  1. Concerning: the location of the cemetery Schoonselhof (Belgium – Antwerp) on the map of your site.

    The location of Schoonselhof on your site isn’t correct, the current location you have on there, is the cemetery of Hoboken, but Schoonselhof is 500 meters removed from that cemetery. The main enterance is located on the intersection of the Sint Bernardsesteenweg and the Krijgsbaan. Would it be possible for you to straighten this mistake out?

    Many thanks,

  2. Thanks Waness. We will correct it as soon as possible.

  3. Hello,
    There is a photo of a statue on a cemetery on Pinterest that links to a page on this site that no longer exists. Everyone on Pinterest seems to think it's from a cemetery in Turin. The woman has her arm stretched out in longing.
    Could you please tell me where this is?
    Thank you!

  4. Hello, My great grandmother Josephine (Damboer) von Stengel is buried at Certosa Monumental Cemetery. I live in the suburbs in Washington D.C. I am sadded by the fact my family did not inform me of this since I traveled to Italy 3 years ago. Is there some way I can get a photo of my great grandmother's grave. Gudrun von Stengel was my grandmother and she married Paul Eschenbach and one of their three girls is Eleonore Eschenbach who married Donald Sistare. I am the child of Eleonore and Donald. It would mean a lot to me to have a photo of her grave. I have looked on, but she is not there. Anything you could do to help would be greatly appreciated. I know I will visit the next time we vacation in Italy. Thank you very much for your time. Jeanette Lum

  5. Dear Jeanette, we will prolong your email to members from Bologna and check if they can help you.

  15. Dear Madame/Sir,

    I'm writing you from US and I would like to ask for your kind assistance.
    We only recently found out that my grandmother Varadinka Ignjatovic, born Stojanovic, was killed in Maribor, Slovenia on 10th oh July 1950. We found this only recently, and after 65 years since her killing was kept as a secret. Unfortunately, we do not have any data regarding the cemetery where my grandmother was buried... We were informed that autopsy took place one of the Maribor's Hospitals but with no data where exactly. We assume that body was buried in Maribor since investigation and forensic medicine took place in Maribor as well.

    I've already sent an email to the Secretariat - but there were no replies. We would be greatly thankful for any of your kind assistance and leads you might have for us, since we are trying to locate the grave of my grandmother. I could provide more information via email.
    Thank you very much in advance!

    On behalf of grieving families Ignjatovic and Bogdanovic,
    Dr Sasa Bodanovic (Varadinka's grandson)

  16. Good Afternoon,

    I will be in Italy in October and am interested in attending the Ravenna conference. My Italian is weak, however, so I am curious to know if the sessions will be offered exclusively in Italian, or if English translation or transcription will be available. If not, my attendance would be rather meaningless!

    Many thanks for your assistance with this matter.

  18. Dear Mr Montemuino,

    thank you for your comment and information. If possible please review options to participate at our Symbols project ( where it could be very interesting to get some broader view and participation. We are sure there are many other ways for cooperation in long term and perhaps to even present some results in future conferences we will hold. You may as well contact us at our email addresses.

    With best regards,
