I'm sorry but I do not have that picture anymore. Sorry I cannot be of help.

Pavel Orsak memorial
Hi Sam, I made the birth year correction that you asked for. Thanks for pointing this out. I also added mo/day for dob and dod based on notes that Deb Hoch left on the pics.
My wife's family is related to the Orsaks (sort of). Her great grandmother was Rosalie Orsak wife of Frank Peters. It is believed Rosalie was the adopted daughter of Joseph Orsak and Mary Prihoda. Are you familiar with this family? If you want to talk about it please contact me at my email address. Thanks. Beau

RE: Apolena Mazoch Orsak
I checked her listing on findagrave. Based on all the information I have in her bio, I must have gotten an email from some one providing it. My husband and I photographed all of the cemetery for findagrave. I am willing to change her maiden name to Mazac or transfer her to you. Angelina Kretzschmar

RE: Correction Needed??
Thanks, Sam! I've made the change on the memorial that I manage. I don't manage the son's memorial. So, I'd give it a little time and see if both memorials are corrected, and if not, send messages back out.

I made the transfer. I will also be happy to transfer any other members of your family that I might have the memorial for.

RE: Link Parents Please??

Please provide the memorial number that you want the father linked to and I'll get them associated.

RE: Error or wrong mother??
You may be right in what your research has found, but in my defense, and as I stated in my bio, any info that is sent to me is taken at face value and what is given to me is what I add. I do not have the time or the resources to track down and verify the data sent to me. If any of the links need to be corrected, please feel free to send me a SAC and I'll update as quick as I can. Thanks.
