Bio and Links
Bio Photo Some notes:

1) OECONYMS: Slovenian gravestones often contain oeconyms (farm/house names, hina imena). Sometimes it isn't clear which name is the surname and which the oeconym. In some cases I've entered oeconyms as surnames when no surname is available. Corrections are appreciated. Try searching an individual Slovenian cemetery by first name instead of last name if you think a memorial may have been entered using an oeconym.

2) DIACRITICS: This site no longer searches for many special characters (č etc.); searching for them returns reconfigured names (e.g., looking for "Boič" returns only "Boi"). To find such records, try searching by truncated last names ("Bo" for "Boič"), and/or first names that don't have diacritics ("Zofija Bo" for "Zofija Boič," "Marica" for "Marica Črv"). (Select "Do partial name search on surname".) Also try scanning known cemeteries ("View all interments"), which is a good idea anyhow because of spelling variations.

Another option: enter "site:.findagrave.com" (without quotes) followed by a space and the name you are searching for into your web browser (e.g., "site:.findagrave.com boič").

3) ALPHABETIZATION: Names with diacritics don't properly alphabetize (ČABC...XYZ֊), so be sure to scan up and down lists when searching.

4) WRONG CHARACTERS: This site used to convert some letters with diacritics (e.g., č > ). I've updated my entries to fix this (please let me know if you see any I missed).

5) SISTORY links: Many of my wartime memorials include information (dates, places, relations) from the SiStory website. Any web addresses given were accurate at the time posted, but some of the ID numbers have changed over time.

I have added you as a friend because I have found many a marker that I can't decipher. I have done extensive adds from all cemeteries and your research will be very valuable in the future. I will send you the links when found and hope we can find something.

Thanks for pointing that out too me. Since I have no knowledge of foreign languages. I did find Winter for Anna Maria of Brookmere and Will dig for the two in Scranton Road. If in a few days I don't find a last name or Dup I will remove the entries.

His name was there, I mean I found the death but was not sure it was he, so this was a fortuitous thing you did!

information on the memorial for Unknown person, I went with the SD death record, looks likely, since I can't go look at the stone!

Burial customs/regulations
Donald,

What exactly are the burial customs/regulations in both Austria and Slovenia? Is it not possible for more that one individual to be buried in a single grave, and either one not be identified on a marker? It seems to be more prevalent in older (early 1800s).
I have been searching in both countries for great and great, great grandparents with no luck.

Thanks for your efforts

Sutter Bertha and Elmer
Bertha #80331070 and Elmer Sutter #80331087 are both in the Apostolic Christian Church Cemetery which is now listed on F.A G. Here at the Fort we have it in the Apostolic Christian Church Book. The Sutter's are actually on a list on the internet ( Fairbury Ill. Apostolic Church Section of Graceland)that lists the oldest burials in this section. Hoping they can either be relocated to A.C.C.C. or a note added to their listings stating where the graves are. This will aid anyone searching their location.Thanks.

Thank you so much for additing a photo for Joef Kocijančič (his wife Francika is buried there as well) my 2 x great grandparents. I have actually been to his cemetery in 2013 and found them. It is nice to see it linked to Ancestry.com now.
