Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and 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 just connected to the Mayflower group, but all of my ancestors aren't on Find A Grave yet.

Are you a member of the Mayflower society?

Thank you very much for the photos of my ancestor, Caroline (Perkins) Reed and her husband Josiah.

You did a masterful job of capturing the inscriptions given the condition of the stones!

As always, thank you for your time and effort! Great photos. I've heard that access to Ashland is restricted. If true, is it for preservation?

Thank you so much for your photos of the Alden family graves in Plymouth. I would love to include them in our family tree, with your permission. I tend to keep my tree private, but I do share from time to time with family and distant relatives. I always include credits for the photographer and also the memorial numbers for each ancestor. I see you have already posted a credit line you would like used, but I am still asking permission first out of respect and gratitude. Many thanks for your work and your consideration.
