    3. This is a test of the Rootsweb lists I am on. It is also some information for the list administrator if they feel the list is not running as expected. And finally it is an attempt to get something posted to the list so Rootsweb does not turn the list off. The list admin should probably go to this page: http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ and try to set up a new mailman login, if not already done. If you do that you will probably get to this page eventually: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/lists/setupmail Then you might want to sign up for this list: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/search/Listowners But be warned, you will receive postings from that list almost every day.  May 8 a day at times. Another option that I do not encourage is to turn the list over to me - at least temporarily.  Again, I do not want that done if you are willing to keep the list. Mike Flannigan

She was shaken to learn that people have been stealing bones, teeth and other human remains from the graves in the cemetery.“I think that’s very nasty and disgusting and how would you feel it that was your family? It’s no words to describe that,” Parish said.In a Facebook post, a woman in New Orleans described how the bones wash up after a rain. She goes on to say Holt Cemetery is where she gets human bones for curse work and spells, then asked if anyone would be interested if she started selling them.Adam Stevenson, president of the organization Save our Cemeteries said as bad as it sounds, it’s not an unusual occurrence.“I would love to say that my reaction would be I can’t believe something like this would happen, but unfortunately we see this far too often…” he said.Ryan Seidemann of the State Attorney General’s Office said that Holt Cemetery is the second place in a week where they’ve dealt with this disturbing problem.Seidemannn said Holt Cemetery is one of the worst with this problem and there is a lot of turnover in the cemetery. It’s different from other cemeteries in New Orleans in that the people are buried underground.The remains break down quickly and the graves cave in.The penalty for such a thing is not as steep as you might think. It is a misdemeanor.But for the families whose loved ones rest there, it's a crime against the living and the dead.Copyright 2015 WWL via CBS.

But Monday, she learned of disturbing reports of people stealing bones, teeth and other human remains from graves in the cemetery."I think that's very nasty and disgusting, and how would you feel if that was your family?" Parish said. "No words to describe that."In a recent Facebook post, one local woman describes how the bones wash up after it rains. She goes on to say this is where she gets her human bones for curse work and spells, and then asks if anyone would be interested if she started selling them.But for Adam Stevenson, president of the organization Save Our Cemeteries, his reaction to the bone thefts wasn't one of surprise."Unfortunately I would love to say that my reaction would be, I can't believe something like this would happen, but unfortunately we see this far too often with a casual regard to such things," Stevenson said.And when these things do happen, they call Ryan Seidemann. He's the man with the attorney general's office tasked with investigating theft at graveyards."We dealt with one of these problems last week and this one came up this weekend," Seidmann said.Seidemann said that Holt Cemetery is one of the worst with this problem. He explained that it's because unlike the other cemeteries in this city, the people buried are underground."The remains break down quickly and there is a lot of turnover in the cemetery," Seidemann said.The penalty for such a thing may not be as steep as you think. It's a misdemeanor."What if that was your mother, your brother, or your father, or your child?" Parish said. "You wouldn't like that."

The cemetery itself is over 177 years old, according to the church cemetery website.

