Hi, Thank you so much for claiming my photo request for my Uncle James Anderson at Oak Hill Cemetery in Eugene.

This cemetery is extremely difficult to find - I'm not even sure we were necessarily in the right one - nothing is marked. We did go to a few small, old cemeteries in the area that we felt matched what the description said.
We could not find her marker - we did find a George Rude (?)

Yes I would be most interested in seeing his obituary.

You are welcome.
The Kreisman family is of German Descent, and came to live in Russia at some point in the early 1800's. According to my great uncle, they were among Germans that were invited by the Russian government help develop industry in Russia. These Germans are historically known as Volga Germans, as they settled along the Volga River. The Kreisman family traces to Saratov, which is a village within the Volga River Valley. Around the turn of the 20th Century, the large number of Germans in Russia began to be viewed by many in Russia as a threat, and a movement arose to force them out. The Kreisman family fled the area, leaving "their fortunes behind."
Peter Kreisman and his wife Susanne were married in Saratov in 1907 and in 1908 they left for the United States, settling in Western Kansas. Between 1910-1911 the left America and returned to either Germany or Russia, not sure. In 1913, they returned to the US aboard the Breslau. According to the ship manifest his father was Peter Kreisman and he was living at that time in Krasnapolle, Belarus. I don't know if he remained in Krasnapolle, but I have found no record of him coming to the United States.

I'm related to Peter Kreisman by marriage--he was the grandfather of my great aunt's husband. Since you are related, I don't have a problem transferring the memorial to you.
I would like to know if you have any information about his parents, Peter Paul Kreisman and Katherine Picart. I only have their names, no birth/death dates. Any help would be appreciated. I am still in contact with my great aunt and uncle and they are interested in their family history.

Since you did not provide your member number, I just deleted them. You can add them and do them your own way.

My husband thinks he knows where this cemetery is. I have no idea - it doesn't appear to be very well known. I'll do my best!
