Bio Photo "I love dead people. In fact, I come from a long line of dead people." --from the comic 'Empowered' by Adam Warren

PLEASE BE PATIENT. I HAVE BEEN BOTH BUSY AND DEALING WITH A CHRONIC ILLNESS AND HAVE BEEN SLOW ON REPLIES.

If I manage the memorial of a family member or friend of yours, I'll be pleased to transfer. It's so exciting to find things you are looking for! :)

It annoys me when people here treat memorials like their personal property - like memorials are trading cards to collect and hoard. ಠ_ಠ You know the ones! These memorials are the property of Find A Grave. We are just caretakers.

I am *always* happy to transfer, except when the person is my own relative (and no one is closer) or ones I have a special interest in. Even those I will pass on to a relative of any distance.

I have even transferred to non-relatives with a special interest in the deceased.

Some helpful resources:

Re: Erie St. Cemetery...I was told the following: "Unfortunately, a majority of the markers in Erie Street Cemetery are either not there, or are so weathered they are unreadable. Any grave that had a marker that was readable has already been uploaded to their respective memorial pages on Findagrave."

Cleveland Necrology File (many typos) and Cleveland News Index: http://newsindex.cpl.org


Cleveland Catholic Cemeteries Association:
http://www.clecem.org/
They are currently putting all records online. As of 9/15, the following cemeteries are done - All Saints (Northfield); All Souls (Chardon); Resurrection (Valley City); Holy Cross (Akron); Holy Cross (Brook Park); and St. Joseph (Avon). Work is ongoing on the following cemeteries: Calvary (Cleveland); and Calvary (Lorain).

*************
PHOTO NOTE: I did not take the photos of Brooklyn Hts Cemetery in Cleveland. They were ALL originally transcribed and photographed by a very nice lady, Susanna Pretzer. She was completing a project to earn the Gold Award in Girl Scouts.
I checked with her, and have permission to post her photos and add the names. She said, "I definitely didn't know how physically and organizationally demanding it would be when I started, but that made it all the more satisfying...The idea was to get the information to the people who want it, so go for it. If it'll reach interested people who might not find it where it is currently online or in hard copy at the Western Reserve Historical Society, then it's good." --Thanks, Susanna!

Another note on PHOTOS: I give my permission to copy any photos I have taken for your own use or for another site. There are only a few -of thousands- that I have posted which I did not take personally. Just ask, please, so I make sure you are taking something I shot.

I just read the below you wrote and boy if that isn't the truth.

It annoys me when people here treat memorials like their personal property - like memorials are trading cards to collect and hoard. ಠ_ಠ You know the ones! These memorials are the property of Find A Grave. We are just caretakers.

I had some nasty people write me when I put something on their Find A Grave memorial. So I just made own as I found you can have more then one memorial. It did depress me very much that some people could be so nasty.

Keep up the good work. I wish Find A Grave would advertise as not many people know about it unless you are on Ancestry which I also do.

RE: Fr Vaclav A. Chaloupka
If you send me your address I can mail you a copy as I already made copies of the magazine. I guess I can scan but you would have to send me your email address.

I was also an altar boy and later sang in the choir for many years. I can recommend or maybe I do not have to as Nativity has a Face Book page but it is a closed group. Maybe you just have to mention my name to John Sabol. There are a real lot of pictures on there and of all the graduating classes. Also Kelly Island pictures.

Thanks, James Muke

Yes, I think I can identify your picture as I have the Nativity BVM 75th Year Magazine with all the priests from Nativity. I went to nativity my entire life until it was closed as did my parents, grandparents and great grandparents.

RE: Irma Louise Hotchkiss Karmol
Thanks for your note. I really just joined to post pics of Mom's headstone. I do appreciate your offer of assistance, and let me know if I can be of assistance here in the Toledo Area. I live quite close to several large Toledo cemeteries.

May I ask how you came to post the pics and information on my mother's grave?

Thanks for putting up the memorial to my mother, Irma Karmol. I have added pictures of the headstone that my brothers and sister put up after her death.
