Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries, Inc. (FoMC). I have researched my Family History and now really enjoy contributing to the knowledge of all people of the past. My non-family memorials focus on my town of Bridgewater, MA and the neighboring areas.

POSTERITY: I publish photos and create memorials here for the benefit of present and future generations. If you want to publish my gravestone photos on any website that you contribute to (except FindaGrave, according to FAQ#142), include in the photo caption used with the written permission of Chip5610 (#46997557) at FindaGrave and keep a screen-print of this page for your records. Copyright laws require you to obtain permission to use a photograph, and conditionally - based on your integrity - you have it! Understand that merely attributing credit does not comply with the law.

Building a cemetery index: I invest a lot of time developing and maintaining the cemetery page listings for Southeastern Massachusetts (maps for Plymouth and Bristol and Norfolk counties) and several other counties in the state. I add new cemeteries and I remove "incorrect" cemeteries. I improve existing cemetery pages by adding cemetery photos and the GPS coordinates. To each cemetery description, I add the GR identifiers from the MA Vital Records books and the MACRIS identifier to each Massachusetts cemetery description. MACRIS identifiers are an important first step in protecting a Massachusetts cemetery. Knowing where a cemetery is located is the first step in preserving the cemetery and finding a grave.

Assistance: The structure of the site engenders collaboration. The "Suggest a Correction (SAC)" feature is great, so use it liberally! My e-mail was set-up specifically for FindaGrave matters, so feel free to send as many SACs as you want. This is a great hobby, and I will work with anyone, happily! My only request: Say 'Thank You'!

Adrienne Girardin Breach
I'd appreciate your transferring my aunt Ann's (#103138105) memorial page to me. She was one of 10 children of Pierre (#134374097) and Lea (#134374617) Girardin; I have linked all 9 of them but awaiting Adrienne's transfer to complete.
Thanks for any help!

Sturtevants in Halifax Cemetery
I just saw your memorials and photos of Priscilla Palmer Sturtevant and her family. She is my 4th Great Grandmother. I have been taking a break from genealogy for a while, but Ancestry sent me an email with the hint. Thanks again for filling in my family cemetery locations.

Thank you so much for the photo of the gravestone of Sampson and Rebecca Washburn's daughter. I am moving overseas next year and unfortunately am not likely to get there to take the photo myself. I really appreciate it.
