Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching the Camp families for over 40 years as a request from my grandparents, Otis and Litha Camp, who raised me from an infant. I have visited many states and even been to Europe to get information. My wife is probably tired of me using our vacation time and money to visit Camp locations and cemeteries. I do this to keep the Camp memories alive and help us to remember them.

I had gotten started with Find-A-Grave a bit late; consequently, many Camp memorials had been already created. To all you wonderful people who created memorials and have graciously transferred them to me, I THANK YOU!! I will take good care of my ancestors and Camp relatives.

To all you wonderful photographers who have taken headstone photos, THANK YOU!! It all helps to honor our families!

To those of you who have asked, I do NOT have my genealogy on I keep it in a database in my computer where I have complete control over it. HOWEVER, I am willing to help fellow Camp researchers with any questions about the Camp families.

In my spare time I publish genealogy books for others as well as for myself. I have published several books on the Camps of New England. I have finished my book on the Camp Families from Edward Camp; all copies have been sold so we are adding more recent information and creating a second printing. A DVD version will be available soon as well. Contact me if interested.

William H Camp 68852257
He is buried in Boughton, although there is no stone from him. McKain and Boughton are easily confused. Sometimes Boughton is called East McKain.

RE: Camp headstone
I'm glad to transfer it! I'd rather family… any family connection maintain their memorials… it just seems right! And yes… I've run into those people who refuse to transfer… even my grandparents!!! So, I try to be the opposite! Happy family hunting! Blessings, Dana

Hi Jim! Thanks for the update to Hannah's memorial! I wanted to check and see if you are related to her or have a connection with her? If so, I'd be happy to transfer her to your care. I'm not related at all.. just happened to take her photo while I was hunting down other requests. Just let me know! Blessings, Dana
