His maternal side were the Reises and Heyers from Germany and Wisconsin. My mother, Hazel Manzeck had her paternal relatives, the Manzecks and Timrecks were both from Germany.

Stella Belter 169547747
I just found a marriage license for Julia Stobbe showing her parents as Stella Zydowicz and John Pluta. Now I ask, where did Belter come from?

Stella's parents are Michael Zydowicz and Mary Ann Zielinska. Mary has a Find A Grave number 178700711.

Stella Belter 169547747
The name is Stella Belter but all the information is for Pluta including the picture. Would please check your information and make the necessary corrections?

I believe Stella Zydowicz Belter was married to a Michael Belter.

I appreciate your help in getting this corrected.

Photo of Katzenmiller grave
Frank-Thank you so much for adding the photo of my grandparents grave. My father Raymond was one of their eight children. My father came from Wisconsin at the start of WW2 for maneuvers in what is now my hometown, Lebanon, Tennessee. He returned from the war and lived out his life here. I was on beginning in 2002 when I retired from teaching in the Metro Nashville (TN) Schools.I was on an old dial-up plan which was extremely slow. I added wi-fi this week and have learned more about my ancestors than in the other years combined. I plan to come to Milwaukee this summer to add tombstones to other family members.Again thank you.

Duplicate Memorials
Hello...came across these duplicates of yours while searching for Maude Fadely Parker:

Maude Parker
119470846 and 108003177
and spouse -
Roe Parker
108003345 and 119470704

the names and dates are slightly different so the Find a Grave admin merge utility won't combine them.

Please do not sent multiple sources on the same line. There no way to tell the break is if you use "and"

Sources: Goral Family Tree and Wachowiak and other Polish families that came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

use n lines or a ;

Wachowiak and other Polish families that came to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Clara Richter

I am the library director at the Whitefish Bay Public Library in WFB, WI. Recently a patron donated a couple pictures of Clara Richter. There is a Richter Place street in neighboring Glendale, WI. I presume she is related to the family the street is named after. I found a listing for Clara and Rudolph Richter on Port Washington Road in The Town of Milwaukee in old census listings. That area is now Glendale/Whitefish Bay. I also found their headstones via a family tree on Ancestry, and her headstone was contributed by you. In connecting the dots, I am hoping you are a descendant of Clara and I can pass on the photos to you. Please email or call me.
