RE: St. Vincent Gilboy Family

Been thinking of you; I hope you had a blessed Easter!My cousins posted photos of your somewhat recent snowfall, so I believe spring is slow arriving in the Valley. Jersey is a bit psychitzophrenic- warm in the day time and freezing at night.

As always, I want to thank you for your kind assistance in providing pictures of the relatives' tombstones. Just did a quick search of Ancestry , Pa Death certificates and Newspapers (dot) com and came up empty on Frank and Loretta. I know they will be fine in your capable hands and I'll be sure to send edits if I find more information.

Until next time, be well,

Do you have GPS coordinates for this cemetery?

Just wanted to drop you a note and say hello. The weather here is perfect for graving and hope the Wyoming Valley is as well.

Best wishes,

Thanks so much for placing the headstone photos for these two names in Sacred Heart Cemetery in or near Dallas, PA, a place I've never had the privilege to seeing. These are grandparents of a good friend, and it is wonderful to see their headstone photos made available for public view.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for adding the memorial for Michael L Godek (128211878). He was my friend's father and I will be linking her to him.

I think Mr. Godek was cremated and I believe his daughter (Margaret Ann) paid for the marker at the cemetery.

Margaret's mother (1st wife of Michael) passed in the late 1960's, maybe 1967 or 1968. Her name was Margaret Barbara (Kanora)Godek. If you should happen to come across her grave, please add it to

Thanks again!

Wanda N.

RE: photo request
Hi Paul, thank you for keeping me in mind. From the looks of other peeps requests, they been up there awhile, so I don't think anybody is rushing to get in line. I thought of you and finding my where the unmarked graves are for St Johns. Even though where grandma Bronislava is not exsact, at least I kow what the grave would look it.

Sounds like fun, been there, done that. Do I see a garage sale in your future. I used to have a lot of stuff that was in attics, rubber maid tubs, closets. My roommate Annette is a collector of STUFF, she has enough pens, pencile's, paper to fill 6 class rooms in africa LOL. Unless somebody claims my requests, I'll keep you posted. Have a great weekend Paul.

photo request
Hi Paul, are you still taking cemetery photo's. You found a unmarked gr HS for my grandma a few years at St John the baptist in Dallas. I was wondering if you go to St Hedwigs and Casimir. I don't think I'm gonna get any bites for photo request

I lucked out on one, the lady had the photo of Andrew Simciek in her pile # 131864754 from St Hedwig. but none for Joseph Simchick # 131864936.

I found another rtellie at St Casimir, Catherine Zelinski Mallo # 32625999. Ancestry released death certif's for PA, I was surprise to even fine those. If your out and about, I sure would be greatfull to have these HS photo and as always thanks for time doing findagrave. Marie

Cywinski Family tombstones, St. Stan's Cem., Nanticoke, PA.
Hello, Paul! WOW: I am utterly, tremendously, ecstatically impressed and thrilled by the tombstone/plot pictures you took and posted! You did an EXCEPTIONAL, AMAZING job, that touches me more than I can fully express, as I'd been wishing for years I could see those stones, but never was able to, and now can see them ALL! And, incidentally, you did a FANTASTIC job on the GREAT picture-taking, each shot being so clear and crisp and looking absolutely terrific! I feel like I've not only won the lottery today, but been able to visit that cemetery and those graves and see them in person! Not to mention the pictures you've so considerately and generously taken and posted have provided me with significantly tweaked family details (some adjusted name spellings and years, but details appearing for at least one family member, Alice, that will enable me to create a memorial for her now) that I'd not have been aware of were I not able to see what's inscribed on the various stones. This all is TERRIFIC stuff - and I 100% have YOU to thank, wholeheartedly! You're a true Find A Grave star standout, my friend! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Pardon my profuse gushing, but I'm so thrilled that it can't be helped! God bless you, and very best regards, Dave Wilson, Seaford, DE PS: I own the original photographic studio portrait of Cywinski Family patriarch Andrzej "Andrew" (who was the closest-in-age sibling of my nee-Cywinski Lewandowski g-grandmother), as his youngest child Albina left it to me several years ago, upon her death. It's a great treasure of mine, hanging prominently to the right of where I'm sitting right now, and I know that Andrew would also be profoundly grateful to you right now if he were around to know the wonderful contribution you've made to the preservation of his marriage family's memory.

Brodzinski tombstones/plot photos.
Hello, Paul! TREMENDOUS thanks to you for being so wonderful as to locate and photograph the plot and individual stones in the Brodzinski plot in St. Stanislaus Cem., Nanticoke! Those are the first Cywinski Family tombstones/plot pictures I've to date seen for any of my relatives who are buried in that cemetery, so am thrilled to now be able to see and have those, and have YOU to thank for that! You're WONDERFUL!!! Stefania "Sarah" was one of my grandfather's 1st cousins. Most of her several immediate Cywinski family members are also buried in that cemetery, though I don't know whether their graves are close to hers or in a different perhaps older area(s). If you happen to ever spot any of them (I've submitted tombstone photo requests for each of the decedents I know is interred there, for in the same cemetery), I'll be eternally grateful. Again, abundant thanks to you! I live in southern Delaware, so would have never gotten up to that cemetery myself. Best regards, Dave Wilson (a Cywinski descendant, via a sister of Stefania's father)

Thank you so much for adding the photo of Margie's marker. She was one of my dearest friends and you have helped me to honor her as the 5th anniversary of her passing approaches.

RE: Photo Requests
Hi Paul,
Thanks for all your tramping around Luzerne county! I'm in the middle of moving and I haven't been on line in over a week. Weather here has been nice ( except for the rain yesterday) and I really want to go graving. Hope you are well.

Anna Emerick
Hi Paul,
The burial locations on both Anna and John Emerick's memorials should be correct: Anna at Dallas PA and John at Binghamton NY. I took out the statement in the bio section of Anna's memorial that mentioned where her husband was buried. Sorry for the confusion. Sharyl

RE: transfers
Thank you again for transferring my great-grandparents! Plan to add some bios within the next month or two! Can you transfer some great aunts and uncles? They are: Janet Basarab (75107117), Helen Bialogowicz (71336341), Frank Parulski (71020050), Konstanty Parulski (71336078), Victoria Parulski (75614125), Frank Proski, Jr. (71021104), Bridget Redinski (75614256), and Stephanie Redinski (75614297). That should be enough to maintain for a while! I'll get their spouses and children in a month or so!

transferring a grave
Paul,you have done a wonderful job on the photos at Good Shephard Cemetary in Nanticoke. My name is Steph Pritchett and I was wondering if you could transfer my grandparents to me. They are Helen Parulski #75614000 and Stanley Parulski, #75614071. I'm fairly new to this procedure, so keep up the good work until then! Thank you in advance...

RE: Chalker
Thank you! Well I'm helping a friend whose family married into mine. Maybe you could hold on to the Chalker memorials in case their relatives want to request ownership. You've helped us so much. It's amazing how much info you can get from a simple photograph. Thanks again!!
