|Bio and Links|
I have always taken very seriously the teaching that honoring and respect for the dead is the highest most important mitzvah one can do, for there is no ulterior motive and no way it can ever be repaid. Every life deserves to be remembered, honored, and celebrated. Those who were deprived of the dignity, honor, and respect of having graves to show that they too once walked the earth especially need to be remembered, honored, and celebrated.|
My interest in graving stems from my interest in genealogy and my love of history and all things old. My particular interests are the graves of children and young adults, soldiers (particularly from the Civil War), and old graves. It's very important that old graves in particular be recorded while they still can; quite a few of the 19th century ones I've photographed have taken a real beating from time, the elements, and unobservant caretakers. I originally became a member of the site to leave notes and virtual flowers on the graves of my favorite famous people (the first one I ever left was for Stan Laurel on his 40th Jahrzeit, or death anniversary), but over time I've moved more towards the non-famous side of the site. I still do enjoy visiting the virtual graves of famous people and leaving them flowers and notes, particularly my favorite comedians and actors. I also enjoy writing bios for famous folks who deserve longer and more detailed bios instead of just basic bios that are only a sentence or two in length. It's a small way to honor them and repay them for all of the good they did on earth, all of the joy they brought to their fans or admirers. Most of my famous bios are for people from the Golden Age of Hollywood (actors, comedians, and people behind the camera) and Russian royalty, though I've also done some for people whose fame came from other sources.
Among the surnames I am researching are Sviatko, Wickline, Vargovich, Wellek, Spirnak, Coukart, Coombs, Mormak, Neiman, and Seigfred (or Seifred). I'd also love any additions to my list of famous limpers.
I always appreciate any flowers and notes left for my relatives and other special people, particularly for my paternal grandfather, my great-grandmother Alice, her little sister Annie (who died in childhood) and her baby brother George, their father Hugo, who was sadly killed in a horrible accident at the age of only forty-three, and my old school friend Fiona, who also sadly died in the prime of life.

|Lisacul Rosie||Chapelfinnerty Cemetery|
Hello Carrie Anne,
Do not believe there is a cemetery of this name in Frenchpark,Roscommon - reference Graveyard Survey 2005.
You might find the area Ahascragh, Co. Galway to be a possible area for further enquiry.

Hello Carrie-Anne -
Thank you so much for your interest in setting up memorials and photographing grave markers. I would like to ask for the transfer of the memorials for George Ruhl # 20153887 and his wife Freda M (Zutavern) Ruhl # 20153903 into my care. I have quite a bit of information that can be added to these memorials. George and Freda died childless, but they are my cousins and I would like to link them into the rest of the family. Thank you for taking this photo.

|Lisa Tandy||David Charters|
This may sound strange but,
I'm pretty sure we are related...
David Charters was my Great Grandfather's (Richard Charters) brother....he always told me stories about his brother and the Titanic.
I would be very interested in discussing the Charters Family & our possible relation, my email is Lunarkitty9@hotmail.com
Thanks for the family history!
|Calcat||Sister Patrick Joseph Kelly|
Hi Carrie-Anne - Could you please add one thing to the memorial for Sr. Patrick Joseph Kelly -17851204 (listed as Patrick Joseph Kelly) --
Please add that she also taught at Visitation School in Elmhurst, Illinois.
(I was a student there when she taught there. She talked about her experiences on the Titanic and everyone knew she had survived the experience).

Beatiful bio for a very funny man. I am enjoying his work on the Jack Benny Program which is being aired on Antenna TV at 3:00 am
|Debra Sage||Great Bio's|
I was just nosing around on here, still trying to figure this all out when i ran across some of your family bio's, etc.
Just stopped in to tell you how much I enjoy when members like yourself leave such nice detailed bio's about themselves, their family members past & present, & that you enjoy doing this so much.
I can see by all your wonderful contributions & photo's, I have a lot of great reading to do. Even tho it isn't about my own family, I so enjoy learning from other's like you as well as seeing really old, old pics & stories of lives lived so long ago.
I was also curious as to how your great-great Aunt died at such a young age of 10?
Hope we get to meet/chat on here!
Until than~Deb Sage
Hello, you have the most information I have come across on Jeremiah Burke, who perished on the Titanic. I see you have a picture of him (amazing!) and his parents information, generally I can only find his birth place and information on the note he sent out to sea, do you have any more details on his siblings names, family or his cousin Hanora (Nora) Hegarty?
