a day we'd all like to forget, But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin The graves of ancestors past; To be preserved for generations hence, A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend, For stones sometimes crumble to dust And generations of folks yet to come Will be grateful for your trust.
When corresponding, please indicate the name of the person/people whose grave photo I took. Thanks! :)

|Jerry H||Anna Head|
On the entry for Anna Nancy Head, 105633712, you have posted a grave photo for the wrong Anna. The photo you posted should be moved to the entry for Anna Margaret Head, 128712140.

|Michigan mother||Your Poem|
I took the time to read your poem and it touched me to the core. It reflects so much of why we do this job of making a record and capturing the info for our fellow searchers. The time we spend on earth is so small compared to eternity and with any amount of luck we will have ancestors following us who will wonder about us too. Everyone deserves to be remembered and honored, no matter how simple their life or death was. Keep up your good work.
|Michigan mother||RE: Leo Buscaglia|
I met him on the street in downtown Chicago, when my husband said, "There goes Leo Buscagia" as he met and passed us. I didn't believe him but chased after the man and woman. I caught them on the corner of the next street and asked him if he was indeed Leo and he said, yes, and opened his arms to give me a hug. He practiced what he preached.

These are all in Holy Trinity.
|Michael J. Petrie||RE:|
You seem to have better luck getting good pictures from the School Hill Cemetery. If you live near there, here are a few more that you might want to try. Nicolaus Tintinger (99614608), John Tintinger (135308647). Nicolaus Eisert (136556356), Theresa Eisert (99614413). What method did you use to clean the others?
|Angela Halonen (Trudeau)||RE: Clarence Rybacki|
You're welcome.....even though I wasn't able to get a pic..... I'll keep Clarence at the top of my list for when I get back to the cemetery. If you're sure he's buried there, the office will have a location for him....even if there is no grave marker. I looked for his location using the cemetery's online database.....they don't have a Clarence listed. By that time, the office was already closed. It's possible that the online database just has an error.
Do you know if he's buried around any other relatives? Or perhaps Clarence was a middle name and that's why I didn't see hm in the online database?
|Michael J. Petrie||RE:|
Thanks for adding the clearer pictures. Catharina's husband, John, is buried at St. Isadore's Cemetery in Osman along with his second wife and siblings.
