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 from St Louis Calvary.

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 recently had to change my findagrave email please use the new one of

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.

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. I know the rules have changed to allow 'sharing within the Ancestry bubble' but really people, give credit - Site the Source.

Thank you.

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 :)

Hi Kathie,

Thanks for taking the time to take the picture and do the research for Rachel and Frieda. I'm not sure why you couldn't find Frieda because when I do a search for her through the cemetery, she comes up, birth unknown and death 1915. I will check further with them.

Thank you for all you do for all of us!!!

Hi Kathie-
Thanks so much for finding the marker and taking the photo! I'm in Nor Cal, so there was no way for me to get it. Anything in my area (Solano/Contra Costa/ Sonoma/ Alameda Counties) you might need, just let me know!

RE: Mayer @ Untied Hebrew
Interesting, thanks for that info. I will check the names. Milton had sisters, but most of his family are in Beth Hamedrosh Hagodel Cemetery. These are more likely his wife's family. Good lead....!

thanks for photos
Thank you so much for responding to my photo request of Milton Mayer's grave stone. That you also included his wife's was an unexpected bonus. I so appreciate the efforts of the contributors who make it possible for us to 'visit' family graves in other parts of the country that it would not otherwise be possible to see.
