Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a criminal law paralegal and researcher by profession.

I can do photos for Calvary Cemetary here in Long Island City, Greenpoint Avenue (Calvary 1 or Old Calvary), also known as the St. Calixtus Division. It is difficult for me to do Calvary 2, 3 or 4.

Calvary uses locations by Section, Range or Avenue, Plot and Grave. All 4 pieces of information must appear on the memorial in the section for grave location when you make a photo request so that it appears on the photo request as well. Please call, with name and date of death, 718-786-8000, to obtain the information which MUST be in the section of the memorial.

Any pictures I take contain no restrictions on their usage. You may copy and use my photos without my express permission, or share them. I do appreciate credit for the photos if used on another site, though it is not necessary to contact me. I do put up photos of the correct Calvary 1 entrance; you can delete those if you do not want them included. This applies to Calvary in New York. The stock photo is not of the Old Calvary entrance.

I accept transfer requests for family members regardless of the generation in which they belong in your family line.

If I add a photo that you want taken down, if you cannot remove it, I will remove it for you. Feel free to e-mail me; it's faster as it will go to my phone.

Note: Because I am caretaking an ill family member, I have had to put photo requests on hold. I may try to do a weekend trip to Calvary 1 when I have help.

LaTorre Grave in Calvary
HI Barbara
I deleted the photos that I have on the memorials for Antonio Latorre and his wife Giacomina. I put in two photo requests so that when you get the photo of the portrait on their headstone, you can get credit for both. You may as well take of picture of their headstone, too, as long as you are going there...BTW, a few days ago, I replaced one of the pictures I took for you at St. Boniface. I wasn't happy with the afternoon shadow, so I retook it.

Antonio La Torre
Hi Barbara
I recently took pictures for you at St. Boniface in Elmont. I wonder if you could return the favor when you get to Old Calvary. I'd like a photo of the portrait on the grave of Antonio and Giacomina La Torre. Section 4B, Range 19, Plot E, Grave 4. Someone took a picture for me but did not get a close up of the portrait and the resolution was not high enough so it is blurry. I know that the tile is cracked, but that's ok. It can be photoshopped....Section 4B is near the BQE. It's the section where the Godfather was filmed. There is a large area of unmarked graves (where the film crew set up) then there are marked graves close to the expressway. The grave I want is in those graves near the expressway. Thanks for your help... when the weather gets warmer, that is.

Thanks for reporting the lack of location. I am in the Philippines and have tried calling them at various times but so far I can not get a hold of them. Happy New Year!

RE: Skrzypek St. Boniface
Those two graves couldn't have be farther apart in the cemetery. Your two aunts were in the back on the right and your grandparents were in the front on the left. But it was such a nice day that I took a long stroll to look for them. Happy New Year to you and yours. Glad to have helped.
