|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.

|dan barlow||Edward Lamoreaux was KIA Viet Nam|
Edward Lamareaux was KIA Viet Nam. He was a Catholic, but I am trying g to find a gravestone for Edward there in Plainfield. There is no nearby Catholic Cemetery, so I am in hopes to find his grave locally. I served with the same unit in Viet Nam. Dan Barlow
|Laura Goodman||Thank you|
Thank you for the family transfers. I appreciate having the opportunity to manage them.
|Anne Shurtleff Stevens||RE: Duplication question|
I spoke to Dave McCaffrey, and inspected the stone pictures very closely. Add to that a picture of his father' stone, which appears as light as the stone in the wrong location, and has the exact tree n the background, so I am thinking we are safe to merge the memorials. Bless your heart for such rapid a response!
|Anne Shurtleff Stevens||Duplication question|
Because you have done such extensive work, and because your photograph appears on the Old Center Cemetery in Suffield, I am hoping you do not mind my imposing to ask your opinion on these two memorials, neither are yours, but APPEAR to have the same stone pictures, both of which state it is in the West Suffield Cemetery. Thusly, my question, should the memorial in the Old Center Cemetery be removed? Thank you for any time and opinion. I wish I were closer so I could make the determination but am unable, being on the left coast.
This concerns memorials #10950786 and #82976825. Thank you!!!
|Sally Davis||A Big Thank You|
Thank you so much for taking a photo and putting it on William and Annah Trench's memorial. They are my 3rd great grandparents and I really appreciate your efforts.
|Kathren Munro||George Griswold|
Thank you for adding the family links.
Thanks - but no hurry - we are finally seeing buds out here, but I dare not be joyful yet; we've been needing moisture, but snow is not my favorite form! ~Cheers, Shirleen
Jan: Thank you so much for the news articles on George Alma King - I really appreciate the extra effort and your finding his grave-site.
It means a lot to locate family, especially under such circumstances. I am researching what connection George had to the Oughtons and perhaps Willis J. Fuller's family. Your photos are helping a great deal.
Thanks again for all your help. ~Shirleen
Thanks very much for the transfer. I can add a bit to his story.
|Stephen Barneby||David Ritchie ("Richey")|
Thanks very much for transferring the memorial to me. I'll take good care of him!
