Bio and Links
Long time genealogy enthusiast. Family ties to Middleborough, MA and Harwich, MA. (Descendant of many Mayflower passengers) (interest in Tillson, Cahoon, Morse, Tinkham, Leach, LeBaron...)Been visiting cemeteries as long as I can remember. Have volunteered to be a carekeeper for a section of Nemasket Cemetery in Middleboro. I naturally choose the section with my grandparents, great and great-great grandparents. I know many of the old timers in this section are distant relatives too.
(edit- Jan 2015, since I wrote the paragraph above I have found that a few of the people in my section of Nemasket are indeed Grt x4 and Grt x6 grandparents! My reward for raking, and raking, and raking...!)

This is how I approach Ancestry and Find A Grave. Before I enter data into my tree or use on a Find A Grave memorial I try to find some vital record, newspaper mention, census, or such to support the fact. I've seen far too many cases of people copying and pasting from an un-sourced tree and then someone else copies that and then someone... well you get the idea. Will I made a mistake, sure but I try my hardest not to.

If you'd like to have a memorial transferred let me know. Other than folks in my tree, you can expect a transfer. I feel the memorials don't belong to me- they belong with family or friends and if you're asking me then you must care enough to honor them with the memorial.

Transfers done
Hi Sarah:
All set the memorials of Luther and Cynthia
Tillson have been transferred to you.
I understand what you mean about "Burial
Unknown," I will not link my memorials to
them, to do so would be supporting them.
There is a person on Find A Grave that puts
more people into unknown burials then he has
in cemeteries and many of his memorials are
born unknown, died unknown! What kind of
sense does that make? I know Luther's parents
are in burial unknown so I didn't link Luther
up with them. Maybe you can ask the creator
to transfer them to you and try to find where
they are buried?
Also, please send me by public message the
source that you used for the death date
and place of Florence Weston #131894261.
Take Care,
Sandy
