Bio and Links
Bio Photo Some notes:

1) OECONYMS: Slovenian gravestones often contain oeconyms (farm/house names, hina imena). Sometimes it isn't clear which name is the surname and which the oeconym. In some cases I've entered oeconyms as surnames when no surname is available. Corrections are appreciated. Try searching an individual Slovenian cemetery by first name instead of last name if you think a memorial may have been entered using an oeconym.

2) DIACRITICS: This site no longer searches for many special characters (č etc.); searching for them returns reconfigured names (e.g., looking for "Boič" returns only "Boi"). To find such records, try searching by truncated last names ("Bo" for "Boič"), and/or first names that don't have diacritics ("Zofija Bo" for "Zofija Boič," "Marica" for "Marica Črv"). (Select "Do partial name search on surname".) Also try scanning known cemeteries ("View all interments"), which is a good idea anyhow because of spelling variations.

Another option: enter "site:.findagrave.com" (without quotes) followed by a space and the name you are searching for into your web browser (e.g., "site:.findagrave.com boič").

3) ALPHABETIZATION: Names with diacritics don't properly alphabetize (ČABC...XYZ֊), so be sure to scan up and down lists when searching.

4) WRONG CHARACTERS: This site used to convert some letters with diacritics (e.g., č > ). I've updated my entries to fix this (please let me know if you see any I missed).

RE: samuel smallwood
If you typed as many obits as I do there are bound to be some errors and I try hard to catch them.but I wonder do you live around here? if it wasnt for me you might not have pictures of the smallwoods etc.
so you are welcome that I worked so hard to get them to Find A Grave.

43593800 in greenwood cemetry. I am not sure why you would put a obit from a newspaper in the picture section when I had taken the time to type it out and its where it belongs.
I believe that Find A Grave rules that those kind of things should not go in the picture section.
I appreciate it you taking the time to do that but since I worked for weeks on the smallwood family and went to the cemetery and to the library and put things on to make the site look nice?
I would really appreciate it if you would take it down. If you have any thing to add I would be glad to do so if you use the edit button
thanks for your help

Samuel P. Walsh
You sent me a Find A Grave correction for Mr. Walsh as birthplace "Unknown" although I'd entered His birthplace as Oconto, Oconto County, Wisconsin USA.

Are You related to Him? Census indicate Him being born in Wisconsin: 1905 and 1910 He's living with Parents Luke and Mary in Oconto, WI.

Thank You!

Donald, Otto Heerssen has been linked to his parents per your request. Is this a memorial you would like to have? Let me know if you do.

RE: Julia Szumanski
Please delete the memorials you created for Julia and Joseph Szumanski which are duplicates of the ones I made (#118798470 and #118798418). Thank you.

RE: Julia Murkowska
You don't have any memorials with the name Kurkowski but I do. Perhaps you know Julia as Julia Szumanski whose second husband was Jacinty Kurkowski, misspelled on cemetery records as Faccinty.
