|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.

Awesome. Edits sent!
|Cherie_in_OC||Elizabeth Howd Hoadley Robinson Stone :-)|
Hi, Jan! Thanks for all your work here. Wondering if these two memorials might be for the same person and the one without the stone photo might be a Centopath. She died in Guilford and I work like to submit her bio info, but would like to do it on the proper one. Thanks!

Thank you very much for processing my edit suggestions so quickly (maiden name, date and place of birth), and for linking Eunice to her parents. Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail are truly appreciated.

That's fine, though I thin I have one relative that died in Meriden, and her name was Ruth E. (Neumann) Waterhouse, she was my great grandfather's sister-in-law. Ruth's death date is 12/4/1986, I know her burial, but I'm wondering if Ruth and Charles Waterhouse had any children or not.

Hey my great grandfather's brother and his wife, Elmer and Dorothy Waterhouse, both died in Bristol, CT. I was wondering if you lookup obituaries too?

If you entered a burial record but there is no picture, does that mean there is no headstone. Specifically looking at John Pettet buried at Hillside Cemetery in Sharon, Litchfield, CT. I was there and found Samuel, Margaret, Gideon and Martha. But not Joel or John. There is a picture posted of Joel's somewhere that I also did not find while I was there.
|Elida||Transfer Thank You|
Thanks for the quick turnaround on processing the transfer requests for Martha and Martin Bidwell.

Hi Jan. Do you have contact information for Sandy Hook Cemetery on Riverside Road in CT? I'm looking for a relative who is supposed to be buried there. Thank you, Lucy.
