|Bio and Links|
If you are new to findagrave, I suggest you read "frequently asked questions" carefully before making entries or requests. |
Since I get a huge volume of requests, please make it easier for me to add biographical information, relationship links, or corrections by going to the page you want linked or corrected and click on "edit." Your info will be emailed directly to me and I can click on the link. If I get the email I will make changes, but generally I don't have time to email you. Please double check dates and info; if multiple items are misspelled or have typos, I am inclined to believe the other material may also be erroneous.
PLEASE NOTE THAT "TRANSFER REQUESTS SHOULD BE FOR DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS" as per Findagrave policy- see FAQs. Please state your relationship in the request. You are able to add photos to any entry.
When the website started there was no option for linking relatives. I am happy to add desired links: please double check your numbers so errors don't make double work for both of us.
I am related to some of the people I have added; entries are also posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.
Please take digital photos of old gravestones in your area; some that exist today may crumble in a season or two, especially in areas with winter frost. In a way, your photo will preserve it. Perhaps it will be the only record of a particular gravestone. Please do not apply any substance to a gravestone to make it more legible; it damages the stone.
You may use my findagrave photos for your personal use, with attribution; anything to be published - please contact me for permission. Click on photo for larger format.
If you are requesting a photo in a large cemetery please take the time to get section and plot number from the cemetery office, if there is one. Your request has a better chance of being fulfilled that way. Most volunteer photographers work on the weekends when cemetery offices are not open.
Verify everything; transcriptions and even information "written in stone" may be inaccurate. A good example is when the date April 31 appears on a gravestone.
Most of the CT cemeteries have already been added to findagrave. When in doubt check under "New" and "Old" to see if you've missed the listing. Please HESITATE before creating a new Connecticut cemetery on findagrave. I'll be happy to research it for you to avoid duplication; so many alternate names and town name changes make it likely it is already listed in another place. The majority of CT cemeteries that existed in 1934 were surveyed on the Hale Index: www.cslib.org/halecol.htm. Although it contains errors and omissions it is still very helpful.
Another source of information is the Ct Gravestone Network: www.ctgravestones.com.
Your local library or historical society can also assist you. Ask for the person most familiar with the cemeteries or the history of the town.
For additional help visit the findagrave forums.

P.S. That is the Buckland Cemetery in Manchester, Ct
I need to contact someone in charge of burials of cremains before Nov 8th. I found the parent's grave, need to find it in cem.itself, and need to know about burial of cremains. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org asap.

Just wanted to let you know I will be coming out to The East Cemetery to place the stone for my great great grand father, and I also had one made for his wife. I will be there about 3:00 for a ceremony which I am hoping a few of my children will come with me.

You posted some photos for this cemetery and I was wondering if you had a close up photo of the plaque that lists the names of the people buried here who were revolutionary soldiers. If so could you post on the page or email to me? firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!

Hello, Do you have a headstone photo for John Burr who is buried in the Old Stratfield Cemetery? Could you put in a photo request for it? - Thanks, Shelley

My name is Margaret Reed Maryott and from my research in genealogy I feel very positive that Mary is the paternal grandmother of my step-mother Eleanor Mixson Reed. May I please use the photo that you took of her headstone. I also did an edit regarding her name: Mary Martha Stowe Mixson. I was wondering if by any chance when you were taking the photos in the Masonic Cemetery if there was one of her husband Gardiner Dodge Mixson. Mary was living in the Masonic Home in Wallingford, New Haven, when she died. Thanking you again for taking the photo. I will give you full credit for the photo. Looking forward to hearing from you, Margaret.
