Not done yet, I've got 2 folders with 500+ pictures waiting for me to finish uploading St. Cyril's next door! And hopefully soon, I'll get down there to photograph the Protestant Cemetery in town.

I did not post the cemetery originally. I seem to remember that there was 3 or 4 cemeteries in a row, or very close to each other, and Kathleen and I photographed several headstones in each cemetery. When we returned home to Connecticut and I started to post the pictures there were only a few memorials listed for the cemetery so I created the memorials for the pictures we had taken with thoughts of returning someday to do more memorials. Needless to say that day has yet to come. I don't recall the memorials that were listed first.
I think you can go to Find A Grave to have the name changed or added as a AKA. I think you can find that location in Frequently Ask Questions.

Thank you for your kindness in planning to look for our photo request in Roseland. Theron is one of my relatives.
Our photo request in St. Mary's was actually William & Dolores Bialis, 158705902. Dolores is my husband's relative and she married into the Bialis family. They were buried in the Bialis family plot in St. Mary's. You had already added some of the family and I have been adding the photos to their memorials.
We did find the photo request for Steve Harbolovic which was lucky as my husband found it and the name on the gravestone was Horbolewich. I would have probably missed that but he saw it was close and looked at the first names & dates on the stone which matched so we took it.
We probably took 100 photos in St. Mary's since we had a time limit to be there. I did not take any I could not read. I will send you edits as I add the photos.
In the Easton area of Pennsylvania where we live, there are a lot of old German gravestones. I have learned enough basic German to be able to read & translate them most times. I do have someone who helps me if I cannot read the old German writing.
You are correct, it is great to see your relatives gravestones even if someone else has to take the photo, especially the old ones.
|Carol & David||RE: Saint Marys Russian Orthodox Cemetery|
Thank you for your response and for the work you have done in adding the memorials to St. Mary's. We actually live over a hour away from this cemetery and had two photo requests for my husband's relatives which were still open after two years so we decided to make the trip.
We did not realize there were about six or seven cemeteries next to each other. We also noticed that a number of the gravestones in St. Mary's are not engraved in English lettering which would make it difficult for anyone to add to Find A Grave unless you could translate the stone.
Good luck in your research and hopefully you continue to find more that are buried in St. Mary's to help future researchers.

My husband & I were at St. Marys today to locate one of his relatives which we found. I took a number of photos while there and have been adding them to Find A Grave.
I noticed that you are also adding memorials from obituaries and adding the obituaries. Some of the gravestones I took were for your memorials and I have sent edits for name and date corrections. The obituaries do not always spell the names correctly and sometimes the gravestones are not engraved correctly. Either way, I generally spell it the way it is on the gravestone. I will be adding my gravestone photos to your memorials.
Two things I would ask, please do not add any obituaries you find to our memorials as we do not care for them and they sometimes do not allow space for the actual gravestone photos. Secondly, please check for various spellings when creating new memorials to avoid creating duplicates when obituaries may spell the name differently then the gravestone. One example is a stone I took today lists the spelling of Scarlos, I saw a spelling of Scarloss in a number of your memorials. Not sure if the paper spelled it correctly or the gravestone. I am trying to avoid creating any duplicates of your memorials so I have been using a first name and a first initial for the last name to bring up all spellings.

You're more than welcome. If you have any other ancestors in there I can help you with, let me know. It's fairly close to me.

You are very welcome.

It was my pleasure. Our library has a searchable index for notices from the newspaper. Here is the link; http://brantford.library.on.ca/localhistory/bmd/search-the-bmd/
There are a number of Postill notices and if there is anything you would like a copy of I would be happy to do that for you.

I have couple more photos of Siloam Cemetery if you want them let me know. I did not want to add all grave photos to your memorial.
