Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a plant biology graduate student at Ohio University, but in my spare time I love going out to cemeteries to transcribe, catalog, and take pictures of the headstones.

I am interested in tracking down my family lineages. Surnames include: Svoboda, Giusti, Tobleman, Hansen, Wern, Hofbauer, Holeka, Sedlak, Gruetzmacher, Soukup, Sypal and Prochaska.

James Roy Gray Find A Grave Memorial# 32034219
Hello!! Thank you so much for your work on Find A Grave!! I would like to ask your permission to use your headstone photos on my ancestry pages. I would, of course, be sure to give you proper credit. If you would prefer your work NOT be used in such a venue, I will certainly respect your wishes. Abundant blessings!!

Harriett Roberts
Good Morning Harlan: I am researching the Clark, Roberts Family who lived and died in Smith Co., Texas; originally brought as slaves from Cobb Co., GA. Is it possible that you can share the source from which you calculated the relationship on Harriett Roberts, Memorial#84330773? Any additional information regarding the Clark/Roberts family would be appreciated. Thanks, Wanda (Roberts) Dean.

Do you mind if I use your Find A Grave photo on my ancestry family tree?

Tillie Svoboda
FindAGrave has three memorials for Tillie Svoboda in the state of Nebraska. Two of them have the same birth and death date. Their maiden names are not the same and they are not in the same cemetery.

Tillie Svoboda
The dates are wrong for Tillie Svoboda. This is the only Tillie I could find?

RE: Soukup-Hotovy-Krska photos

Prochaska, etc..
Thanks Harlan,
I have gone through all your information thoroughly and added much of it to my tree.
I had heard of most of those people while growing up, but just it didn't connect!! Mother spoke of all her cousins, etc. with her siblings and mostly they spoke in Czech so dad couldn't understand what they were saying.

I declined the changes to spelling because Find A Grave wants the spelling to reflect the stone.
From the FAQ: Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.
This is because the search will not find the the stone spelling and can lead to memorial duplication. I'll make a note of the other spelling. You may want to correct the ones you have already changed.
