|Marcial Fernandez||RE: Ciani Grave @ Calvary|
Thanks for your words. Actually, the "regular" way of handling the absence of headstones is just by using the function "Report Problem" and write a few words explaining that after checking the range/plot location no headstone was found. My personal way (and I think I am the only one doing it) of handling it is by taking pictures to that range/plot where the grave with no headstone shoult be and indicating the estimated spot with marks on the photos. Of course it is a lot of more work but once I had the trip to the grave, I would hate coming back with empty hands.

Thank you so much for taking the photo of Frank Castaldi's Headstone. I appreciate it!
Thanks for your efforts. Dennis

I am uploading a photo of the marker. It is a beautiful marker and this photo taken on a sunny day does not do it justice. I will go back on an overcast day to get a better photo.

Thank you so much. I forget about snow (I live in Southern California) If you're able to go when the weather is better would be greatly appreciated.

I brought this matter to the attention of the Calvary office some years ago about the Range and Plot number and letter being backwards, they said they are only going by what the book states. They cannot change this fomat.
I will go over the procedure with you as far as Calvary goes. As I stated, the Range and Plot number and letter are backwards,
First letís define the two words: Range and Plot
Range is similar to a row, picture a shooting range, a long area, this Range must be a Letter and not a number..
Now letís define a Plot: A plot is a group of graves, 5 or more graves in one area. A plot has to be a number and not a letter..
So now let get started.
Letís use this grave for example that Calvary gave me which the Range and Plot are backwards
Section: 14, Range: 8, Plot: K, Grave: 2
1. First we find the section, which is section: 14.
2. Then we need to find the Range, which goes by letters, in my case I call it a row which is Range/Row: K
3. Now we need to find the Plot, which consists of about 5 or more group of graves in one area. The plot is # 8
4, Now we find the grave within this Plot area, which is grave 2.
If you don't follow these steps you will be in Calvary until closing time.
The Section is a number, The Range is a Letter, the plot is a number and the grave is a number.
In some sections of the Calvary cemetery records the grave locations are different, some don't have letters.
I hope Iím not getting you confused. I am just informing you of this, you can choose to leave it the way the cemetery gave it to you.

You are quite welcome. I am sorry that there was no stone. Perhaps you can check the location again to make sure that you have the correct one.
