I am in the process of photo-documenting Sts. Peter & Paul cemetery in St. Louis. IF I HAVE POSSESSION OF A GRAVE OF YOUR FRIEND OR RELATIVE, I AM HAPPY TO TRANSFER THE GRAVE TO YOU. PLEASE USE THE "EDIT/SEND A CORRECTION" LINKS AND PROVIDE YOUR MEMBER NUMBER (located next to your name on your member page). If you are aware of errors in any of my entries, please let me know. |
PLEASE NOTE: Because I receive a lot of email, I typically do not reply when sent an edit - just check back in a couple days and you should see it. I usually make edits within a couple days. If it has been over a week, please resend as I may not have received it.
In addition to adding my family, I enter other graves. I am always happy to transfer a grave to a family member, or to update the grave as requested.
Families I am researching for my family include Mueth, Heidenfelder, Bockius, Buehler, Danneman, Frank/Franck, Freymyer, Meurer and Zieger--primarily found in the U.S. in St. Louis and Southern Illinois.
On my husband's side, I am researching Torrence, Findley, Watt, Comstock, Peterson, Norton, Brown, Bieth, Sentman, Ritchie and Sixbury--from all over the Northeast.
Copied from another member's site:
I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them.

You gave me a web site to get my family death certificate and I have misplaced it. Please send again. This time I will put in code book.
|Bob Collins||RE: Peter Ritchie in GreenWood|
By all means, share the research. The page manager can then do the family links.

Thank you for your photo and all your hard work. I made this memorial and many others from obits posted to rootsweb by Mary Stigler. I referenced this on many memorial but didn't include the actual obit. Now I get tons of request for the obits from researchers so I am kind of back tracking and adding them in the bios.
Wish we had more hours in a day.

Thank you for your so very quick response and taking a photo of where Louise Max is put to rest. It is good to know her grave is unmarked. I was so hoping to find out some information.
I appreciate your work Katie! Thank you!

|Mona Williamson||RE: Lizetta Carnon|
You are quite welcome. I suspect the reason I didn't attach a photo of the headstone was because it was a bad photo. I normally take a few hundred photos at a time from a cemetery then come home and enter the data here from the photos. Arlene Shuster has claimed the photo request so you should be getting a photo posted soon (she takes good photos).
