Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family, all 4 sides - names I am working on are Picariello; Ragosta; Kozar; Briggs; Permatteo/Piermatteo and all the branches from these names.

I am originally from and grew up in Needham, MA and now live in Bellingham, MA for the past 40 years. I try to add Bellingham and Needham resident's memorial when I can.

Along my searches, if I come across someone deceased, I sometimes add the notice to this site. If you wish I didn't, please let me know and I will delete it. But, remember, if someone is producing a family tree, these entries are very useful and the listed people will never be forgotten.

RE: Margaret A. Briggs #90731453
Thank you, but a transfer isn't necessary. Just working on adding entries for the entire cemetery and thought there may be a connection for you.

RE: Eric Corriveau
Thank you so much for transferring his memorial.

I saw from your profile that you live in Bellingham, Can I ask for a big favor. My grandparents (Cyprien & Corinne Corriveau) lived in Woonsocket and were buried in St John the Baptist in Warren, Rhode Island.
I have had a request in since 2013 and so far no-one has offered to claim it. Could you help me?
Thank you for considering my request.

RE: Mary Curran; 43934241
Hi Toni,
That was very thoughtful of you to transfer the Curran's memorial over to me but honestly I did feel they were in good caring hands. You had taken the time to write two long bio's far from my contribution of a couple of photos. Aunt Mae was like a second mom to me; we bonded in the WWII years when she lived with my mom and I at Grandmother McGovern's home in Dorchester, Mass. My dad and uncle Tim were overseas and Mae was working the night shift at the Boston City Hospital.

From your photo I can see the strong family resemblance with Dorrie. You must tell her how our paths crossed; small world, isn't it? Thanks again for your thoughtfulness.

Stephen & Elisabeth
Hi GrannyT,
Thank you so much for transferring Stephen & Elisabeth Torrey to me so promptly. I have made a few changes - full place information and dates where missing. In addition I have included source information. What was interesting is that in the process of updating these memorials, I discovered that there is a duplicate for Stephen. Yours takes precedence because it was done on Nov. 25, 2007, whereas the other was created April 29, 2011. I will be contacting the maintainer tomorrow and ask that she remove her duplicate.

Added the info you sent to her memorial listed in the cemetery so you can go ahead and delete your Burial Unknown.
