Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Dee and I've lived mostly in the beautiful historical Hilltowns of Western Massachusetts. I have been a photographer since age of 8yrs. Now I am retired(haha)and still doing freelance photography. I am the past founder of the Historical Commission for a small town nearby and I've worked for several local Historical Societies doing photo preservation work; I specialized in glass plate negatives. Can you tell I love history. There are many "very" rural cemeteries here in Franklin County. My goal along with several other FAG volunteers is to produce a complete inventory of cemeteries with photographs for the towns of Shelburne, Buckland, Hawley, Colrain, Conway, Charlemont, Ashfield, Heath and Florida MA.

I will be happy to Transfer a memorial to you; please request it via Edit/Request Transfer. The majority of the memorials I have posted are done with the hope that the family will find them and continue to add/correct information. My photographs are copyrighted but may be used on your ancestry site with permission. Please send me an email stating how you will use them. Thanks!

RE: Photo permission
You certainly have been busy! That's terrific. Thanks very much for all your work and for your willingness to share. As I add new photos, I will be certain to attribute them to you and I will add an attribution to ones that I may have added earlier, as I come across them. I have always noted Find a Grave as my source, but I am now I am making a concerted effort to include the name of the contributor as well. Again, my sincere appreciation for all you have done! Gwen

Photo permission
Hi Dee,
I've come across more of your photos for people on my tree, Ann Borodell Tobey Carrier, for example) and as you have covered so many of the cemeteries in Franklin County, there are likely to be more. While you did give permission for me to use one of your photos, I did not want to make the assumption that that permission applied across the board. Sorry to be a pest, but I'd much rather ask first than have to remove photos later. Thanks very much! Gwen

Hello Dee,
May I have your permission to use your photo of West Hill Cemetery, with attribution to you, on my family tree, attached to Elizabeth "Betsey" Wood Pool? Thank you for your consideration. Gwen

Hi Dee,
I realized after I sent my first note, that I actually forgot to ask your permission to use the pics...silly me! Anyway, may I use them on my Ancestry site? As I said earlier, I will credit you with the pics.

Thank you!
