|Bio and Links|
1) OECONYMS: Slovenian gravestones often contain oeconyms (farm/house names, hišna 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 (čšž äöüß etc.); searching for them returns reconfigured names (e.g., looking for "Božič" returns only "Boi"). To find such records, try searching by truncated last names ("Bo" for "Božič"), and/or first names that don't have diacritics ("Zofija Bo" for "Zofija Božič," "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 božič").
3) ALPHABETIZATION: Names with diacritics don't properly alphabetize (ČABC...XÜYZÄÖŠŽ), 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 > è). I've updated my entries to fix this (please let me know if you see any I missed).

Thank you... you did a good job on routing her to the current memorial.... We see this happen more often because of re-marriages, etc.

When I go to Oconto, I will try to get the photo for Ralph Hansen that you've been waiting on :)
|Angela Halonen (Trudeau)||RE: The Smet Family|
Donald, thank you so much for transferring the memorials to me!!!! The family is huge. I'll take good care of them :)
Check out the pic that I just added to Grace & Henry!
|Angela Halonen (Trudeau)||The Smet Family|
Hi Donald, thanks so much for making the changes that I submitted for the various Smet family members. Also thanks for adding the note that I sent for Henry & Grace Smet and their 23 children (wowza that a lot of kids). I'll compare my list of known kids to the one you added....maybe I can track down the missing 3 children. I'll be working on creating memorials for the children that have passed away and will link their memorials to Henry & Grace. Some of them are still living (my grandmother, Elizabeth June Smet, is one of them). I'll be making a trip to Oconto Falls in the next of couple weeks. I will be gathering obituaries that are on file at the Oconto library and will also be spending a day at the cemetery taking headstone pics for them. If I have extra time, I'm also hoping to spend a day at the Oconto Register of deeds. Maybe I'll find the remaining 3 kids info on file there. I know some of them were babies that may have only lived a couple days.
Do you have any interest in transferring your existing Smet memorials to me? I'll be digging into this branch of the family quite a bit over the next few months. Just thought I'd ask :)
|Maureen Keillor||Transfiguration Cemetery|
I just wanted to thank you for cleaning up my work in Transfiguration. We were on a road trip and had car trouble. While my husband was in the Auto Zone parking lot, I was using my time wisely by photographing in that fascinating cemetery!
|Patricia Ibbotson||RE: Szumanski memorials|
Yes, I know the meaning of Matka and Ojciec. The problem is I don't know the given names of these people and won't use "unknown." If and when I find out their correct given names I will add them.
|Peggy Rocchio||Gvozdich Family Members - Serbian Orthodox Cemetery, Weirton, WV|
Thank you for the corrected information. It was greatly appreciated!!!
|Chris Prondzinski||Are you able to take photos|
Are you able to take photos at Lesno Brdo or Stara Vrhnika, Slovenia? Thanks
|melickc||RE: John Hire (Memorial# 33936909)|
I'm pretty sure that this is the same John Hire. His will (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1971-31312-10296-81?cc=1992421&wc=M934-VZH:710695470) lists children including (1) Thomas W. Hire, whose mother is Mary Pollock according to a marriage record (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XD2H-W5T) and (2) William B. Hire, whose mother is Mary Wortman according to a marriage record (https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XD2K-K82).
Hope that helps!
