|Bio and Links|
If you are new to findagrave, I suggest you read "frequently asked questions" carefully before making entries or requests. |
Since I get a huge volume of requests, please make it easier for me to add biographical information, relationship links, or corrections by going to the page you want linked or corrected and click on "edit." Your info will be emailed directly to me and I can click on the link. If I get the email I will make changes, but generally I don't have time to email you. Please double check dates and info; if multiple items are misspelled or have typos, I am inclined to believe the other material may also be erroneous.
PLEASE NOTE THAT "TRANSFER REQUESTS SHOULD BE FOR DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS" as per Findagrave policy- see FAQs. Please state your relationship in the request. You are able to add photos to any entry.
When the website started there was no option for linking relatives. I am happy to add desired links: please double check your numbers so errors don't make double work for both of us.
I am related to some of the people I have added; entries are also posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.
Please take digital photos of old gravestones in your area; some that exist today may crumble in a season or two, especially in areas with winter frost. In a way, your photo will preserve it. Perhaps it will be the only record of a particular gravestone. Please do not apply any substance to a gravestone to make it more legible; it damages the stone.
You may use my findagrave photos for your personal use, with attribution; anything to be published - please contact me for permission. Click on photo for larger format.
If you are requesting a photo in a large cemetery please take the time to get section and plot number from the cemetery office, if there is one. Your request has a better chance of being fulfilled that way. Most volunteer photographers work on the weekends when cemetery offices are not open.
Verify everything; transcriptions and even information "written in stone" may be inaccurate. A good example is when the date April 31 appears on a gravestone.
Most of the CT cemeteries have already been added to findagrave. When in doubt check under "New" and "Old" to see if you've missed the listing. Please HESITATE before creating a new Connecticut cemetery on findagrave. I'll be happy to research it for you to avoid duplication; so many alternate names and town name changes make it likely it is already listed in another place. The majority of CT cemeteries that existed in 1934 were surveyed on the Hale Index: www.cslib.org/halecol.htm. Although it contains errors and omissions it is still very helpful.
Another source of information is the Ct Gravestone Network: www.ctgravestones.com.
Your local library or historical society can also assist you. Ask for the person most familiar with the cemeteries or the history of the town.
For additional help visit the findagrave forums.

Your correct it probably isn't the same Ebenezer Stow I have in my records.
Thanks for writing back.

Thank you for letting me know. I have been a member for a long time and had never noticed it before.
|Doris Wyss||Azel & Sarah Sumner|
Thank you so much for posting memorials and photos for Azel & Sarah. I would like to ask your permission to post the photos on ancestry.com with photo credit to yourself. Please let me know if this would be okay with you.
Thanks again, Doris
|Gary Watson||Edward Asahel Sherman|
Not sure I understand this message on this memorial I added. I would like to get a photo of his gravestone.
Don't show cemetery photos
on this memorial [?]
Added by: Jan Franco
Please explain the issue.
|Betty Stripling||RE: Sturges Fanton|
Your name appeared under the message that "no photo was to be shown on this memorial" - that is why I thought it was you. I've not ever seen that message before and it confused me. I tried several different things but no luck. Sorry.
|vabloom||RE: Wm. Brunnemann|
Anna was his wife. He was her first husband. Her second husband was also a "William" but last name Albers.

In reading your bio on Find a Grave, I notice that you are okay with others using your photos for personal reasons. In the past, I have included some of your photos on my ancestry.com family tree, and I just want to be sure that usage is considered a personal reason. I will certainly add your name to the photos, in addition to the Find a Grave cite already attached. Thank you for your consideration. Gwen
