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.

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.

St. Louis Archdiocese Burial Search

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 :)

Thanks for the picture. It is disappointing to search and not find a stone, (I've done this many times, too) but nice to be able to know that there is none. Thanks!

thanks for going through all the trouble to find out the grave is unmarked. That is a tough situation, looking for something only to find that is doesn't have a noticeable marker. I appreciate the time and effort you put forth
