Bio and Links
Bio Photo Currently, I am only taking photos in Berkshire County, Massachusetts.

I have retired from the Federal government with 36 years of service. I enjoy taking photos for families of their ancestor's final resting place.
I am currently working on genealogy of my own family tree:
Italian Surnames: Ronco (Runca), Caparrotta,Scapin, Zullo, Maule, Genatte.

French Surnames: Petel, Petelle (Petell), Winnard, Brisson, Foucrault, Deline, Surprenant, Poulin, Erbin, Greenwood, Brisson, Fontaine (Fountain, Lafontaine, LaFountain).

I've done really well on my French side, going back to the 1600's, thanks to Canada keeping great records, not so great on my Italian side, which requires more digging.

My photos cannot be used without prior permission. Please send requests to use my photos through the FAG message tool. Thank you,

Thank you for letting me add your photo to the other two memorials. In the caption, I added "Photo taken by BScapin, Aug 2016." If you want it to read differently, please let me know.

Bridget Hansborough Ford photo
Thank you for the photo. I found it interesting that her maiden name was "Germanized" to Hansburgh!

You work allows so many people to add the final chapter to family histories. I'm sure I speak for all for whom you have memorialized their families with a sincere Thank You!
