|Bio and Links|
|I encountered Find A Grave years ago while surfing the net one day on some Hollywood greats, when I came across Clark Gable's memorial. Getting interested in the photos featured, I started browsing names and there they were: Fernandel, David Niven, Rita Hayworth...I was impressed to see such a keen index of so many deceased persons, even though at that time it amounted to only a couple of thousands!|
Although I kept visiting the site from time to time, I did not join in immediately as a member. When I did, I used to leave a couple of messages, but creating memorials seemed a bit difficult. The first one came following the death of my Great Aunt, Sr. Teresa Orlando rscj., in 2002.
Eventually, FAG became for me a special point of reference. It did take me quite a time to collect all the information posted here, especially when it relates all the biographies featured. Naturally, in order to be able to present here all these profiles and photos, I have been in touch across the years, with several dioceses, provinces, and archive collections from all over the world. Naming all the sources is virtually impossible, but I have to mention Mr. Salvador Miranda, creator of "The Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church" Digital Resource.
Researchers might find a number of interesting profiles in my entries, including a full Necrology of all the late members of the Mid-West Augustinian Province and the Western Dominican Province, which I added across the years thanks to the great support and help received from Brother Thomas Taylor OSA., and the late Father Fabian Stan Parmisano OP., (1926 - 2009). Other entries include all the Dominican Friars interred at Rosaryville, Ponchatoula, Louisiana. These Friars belonged to the Midwestern Dominican Province of the USA. Most of the Dominican Friars affiliated with this Province buried at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines, Illinois, can be also found in another Virtual Cemetery of mine.
I always try to remember people who in their humbleness worked and took care of many, in silence, for whom history has left little or no space. Hoping you might find some of the memorials to your interest, I wish above all, that they might be also appreciated by others or remembered in prayers.

|KathleenALC||1st Cousin-3x removed-"Mark" Brother Peter Haberlin OFM|
Hi, Thank you for all of the work you do adding humble servants of God to F.A.G. I never knew of this relative until my grandma died. I grew up in Santa Barbara. I must've visited the Mission over 100 times not knowing I had a relative who served there and was buried in their cemetery! My Great-Grandma,(hidden fact being unmarried)single parent Mary Bridget Haberlin (1882-1939) and her daughter, Mary Kathleen Haberlin Lazzo (1911-1991) immigrated to America in 1928 from Guernsey, Channel Island of England. Now I understand why they settled in Santa Barbara, CA they had a relative there, Brother Peter! He seemed like a good person and had a sense of humor. He must've " kissed the Blarney Stone". His interview and stories are fun...he ran away from his brother's home (so he wouldn't talk him out of it) to persue his vocation, predicted the 1925 earthquake, caught robbers...I've added some photos and information;'since I'm a relative I was able to go back to the Massoleum. Oh, by the way, his status may be considered "famous" since he's the last of the old order of Franciscans-The Grey Friars. He was on the cover of the Historical Society publication. I was surprised that the Santa Barbara Mission staff all know of him!
|Maude Sculco Grima||Friar Ġann Franġisk Grima|
My name is Maude Grima and I am married to Anthony Grima. His Father was Antonio Grima born 1894 in Senglea, Malta. His parents were Antonio and Maria Teresa Zerafa from Senglea, Malta also. I heard that he had a brother who was a priest and was wondering if you happen to know whether Friar Ġann Franġisk Grima is their other son? Would love to know if you could help me since you have done work with the cemetery. Divine Mercy Cemetery
San Pawl il-Bahar
Plot: Cemetery Chapel.
Thank you in advance if you are able to help me.

|Bob Hufford||Two Cardinals|
I transferred two Princes of the Church to you...Find a Grave changed them from Famous to Non-Famous, though I have no idea why...
I transfered Cardinal Dias to you. Maybe you will have better luck getting him as famous. For some reason, my bio was denied. Unless, Cardinals are no longer considered famous.

My Pleasure - I just had to wait for the Chapel to be opened. It is opened *very* infrequently so I took a chance on Memorial day and it was open!
