|Bryan Fields||Miachel Maniacci photo request|
Greetings - Calvary Cemetery isn't very cooperative in looking up grave locations to Find-A-Grave photography volunteers - they'll only do 3 at a time and recently cut me off from asking for any more locations. I was trying to add locations for the very large backlog of photo reqs for the cemetery; there's over 400 requests. Those that include the grave plot get photographed first, so I'd recommend that you add that info to the Find-A-Grave memorial page. Call 216-641-7575 for the cemetery office; they'll provide you 3 locations without charging you for them.

sent photos; please confirm receipt.
|Bronx Aquarian||Absolom Sargis|
In the location you have given for Oakland Cemetery in Yonkers, NY there is a double grave for Sargis. However the names are David (29 Jan 1888-22 Mar 1965) and Julia (22 Feb 1900 - ). It is probable that Absolom is buried there without his name engraved on the stone which was installed much later than his death. I have pictures for David & Julia if you want. There is no other Absolom within the entire Maple section.

Just a friendly mid June reminder that we need plot info to fill your Cleveland Calvary request(s). We have less than 500 requests left but plot info for only 6% of those, having already filled the rest with plot info. We can't ask for plot info for more than 3 requests per week. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot info. We'd really appreciate it and will fill your request(s) soon after getting plot info. Thank you!

Not trying to nag, just FYI that we've cleared over 250 requests this spring and now have 600 requests—fewer than there were in June, 2012. We'd be happy to clear your request(s) but some/all do not have plot information. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot information. We most likely already have a plot map but will let you know once we have plot info if we also need a map. Thanks!

You've put in request(s) at Calvary in Cleveland. Several of us are working to clear the more than 750 requests. With 400,000 burials and 300 acres, if you could please obtain plot information for the one request without plot info AND a plot map for that one as well one of us will be more likely to be able to fill the request, as the office will only give out a little information to each person. The office phone number is (216) 641-7575. On my page I have the plot maps listed that we already have.
You can try to tell them you'll be visiting when they're closed, etc. So far everyone who's called has been successful in having a map mailed. If you get one let me know and I'll give you my e-mail address. With thousands of graves per section a plot map would be VERY helpful. Without plot information it's basically impossible.
Just FYI, we'll need this info for your one request without plot info. For the two with plot info, section 59 is very difficult to navigage. 50 is huge as it was used during the influenza epidemic. This will be difficult to fill but one of us will try:)

If you add plot #s to memorials that you have photo requests for, I will try to take & post them before the snow flies.
