I found this on another members profile and it truly expresses how I feel as well: |
"The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people.
My Mom @-->--Ruth Bursey Lavash
Her parents: William Nelson Bursey
Flora Lillian Bradbury Bursey
Her Grandparents:William Robert Bursey
Mary Brown Bursey
Her Great Grandparents:Stephen Brown
Catherine Porter Brown
My Dad's parents:Raymond Lavash
Ellen Veronica Hynes Lavash
My Dad's Grandparents:Caroline Sampson Lavash
and Ernest Paul Lavash
I'm searching for information for the following Families: Lavash, Lavache, Hynes, Higgins, Donohoe,Bursey, Bradbury, Brown, Demeo, Hayes, Sawin. I've been researching my roots for over 20 years and have now started to record cemeteries for others. I've also started adding any Irish and Canadians that I come across, in tribute to my ancesters, military graves & any children that I find - they seem to be the hardest to find & I'm recording them as I find them.
A coin left on a headstone lets the deceased soldier's family know that somebody stopped by to pay their respect. Leaving a penny means you visited. A nickel means that you and the deceased soldier trained at boot camp together. If you served with the soldier, you leave a dime. A quarter is very significant because it means that you were there when that soldier died".
This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -
Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA
Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA
Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma
Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA
Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA
Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA
Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA
Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA
North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA
Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA
Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA
Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, MA
Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA
St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA
St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others
I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well.
Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it:)

Probably the above--pls add photo if you have one. Thanks.

Sharon, I would say you are correct on the tombstones for the two Helens buried in this plot.
Thanks for your work on the Crockers in Mt Auburn. I am slowly going thru your notes. Richard

I see you JUST added this one! Is the other table-looking stone of Allen Curtis, her husband?
Thank you so much,

And plus is it okay if I put it on Ancestry.com? I assume it would be, but thought I would ask!
