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|
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 http://www.roscommoncoco.ie/OSITest/GraveyardViewer/
The memorials you have created surely deserve to be allocated to the correct location to add to the history of that community.
Could you please transfer my great-aunt, Sr Regina Reilly (18116107) to me? Thank you for taking the photo.

|Gale Cottrell||Update on Tale of Two...|
Just rec'd. a call from the New Rural Cemetery - and yes they are indeed the same. The correct name is New Rural Cemetery.
|Gale Cottrell||The tale of two cemeteries|
I have rec'd. confirmation by both the East Greenbush Public Library and the Rockefeller Funeral Home that City Cemetery became Rensselaer Rural Cemetery and then became New Rural Cemetery. Now the question is how do we get these people all in the same listing... Any suggestions?
Could we be friends on fg.
There seems to be two listings for the same cemetery. New Rural Cemetery and Rensselaer Rural Cemetery. Help! I have just listed Norma Shultis in New Rural Cemetery as per her family and it seems to be the name on the sign but her husband is listed under Rensselaer Rural Cemetery. What to do?
|Bob Marlowe||Karl Dane|
Would you please compare your bio of Mr. Dane with his Wikipedia page? There are significant differences.
|Nancy Garbero||Veteran Mears|
