Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy as a hobby for over 25 years and am gradually adding members of my family and others to Find A Grave, and/or adding personal photos from my collection and details to memorials which you wonderful volunteers have already added. I have Swedish ancestry and enjoy doing Swedish research in my spare time.

Besides my family and its connections in the USA and Sweden, my other areas of interest are historical, war and military graves in Europe. The purpose of my contributions to the Find A Grave website is to respectfully honor and help preserve the memories of those who have gone before us.

Please use the edit tab on each memorial page for suggestions, corrections or additions.

My grave photos are free to anyone for non-profit use, and it would be much appreciated if you gave credit to Find A Grave.

Thanks to everyone for your contributions and for so promptly filling requests! I will upgrade all memorials where photo requests of mine are fulfilled.

Braun Family
Have been doing some family history and found out I'm related to Hans Simon Braun. Trying to find any family on him. He died at Dachau in January 1941. He was born in January 1904. It was said that he was a photographer. I live in the U.S. so getting info is hard.
Please email me at: jlandphier@hotmail.com
Thanks!

I am sorry you did not like the balloons. I did try to remove them, but the link you had in your post did not work properly. I finally found the memorial again by searching her name and found that the balloons had already been removed.

Bob,
I'm trying to locate a relative over there and hopefully view her memorial page. Someone I know here in the U.S. had been to her grave last year but he didn't have a camera with him and never took a photo, so I know there's a grave and marker. If you know anyone close to that cemetery could you see if they would take the photo? Thank you very much and thank you for all you do for F.A.G. Al Holter

Thank you for the photos of their gravestones. Your time and efforts and talents are very much appreciated.
Those stones are beautiful. Ironic interruption of that one "reed".

Take care.

Thanks for pointing out that the maiden name was on the marker. I had overlooked it. I always give my sources for anything I add that is not on the grave marker (for various reasons).

Photograph of Sgt L. Dovaston grave
Dear Bob P,

Just a short note to thank you for your effort in taking the time to photograph the grave of my Uncle
(RAF)' who is interred in Hanover War Cemetery, Germany.

It is very much appreciated by myself and my family.

Kind regards,

Les D

RE: Personal thank you from my family
I'd be interested to know if he is with all of his crew in that row or just two of them Bobp. And that would close the book as far as we are concerned. Maybe you'd be able to shed some light on that matter?.
Thanks
Allan

Personal thank you from my family
Would like to thank Bobp for taking the time to take and send photos of my great uncles headstone at Hanover war cemetery also to know he is with some of his crew is comforting.
I'm currently not in a position through finances to go and visit personally so your photos have helped put the final piece of the jigsaw in place.
If I ever had the chance I'd certainly buy you a drink and personally thank you for your efforts.
Once again thank you so much from c.robinsons family.
Eternally grateful
Allan Mawson
