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.

* I recently had to change my findagrave email please use the new one of

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 15+ 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. I however would prefer that they are not added to Ancestry. I know the rules have changed to allow 'sharing within the Ancestry bubble' but really people, give credit - Site the Source.

Thank you.

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 400,000 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. 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.

Internment numbers dont 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 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 so much for finding and photographing Ben & Mary Feder Pollack's headstones. I don't suppose you know how to read Hebrew, do you?

I appreciate you!

RE: Margaret Curran, Calvary
Although I appreciate the reply, it is rude. No, I did not think of that way, and have never seen it done that way by anyone. Usually, if there is no headstone, there is not one posted and a message to that effect is on the memorial. If that is your way of doing things, explain it on the memorial so others understand it too and we don't bother you asking. Thank you.

Margaret Curran, Calvary
Memorial #52256393

This memorial has the wrong photo attached. Margaret was married to Clarence, but there are two Clarence Curran's also in the cemetery and the photos are not correct on those either. Trying to get family linked up correctly. A correct photo for Margaret might be helpful. thanks
