|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.

I am disappointed in your decision not to connect Marie with her husband because of his non-traditional burial. It seems to me that his burial is well documented, the location includes name of place and GPS coordinates. The location is not unknown. It hasn't been designated a cemetery but it IS THE LOCATION OF HIS GRAVE. The grave has been found. We are posting on FIND A GRAVE, not FIND A CEMETERY. Please reconsider:
Baudouin VI of Flanders "Baldwin I" Count of Hainaut. Non-Cemetery Burial
Specifically: Executed by the Bulgarians, Interred in Baldwin's Tower shown above
Plot: Baldwin's Tower, Tsarevets Fortress, Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria
GPS (lat/lon): 43.08054, 25.65306
Find A Grave Memorial: # 132048238
Thanks for all of your efforts with Find A Grave. Donna

FindaGrave is a public, multi-user database; which means many people are working on the same pedigree lines. It is a tool used to collaborate and provide a way to share information about your ancestors with others, a way to find, organize, and link ancestors into families. It is intended to become a genealogical record that is correct, that contains sources to prove its accuracy, and endures longer than any of the people that add information to it. As many work together on the same ancestral line and add information, it improves the accuracy of information on your family. Because FindaGrave allows everyone access to add photos and in many cases update requests in regards to grave and person data, it is necessary that all relatives of a common ancestor use proper etiquette when editing information and interacting on FindaGrave.
With that said, please understand that I will not remove the historical photo of Marguerite.
Also from reading your profile I must add that you do not own any posts that you make on this informational web site. Nor can you copyright any photos that you submit to FindaGrave. Part of the terms of service when you joined FindaGrave explains that everything posted here is Public Domain. And can be used by any one who accesses this web site.
I personally don't care for Grave Mill users. It's all about the numbers and how many headstones you can photograph and post with out doing the required research for each grave. Remember in each grave there is a person and that person has in most cases descendants. So you own nothing when posting this information. Even the Descendants don't own the information. The information is for all. Please take a moment and think about that.
Thank you for your efforts, but you should be doing it out of service not ownership.

|Hedvig Welde||RE: Bokken Lasson|
P.S. It's your memorial that has the correct name for Caroline "Bokken" Lasson Dybwad. I thought she was from your family.
|Judy Holden||Familie Rommel|
Thank you for posting the picture of the Familie Rommel. Felix Saenger is my great great great grandfather. We knew one of his daughters married into the Rommel family but her information was lost through the years. You helped us solve a great mystery.
I have a picture of Felix's monument that was taken around 1880. Other than his name, it is unreadable because it is blurry. I think it is directly to the left of the Rommel monument as the fence near it is the same. Do you know if it is still there? If so, would it be possible to have a picture of it?
Thanks for your dedication to this project.
|Robert Dunford||RE: name convention|
Thank you for your feedback. I have only been around for about a year and have seen different approaches. I am trying to see if a consensus has developed. My concern is duplicate memorials due to slight name changes.
|Denise Dunnahoo||Aelis Petronille de Aquitaine|
Hi, thanks for all you do. FYI----wikipedia lists her death in 1193, not 1151. Thanks, Denise
|Robert E Rommel||Rommel Ancesters|
Hi Lutetia: My name is Robert E Rommel. I too am a Find A Grave member. I noticed that you have posted some memorials for the Rommel name in a cemetery in Thüringen. I am trying to find anything documenting some of my relatives. My father was Alexander John Rommel. He was born in Chicago, IL on June 13, 1904. HIs father was Alexander William Rommel who was born Ma7 17, 1873, who I believe was born in Berlin. I believe he came to America in 1891. I have some sketchy records from a deceased family member that says Alexander William Rommel's parents were Constance Rommel (born 1843 in Thüringen). The records show he married Louise Freitag (also born 1843 in Thüringen) and that they married in 1871. The records also show that Constance Rommel's parents were Alexander Rommel married to Anna Golschke (maybe Goeschke). I have not dates for them. It also shows that Louise Rommel's (nee Freitag) father was Alexander Freitag. I was hoping you might have something on any of these people. If not, I understand. Perhaps you could direct me to a source there in Germany where I might find some data. Thank you for taking time to read my post. I would sincerely appreciate a response either way. My email is email@example.com. Thank you again.
|Robert Dunford||name convention|
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.
