|Bio and Links|
I am a member and Director of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and currently President of the 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'!

Of course you can use any photos I have taken. Good luck to you Chip.
|Ron Guilmette||RE: William S. McFarlin|
Thanks for responding. I will check with them.
|Ron Guilmette||William S. McFarlin|
I am researching the History of the Massachusetts State Police - This is our 150th Anniversary 1865-2015. I believe that William S. Mcfarlin was appointed a state police constable in 1874-1875. I have one newspaper article from 1874. I was wondering if you had any information on this connection.

|Virginia Meadowcroft||Shaws at Central Cemetery|
Thank you, Chip, for photographing the burial plot, headstones and creating the missing memorials of the Henry Shaw family. It is always appreciated when photographers photograph sites where headstones are missing. Did you obtain Bertha Shaw Webb's information from cemetery records? Thanks again.
|Gary Bonney||John and Elizabeth Bonney|
Chip: Thanks for the effort for a photo. I have sent a correction to the owner of the two memorials
|jtb||RE: Gordon Quindley|
Thank you for the correction. I'm constantly reminded of the modern power of communication as I get corrections and additions on the small group of memorials I manage.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you. I just remembered that I could edit her family through her memorial. Thanks again. Eleanor and her sister Louise were great neighbors of ours for many years.
