Bio and Links
Bio Photo trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.

Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County. I've been known to wander off to Massachusetts, Connecticut and Maine given the opportunity.

Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.

Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.

I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.

My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed... Click here to see the memorials I've added in the past few 7 days.

RE: oh, forgot to mention
I could meet up this Sunday for an hour or two around midday or the following weekend for an hour or two. I have 8 year-old twins at home who don't leave me much time for grave concerns. I think there may be 800 stones which have not been photographed in two big sections. I tend to be slow because when I find a hard to read stone I take the time to transcribe it into a notebook for later reference.

RE: Adaline Sanford
To be honest, I'm not sure what the corrections were, but if it was the dates and places of birth and death, it was etched on the stone.

RE: oh, forgot to mention
If you are interested in photographing in the Old Lyme cemetery, I could e-mail you a map that displays what has been photographed already. I have taken about 1,200 memorial photos there. I estimate there are maybe 900 more to take. As I have uploaded photos of it, I am discovering that about 10% of the memorials are not in the town cemetery records (from which the Find A Grave burials were created).

Thanks for the suggested edits for John and his sister. I am going to accept them, but could you let me know the source if it was other than online vital statistics? I always like to add the source to the memorial if it isn't obvious.

RE: Sarah Allard Holton
Please keep all my Allard transfers as I am not related and am not wokrking on the family lines. I just collect as I go along and try to find appropriate people who can make use of the information.
