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 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. Photography is relaxing for I take photos and add them. There is cemetery that I am working on that across the street from my children's school.

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.

Please remember, when you start researching a new geographic area, that those living in the area, probably know more than you, but there are some that don't. Like St. Louis City and St. Louis County are very separate, but very connected. Please look at an actual map that has city and county boarders, that is dated for that era, NOT a current map. For example, much of what is warehouses now by river, used to be housing.

Thank you.
Just another twig in the tree.

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 :)

Thank you so much for the wonderful photo in Calvary Cemetery.

I know this request was extremely difficult for you and I appreciate your efforts and all you do.

The memorial now looks complete.

Best wishes

RE: David Seslen (Beth Hamedrosh Hagodol Cemetery)

Yes, it makes perfect sense to make changes that way. If I have any other photo change requests I will funnel them through the SAC method.

Please delete your grave marker photo on this page. I have uploaded a clearer grave marker image with complete engraving.

Hi Kathie,

Thank you for updating Anna Wolff's memorial page. She is not the Anna Wolff I was looking for, but could be a cousin of sorts through marriage. Your posted information is helpful! Best regards, JK
