List of Santa Rita Interments

Do you have the actual picture of the list of Santa Rita Interments? I would like to try to blow it up so I could read it. My email is if you would like to send it my way.

RE: Dornieden Spouse.
Is that you Michelle? I didn't know I was talking to you. How odd that you can't change it if you are the administrator! Still plugging away at ID'ing the Dornieden photos.

Thank you very much for your efforts to take the Photo of my 3rd Great Grandfather and Grandmother's burial place/plot!
Really emotional moment. I wonder if there are any other Vierra's in that plot that are not pictured? I would be so thankful to know.
Calvary Catholic Cemetary in Salinas, Monterey, California,USA. They had 4 children ( Mary, Francisco, Frank and Rollin) and only Rollin Jr has been found. Searched everywhere.
Many thanks,
Jessie Vierra West

RE: Funcheon and Muldowney
Johanna Funcheon Muldowney would be my husband's 1st cousin 5X's removed. I have found all of Johanna and James Muldowney's five children, and would love to be able to join them all together again. Her father, Thomas and our Patriarch Patrick (we believe his brother), came from Ireland to Canada (New Brunswick), and abt 1820 to the States (Maine, Massachusetts and Michigan). Not many Funcheon's out there, so has been fairly easy to research and put them back together in their family units. Thank you so much for posting her wonderful memorial and the offer to transfer. For without your generosity and hours of volunteering to walk and record these graveyards, many families would not find their lost family members. I would be happy to accept your kind offer, and update Johanna's memorial. Many, Many Thanks for all your contributions to Find A Grave, it is greatly appreciated.

Hi Michelle, Josie (Josesphine) married George Taylor on 12 Nov 1919 in Monterey County, and appears in the 1920 & 30 Census as Josie & Josephine Taylor. They appear to be missing from the 1940 census. Mark :)

RE: Sally Valdez Memorial

Letters like this is why I do this. I am so happy to hear that I have helped you in some way. I have had great success with the request photo button on the memorials. Some don't get fulfilled, but a lot do. Thank you for your letter.

Edit requests
Hi, Michelle. I am cleaning up records at Calvary Catholic Cemetery and Santa Rita Chapel & Cemetery and have sent you quite a lot of requests for edits.

Please let me know if you will be able to get to them in the next couple of weeks. I apologize in advance if I am duplicating requests.

There are so many duplicate records and I hope to clean those up and make room for any that have been missed.

Thanks again for all you do! You have added so many records, as I have discovered.

Keep up the great work!

Betty May Duran
Hello, I am wondering if you are a relative of Betty May Duran, she is my 1st cousin, twice removed. Maybe we are related? Thank you, Denise

Well, Mariano Padilla's name was actually Jose Dolores Mariano Padilla. His father was Mariano de la Cruz Padilla. I created a memorial page for him. I'm determined to find where he was buried. The family lived in Santa Clara County at the time (where I live) so I should be able to find him at one of the Catholic cemeteries around here. Here's the link for Mariano de la Cruz Padilla: 118475859

Thank you for asking, and I hope you will link your Mariano to his father.

Hello Michelle,
I am hoping you can assist me with some information regarding Aerie Barnett Memorial number 24167633. I have been doing some family history research and was wondering where the information came from on the memorial that you created for her. It says she is the daughter of Tom and Mollie Wilkinson. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

This may be a duplicate. The headstones read Goularte. There is no Gularte. The other two are already listed and photographed.

RE: Dominco, Domingo
The 'c' on the headstone looks like it's worn....similar to the wear at the end of the date.

No, I do not live in Salinas but I do have a number of Breschini relatives, one being Domingo Breschini. "Dominco" is not a Swiss name, nor Italian for that matter.
