He started work in genealogy in 1986 when he made a list of cousins and later wrote it up in Microsoft Word on his Macintosh computer. He found living relatives in Sweden and in Norway. He is still searching for living relatives in Alsace, Germany, and Ireland.

His Alsace origins are in Strasbourg. His Norway origins are in Farsund. His German origins are in Berlin.

RE: Pauline Schneider (c1878-1932) Engelmann
Hi Richard- yes I took photos. The Engelmann plot has a marker that looks newer than 1950 and I was wondering if it had been replaces. My great grandparents Pauline & Henry are buried there and her brother Henry Schneider & wife too. What I found odd was that Henry Schneider's children are buried in the Schneider plot, even though there are still 2 empty graves in the Engelmann plot. Was wondering if you knew why. The photos I took look like the ones who have, but would you like me to email them to you anyway? All the best-

Schneider Family
Hi Richard- I visited the graves of the Schneider family in Fairview Cemetery yesterday and was wondering if you possibly had info about the Engelmann plot that Henry & Catherine Schneider are buried in. Henry's children are buried in the Schneider plot a few rows away.Thanks- Lisa

Finding a grave
I was tracing my family tree and came across your entry to my Great Great Grandmother's grave info. Could you tell me where it is located. Below is the information you wrote.

I have a photo of Mr. Freudenberg's grave marker in Doyle Veterans Cemetery, but I cannot post it because the maximum number of photos allowed are already posted. Do you want to clear one so his marker can be shown on his memorial?

RE: Arcudi
Sounds like a plan if I can find the original photo. Otherwise, we may have to put your info on my memorial and then I'll transfer my memorial to you. Let me see if I can find the photo.

Elmwood Cemetery
I'm planning on visiting Elmwood Cemetery in North Brunswick within the next few weeks to take pictures of some graves for Find A Grave. com
If you call the cemetery office and get the plot and lot number of the person you would like a picture of their grave stone, I will try to get it while I'm there.
