|Bio and Links|
I am a member of the NEHGS, the Old Bridgewater Historical Society (OBHS), Plymouth County Genenalogists, Inc. (PCGI), and Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries (FoMC). I have researched my Family History and now really enjoy contributing to the knowledge of all people of the past. My non-family memorials focus on my town of Bridgewater, MA and the neighboring areas.|
Building a cemetery index: I invest a lot of time developing and maintaining the cemetery page listings for Southeastern Massachusetts (maps for Plymouth and Bristol and Norfolk counties) and several other counties in the state. I add new cemeteries and I remove "incorrect" cemeteries. I improve existing cemetery pages by adding cemetery photos and the GPS coordinates. To each cemetery description, I add the GR identifiers from the MA Vital Records books and the MACRIS identifier to each Massachusetts cemetery description. MACRIS identifiers are an important first step in protecting a Massachusetts cemetery. Knowing where a cemetery is located is the first step in preserving the cemetery and finding a grave.
POSTERITY: I publish photos and create memorials here for the benefit of present and future generations. If you want to publish my gravestone photos on any website that you contribute to (except FindaGrave, according to FAQ#142), include in the photo caption used with the written permission of Chip5610 (#46997557) at FindaGrave and keep a screen-print of this page for your records. Copyright laws require you to obtain permission to use a photograph, and conditionally, you have it! Understand that merely attributing credit does not comply with the law.
Assistance: The structure of the site engenders collaboration. The "Suggest a Correction (SAC)" feature is great, so use it liberally! My e-mail was set-up specifically for FindaGrave matters, so feel free to send as many SACs as you want. This is a great hobby, and I will work with anyone, happily! My only request: Say 'Thank You'!

The memorial has been revised.
|Yvette Aune||Headstone Photo|
Thank you for the photo of Jane Allen's headstone. It is so sad to see that the headstone was in such decade. I now wish I knew what her birth and death dates were correct.
|Tim & Grace||Old Graveyard in East Bridgewater|
Thank you for adding the photos to the memorials in the Old Graveyard in East Bridgewater and also for the updates and links. I think I got all the ones you sent me, plus a couple more. It is getting hard to keep up with things, especially when you leave for a week ;)
