Bio and Links
All photos of graves that I have posted were taken by me and may be copied freely and posted on other websites. There is no need to credit me or identify me when they are so used and no need to request permission beforehand. I won't be annoyed if you do anyway, but it really isn't necessary for the grave photos taken by me. Most photos of persons that I have posted were not taken by me. Please check the photo caption to determine the source (most often an obituary).

The photos were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera, which takes 4896x3672 (18M-pixel) images. The original JPG files are 6-7 MB in size. I then use GIMP, an open source image processing program that can be downloaded for free from, to rotate, crop and rescale the images. Usually I set the horizontal resolution to 1200 pixels, sometimes up to 1600 for panoramic scenes. I use a compression "quality" setting of 50 to 70, most often 60 to 65. The resulting picture files are usually 250 to 300 kB, with some up to 400 kB. Limiting the file size to that range allows snappy downloads when opening the image at full resolution.

nicolo orsetti
I received your email and have tried to transfer/delete the duplicate for Nicolo Orsetti (#130632175 and #130631372) but ga47 who manages the one site has their messages disabled and I am at a loss for what to do. Yes, they are one and the same and need to be combined. The ga47 site does not have the family information but yours does so anything you can do would be appreciated as it will eliminate any confusion on the part of those researching the Orsetti name. ALSO, I do not want and am unable to manage any sites so please do not transfer any to me.
Thank you for work excellent work and know it is truly appreciated by all!

M. Maddelena Quinto DiPace
Thanks for the info. The name was DiPace in Italy but spelled DePace in the US, as in Scott DePace, a great-great grandson who was a director for the Howard Stern Show. Daniel DePace was her son.

Eric, Thanks for creating the record of my Great-Grandmother's grave. I am interested to know your source for the information about her parents, which my mother (her granddaughter) did not have. Thanks. Robert Cole

Thank You Eric! Sorry to hit you with so many edits. Your work provided the trail of bread crumbs needed to tie my boss back to his Lamborn roots. All the Best - Rob Hobdell (also a Lamborn)

Maiorano-Fortugno--Than You's

A very special thank you much appreciated, for transferring my in-laws families.
I can now add in family information on them.
With someone like you doing your research it also helps those of us doing Ancestry lineage on families.

Very Greatful,

Maiorano--Fortugno Families

Sorry to bother you again.
Where do you get the personal information on my in-laws and other families you list in Cathedral and All Saints and other cemeteries?

I added pictures to some of the family.
Will you kindly now transfer all the Maiorano's I requested before in All Saints #107118970. 107118971, 10711897 to me?
In Cathedral Cem. Delores is a double as last year I tried to add information to her but couldn't so added in her. Can you kindly remove your listing #109963993 as I have all her family information added to her.
I am despretly working on these people adding in family lineage info.
I appreciate your kind help with my request.

Fortugno-Maiorano Memorials
Hello Eric,

As for the repeated requests, it wasn't my intention to do so. I didn't realize about the duplicates you mention, as I know they cause confusion.
Kindly recheck as I took out the ones you requested.
I will now have to redo all the written info and pictures again it seems.
I have worked with family lineage for aver 45 years, don't want to walk on anyones toes with it.

Thank you

Maiorano Memorials
Hello Eric,

Thank you for making the corrections to my in-laws and family on Findagrave. It is very much appreciated.
Can you transfer the memorials of Joseph Vito Maiorano #107118971, Helen Ann Fortugno Maiorano #107118970 and their son Samuel "Sammy" Michael Maiorano #107118972 to me please? My number is 473725251.
I want to do profile write-ups on them.
I was sure I had put them in a while back, as I add some in family in Cathedral Cem.
Keep up your good work. It is important to us people who do genealogy work.
