I am a Title Searcher, which ties together my love of history and research. Title searching a piece of property is similar to researching a familyís history.
I have been working, periodically, on mine and my husband's family histories since the 1970's. My love of family stories started in childhood, when my parents would talk about growing up and their relatives at the dinner table. Two of my most prized possessions are a tape recording of my Dad recounting his time on the USS Otis (sub tender) during WW II and my husbandís Grandmother recounting her life and family.
I am currently adding obituaries from the Danbury News Times, and from the family history I am compiling. When I visit my parents graves in Wyckoff, NJ, I will continue the work already started there.
Although, I try to be accurate, if any errors are found or you would like something added, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would also consider taking pictures of local headstones, or buildings for those doing research from a distance.
If anyone has information on the following families, please do not hesitate to contact me. JACKSON, SCHIFFTNER, FUNDER, MASON, HAYES, CONCANNON, HOLLAND, HAVENS, KINNEY, HAYWOOD, GRANERT, VOORHIS, PULIS, KRUFFUS, CHRISTENSDR, THYGESEN, HUNT, CHALMERS, BAILEY, HASLAM, CARLSON, LUHAGENBERRY, HUNT. These families came from England, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Holland and Sweden. They mostly settled in the New York and Boston areas, before moving on to other locations in the USA. I need information on both sides of the Atlantic on them.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has been helped by the information I have entered.

Nancy C "Nan" Andrews #114638213 I was photographing the pictures of Andrews Cemetery up in Santa Fe area and one of the persons is this Nancy. I already put the photos on your page. Could you move it to the right cemetery using the "Burial: [Edit]" button. All you have to do is click on the edit, click "Continue", click "Search for the cemetery" (the name should be there aready) and select the Andrews Cemetery in Maury County that has 69 names in it and hit "Save changes" in the button below. After that, I'll delete my duplicate.
Have you yet determined your connection to the Concannons? If you find you are not a member of our family, I wonder if you would transfer them to my care. Martin James and Anne are my great grandparetns.
I believe you will find that the Ballymore Cemetery aka Craughwell Graveyard is actually located in the County of Galway. The assigned location you have given Creggaun is a townland adjacent to Craughwell. Trust you can satisfy yourself with a little more digging to transfer the memorial and have admin remove the cemetery page for Ballymore.
Robert Coulthurst d 1827 Hi This grave is in St Bartholomew churchyard Chipping, Lancashire. Did you find a gravestone, or did you enter it from some other record? I am interested because I visited the churchyard recently looking for Coulthurst graves and didn't find any, though I know there are many relatives buried there. Thanks
