I am a criminal law paralegal and researcher by profession.
I can do photos for Calvary Cemetary here in Long Island City, Greenpoint Avenue (Calvary 1 or Old Calvary), also known as the St. Calixtus Division. It is difficult for me to do Calvary 2, 3 or 4.
Calvary uses locations by Section, Range or Avenue, Plot and Grave. All 4 pieces of information must appear on the memorial in the section for grave location when you make a photo request so that it appears on the photo request as well. Please call, with name and date of death, 718-786-8000, to obtain the information which MUST be in the section of the memorial.
Any pictures I take contain no restrictions on their usage. You may copy and use my photos without my express permission, or share them. I do appreciate credit for the photos if used on another site, though it is not necessary to contact me. I do put up photos of the correct Calvary 1 entrance; you can delete those if you do not want them included. This applies to Calvary in New York. The stock photo is not of the Old Calvary entrance.
I accept transfer requests for family members regardless of the generation in which they belong in your family line.
If I add a photo that you want taken down, if you cannot remove it, I will remove it for you. Feel free to e-mail me; it's faster as it will go to my phone.
Note: Because I am caretaking an ill family member, I have had to put photo requests on hold. I may try to do a weekend trip to Calvary 1 when I have help.
