Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy as a hobby for 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 folks 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 focus are war and military cemeteries in Germany, and historical figures of the Hannover, Germany, area along with their families. And sometimes I just walk the rows. 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.

Ash Montagu
Josef Deserta

I entered his name in Google inside quotation marks and it pulled up a book on Google's book page but it was in German. There was some sort of information on him on one of the pages. There was also another site which I just now looked at of people killed by being beheaded. There was a picture of him.

You are welcome BobP, glad to help with a photo request for you. I processed some F-A-G edits this weekend and realized one of them is on a HOWES memorial that you manage (check your 'Edit' tab). Small world; what a coincidence! Thanks, hope to cross paths again down the road....

Hi Bob, I've just received notice that you've sponsored Beulah Anderson's Find A Grave memorial. Would you like this memorial transferred to you? Cheers, Charlet

RE: James Major obit
Hi Bob,

It can get tricky with records and gravestones, can't it? It's not uncommon for gravestones to have incorrect dates. Some stones were erected years after someone died so dates came from someone's memory or perhaps records incorrectly written or no longer legible. Below is the link to the newspaper account of James Major's death. The year of the newspaper is 1910 so I believe his death year is actually 1910 not 1912. The paper reports he was 80 which would make his birth year 1830.

Here is link to online death reference which shows death year as 1910 and approximates birth year as 1830.

Hope this helps. I like reading old obits to learn about someone's life especially so long ago.
