1. [CASANFRA] Bubble Grave in Cork [1]
In following one of my SF families back to County Cork I noticed on someone else's website that an ancestor was was buried in a 'bubble grave' in an Inchigeelagh graveyard. Can anyone tell me please, what exactly is a "bubble grave"? (google was no help this time!)

So, we are looking north from about 5th & Market Street before 1906 toward Angel Island with Alcatraz in the midground, so to speak. It this correct?

I know of the Russ Building and the Russ Hotel. I thought the Russ Building was build after 1906. I'm interested in what you have on the topic. Thanks!

Thanks Beth, Yes, I appreciate having that image for my collection. Thanks for sharing it. Let us know when you post the rest. Those are true family treasures. I do believe your photo was taken in 1905 based on the building in the foreground. If no one responds by tomorrow I'll list the other landmarks. :o) Jim glassbybeth@aol.com wrote: > Thank you so very much Jim.

8. [CASANFRA] Thomas Magee [1]
Jim & Doug, I think have been able to narrow it down. I checked the 1890 Great Register and found a Thomas Magee. His age 50, born in Ireland and lived at 800 Van Ness, SF. I then went to the 1887 SF City Directory, page 769, and found a MAGEE, Thomas, real estate agent, and editor and proprietor Real Estate Circular, 20 Montgomery, r. 800 Van Ness Av. This could be Jim's ancestor. (There was also listed a MAGEE, Thomas W., baker, r 1155 Folsom.) I went to the 1880 Census SF, CA, and found Thomas Mag

Hi Bill, This shot is from Nob Hill looking east. The CA Hotel would be off to the right at around Bush & Kearney. It's hard to see on Beth's photo but look at how Alcatraz and Angel Island line up.

You're right Fran - it was Grace Church then. Your photo of the tower matches identically. Cathedral just roll off the fingers. I love their carillon, used first in the 1939-40 World Fair on TI because the Cathedral's towers weren't finished..

16. Re: [CASANFRA] Thomas Magee [1]
With an extremely common name like "Thomas Magee" more information would be useful. There is no Thomas Magee dying in California (much less San Francisco) with the approximate age you give during the period 1905-1929. But this doesn't mean he wasn't here. "Thomas Magee" restricted to CA before 1915 gives 219 hits in genealogybank.com -- a drunk, a doctor, an appraiser (just the first 6 of the 219). His wife's name (actually her initials) might help with the death index or help in a newspaper search. H

Grace Cathedral did not exist at the time of the 1905 photo. Could be its namesake predecessor Grace Church which had a tower; it was at California & Stockton (completed 1862.) Grace Church was destroyed by the '06 post-quake fire. After the quake there was a chapel at Sacramento & Taylor (NE corner of the current Grace Cathedral location) for several years before the cathedral project was started (after 1916.)

Stirring photos. It's hard to imagine the emotions the photographers were dealing with when taking these photos. Brave souls.

My understanding is that Mount Calvary Cemetery records are held only at Holy Cross Cemetery. They are not online with the other Holy Cross records. I have ordered records and they take a long time. I was told that the film is very old and hard to read. Is there anywhere else that has a copy of these records? Many of my San Francisco ancestors were buried there. Thanks, Martha

23. [CASANFRA] Finding info on Uncle and Aunt [1]
Hello, Louise -- I looked on the city's Web site at http://gispubweb.sfgov.org/website/sfparcel/index.htm, and there is indeed still a house at 722 Page. According to city records, it was built in 1912. Its block number and lot number are 0844 006, so you can use that information to search for more on the house. I also typed "722 Page Street San Francisco" into Google Maps and was able to look at the actual house! You might want to try that and see if you recognize it from family photos. Good luck! Vic

Hi Listers, I just did a death look up for a lady who was looking for info on her grandmother's shooting death in 1931. I found the death date. Wonder if anyone has info about this case: Hi Linda, You are amazing! I have literally spent hours trying to find that information! Pauline was my Mother's mother and died when my Mom was 9 years old. She was dating an Irish tenor with the SF radio station and he accidentally shot her. It was labeled "San Francisco Love Nest Murder". The family did not
