Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began genealogy research in 2007 in an effort to identify my paternal grandparents. In Aug 2009 during a family visit to Massachusetts my wife and I, who reside in California, visited Precious Blood Cemetery in Woonsocket, RI looking for the markers of my paternal grandparents. Although I stood within feet of my grandmother's burial location, no markers remain.
When I began research in earnest on my wife Joy's family, Find A Grave became a very useful resource. It seemed natural to join in order to record what I've learned for future researchers/family members, and whenever possible to take over management of our families' memorials. Joy and I have since discovered an interest in cemeteries we never knew existed! We enjoy working as a team and are always willing to help with photo requests as time and opportunity allows.

UPDATE- We are now residing in Southeast Kansas. JON & JOY

FAG rules for transfers.

In the words of Captain Barbossa,.... "they're really more like guidelines...." Direct line, so many generations, ..... Family, should be with Family. We don't create memorials for ourselves unless they are Our relatives. All other memorials we create in the hope that a family member will request a transfer. We are only custodians. A relative who cares and/or has known the individual will be a better custodian than we. Ask nicely and explain why and there's a good chance we will transfer.

Edit requests.

If possible please explain/list "the source" of the information you want added to a memorial we maintain. We have to verify your info before updating the memorial so telling us how you know, why, or from where, makes it easier and faster to add your information.
For example- If you ask us to link a memorial to parents: Father #....... & Mother #........ And don't give us any more info.
HOW DO WE KNOW these are the correct parents? The more info. you give us, the faster the updating process.

Our Family names include:
Lavoie/Dufresne, Fecteau/Bisson, Lavallee/Montmigny, Tetreault/Frappier.
McCormick/Sandwith, Schwager/Brock, Fowler/Corn, Hamilton/Kuppinger

I'm sorry this has taken me so long. I had to get away from ancestry because I was getting flustrated with not finding family. I am back and trying again. Yes I would love any pictures you can send. Thank you for your time.

Many thanks for your headstone photography. I know what's involved in traveling to the cemetery, finding the plots, sometimes cleaning the headstones, taking the pictures, and uploading them; all for a perfect stranger. I really appreciate your efforts.
Thanks and best regards, Karl Hamlin

RE: Grandfathers grave in Pittsburg
It was a flat marker, he never has one and before I moved to Texas I used my graduation money to make sure he had one. The best I remember he was close to a road.

Thank You,

Grandfathers grave in Pittsburg
Thank you so much, for looking for Joseph Taylor grave in the Mt Olive cemetery . I'm a little confused as to why there is no longer a stone. Can you describe to me where his grave is located, it has been years since I was there, I do remember it being closer to a road.

Thank you,
Terri Ulbricht
