|Bio and Links|
I got into genealogy about twelve years ago with my family. I then began with my wifes family, Bostwick, she is descended from the original line that came to New Milford in the 1690's. There is so much here that relates to her family. I branched off to every family that was connected to the Bostwick's. I have some 70 family trees which includes the male and female members.|
In photographing the cemetery stones over the years, I began to notice how fast some of them were decaying. I then deceided to document all the stones in and around New Milford. I have some 5,500 now and still adding. Utilizing old , out of print books, I am able to pretty much record the actual inscriptions to go along with the photos. Some stones have been photographed as many as 50 times to get what I consider a perfect photo. Every stone that was originally with a 35mm camera, has been retaken with a digital camera for greater detail. The time of year, time of day, location of the sun all come into play for a good viewable picture.
I cannot travel as much as I would like to due to economics. If I already have requested photos, it is no problem. Traveling is another issue.

Great photo, and very clear. I'm glad you located her and so quickly too. thanks again
|Marilyn Weakley||Daniel Fitzsimons|
In was wondering if you were related to Daniel Fitzsimons and/or if you have any info on him. I am trying to find out if he had a wife named Bridget and what her maiden name was etc. Also, if they ever lived in Yonkers, NY.
|Nancy Weise||Kallenhbach Transfers|
Thank you so much. A digital camera works so well. I've taken many photos myself. I feel it's so important to get them NOW as the weather and years sure can beat them up.
|Kari Olson||photo for Welch|
Richard, would you like to post your good photo of Jerusha Welch , dau of Paul and Jerusha on this memorial... # 35479307
There is one on it, but I believe your photo is just a bit clearer, easier to read. Thanks.
|Kari Olson||Center Cemetery Welches|
And as long as I am thinking about the Welches... were there any stones still standing for Paul or Jerusha his wife? (d1755)? I was hoping.
|Kari Olson||Jerusha Welch|
Please change the photo on memorial # 46805564
to memorial #46805563 . The name is the same but your photo is the daughter, not the mother. Thanks a bunch.

Thank you for the photo, however that stone is for a Jane Starr, is there a Janet Star?

Hi Richard, Thank you for the headstone shots for the Wheaton clan buried in Northville Cemetery. Glad they are so easy to read!
|Jacki, Weymouth Massachusetts||Henry J Booth|
Thank you very much for the photo. I feel better about this being my soldier. You didn't happen to get a GAR marker for him in the area? Should be a Mass Infantry.
