If I posted a picture for a photo request, Please check the Caption on the photograph for more information. Especially if, there is a general lot shot from St Louis Calvary.

Don't you ever turn a photo over to see if anything is written on the back?

Please Read the Cemetery Main Page. Maybe they have an online burial search.

**Please do not leave--messages for edits on my the page, please use the Suggest a correction/Edit. This will provide an exact link to the memorial in question.

On July 8, 2017 I did a spread sheet upload that was added 4-6 times... not my fault, working on it. - I think that i have deleted all the excess, over 1400, yeah fun.

I will not add cut and paste Obituary's to anyone's page, see the Find a Graves rules. Be original. But I will posted the Newspaper, Date and page location. Nor will I add surviving family, per FaG guidelines.

I am still new to the whole genealogy thing. I have only been doing for about 20+ years. I am hoping that my children will continue the search.

If you want one of my photos, that is fine, but I Do Want Credit. - Site the Source.

Thank you.
Just another twig in the tree.

Myself and several others, including Elaine and Sharon, do most of the Photo requests for the St. Louis Calvary Cemetery. We share a google document to do this. We will typically look at every request. Which means - we will check to see if is duplicate, see if they are really buried there (see the archdiocese website) and then enter it onto the spreadsheet. Which is sorted usually by sections. It is a Very large cemetery (470 Acres 450,000 burials, and 27 miles of roads), so we do sometime wait until there are more than one request in that section.

Most, but not all, have already been added into Find a grave by TVFTH, Katie, Sharon or myself. BTW, they are terrible spellers/ transcribers, so be creative. For the most part they are/were added originally, according to how the Archdioceses spelled their name. Death dates that are just Month and year are based off of the persons burial date.--

Sections 5 & 16, and all their lots, do not have maps, so those have to be walked, but they were VERY sparsely marked. And none of us like them because so few are marked, so it actually makes it very difficult.
-Section 10 is done, there are only maybe 20 stones. ---Section 37 are re-internments from Washington Park Cemetery, so all there "death" dates are actually there re-interment dates, as we get photo request we adjust their death dates to their true death dates.

Interment numbers don't mean anything. They were added with a computer update, and they are working on another one, which could change those numbers. The original records don't use them, they are in date/alphabetical order.

Then we each have our favorite sections to do. If you have any questions about St Louis Calvary I will be happy to try to answer it. If I don't know, I will try to find the answer for you.

Happy Hunting :)

RE: Pernot @ StL Calvary
Thanks for the photo of the area where Louisa Pernot is buried. I requested a photo of the headstone for Joseph E. Pernot, who has a memorial.

His wife Louise Unknown was b. 1853, and was still living in St. Louis in 1900, per the US Census, and was listed in the 1903 St. Louis city directory, so she can't be the Louisa Pernot buried in the area you photographed. This memorial lists a death date of 1889.

You've helped me before on this cemetery, hope you can get back there for a photo of Joseph Emile Pernot's headstone.

I had hoped his wife would be buried nearby, confirming the burial so I could create a memorial for her, but the Archdiocese web site has no record of her burial in any of their seven cemeteries between 1900 and 1940.

RE: Eng@ Stl Calvary
Thank you so very much for the photo for Sr Mary Juliana "Gertrude" Kliemann and for letting me know. I did not have her birth date or the date she entered the Convent. Her sister, Anna Kliemann Gentemann was related to me by marriage as her husband was my 1st cousin 3x removed. I get carried away with my tree :)
Thank you again!!!

RE: Photo Requests
Kathie, Thanks for letting me know the proper way to make a request, since this is my first time using the website. I made separate requests for each photo.
