BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER, WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. AND THIS IS A HOBBY, SOME OF US HAVE REAL JOBS.

“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.”

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

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": Ä, Ö, Ü, ä, ö, ü.
Do not assume that Schäfer and Schaefer are the same. And Boeck is not the same as Böck.

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,
Frank

Should I become part of my own entries and therefore won't be able to manage "my" memorials anymore, I would like them to be transferred over to contributor af (#47059011).

Marcelle OOT Taylor
Hi again Frank
I have found an issue with the above persons memorial - her Find A Grave# is 127157231. While she is located at St Mary's in Minoa, the husband linked to her is incorrect. Her husband, though he has no memorial, IS Earl Taylor who passed in April 2013 -- born and raised in Minoa, NY. They share a stone. Marcelle and Earl were both born in 1927.

I have taken pictures of the stone, but am having issues with my computer, so it may be a month before I can get pictures loaded.

Also, their daughter Elizabeth [always called Betsy] passed 24 Dec 2012. I think she was born in 1958, since she graduated with one of my brothers. She has no memorial and was cremated per her wishes and has no stone or marker.

If further info is needed [birth dates, etc] I can get them from Marcelle and Earl's youngest daughter who I've known for 40 years.

I hope you can add these two memorials and delete the incorrect info on Marcelle's.
Thanks again for your help.
Donna

I hope to fulfill a lot of photo requests this spring and find some info for your virtual cemetery.
