Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Hi Carrie-Anne
I don't know if you are aware, but a contributor has left a picture of the Holy Bible, which is, of course, Protestant or Christian. It is a VERY inappropriate memorial. Perhaps you can give the contributor the chance to remove it, or I know that Find A Grave will remove it immediately if you request removal.

Hi Carrie-Anne

Mary, her husband and Son (Patrick Joseph Sr & Jr) are buried next to their mother in the SAME CEMETERY (Fort Lincoln), but their FindAGrave entries are made by two other members. Is there anyway to JOIN them by referencing them together?

Wilmount Cemetery ,Galway

Another of your Titanic passengers 17861813, you have buried in the above cemetery. Not surprisingly this is not a known cemetery name in the Athenry area and I would suggest you review your sources.

In response to my previous post on Chappel Finnerty you will find this cemetery in Galway the GPS location being 53.43787 -8.36575.

If you visit the Galway Council site they have a tremendous cemetery location aid where you can locate over 300 of the County cemeteries and view locations from satellite views far superior to Find A Grave or Google earth for the whole County.

Thank you for all of your hard work at this graveyard. So much of my family (Knauf) is buried there. I live in New Jersey, so I can't get to Albany as much as I'd like.

Chapelfinnerty Cemetery

Hello Again,

Just a follow up to post in April and July

All cemeteries and Burial grounds in Roscommon were surveyed in 2005, Chapelfinnerty Cemetery was not included and does not appear in the survey material I have access to.

Please visit the Cemetery Viewer at

The memorials you have created surely deserve to be allocated to the correct location to add to the history of that community.
