Bio

I will transfer anyone I'm not directly related to. If you find a family member please ask for a memorial transfer by sending as an EDIT. Please do not ask by sending a message. For details please see the findagrave rules.

The Church of the Assumption Catholic Cemetery in Richfield houses many generations of my ancestors, cousins, and allied families and I have a particular affinity to this cemetery. I have uploaded photographs of all the tombstones and transcribed those (not already transcribed) using Catholic Interment Records (1886-1930). I have tried to add portraits to everyone for whom I have a photograph (individual, couple, or family) as well as add biographies or link family members. Please feel free to contact me about any of these people for more information or to add your own.

Recently I have finished transcribing the Priest's interment records 1864-1943 and creating memorials for Calvary Cemetery, Ramsey Co., Minnesota . This is an important record as many of the early decedents (especially children) do not have death certificates or tombstones. Please feel free to edit or ask for transfers. Burials which were not Catholic were recorded here in the first few years but mostly are not in these records (sometime before about 1880 nonCatholic burials cease). Please use creativity when searching, as these records are in English, Latin, and German. Some of the names were spelled variously even within the same record. These records were made by German speaking priests. Other records likely exist from other Priests, non-Catholic burials, etc. and are not in my possession.

A lot of people email me to ask about these priests interment records. They come from the Church of the Assumption microfilm which used to be available for purchase from the Diocese of St. Paul. Unfortunately, the Diocese no longer allows anyone to view them. For $30 you can request three documents. https://www.archspm.org/archives-and-records/ Because I think this is tragic, I have spent years transcribing and uploading the information to findagrave. All legible genealogical information in the documents has been transcribed. The years continue after 1943 but become from so many different cemeteries plus death records are available so I have chosen to stop transcribing. These records do not come from a database and are not available elsewhere except through the Diocese of St. Paul.
