Bio and Links
Bio Photo Still living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where most of my ancestors have lived. My passion for genealogy drives me to help others find their roots. Please feel free to contact me whether family or genealogy searcher.
In 2007 when searching for Kocinski headstones, I decided to document old cemeteries on the South Side of Pittsburgh. Below are the current list of cemeteries I have completely documented.
St. Adalbert's Cemetery on Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, Carrick, Pennsylvania started May 2007 and finished November 2007.
--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Adalbert's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after May 2007, may not be listed.
St Josephat's Cemetery on Glass Run Road, Pittsburgh (Baldwin), Pennsylvania started April 2009 and finished May 2009.
--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Josephat's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after April 2009 may not be listed.
Loretto Cemetery on Devlin Street, Pittsburgh, South Side, Pennsylvania started in May 2009 and finished August 2009.

Story from contributor Phyllis Seaman-Eckert about her aunt who died at age 2 and burial location:
There are graves down over the hill at the 1st part of the circle. Apparently, many children were buried down there. In fact, we were always able to locate her grave because it was near a rather large above-ground structure for a Spanish or Mexican child.

--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Josephat's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after August 2009 may not be listed.
St Peter's Cemetery on Arlington Avenue, Pittsburgh, Mt Oliver, Pennsylvania started in August 2009 and finished September 2009.

--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Peter's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after September 2009 may not be listed.
St Michael's Cemetery on 18th Street, Pittsburgh, South Side Pennsylvania started in September 2009 and not finished

George Buser
I know the dates are right but that proves really noting. Was George ever married to a Sarah Fairbank in McKeesport? I have her on my tree and this George is the only one I find that would fit. Could you contact me one way or another.

Thank you

Linda Morris

RE: parents change request is questionable
Roseanne: The name Joseph Brenkus I am adding is Joseph Theodore Brenkus. He was my brother. We had the same Father and Mother. They were: Joseph C. Brenkus and Margaret E. Brenkus. Where you got those other names I would like to know.

The date of death for Clemence is given in Find-a-Grave as Jun. 18, 1938 which is incorrect (kind of mixed-up with his discharge date). His headstone gives the date as 12 Oct 1938 as does his Death Certificate.

Would you kindly make the correction.

With my thanks,

Ralph Clouse, Sacramento

Franciska Schmitt's grave marker
Hello I was at the St. Peter's Cemetery South Side Pittsburgh, Allegheny County Pennsylvania. Franciska and Frederich Schmitt are my 2nd great grandparents and they do have a marker at this cemetery. It is a large marker but has faded and is hard to read unless you know the names you are looking for. I have a photo if you are interested.

Stephen and Sophie Duda
Would like to know if you are related to this couple buried at Saint Adalberts. Understand that Sophie was a Sophie Kowonski or Kalinoski and daughter of Mary Kowomski/Kalinoski b Poland 1873 and d Pittsburgh after 1940. Wanting to learn more about Stephen Duda parents, possibly John Duda and Mary Duda both born in Austria/Hungary and immigrated to US in 1901 and 1906 respectively, and resided in Pittsburgh. Possibly have a photo of this Stephen Duda as a young man. Thank you.
