Bio and Links
Bio Photo Still living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where most of my ancestors have lived. My passion for genealogy drives me to help others find their roots. Please feel free to contact me whether family or genealogy searcher.
In 2007 when searching for Kocinski headstones, I decided to document old cemeteries on the South Side of Pittsburgh. Below are the current list of cemeteries I have completely documented.
St. Adalbert's Cemetery on Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, Carrick, Pennsylvania started May 2007 and finished November 2007.
--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Adalbert's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after May 2007, may not be listed.
St Josephat's Cemetery on Glass Run Road, Pittsburgh (Baldwin), Pennsylvania started April 2009 and finished May 2009.
--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Josephat's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after April 2009 may not be listed.
Loretto Cemetery on Devlin Street, Pittsburgh, South Side, Pennsylvania started in May 2009 and finished August 2009.

Story from contributor Phyllis Seaman-Eckert about her aunt who died at age 2 and burial location:
There are graves down over the hill at the 1st part of the circle. Apparently, many children were buried down there. In fact, we were always able to locate her grave because it was near a rather large above-ground structure for a Spanish or Mexican child.

--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Josephat's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after August 2009 may not be listed.
St Peter's Cemetery on Arlington Avenue, Pittsburgh, Mt Oliver, Pennsylvania started in August 2009 and finished September 2009.

--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Peter's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after September 2009 may not be listed.
St Michael's Cemetery on 18th Street, Pittsburgh, South Side Pennsylvania started in September 2009 and not finished

RE: Possible duplicate records
Ahh, I see what you're talking about now. Yep you are right, they should have just submitted an edit. That is unfortunate.

Possible duplicate records
Hey Roseanne!

I came across what I believe are some duplicate records as the spelling of the last name is just off by one letter and the dates & first names match.
Records: 43936192 (correct record is 99276452)
43936199 (look at 43936060)
43936199 (look at 99276497)
43936240 (look at 43936083)
43936250 (look at 99276472)
43936273 (look at 99276513)
43936175 (look at 99276258)
I have attached the headstones to the records on the right which reflect the spelling Engelmohr instead of Englemohr.

Tell me what you think.

thank you
I want to thank you for the transfer. It's too bad, as I am always hoping to see family get involved. This side of my family has been the hardest for me as there is not much info. If I only had the 1880, 1890 census it would be a lot of help. But with the transcribed records it just makes it harder. Thank you, Gwen

RE: Thomas C Wilbur
All processed and good to go, did you want me to put the caveat information in the note section? I am happy to do that.

RE: Alletse
Hi, I was wondering if you are related to Joseph Alletse. He would be my great grandmothers brother. There should also be his parents buried at Most Holy Name as well. And his sister Mary Hofer. She died 10-26-1918. I am searching for a Gustave Volker who married my great grandmother Lena Vollmer or Geyer. I am not sure when and where she is buried. Thank you, Gwen
