|Bio and Links|
|I have been researching my family from Poland to Detroit for a very long time. They came from all three partitions of Poland; Galicia, West Prussia and Russian Poland. My interest is also in collateral family members who came from the same villages, particularly those who came from Galicia. Other names of interest to me are families from my parish. If one of my memorials is a member of your family within four generations, I will transfer it.|

|Count Dracula||RE: Wawryzniec Grzywacz|
The DRGS spent over 10 years transcribing the cemetery records for Holy Cross which is now closed. I purchased the whole set of books from DRGS, but they told me that if I used their books to find locations, they wanted credit noted on Find a Grave. So, my good intentions have created a problem. I'll pretend your memorial already had a location and fulfill her request.
|Count Dracula||RE: Wawryzniec Grzywacz|
You created the memorial for Wawrzyniec Grzywacz.
Regina Markowicz made the request. I found the grave and took photo. Did you have burial location when you created memorial? If so, then disregard my message and I will fulfill her request.
Thanks for leaving a note for my cousin Albert!
I would gladly accept the transfer of these memorials if you don't mind. Thank you for posting them. I hope to get pictures of their headstones within the next few weeks.

For the dates you have listed on Rose Darga's memorial page, and the info you just posted about their possible wedding dates, something is wrong. You have posted that Rose was born in 1902, but you just said that they were married in 1915. That could not be because she would have been only 13 years old. My grandfather's sister was born Rose Badowski on 13 July 1902, and married Frank Darga on 16 June 1925. Rose passed away on 23 April 1977 and Frank passed away on 8 April 1973. They are buried next to each other at Mt Olivet in section R. I looked up the Rose Strzelecki you mention and she was born in August 1896. You can look up this information to verify it on either FamilySearch.org or on the Mt Elliott Cemetery Association website.

I believe these are my relatives. Rose would have been my grandfather's sister. I would accept the transfer as I hope to be adding more to that family soon. If you want some verification before transferring the information, I can provide it to you. Thank you in advance.

I was wondering where you got the information regarding both a Frank Darga and a Rose Darga. I have a great aunt and uncle with those names buried at Mt Olivet Cemetery. I was wondering if the ones you have listed might be my great aunt and uncle. Any information you can give me would be appreciated. You can write me back here or at my email listed on my page. Thank you.

|Daniel Pletcher||Happy Thanksgiving|
I want to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. I hope your day is filled with lots of good food and family. I also want to thank you for your kindness of flowers on my relatives memorials. It means alot to me.

Thanks for giving me the info. I added it to his memorial. I noticed that you have also taken pictures of Sacred heart of Saint Mary cemetery in Detroit. My great great grandparents August and Anna Wobrock are there, but I wasn't very familiar with this cemetery, I had requested a photo of their gravestone, but I don't have very much info. on them including their birth and death dates. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
|Matthew||Rose Darga in Mt Olivet Cemetery|
You have submitted information for a Rose Darga buried in Mt. Olivet cemetery. The dates you have match my great aunt, but you have her maiden name wrong. Her maiden name was Badowski. The dates, born in 1902 and died in 1977 are correct. Just wanted to let you know so it can be corrected.
