Bio and Links
Bio Photo The index is now ready for distribution - contact me if you want a copy of it.

I have spoken to the Poughkeepsie Journal (owned by Gannett Publications), who referred me back to their newspaper where is stated that all obituaries, pictures and information MAY be used by the reader in whatever way they wish, including reproduction for reposting electronically in part or whole for publishing. With this in mind it is my notification that I do have permission to post the obituaries I have placed on memorials and ask that they remain.
I am currently working on putting together a book to include the over 3,000 obituaries I have located for family members with indexing and cross-referencing. This project will probably take up most of my next few months, but I will still be posting here on Findagrave as I discover new family members. Anyone interested in copy of this book can contact me at my e-mail address. Since it is looking to be a large book, I may split into two parts: men and women.
I have been researching my family tree for about 30 years now, and just started really going through graveyards looking for family members about 20 years ago. I have found more information on the internet in the short time I have been researching here than in all the time I spent in libraries, courthouses, and town halls. I will be taking pictures of gravestones of as many people as I can and adding to local cemeteries and over the spring, summer and fall of 2016. If anyone has a family member, that I have added to this site, to yourself (who is not a direct family member for myself) please let me know and I will be happy to transfer ownership to you. I'd would rather have family members maintain memorials than a stranger who has no connection, but I feel no burial place should be neglected or forgotten. If there is someone or a graveyard you wish me to find for you in the Columbia, Dutchess and Ulster County areas let me know and I will add it to my travels. My hope is to do a complete census of as many cemeteries as possible over the next few years.
Another note: for old New York newspaper articles you can use They have papers from the 1700's to 2000's. You can search for family members there.
One more note: I hereby give permission for all to use photos I have posted. I feel that if these are your family you have as much right to add them as I do. You do not need to ask, and I do not require you to attribute them to me, unless you wish too. It is good to find loved ones and I am happy that if I have found yours for you.

Georgianna is in my family tree. She was born Jan 1874 but I don't have her date of death. Do you know how I could find out? Thank you

Dear Patrick, thank you for the amazing work you have been performing! The numbers are mind-boggling!

I wanted to inquire about the possibility of management transfer of two memorials you created;

1. George A. Ellsworth 116882917 (my great grandfather)

and his daughter (same gravestone)

2. Jessie Ellsworth 116882975 (my great aunt)

Thank you for considering and agin, thank you for your remarkable contributions to this important initiative!

Violet Hilden.
I fixed the date of birth -- many times the year is rounded to the next year if it is the last half of the year.

That obituary gave me her mother's name. I've searched for it for years. Thanks for posting it.
