Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been actively researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

I also strive to visit each memorial I create (plus others that relate to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It is my honor and privilege to do so.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

RE: Willima Drew
No need for aggressive language. That is why Findagrave's system is to have an acceptance of a proposed change, so that it can be rejected when in error. So the system worked.
I had never seen a name Willima before and 99% of corrections of Willima were accepted as they were typos or errors of William, even on the stones.
I have corrected some 4000 errors in names to date, which means that 4000 memorials MORE can now be found by people searching for them by their proper name. And most reactions from people are very positive.
Let's be positive and improve on the tremendous work contributors have (already) done, eh?
Have a nice day.

Cimino Photo Request - Mt Carmel, Hillside, IL
Hi Patti! I was out in Mt Carmel today looking around in Section B. I didn't find the Cimino's you're trying to get pics for but I did find the following:

First - I uploaded a headstone pic for Amelia Cimino who already has a memorial. She also shares a marker with Eugenio Martinetto (also has memorial). In front of her marker and closer to the road is Salvatora Cimino 1851 - 1925 (no memorial).

Also not far away is Frank Rullo 1913-1995 and Dorothy Rullo 1918-Unknown. Based on the way they're facing, they seem to be a part of the St Francis area which is next to Sect B. but that could be a coincidence. There's a map on the cemetery page if you want to look at the area.

Finally, in Section H, which also shares the area, I found the Torraco surname that you mentioned with the Venute photo requests. Rose Torraco 1881-1926, Joseph Torraco 1876-1924, and James Torraco 1907-1962.

I've got pics for all so let me know when you've created their memorials. Have a great night, Stacey

Add'l Graves at Mt. Carmel
I was able to find additional graves of family members at Mt. Carmel. Do you have an email or dropbox account I can send them to? You can decide if you want to create memorials for them (I don't have the time!!! :)

I have posted your requested photos and added virtual flowers. I had to remove the flowers from Jenni's stone in order to see her name. I put them back in their container, of course. As to your question as to other near by family members, please contact me at my address for my answer. You may use these photos however you like.

Thank you
Thank you for the time you have put into posting these. I am the daughter of Anthony Bucaro Sr and love that I can trace the family history having recently lost our youngest brother to cancer I am finding comfort in seeing all that have gone before him and I know he's in good company.

Your sister and mother
What beautiful tributes to your mom and sister. Your mother's photo came up while I was doing a search and she had such a sweet face I wanted to learn more about her. I then connected to your sister. I lost my mother after a year long battle of what started out as lung cancer, then became pancreatic. Luckily her battle was short and relatively easier than most stories I've heard, but in the end, as her caregiver, I knew that each day was bringing us closer to goodbye, at least here on earth. It was the most painful process, and after almost 3 years, I still am learning how to live without her at my side.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful tributes. My heart goes out to you and I send you a hug from out here in the world (in AZ).

Much love to you.

Hi Patti,

I have transferred them over to you, and you are very welcome. I'm always happy to transfer if I can. Please let me know of any others that you would want to manage. Have a very happy weekend!
