trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.|
Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County.
Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.
Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.
I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.
My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed...

|Just Roaming Around||Question Please|
Hi, I just started doing this and looking for my relatives so excuse me for asking as I am new at this. I have read all the rules for the sight and never saw where I had to provide source information. Could you please tell me where I could find it? Thanks! Joe
|Just Roaming Around||RE: memorial updates|
Sure, but it seems silly to do that since all my sources are from census reports, birth, death, and marriage records which are all public information. These are the only sources I use.
|Wendy||Douglas Barclay, Elmwood Cemetery|
I've made your suggested links on his memorial.
What a great photo of Douglas! Are you related?
Please message me, as I am a cousin...

I found a few years ago that Anna is my birth mother. I was born on February 25, 1947 in Middletown, NY. I was put up for adoption 5 days after I was born. Is there anyway I could be connected with her family? My birth name was Margaret. She was married to E David Fairweather at the time of my birth.
Thanks for any help.

Thank you so much for looking for my Vayette ancestors in WRJ for me. Maybe their headstones are lost. I really appreciate you trying!

Have listed all children and other information per your suggestion. Info is separated by +++++++. Hopefully we can link up all.
|Tim Leno||Gideon Crandall|
Per your suggestion, I have removed the memorial I created for him, in favor of the later, and more informative one created by Dwayne Crandall.
Thank you for the "heads-up".

|Mike Melville||Thank You|
You Do a great Job. I live in Utah this makes it easy to find my ancestors.

Hey Lady Goshen,
You were right on with the date. I was so focused on trying to decipher the inscription, I didn't see how clearly your photo read.
Do you use a camera or a phone? I just figured out how to use my phone to better advantage.
Are you related to any of these "old folk"?
