Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been actively researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

I also strive to visit each memorial I create (plus others that relate to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It is my honor and privilege to do so.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

I would like your permission to use the headstone photos for the members of the Baldocchi family in my family tree.

Lucille Baldocchi's family
Today I found a handwritten note from Marcene and was trying to find out if you are family. Please contact me at and I will try to make a copy of it for you. My grandma was Margaret (Grezka) Berg. (She was a Jones when she married my grandfather)

Thanks, Jackie Edkins Fritsch

Re: Ella Cox
While it appears that there are duplicates for Ella's memorial, one is actually a cenotaph while one the other is the actual burial memorial. According to Find A Grave a cenotaph exists as "the initial marker for a person who has since been interred elsewhere". Cenotaphs are allowed by Find A Grave but they request notification so that they can mark the cenotaph as such. I just sent Find A Grave an email with that request. Thanks for the heads up!

Cimino Photo Request - Mt Carmel, Hillside, IL
Hi Patti! I was out in Mt Carmel today looking around in Section B. I didn't find the Cimino's you're trying to get pics for but I did find the following:

First - I uploaded a headstone pic for Amelia Cimino who already has a memorial. She also shares a marker with Eugenio Martinetto (also has memorial). In front of her marker and closer to the road is Salvatora Cimino 1851 - 1925 (no memorial).

Also not far away is Frank Rullo 1913-1995 and Dorothy Rullo 1918-Unknown. Based on the way they're facing, they seem to be a part of the St Francis area which is next to Sect B. but that could be a coincidence. There's a map on the cemetery page if you want to look at the area.

Finally, in Section H, which also shares the area, I found the Torraco surname that you mentioned with the Venute photo requests. Rose Torraco 1881-1926, Joseph Torraco 1876-1924, and James Torraco 1907-1962.

I've got pics for all so let me know when you've created their memorials. Have a great night, Stacey

Add'l Graves at Mt. Carmel
I was able to find additional graves of family members at Mt. Carmel. Do you have an email or dropbox account I can send them to? You can decide if you want to create memorials for them (I don't have the time!!! :)
