my great-grandmother Leontine Hoffmann [12 April 2012]
my great-grandmother Leontine was born in 1865 in Kowno ( todays Kaunas in Lithuania). She followed her husband to Narva and after spending some years at Kuressaare & Tallinn she had to leave Estonia in 1939 and died in 1944 at todays Swiecie...
Any info (e.g. Leontine at Kowno/Kaunas or St Katharinen/Kadrina or Arensburg/Kuressaare) is more than welcome !

Kath.jpg photo [26 February 2012]
Jurgen, I noticed that you uploaded a photo with the title Kath.jpg. That name was already in use and contained another user's family photo. You would have seen the following message when you tried to upload the file:
A file with this name: (X) exists already. Are you sure you want to overwrite it? Ignore warning and save file anyway.
I removed your Kath.jpg photo. You can upload it again, but please choose a more descriptive title and be sure not to save the photo if you see the above message. Let me know if you have any questions. --Jennifer (JBS66) 14:54, 23 February 2012 (EST)
Thanks have a nice Sunday Yours Jurgen
Leontine Hoffmann [26 February 2012]
Jurgen, I saw the message you left on my talk page. I am not sure what entry you mean. Do you mean the instructions I wrote about adding a page for Leontine Hoffmann? I went ahead and created a page for your great-grandmother Person:Leontine von Breustedt (1). You can add more information to the page such as her exact birth date, stories, more photos, etc by clicking on the Edit link. If you have any questions at all, just let me know. --Jennifer (JBS66) 17:36, 25 February 2012 (EST)
Hello Jennifer, well, what I mean is : how can I INSERT a photo so to have it appear WITH my text. Thanks a lot for all your help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm glad to help! You can add a photo by linking to it like this: [[Image:LEONTINE.jpg|200px]]. The 100px is the size of the image, you can change that number to make the photo smaller or larger.
Again: thanks a lot, dear Jennifer ! There is one more thing, though: I doubt if people searching for Leontine Hoffmann/von Breustedt would click :"User talk Jurgen Tuttipole" Couldn´t I change my page´s title to "Leontine Hoffmann/von Breustedt" ? Regards Jurgen
Jurgen, they will find her "Person" page, however Person:Leontine von Breustedt (1). "Talk" pages are meant for general discussions between users. Jurgen Tuttipole is your "Username" and each User has a talk page where other users can contact them. The information about ancestors should be on their "Person" or "Family" pages. If you know information about Leontine's parents, husband, children, etc - you would add that from her "Person" page, not here. Here is an example of a Family Page so you can see how they work: Family:Gerrit Swart and Bontje Halbesma (1). --Jennifer (JBS66) 11:33, 26 February 2012 (EST)
