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.

92913667 Ngo Dinh Thi Hiep
Hello there,

I believe you have the name on this memorial in an incorrect format and order. Also, using Vietnamese characters makes it harder for people to search for the names unless they are using the proper format, as well as some browsers and email carriers do not support Vietnamese characters.

Hiep is the first name, Thi is the middle name, Dinh Ngo is the last name. The Westerners have the habit of using the last name as the first name, which is incorrect. In Viet Nam, the names are backward, but since this website is in English, the names should be reversed. For instance, Ho Chi Minh is actually Minh Chi Ho; Ngo Dinh Diem is actually Diem Dinh Ngo; Vo Nguyen Giap is actually Giap Nguyen Vo. Also, "Elisabeth" is not a Vietnamese name, that is a baptismal name bestowed upon Catholic Vietnamese and is not formally used unless it relates to church matters or upon their death when it is usually added before the name of the decedent on a gravestone.

Hopefully this helps and you will reconsider revising the name on this memorial.

I have added around 59 priests buried at Gap Road Cemetery in Wimbledon, who I believe were all based at the Society of Jesus at Wimbledon College.

Fr John Morris
The gravestone for John Morris was one of 5 which included the names of several priests on each headstone. I will start to add some of these.

RE: Mt. Zion Catholic Cemetery Jerusalem
Hi Eman,
I posted an additional picture for Fathers Bagatti and Fr. Geiser, and also one of the gate of the private cemetery which I hope that findagrave will approve.
I hope to find where the graves of the other priests whose pictures you requested, are buried. I will let you know .. along with the pictures of the graves if I can get them.
Best regards from Jerusalem,

Mt. Zion Catholic Cemetery Jerusalem
Hi Eman,
Fathers Baldi, Lemaire. Orfali and Soudah are not buried in the private priest cemetery with the other five priests whose grave pictures I took. I will check this coming week with an archivist whose name I was given to see where they are buried, and if close by I will try to get the pictures.
In the meantime I could only upload one grave picture for some of the memorials as the photo limit had been reached.
Best regards

Please find out as much info as you can about the location of the stone. I was there today 12/23/2016 and it was tough to find stones. There wasn't an office or anyone on the property and for some reason all of the street/lot signs were painted over in black. I will try again another time.
