|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 recently disabled searches for many special characters (čšž äöüß etc.); searching for them now returns "there are no records." 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 for that correction; I'll have to dig down some to find what is on the stone below the turf.

Thank you for your correction of: "Umiru bojem ovdje počiva" means "Here lies in the peace of
God" in Croatian and the name is probably below that text, buried in the grass.
Next time I am at the cemetery I will check it out and find the name if possible. I deleted the memorial until then. Always nice to learn something new. RLE

You're very welcome and mostly THANK YOU!!

Thanks for the heads up!! What a DOPE!!! I should have recognized the Matka and then know the other was "father" thanks!! I have corrected the memorials. I love it when we all help each other instead of worrying about whose memorial it belongs to and how many.
take care and have a nice and safe Holiday!!

What is the correction? If that means 'Here lies the family' thanks

The Historical Society read all the stones in northern Macoupin co, Il. in the 1970's and put a book out called "Tombstone Revelations". I entered the book into Findagrave, so I am sure the stone was in better shape back then besides it is 7 deg here this morning.
LOL - thank you! Appreciate the fix on that!

Thank you for the translation.

Thank you for the information. I am really sorry about the mis-information on my part. I have a listing of people buried in the cemetery and am posting them to F.A.G. That is the "name" on my list.
I have deleted the memorial.

I added the requested photos for Wallace & Margaret Rosera. They are actually at Shrine of the Good Shepard Mausoleum so you may want to move them to the correct location.
