Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been involved in genealogy research for nearly my entire life (thanks to a Morman neighbor who played flute and violin duets with me when I was in elementary school and gave me my first pedigree and family group sheet forms in a sweet little genealogy research notebook). I am always willing to help others who have been bitten by this fascinating passion. So, don't hesitate to contact me about any memorial I've put up, care for, or sponsored here at I'll be taking photos in my local area for those who need them to complete their memorials. Wishing everyone who reads this lots of happiness and success in all genealogical endeavors!

Stow Relatives
Hello Susan, I have just tonight seen the message that you sent me with an update of your information that you've posted for your Stow, MA ancestors. What a treasure trove!

I want to encourage you to get in touch with the Ancient Documents Committee in Stow (just call the town hall for information) so that they will know that you've left this information.

A friend of mine and I did a great deal of research on the people of Stow, and particularly the Minutemen, from the Revolutionary War period. I've recently turned over all my files to the Historical Society. I'm wondering if there might be some information that would fill in some of the gaps that you were wondering about in your note.

Good luck with your researches, and thank you for sharing all that information.

Mervyn H. Manasse
Hello Susan,
While doing a search for the name Manasse at the Tulocay Cemetery, I came across your biography of my grandfather, Mervyn Manasse. This is the first time I have tried searching, and haven't done any genealogy work yet. I can tell you that my grandfather requested cremation at his death, and his ashes were scattered at sea so there will be no gravestone with his name at Tulocay. My grandmother, Frances Tessin Manasse is buried there, however.
If I can offer any other information, please contact me.

RE: Links for Hannah Fairbanks
Hi Susan. I do not manage Hannah's record. I sent a request to the owner to make the connection.

RE: Links for Hannah Fairbanks

Thank you for your kind words! Unfortunately, I cannot link her to her fmaily because I do not manage that memorial any longer. I transferred it to another contributor, so perhaps you would want to ask them to make the link.

All the best.

RE: Miron / Myron Richie
Hi - "technically" the memorial should match the headstone and things like AKA's, notes about names being misspelled, errors in birth dates and such would be noted in the bio section....since the death certificate matches the headstone, the fact that you added the alternate spelling in the bio seems sufficient - HOWEVER, mother's and their requests trump everything :) Perhaps add Miron into the nickname field....the memorial would then display both versions of the name. Just a thought :)

RE: Just Stopped By!
Glad to hear you got a break to do some genealogy thangs. I went through your new "finds" and there were some pretty interesting figures. Don't you just hate it when work gets in the way?

RE: Gerald Hoffman Manasse #131771148
Hi - would you like me to transfer all of the Manasse line to you? No pressure, just an offer :)

RE: Jonas, Lucy, and Frederick Whitcomb
Hello Susan,

So nice to link with a Whitcomb descendant. And yes, certainly I'll be happy to transfer the graves to you. I just have to figure out how to do it. If it doesn't happen in a day or so, please feel free to give me a little poke.
