If I posted a picture for a photo request, Please check the Caption on the photograph for more information. Especially if, there is a general lot shot.

Don't you ever turn a photo over to see if anything is written on the back?

Please Read the Cemetery Main Page. Maybe they have an online burial search.

I will not add cut and paste Obituary's to anyone's page, see the Find a Graves rules. Be original. But I will posted the Newspaper, Date and page location. Nor will I add surviving family, per FaG guidelines.

I am still new to the whole genealogy thing. I have only been doing for about 15+ years. I am hoping that my children will continue the search. Photography is relaxing for I take photos and add them. There is cemetery that I am working on that across the street from my children's school. If you want one of my photos, that is fine, but I DO WANT CREDIT. I however would prefer that they are not added to Ancestry. It is more that you might credit me, but the person that acquires it from you might not.

PLEASE -Turn on your messages. You are missing out on A LOT of info that people may want to share with you.

Please remember, when you start researching a new geographic area, that those living in the area, probably know more than you, but there are some that don't. Like St. Louis City and St. Louis County are very separate, but very connected. Please look at an actual map that has city and county boarders, that is dated for that era, NOT a current map. For example, much of what is warehouses now by river, used to be housing.

Thank you.

General Calvary Map

St. Louis Archdiocese Burial Search

Myself and several others, including Elaine and Sharon, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. We will typically look at every request. Which means - we will check to see if is duplicate, see if they are really buried their (see the archdiocese website) and then enter it onto the spreadsheet. Which is sorted usually by sections.
It is a Very large cemetery (470 Acres 400,000 burials, and 27 miles of roads), so we do sometime wait until there are more than one request in that section.

Most, but not all, have already been added into Find a grave by TVFTH. BTW, they are terrible spellers/ transcribers, so be creative. For the most part they are/were added originally, according to how the Archdioceses spelled their name. Death dates that are just Month and year are based off of the persons burial date.-

-Sections 5 & 16, and all their lots, do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked. And none of us like them because so few are marked, so it actually makes it very difficult.
-Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones.
-Section 37 are re-internments from Washington Park Cemetery, so all there "death" dates are actually there re-interment dates, as we get photo request we adjust their death dates to their true death dates.

Then we each have our favorite sections to do. If you have any questions about St Louis Calvary I will be happy to try to answer it. If I don't know, I will try to find the answer for you.

Happy Hunting :)

RE: Please, stop.
Kathie, please stop. Now you've left a derogatory message on my public board? It was not the sending of information I had issue with. It was the snark, and the demands attached with it. Please revisit the FAQ. I have 30 days to process edits. Sending me repeated demands on what I do with my pages is inappropriate. As is continuing to message me after I've literally said "please stop." Thanks!

RE: Carrie B. Brooks
Thanks. I've contacted them and also let them know that since she was my Aunt Carrie, I would like to continue to manage her with the rest of her family

Please, stop.
Hi again; please stop sending demands on how I manage my pages. I immediately replied to you out of courtesy. I told you I am handling this. 30 days is not even up yet. I replied within days and now you have sent another demand on what I should do. Frankly if you are not staff here, sending orders is inappropriate. It is enough to send the information.

Not all pages which seem the same person, are. I even told you *this is a very bad time right now* and you doubled down with a longer letter and more demands. I have 30 days to process edits. Enough said, I hope. Thank you.

Thank you for the correction. I would like to keep her entry as she was my aunt. I do not know how to merge.

RE: ...Fleming
I'd rather not hash this all out on public messages. I (also) do not like to pass out my email addy. Since you do not manage any of the pages in question, I can't send you a PM via the SAC and I'd rather cut out the middle person anyway - no offense.

This is coming at a BAD time, but give me some time please. You've told me to delete or merge the pages - I'm not sure but isn't the burden of proof for edits on the one sending it?

Regardless let me look into this. Please don't go behind my back in the meantime and get my pages deleted. Give me some time. Real life is pretty busy right now and this is a BAD time but I will need to tend to this or I have a feeling my pages will get deleted without me.
