(I always photograph the grave even if there is no stone, so we know someone has checked.)

Please note the caption on the picture. She does not have a stone; that is the empty space where one should be. (What you're seeing is the back of someone else's stone.)

Disregard my last note to you. It was my computer. It was happening on each memorial I was trying to add. I rebooted and then everything was fine.

I took photos of their gravestones at Sylvan Abbey Cemetery. The memorial is marked that photos can not be added by yourself. I don't know if you have the photos of their gravestones, but I would like to offer them to you before I delete them off my computer.

Hi Karen;

What do you mean by not adding cemetery photos to
this site? This is my great Aunt, I live in NY
and would like to see a picture of her grave site.
As I can't travel to Florida.

Photo request for Ondrulas

Hello, Kamil --

Could you visit the Sylvan Abbey Mausoleum in Clearwater, FL and post a photo of the mausoleum plaque of my aunt, Mary Jane Ondrula (passed away June 21, 2013), and my uncle Rudolph Ondrula (passed away February 19, 2015).

Thank you from a Find A Grave member.

Duplicate Entry
You entered a grave for Raymond W. Gordon (147973082) on June 17, 2015.

I entered his grave info and picture (147849379) on June 14, 2015.

Since you have more links on yours I will delete mine and add the photo to yours.

RE: Murphy Amelia B headstone
There is an Anthony W. Murphy buried next to her. Born 1906, died 1972.

Once again, sorry for the confusion. The plot info for Alex is not in the plot line and doesn't show up in the request list. His name shows up, but not the plot info.

I had said "I'll look for Aleskander in that plot as well." I did look for him in that area of Section 59. I had no idea there's a note on his memorial saying Section 44 until your last note let me to click on the memorial.

So, I've claimed it and will look in Section 44, Baby Row 7 on Friday. That said, Section 44 has few stones in the rows.

Out of 115 sections the worst for finding stones are 13, 15, 18, 44, 47, 50 and 59 and both of your burials are in those sections. So, I'm not hopeful for a stone but will certain look on Friday. (may have another graver look tomorrow if she wants it)

RE: Calvary
I'm sorry if you told me where it was. I thought maybe it was in the same location but without a marker I don't know for sure either way.

Another graver who's really good with Section 59 is going Wednesday afternoon, I'll ask her to double check my guess on where Helen's burial is.

Since you're across the ocean, I will check with the office for Alex's grave if you don't already know the location. I'll then take photos on Friday.

Added by runner9 on Jul 09, 2013 3:09 PM

Received. Thanks! I'll look for Aleskander in that plot as well. 59 is a bit of a more difficult section but I'll try. If I don't find it (many are unmarked) I'll take a general photo and/or ask *Janice to look, who's good with 59 but not available right now.

RE: Re
It would be faster if you called.

I'm going this Friday, however I've already called twice the week for plot info for others.

We have a few gravers who have volunteered to make some calls to get plot info for us. I'd be happy to put your requests on that list but it would probably be the middle of next week until someone called, then another week or so until one of us went to take the photos.

So, it's up to you: if you call today I'll take on Friday, weather permitting.

If you want me to arrange someone to call it would probably be 10-14 days until the photos are uploaded.

Added by runner9 on Jul 03, 2013 6:44 AM

I've very sorry. With, at one time, 787 requests and now 430 it's difficult to keep track of who's who, what issues people have, etc.

If you're willing to wait another couple of weeks I can try to have someone obtain the plot info for you since you live outside the country. Again, I'm sorry that you've told me this and I forgot.

RE: Helen Gordon
6 hours earlier here than there? Are you in Europe? Please let me know if you are before you try to call internationally.

Cleveland Calvary Request
I see that you put in another request at Calvary with a note asking how to get plot info. Please call the office at (216) 641-7575. Tell them you want to verify that 2 relatives are buried there and find out where in the cemetery they are. They'll ask for the names and death year, then give you the plot information. If you could do this before the end of Wednesday I would be happy to take the photos on Friday. Thanks!

Cleveland Calvary Request
Just a friendly mid June reminder that we need plot info to fill your Cleveland Calvary request(s). We have less than 500 requests left but plot info for only 6% of those, having already filled the rest with plot info. We can't ask for plot info for more than 3 requests per week. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot info. We'd really appreciate it and will fill your request(s) soon after getting plot info. Thank you!

Added by runner9 on Jun 14, 2013 7:55 PM

I'm glad that *Janice was able to help with you section 59 request. You have one Calvary request outstanding. If you'd please call the office and obtain the plot (216) 641-7575 it'd be most helpful. We might need a map or might already have one (see my page) Could be filled as soon as tomorrow if you obtain and post plot info.

RE: Carol J. Zbiegień
Hello Kamil. I used a map of this part of Section 59 to locate the precise location of Sec 59, Row 9, Grave 481. Unfortunately, there is no gravestone located there for Carol. There is a gap in the row that is probably Carol's gravesite, in the section for children. I took some photographs of that location, and will upload those to Carol's memorial page. Sorry!

Added by Janice on Apr 02, 2013 8:06 PM

RE: :)
For the one you link, is the plot info not in the plot location on the memorial, but instead listed as a note? I see the plot info on the memorial but I don't see it on the request. I parse the requests into a spreadsheet and it doesn't show up if it's not in the plot info.

The other request you have doesn't have plot info on the memorial.


Added by runner9 on Feb 15, 2013 8:14 AM

You've put in request(s) at Calvary in Cleveland. Several of us are actively working to clear the more than 745 requests. With 400,000 burials and 300 acres, if you could please obtain plot information AND a plot map one of us will be more likely to be able to fill the request, as the office will only give out a little information to each person. The office phone number is (216) 641-7575. On my page I have the plot maps listed that we already have which is quite a few. If the burial is in one of those sections we don't need another map, just the plot info on the request.

You can try to tell them you'll be visiting when they're closed, etc. So far everyone who's called has been successful in having a map mailed, a few e-mailed. If you get one let me know and I'll give you my e-mail address. With thousands of graves per section a plot map would be VERY helpful. Without plot information it's basically impossible.