Aymond The archdiocese is planning to institute new guidelines for tours at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 near the French Quarter, which has had consistent problems with people defacing or otherwise damaging tombs. Can you say what led to that decision? It’s been a sad situation. People have defaced graves. People have, at times, removed bricks from the graves. Sometimes people have removed bricks so they could actually look into the graves. This is not respect for the dead, it’s not respect for someone else’s property and it’s really a violation of what it means to be charitable and to respect the dignity of those who have gone before us in death.   What have some of the major problems been? The main thing is that people have been writing on the graves and removing bricks, especially around the tomb of Marie Laveau, who was known as the voodoo lady of New Orleans. These actions could potentially destroy the graves.   You’ve asked for licensed tour guides to pay a fee to the archdiocese to give tours at St. Louis No. 1. Is that a way of better monitoring what happens inside the cemetery? Absolutely. I want to be very up front and fair about this – many of our tour guides do excellent jobs and offer tours that are based on historical facts about the cemeteries and the history of New Orleans. Some tour guides do not. They make up things that are untrue and basically offer a “haunted house” approach to the tours. Since we started examining the problems at St. Louis No. 1, we also found out there are people who are not licensed who are giving tours. This presents a professional problem as well as a historical problem, and it gives a wider opportunity for people who might not have respect for the dead at the top of their priority list to access to the cemetery. There are busloads of people who go through these cemeteries on a daily basis, and we’re glad for them to visit and to reverence the dead. But when it goes beyond that – with things like defacing the tombs or marking them with voodoo symbols – there’s just no way that can be justified or condoned. We’ve come up with some guidelines that the tour guides will be asked to follow, and, in general, there’s been a very positive response from the tour guides.   Is this a problem you heard about when you came back to New Orleans in 2009? I think it’s been more prevalent in the last two or three years. Our cemetery workers have noticed an increase in the activity. It came to sort of a boiling point when Marie Laveau’s tomb was heavily damaged last year. In that case, both Save Our Cemeteries and the archdiocese collaborated to make sure that grave was put back into proper condition.   Is this a shocking thing to you? I guess I was somewhat surprised by this, but the more I thought about it, why would I be shocked? When people use guns and knives to settle arguments on the street with people who are alive, why would we think they would respect the dead anymore? I know that may sound a bit cynical, but we are living in an incredible time of disrespect for other human beings. When I really began to reflect on it, I asked myself, why would I be surprised about this?   Are there any other archdiocesan cemeteries that have similar problems? I don’t think it’s happening in any of the parish cemeteries that we operate, and I’m not aware of it happening in any of the other large cemeteries.   Can tourists, on their own, still walk through St. Louis No. 1? Tourists will no longer be able to enter St. Louis No. 1 without being accompanied by a licensed and registered tour guide. This is in order to better monitor the situation in the cemetery and ensure that people are not doing things that are inappropriate. People are welcome to visit, but they must be part of a tour. People who have family tombs in St. Louis No. 1 will work directly with the Cemeteries Office to receive passes and make arrangements for visits. Historians and scholars conducting research will contact the Archives and Records Office to gain admittance. That’s the same process historians and scholars use right now whenever they do research in the archdiocesan archives. These new guidelines apply only to St. Louis No. 1. We’re going to expand hours there as well, which will be good for the licensed tours. We’re also going to be adding security workers to be more attentive to what’s going on. St. Louis No. 1 is one of the historic treasures of New Orleans. We have to do everything we can to protect it, out of respect for those who have gone before us.   Questions for Archbishop Aymond can be sent to [email protected] Source: clarionherald.info/clarion/index.php/archbishop-aymond/4161-finding-a-way-to-protect-st-louis-cemetery-no-1   Michelle [email protected] Louisiana Cemetery Preservation Admin From: Gendiva922 via <[email protected]> To: [email protected] Sent: Saturday, February 28, 2015 7:45 PM Subject: [LA-CEMETERY-PRESERVATION] St Louis Cemetery # 1 My cousin sent me the information below so I don't know if it is true.  I am assuming that the St. Louis Cemetery # 1 he speaks about is in New Orleans.

    1. [LA-CEMETERY-PRESERVATION] East Baton Rouge Parish - Central, LA - North Flannery Rd. near Sugar Land Park UNKNOWN ABANDONED REPORT
    2. Louisiana Cemeteries
    3. Nick Foley authored an abandoned cemetery report from East Baton Rouge Parish where David Cain had found an private abandoned cemetery Central, LA. His article appears WAFB June 9, 2014 about an abandoned neglected historical cemetery on North Flannery Road near Sugar Land Park in the northern part of East Baton Rouge Parish. Central, LA. I do not know the cemetery name and therefore, without specific mapping information, property ownership, I cannot verify if the cemetery is listed with USGS in EBR Parish. http://www.wafb.com/story/25725460/abandoned-and-neglected-cemeteries-generate-concern Has this cemetery been documented by the State of Louisiana abandoned / neglected cemeteries? [email protected] http://www.crt.state.la.us/cultural-development/archaeology/cemeteries-burials/index It was said that the last burial was in the 1970's but there are very early 1800's headstones at this cemetery gathering from the video footage.   If anything is done, headstone photographs should be taken before they are lost and destroyed. Can Nick Foley contact David Cain for location information and have the parish verify who is the landowner? [email protected] Is it possible that the landowner does not know the cemetery exists at all? Maybe someone from the City, Parish, or State archaeology department can contact the landowner, local library, historical/ genealogical society for background information on the cemetery and future plans on upkeep? Photographs of headstones, Cemetery Signage, Fencing, Maintenance, Headstone documentation, transcriptions, plot map, landowner history, genealogy are a part of local Louisiana history and are disappearing.
