Bio and Links
I encountered Find A Grave years ago while surfing the net one day on some Hollywood greats, when I came across Clark Gable's memorial. Getting interested in the photos featured, I started browsing names and there they were: Fernandel, David Niven, Rita Hayworth...I was impressed to see such a keen index of so many deceased persons, even though at that time it amounted to only a couple of thousands!

Although I kept visiting the site from time to time, I did not join in immediately as a member. When I did, I used to leave a couple of messages, but creating memorials seemed a bit difficult. The first one came following the death of my Great Aunt, Sr. Teresa Orlando rscj., in 2002.

Eventually, FAG became for me a special point of reference. It did take me quite a time to collect all the information posted here, especially when it relates all the biographies featured. Naturally, in order to be able to present here all these profiles and photos, I have been in touch across the years, with several dioceses, provinces, and archive collections from all over the world. Naming all the sources is virtually impossible, but I have to mention Mr. Salvador Miranda, creator of "The Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church" Digital Resource.

Researchers might find a number of interesting profiles in my entries, including a full Necrology of all the late members of the Mid-West Augustinian Province and the Western Dominican Province, which I added across the years thanks to the great support and help received from Brother Thomas Taylor OSA., and the late Father Fabian Stan Parmisano OP., (1926 - 2009). Other entries include all the Dominican Friars interred at Rosaryville, Ponchatoula, Louisiana. These Friars belonged to the Midwestern Dominican Province of the USA. Most of the Dominican Friars affiliated with this Province buried at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines, Illinois, can be also found in another Virtual Cemetery of mine.

I always try to remember people who in their humbleness worked and took care of many, in silence, for whom history has left little or no space. Hoping you might find some of the memorials to your interest, I wish above all, that they might be also appreciated by others or remembered in prayers.

Thank you for your message. I really don't know where my great grand parents, Dionisi, are buried. I do know they were from Lucoli.

Are you in Italy? Can you help me find their graves? I live in Texas.

Best wishes, Cindy Dionisi Powers

RE: Sr Marguerite Sheridan
Just received this message from a friend who was born and still lives in Izmir. Hope this helps you.

"Actually its much smaller, about a third of the size of Pasakopru. Its called Karsiyaka (or Sogukkuyu) Catholic cemetery. It is strictly Catholic and mainly Italian."

RE: Sr Marguerite Sheridan
No Eman, I'm sorry I don't know the name of the other Christian Cemetery in/near Izmir. I only know I was told it was a much larger and well care far Christian Cemetery. I can write one of my friends in Izmir in hopes he will know.

RE: Sr Marguerite Sheridan
In April and May I did photograph about 100 stones in the Pasakopru Christian Cemetery. And hope on my next trip to get more photographs if possible. Since I do not have a Turkish keyboard its almost impossible to list some of the burials in Pasakopru Christian Cemetery

A much larger Christian cemetery is located in another province of Izmir. I did not get to visit this cemetery.

Sr Marguerite Sheridan
Sr Marguerite Sheridan, memorial 128493034. I've visited the Pasakopru Christian Cemetery at Konak Izmir this year. And photographed man y of the stones. I plan on visiting in 2016. None of the graves are listed under a plot number. In fact many of the graves do not have any location listed.

Hi, the above is at least one of the photo requests you have in Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery in Springfield, PA. If you would call the cemetery office and post the locations, we volunteers would be happy to fulfill it. Thank you!

Thanks for the transfer. I had not heard yet. He had been very sick since his stroke a year or two ago. May he rest in Peace.

headstone photo for BIshop Innocent Lotocky
I will be at this cemetery on Monday and am willing to take photos for you. Is it possible for you to call the cemetery office to get the grave locations? Phone 773-276-4537
Many of the headstones in this cemetery are written in Ukrainian Cyrillic script so I can only locate them if I have the grave location or at least the section.

Perhaps you would like to create a memorial for Diomede Cardinal Falconio?
