Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member and Director of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and currently President of the Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries, Inc. (FoMC). I have researched my Family History and now really enjoy contributing to the knowledge of all people of the past. My non-family memorials focus on my town of Bridgewater, MA and the neighboring areas.

POSTERITY: I publish photos and create memorials here for the benefit of present and future generations. If you want to publish my gravestone photos on any website that you contribute to (except FindaGrave, according to FAQ#142), include in the photo caption "used with the written permission of Chip5610 (#46997557) at FindaGrave" and keep a screen-print of this page for your records. Copyright laws require you to obtain permission to use a photograph, and conditionally - based on your integrity - you have it! Understand that merely attributing credit does not comply with the law.

Building a cemetery index: I invest a lot of time developing and maintaining the cemetery page listings for Southeastern Massachusetts (maps for Plymouth and Bristol and Norfolk counties) and several other counties in the state. I add new cemeteries and I remove "incorrect" cemeteries. I improve existing cemetery pages by adding cemetery photos and the GPS coordinates. To each cemetery description, I add the GR identifiers from the MA Vital Records books and the MACRIS identifier to each Massachusetts cemetery description. MACRIS identifiers are an important first step in protecting a Massachusetts cemetery. Knowing where a cemetery is located is the first step in preserving the cemetery and finding a grave.

Assistance: The structure of the site engenders collaboration. The "Suggest a Correction (SAC)" feature is great, so use it liberally! My e-mail was set-up specifically for FindaGrave matters, so feel free to send as many SACs as you want. This is a great hobby, and I will work with anyone, happily! My only request: Say 'Thank You'!

I am putting together a Holmes family Tree. I would like to know how you got information for your posts. In particular #344237027 which reads:

We have a letter that Ellen wrote around the time of Frederick's sickness. Bert was born less than a year after Frederick's death. Sadly a daughter was born 12/20/1873, died the next day 12/21 and Ellen's death was the following day -12/22. This left the young child Bert with his 31 year-old father, so Lorenzo and Bert returned to Lorenzo's parent's home on Conant St., Bridgewater.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you so much for taking the time to get a photo of Pamela White's headstone! I don't know when I will ever be able to get there myself so it is very much appreciated.

Provost in Old Saint Thomas Aquinas
Thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request and finding additional family and linking them all. Also thanks for the cemetery correction. I wasn't sure about that. I've changed it to Old Saint Thomas Aquinas per your edit suggestion. You have been very helpful.
