Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an American living in Europe for the past 18 years..presently in northern Italy. European graveyards are so interesting! Many of the gravestones have old photos on them...many are very elaborate and sometimes they have stories on them. I love any excuse to take off on a weekend and go exploring...and finding old family relatives for you! Italy, France, Croatia, Slovenia or Austria are all within easy reach. Ciao...Sandy

would you do me a favor?
Hi again. I wrote to Find A Grave and asked that they remove the photo at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=64768879&PIpi=16559090

(It's the one that says it was added by SKY--but you said that you actually did not add it. I can't take it off--only SKY can.) Since Find A Grave didn't remove it upon my request, perhaps if YOU ask them--tell them that it's added in your name but you didn't post it--maybe then they'll remove it.

The church it pictures does not bear the same name as the cemetery and is not related to the cemetery. And the car isn't important either.

The address to use is photo@findagrave.com . Be sure to include the link above.

If you can do this, I'd be very grateful.

cemetery photo 64768879
That's really weird that the photo is credited to you! I do appreciate your getting back to me. It will just have to remain a mystery, I guess. :-)

church photograph

Hello SKY! May I ask a favor? You posted a photo of the church on the memorial above. Would you be terribly offended if I ask you to remove it? The page is maxed out with photos, and I'd like to add a picture of the family. Since this photo doesn't depict either Grandma or her grave, it is the one most easily "sacrificed." Thank you! I do hope you understand.
PS. I envy your ready access to the beautiful countries you mention in your bio!

RE: RE Headstone on George Tousley
Sorry I didn't get your request for other Tousleys. There is quite a group of them together at Mound Cemetery. I was out there to fulfill further requests this afternoon.

Celestine Walsh
I wanted to let you know that I have combed the area around all of the Beaudreaus for Celestine and have been unable to locate her grave. I also looked the one Walsh family I found and no luck there either. This next week I am going to call the cemetery office and see if they can help me out.

RE: re Victoria Barthelemy Durupt Grave
I thought I sent them but who knows. I have been so busy of late I could be wrong.

Peter P. Durupt APR. 29, 1887-Aug. 16, 1959
Victoria H. Durupt Dec. 12, 1889- Oct. 2, 1959
Alfred J. Durupt Aug.19, 1888-Feb. 21, 1960
Alexander L. Durupt Nov. 19 1884-Oct. 22, 1969
Paul P. Durupt June 29, 1851- Aug. 30, 1921
Josephine M. Durupt Feb. 19th 1856-Mar. 15,1921

It was hard to decipher Josephine's birthdate even live in person. That part of the stone was very hard to read. I figured it out by running my fingers over the stone. You might have better records on her that might give a more accurate year of birth. Those were the Durupts that I have found thus far. If I can help further please just let me know. I would be more than happy to help.

RE: re Victoria Barthelemy Durupt Grave
It does show 1830 for birth and 1901 as year of death. I was nervous in adding this one sisce there was a difference with birth year. I figured since it was buried next to Laurence(and yes his stone says Laurence and not Laurent) and the same year of death it had to be her. I am sorry I pulled the grass back as far as I could but that edge kept flopping back over. I didn't know another way to take it without my hand being in the picture. Here are the names of the other Durupts I found. Let me know if you are interested in them. I am pretty sure they are all in one family. Let me know. If you aren't interested in them I will just post them myself.
