German Headstones & Maiden Names


Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery
Pflugerville, Texas

Sometimes it is rather difficult to find the maiden names of women. At a local cemetery, I found several German graves with the maiden names listed. What a great find for a genealogist who has looked everywhere (birth records, death records, obituaries, census records, etc.) and has had no luck with finding those elusive last names!

  2. I like this ~ I think more of us should put maiden names on the grave stones!
