|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 state your relationship when making transfer requests. 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.

|PJ Miller||Thank you for the transfer of Kezia Moss Royce|
|Diane Tichenor||21960693 Noah Brown|
Thanks oh so much for the bio with Noah Brown's memorial. That helped me combine the Browns married into in my husband's Wheeler/Bassett/Hopkins family of Dutchess Co, New York.
Noah Brown's youngest child, "Harriet, born 29 Mar 1800, died 24 Jun 1876" married 2nd my husband's ancestor, Lyman Bassett, 18152224, as his second wife. If you know where Harriet Brown Sornberger Bassett is buried, I'd like to know and will make her a memorial. Thanks again! Diane Tichenor

Jan: Thank you so much for George - in searching for his guardian, I have proven a lot of data on those buried near him.

Thank you for adding the info to the memorial of James Warren. Hope you have a great day.
Hello Jan Franco
I live in England and this lady is related through marriage to one line of my family called Driver.
This is another piece in the jigsaw puzzle of family history.
Thanks and best wishes
