1. St. Vincent DePaul of Girardville
2. St. Louis/Our Lady of Siluva of Maizeville
3. New Holy Rosary/H.R., Maizeville/Frackville (Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Maizeville was closed due to a mine shaft collapse under it as of 6/30/1988 making the structure unsafe. Records transferred as of that date to St. Joseph Church, Girardville. May now be with Girardville Historical Society, St. Charles Borromeo (formerly St. Joseph), Ashland, or Allentown Dioceses, undetermined.)
4. *Old and New St. Joseph of Frackville
Many may be associated w/the Foot patches/towns/sections of Girardville to Mahanoy Plane, Gilberton, Maizeville. Also those along Girardville to Shenandoah a possibility such as Lost Creek, Raven Run, Colorado, Upper/Lower Wm. Penn/Shaft, others. SOME PATCHES NO LONGER EXIST DUE TO EXTENSIVE MINING. Best to check ALTAMONT section, Frackville of OLD H.R. and OLD St. Joe's FIRST for BURIALS from THESE CHURCHES, then Englewood. There are other CEMS located in ENGLEWOOD section, these get most attention, as does Annunciation B.V.M. due to the prior land issues.
!2014: Information for Old and New St. Joseph Cemeteries of Frackville (from parish office)- BOTH are located in ENGLEWOOD section, as is NEW Holy Rosary Cemetery. Only OLD Holy Rosary is located in Altamont section, BUT:
BOTH O.H.R. and Old St. Joseph TRANSCRIBED as located in Altamont by SVR. Burial locations for memorials listed by me in Altamont taken from SVR and photos are true to location. (St. Joseph was a satellite of Old H. R. originally).

Geisinger Medical Center also has satellite systems within Schuylkill, surrounding counties and throughout N.E. Pa.
LAST: Pine Grove, Schuylkill Co. is not Pine Grove Mills, Centre Co., Pa. AND Butler Twp., Schuylkill Co. not to be confused with Butler Twp., Luzerne Co., Pa.
Locust Dale is also found as Locustdale, lies within Butler Twp., Schuylkill Co. and a small section in Conynygham Twp., Columbia Co. Both spellings are accepted as accurate. It is not to be confused with Locust, Indiana Co., Pa.
Edits made as rec'd. I've no problem w/added death certificates, they may be only record of a loved one, esp. children between censuses. SAME FOR MEMORIALS, ANY INFO THAT CAN BE READ OFF OF THEM SHOULD BE ADDED BEFORE IT'S FOREVER LOST.
!Currently having internet issues, if edits or msgs. are not addressed immediately please take this into account. I will get to them as I am able. Thanks for patience and understanding. 10/15/2019
