Bio and Links
I encountered Find A Grave years ago while surfing the net one day on some Hollywood greats, when I came across Clark Gable's memorial. Getting interested in the photos featured, I started browsing names and there they were: Fernandel, David Niven, Rita Hayworth...I was impressed to see such a keen index of so many deceased persons, even though at that time it amounted to only a couple of thousands!

Although I kept visiting the site from time to time, I did not join in immediately as a member. When I did, I used to leave a couple of messages, but creating memorials seemed a bit difficult. The first one came following the death of my Great Aunt, Sr. Teresa Orlando rscj., in 2002.

Eventually, FAG became for me a special point of reference. It did take me quite a time to collect all the information posted here, especially when it relates all the biographies featured. Naturally, in order to be able to present here all these profiles and photos, I have been in touch across the years, with several dioceses, provinces, and archive collections from all over the world. Naming all the sources is virtually impossible, but I have to mention Mr. Salvador Miranda, creator of "The Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church" Digital Resource.

Researchers might find a number of interesting profiles in my entries, including a full Necrology of all the late members of the Mid-West Augustinian Province and the Western Dominican Province, which I added across the years thanks to the great support and help received from Brother Thomas Taylor OSA., and the late Father Fabian Stan Parmisano OP., (1926 - 2009). Other entries include all the Dominican Friars interred at Rosaryville, Ponchatoula, Louisiana. These Friars belonged to the Midwestern Dominican Province of the USA. Most of the Dominican Friars affiliated with this Province buried at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines, Illinois, can be also found in another Virtual Cemetery of mine.

I always try to remember people who in their humbleness worked and took care of many, in silence, for whom history has left little or no space. Hoping you might find some of the memorials to your interest, I wish above all, that they might be also appreciated by others or remembered in prayers.

RE: Religious that I have added
I have about 6 in Ireland and one in the United States, all Cistercian. Not great lords of the church, however most I knew personally with few exceptions, these are memorials to friends who dedicated their loves to God.

RE: Rosaryville
Eman, You're welcome! I have all 3 @ 100%. Using the IPhone Find A Grave App, it told me there was a photo request @ Dominican Friar's. There was already a photo there, I took another. It didn't say who requested. Anyway, want to thank you for the individual photos.

Religious that I have added
I have noticed that you have left many notes over the years to memorials that I have added, I was at one time a Cistercian Religious, I am preparing to leave Findagrave, would you be interested in managing the memorials that I have created.

A small Addition to name
Hi Eman,

Thank you for all your hard work as a member of 'Find A Grave'. I'm impressed!!!!

May I ask a favor? You did an outstanding job on the Memorial #160185052 Brother Liam Young, SA my classmate.

I am trying to fix up little Odds and Ends on various Memorials of the Graymoor Friars. Would you be kind enough to 'fix up' Liam's name to: Br Liam Young, SA

Thank You Eman and God Bless!

Br Timothy F MacDonald, SA
