stone pic
There is one of your photos of a stone in Mortimer Cemetery, George Harris, Find A Grave # 22601655. The person who added the memorial has 19 years of age. Do you think that could be 49? It is hard to see from the picture. He is in my husband's line, and I have a birth 1778, and the death is the same as listed on the memorial. If you are ever in the cemetery again, I would appreciate it if you could check it for me. Thank you for your work. If I find any more of your pictures, may I use them for the tree? Photo courtesy given. Fran

Hale collection error
There are a 1/2 dozen of the memorials you created that have the wrong surname (1 is actually a duplicate of the correct name)
Th explaination will take too much to detail on here.
Please send me an email so that I can outline what the problem is and send you supporting info.

Beach memorials in CT
Hi Jan,

If you like to keep your name on the memorials you created and maintain them, okay, but if you happen to want to transfer any of the Beach surnames in New Haven County, or Fairfield Couny, feel free to just do that. Meanwhile, I will be suggesting edits along the way. I at least like to connect them to their kin, and sometimes, write bios.

My number is 48171947

Thank you for all your hard work.

RE: Transfer Managing
Hello Jan,

Thank you for the Transfer as it means a lot to me. Yes the original building still stands proudly facing the majestic Connecticut River. The use of St John's has changed over the years....from orphanage to youngsters having difficulties living in family due to emotional problems. At present I understand that it is an Academy that attempts to aid students in their education.

I appreciate you Jan.

Transfer Managing
Greetings Jan!

Would you be so kind as to allow me to manage (with love) two sites: Sr. Mary DeLourdes Fairhurst, CSJ #149905350 and Sr. Rita Mary Fairhurst, CSJ #148699897.

These two Sisters of St. Joseph cared for me during my stay at St. John's Orphanage in Deep River, CT. in the late Thirties and early Forties.

This person was our great grandfather and father of Harry Bridgman-Smith, our grandfather on my father's side of the family. I'd like to know if any further information or pictures are available pertaining to Watrous Beckwith Smith. Thank you for your help.

Jared Goodrich
Son of Margaret Orvis, William Goodrich has something amiss in the memorial. There is a copy of a publication which both refers to the wrong person entirely and the narrative states he is son of Jared Goodrich and Zillah Betts.

Thank you again, Jan, for all you have done in memorializing so many of my relatives! You're awesome!

New Cemetery?
Hi Jan. I just noticed that St. Lawrence Garden Mausoleum was added as a different cemetery from St. Lawrence Cemetery in West Haven. Send me an e-mail, I noticed several cemeteries added now that do not exist.

Thank You

Find A Grave Memorial# 10084651, Julian Kalinauskas
I was wondering by chance if you are related to the Kalinauskas family found in Connecticut. I have been trying to find a listing for names in the CT cemeteries. I am searching for Ralph and Veronica and can't get anywhere from here in Ohio. I tried the links you have listed in your bio but didn't see an inscription list. Thanks, Kathleen

Linda Monroe
Esther Edgerton Reed (1769 - 1852)
To Jan,
First, I want to thank you for all the work you have done in preparing the Memorial for my ancestor, Esther Edgerton Reed. Second, my name is Linda Monroe and I am descended through my mother Juanita Gravatt. I am a 1st cousin 1x removed of 8th great-uncle. I wanted to inquire if it would be possible to transfer the Memorial to me as I have a book called "Ezra Reed and Esther Edgerton Reed Their Life And Ancestry (1912)" by Charles Edward Benton. I would be very happy if it would be possible to manage this Memorial and any other Memorials having to do with the Reeds and Edgertons. Thank you for your consideration.

Duplicate memorial/cemetery?
Hi Jan,
I was looking at memorial #18140772 that you had created for Mnxaia Kozin. I noticed that a member had created a duplicate memorial for someone by this same name and DOB, in a cemetery in the similar location of CT. It is memorial #83205987. My question is, do you know if the Greek Catholic Cemetery is the same as the Holy Trinity Byzantine Catholic Cemetery? It looks like there are many duplicates in the two cemeteries so I am assuming they are the same. I would like to try to get these two cemeteries merged together if they are duplicates. Thanks so much!

Thank You so Very Much Jan for taking a photograph of my 6th Great Grandpa. I have a private tree and since I have no photograph of Him, would appreciate your permission to copy your photograph to identify Him with at least a tombstone? I would ensure you receive credit by adding ''Jan Franco [your member ID].

Thank You very much for All of your very hard work and time.
Sincerely and Respectfully,
