Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started tracing my family tree in 1997. I live in San Diego and have to do much of my work long distance and have often depended on the kindness of strangers.

When I found Findagrave I saw it as a way to honor my ancestors and provide help to those who have loved ones buried here. Not everyone in my family gets this, but I enjoy tramping through cemeteries.

Unless otherwise stated, I don't consider my photographs to be copyrighted. If you wish to use them for family histories, please feel free to do so (though it would be kind to let me know).

I continue to look for opportunities to expand the Findagrave database. If you see my virtual cemetery list, you can see that I have a number of Catholic clergy there. Priests, monks, brothers, and nuns are all celibate and don't have children to visit their graves. Bearing that in mind I like to think this increases the number of visitors they receive.

Hi Tom;

I added some clearer pictures of the Monument for your Memorial for Mr. Kroenert.

FYI; The Monument is in danger of collapsing.

Best Regards,

58911322 and 28064635

I have found the graves of Osithe (Allain) Melanson and Calixte Melanson's siblings. The only problem is the their father, Meleme Allain died in St. Antoine and I could not find his grave. So, I added it an put that he was buried in St. Antoine Cemetery with a note to have anyone let me know exactly where he was buried. Anyways, could you please add Meleme Allain as the father of Osithe (Allain) Melanson (58911322) and Calixte Allain (28064635). Melame Allain find a grave number is 129365441. Then you will also see all of the other children's headstones and where they were buried. ---- Norman

If there is any way that you can find John Jaddus Melanson's death certificate, I would GREATLY appreciate it.

What can you tell me about Marie Osite (Allain) Melanson (58911322). I believe that she was the wife of John Jaddus Melanson. He was the brother of my Great Grandmother Celina Melanson. Do I have the correct person ? It states Rose on the headstone. What this a nickname ?

Hopefully it will be accepted eventually. I'm hoping that having a photo of him in uniform and his portion of the AIDS quilt will help the cause.
