Bio Photo "You Live As Long As You Are Remembered" Russian Proverb

It is an honor to help locate the final resting place of people I come across either in my own family research or while visiting cemeteries where I help to capture photographs of stones for families that do not live close enough to visit themselves. When I visit a cemetery, I photograph as many of the stones as I can so that one day, it may help someone see the inscription on a stone that may one day soon be illegible.

Each person within the pages of this site is someone important. I do not get caught up in "famous graves" because every person is just as important as the next and deserves to be celebrated and not to be forgotten. When I can determine family relations, I will add them and for some that a marker may have only a first name I try to find out who they were so that he or she can be remembered.

If you are related to an individual of a memorial I have posted (that is not one of my family memorials), I am more than happy to transfer that memorial to you if you contact me and request a transfer. I do not feel it is my place to maintain them if someone out there has a family relation.

I have been researching my family for over 14 years now. My family research includes:

In the areas of Fayette County, PA and NJ and Poland: RUSSIN, RUSIN, RUSSIAN, KIELBASA, KOLBASH, MALINSKY, YEZIORO, SANTELLO, GALIK

In Pennsylvania and England: SAMPLE, KINGDOM

In Greece: DASKALAKIS

Nathan Guerriere
Grave Question
Hello Keely,
My name is Nathan Guerriere. You have posted my relatives Augusto, Nicolina, and Clemente Guerrieri as being buried in St. Mary's Roman Catholic Cemetery in Brownsville, PA; however, I was unable to find them when i visited. I wonder if perhaps you meant St, Mary's cemetery in Cardale, PA. If you have any details on the matter please let me know! Thank you!

Can you please remove this memorial. This person is no longer in the cemetery as he was exumed and brought to Australia and is now buried here.

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy
==========================

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Aloysius Louis James Keteles
This soldier is now buried in Australia (a mystery) but apparently he was laid to rest in Hemment Cemetery in Brisbane Australia - Lawn 2 1381 and 1382 along side his Australian born wife who also died in US so I would say their children returned them both to Australia and now they rest together. My find-a-grave number for him is 147505571.
