|Bio and Links|
I am a genealogist from Western Massachusetts |
90% of the memorials I have created are local to my area or within driving distance.
If you find a memorial that I have created which lacks details or perhaps something is incorrect, I assure you it was either created quickly as a group or from a flawed transcript.
I will transfer a memorial dated post c. 1950 to anyone who wishes to develop it further.
If you come across a memorial from an earlier period which has not been developed (yet) send me a message and I will complete it. I assure you the result will be at least what you were hoping to see, most likely substantially more detailed.
You will always find me responsive and helpful, no matter how many edits you send.
Genealogical research has been a passion of mine since my earliest years, at 12 I began keeping a ledger and interviewing relatives, often with a tape recorder. I have never stopped. I was there before anything was digitized or there even was an internet. Archives, libraries, cemeteries.. I spent vacations and skipped school to visit these regularly. I have researched the family of every person I have ever known for any length of time, peers/co workers.. and as a result have gained a great deal of experience and skill. When you are passionate about something, you become very good at it naturally.
I began working for the LDS Church at the age of 18 as a volunteer librarian in Bloomfield, Ct., assisting others utilize the old IGI and more importantly locating vital records of birth/marriage/death etc for their ancestors by ordering the mircrofilm/fiche from Salt Lake for the town of origin. Soon afterward I began teaching Italian Genealogy classes for those just starting work with Italian records. I also have extensive experience with the church parish registers from Québec, France, Italy, Spain and Poland. I read French, Italian, Spanish & Latin, and have extracted to database hundreds of thousands of original parish registers from those areas. My website www.cariniexchange.com hosts 220,000 original images and as many extractions for one of my ancestral villages in Sicily.
While I do have a few early Massachusetts lines, I married at 22 to a woman who was half "Yankee" and I began working with the records of early New England. I documented, applied for, and enrolled both of my sons into the CAR before they were a year old, on the service record of Lieut. Daniel Pike . I have also assisted a dozen people in gaining membership into The Mayflower Society (which if any of you are familiar is a very difficult process).
I found Find A Grave in 2012 after I had a monument placed on the grave of my biological grandfather Abolfazl Mofrad. In the beginning I only created memorials for close family and people that I knew who had passed away.
In late 2013 I began photographing cemeteries in my area (Western Massachusetts). As a genealogist I thoroughly enjoyed researching the lives and families of the people I was creating memorials for. My first major project was Russell Center Cemetery where the only memorials were recent, the oldest section had not been photographed. I obtained transcripts and methodically photographed/documented/interlinked everyone buried there. I have not stopped since.
I will do whatever I can to help anyone who asks, politeness and respect will get you everywhere in my book. Please do not be rude, there is no need for that here. We are all volunteers and some of us work very hard to find and photograph the final resting place of many "lost souls".

Got an answer to my email:
Yes, I found him! He is in Plot #9, which is the old section. If your cousin can stop in the office between 8-4 Mon-Fri, I can provide him a map to his location or I can have one of the guys bring him there directly.

Thanks again for your efforts
Thank you so much for the photos of Peter and Achsa Crosier Aldrich's tombstone and for your work on findagrave.com.
|Jan D||Israel Parsons - Hill Burying Ground, Hatfield|
Your commentary about Israel is very interesting. The photo very clearly shows that it is Israel, yet the 1899 transcriptions by the Hatfield Historical Club read "Sacred to the Memory of Samuel Parsons who died Dec 10 1808, age 40. Also Sarah Parsons aged 18 years." If I hadn't seen the photo, I'd have thought you were mistaken, but clearly you are not. Thanks for posting this photo. (I'm working with the Cemetery Commission to map the Hill Burying Ground.) Jan

I have a cousin that might be in the area of Utica, NY soon. I asked her if she would check for Hiram Denio in the Forest Hills cemetery. She might? Do you have any clues to where in that cemetery he is located?
