Offenbach-am-Main cemetery (Der Alte Friedhof)
« on: Saturday 01 March 08 16:47 GMT (UK) »
I visited
Offenbach Old Cemetery in January and took about 150 photos of the tombs, mainly unattended and partly ruined.
Photos available.

May I copy and use your wonderful photographs and data of the Offenbach cemetery at
http://www.merzbach.net ?

I am seeking a permanent location for the cemetery layout - the City authorities have been sleeping on this for over a year now - and I would love to find combine your data with what I have collected.

The list of graves is at http://www.merzbach.net/offenbach_cemetery/html/offenbach_cem_safety_inspection.htm  [ which is exceedingly slow to download.  One day I will learn how to improve this! ]

Hello David,

Yes, feel free to use photos and data at your web-site.

I have about 150 photos of the individual graves, but they are  on the hard disk of my notebook that crashed recently. I am trying to recover the information from it (not only these photos) and if I manage I will send you photos with pleasure.

Best wishes
Mike

Many thanks - and widh you luck with that crash!!  Oh for a back-up system .....
How did you come to select the particular graves details which you have published?  Was it chance, were there any specific criteria common to the ones you did record?  Have you ancestors in that cemetery? -Maybe we can communicate directly, not via here?  davidlewin [at ] btinternet [dot] com ?
