|Bio and Links|
I was born in 1981 near Leipzig, Germany and still live there with my mother. |
In 2014 I've FINALLY finished my second cemetery (75 graves and it took only 5 years to add them all)
So go and leave some flowers. Bergfriedhof Mölkau
It would be very nice of you if you would leave some flowers for my other interments as well.
*Now on to the important things*
Public messages: If you ask me something or send me a S.A.C. and there is the possibility that I write something back (like when you ask: What do you think?) It would be totally amazing if you have your public messages enabled... or a working email address.
Photos: All grave photos taken and posted by me may not be used by you without my permission. Ask, and I probably grant it, but please do not steal them and re-post them somewhere.
Linking family members:
I will not link to memorials where the place of burial is unknown.
Find out where they are buried and then contact me. This is 'Find A Grave' after all.
I will only transfer within four generations.
Naming Conventions: Famous Memorials (which in my case concerns mostly nobles that could be famous if I moved my ass and wrote a proper bio)
A short German-English lesson:
Ehemann - husband
Ehefrau - wife
Gattin - wife
Gattin von - wife of
Liebling - darling
Mutter - mother
Sohn / Söhnchen - son / baby son
Schwester - Sister
seine - his
Tochter/Töchterlein - daughter/baby daughter
unser/unsre - our
Vater/Papa - Father
Mutter/Mama - Mother
Two words in Czech
Rozena/Rozen - born
Rodina - family
Disclaimer: (because, apparently I need one)
If I send you a S.A.C. which sounds insulting, assume that it was not my intention. I still have problems with the English language and sometimes just don't come across the way I want.
When you call me a liar to the whole community, be prepared to be ridiculed in front of said community.... and of course, when an Admin deletes a memorial you will no longer see it. xxx
For everyone who actually read through this, thank you for your attention.
For those who didn't, I completely understand you, but it is tiresome to explain every week why I've send this or that correction.

By the way, if you can offer an opinion, I have ancestors named Baumler, but I think some early arrivals spelled it with an umlaut over the "u". There is one lot (not my family) where the family monument has the umlaut as do the individual headstones for the parents but not for 2 children. My preference is to use the spelling on the headstone but others have suggested doing without and making a note in the bio.

Thank you for pointing out my mistake about her maiden name. Sometimes I am overconfident in my rudimentary German (1 year in college).
|Sheila Osmer||Wirth Family|
Hi my name is Sheila Osmer from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA.
I wonder if someone can help me with my Wirth family. My great uncle Ferdinand Frederick Wirth and his claim he was born, 15 Sep 1847, Leipzig, Sachsen, Germany.
His parents are: Charles Frangott Adolphus Thomas Wirth - Eva Edith Mueller?
The Wirth family has become a brick wall for me. Any shed of light would be much appreciated.
I hope to some how get in connection with a Wirth family member.

Her body may have reburied there, but she was not buried there. Such a distinction is important.
|Count Demitz||Ludwig/Lewis of Sweden (3)|
Thank you for the source! Swedish historian Ulf Sundberg writes on page 88 in "Kungliga släktband / Royal Family Ties" (2004) that Ludwig was buried in "Heidelberg slottskyrka" ( = Schlosskirche Heidelberg). Could be a translation error to the Swedish, I suppose. In any case, the book you mentioned seems to record inscriptions, which would be more convincing. Is there, or has there been, a grave inscription at Heiliggeistkirche with Ludwig's name?
|Count Demitz||Ludwig/Lewis of Sweden (2)|
PS Typo: I mean Heidelberg Castle.
|Count Demitz||Ludwig/Lewis of Sweden|
Plesa let me know what your source is that he was buried in Heiliggeistkirche?
Several Swedish sources give his place of burial as the chapel in Hedelberg Castle.

Thanks so much for the sources!

I wish you would reconsider putting the correct information for Eleanor. She was christened "Alienor" and called "Ali" as a child. When she married Alfonso of Castile she was given the name "Leonora, Queen of Castile". The spelling you have of "Eleanor" is used widely and so it is your choice as the owner of this memorial. However, to do justice to her and in using the search engine for her on find a grave, her other names should be included. Thank you for reconsidering, as she holds an important part in our history, therefore her identity should be as correct as possible.

Hello, Susann! Thank you for your recent edit for Otto Gessner, suggesting his name should be spelled Geßner. I understand the rules for use of the "ß" and also that Dr. Geßner did spell his name this way. However, I'm unsure about whether to use the "ß" on Find a Grave. I don't find many memorials where it has been used and fear that most people looking up names would use "ss" instead of "ß." (I think most non-speakers of German don't even know how to make an "ß" on their computers.) Are my fears unreasonable? Do you know whether or not Find a Grave has taken a position on the use of this special letter? I am quite willing to accept your edit but wanted you to know of my concerns. What do you think?
