Names from France – Baptistin, Edme, Nazareth, Vasilica

We only walked through a small part of Paris’s famed Père Lachaise Cemetery, but it was enough to spot Edme and Vasilica:

Also buried in Père Lachaise is Fulgence Bienvenüe (1852-1936), the civil engineer who helped create the Paris Métro.

In a much smaller cemetery in the town of Mougins, I found the names Adelme, Ottorino, and Nazareth:
