Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been into genealogy since 1983 when a family member contacted me for information. Since then it has been hobby that never ends, a puzzle incomplete. The earlier years were different when I sat in libraries and historical societies throughout the northeast USA and read thru the microfiche. I did photograph headstones, but back then only because it might have been different or pretty. "Find A Grave" is a great treasure.

Living in the historic Wyoming Valley of Northeast PA, there are many cemeteries that are old and need to be preserved or logged soon.
I plan to do my share, and pass it forward .......

Since I also photograph as I travel I add many who are not of my family. If you have a family connection with any of my entries, please feel free to ask for transfer...

I HAVE WALKED AND PHOTOGRAPHED OVER 1300 HEAD STONES AT WEST PITTSTON CEMETERY, LUZERNE CO., SO I CAN POSSIBLY OFFER LOCATION HELP. Also, completed photographing Eaton Cemetery, Mosier Cemetery and other small family burying grounds

My most recent and ongoing projects are transcribing the record books from Pittston Cemetery, and working with the negative scanning project from the Greater Pittston Historical Society ( GPHS ). Also transcribing old record books from the City of Pittston.

I noticed you have a complete list of burials from West Pittston Cem. My great, great grandfather Smith Sutherland is buried there. I have difficulty for years getting some names and photos from there. I was there and took photos of S Sutherland and family. Also the Walter Corey Sutherland mauseleum. I would like photos of George Sutherland and wife grave stones... And I would like the names of who is in the Walter Sutherland mauseleum. Thank you very much. Nan Koch Overstreet

RE: Emma Mazzapicchi Capozucca
I am sooooo sorry Sharleen for not getting to respond back to you sooner on your question.....PLEASE forgive me as I wasn't aware we could send texts here.I'm not totally sure if they are or are not in fact related to Lou the barber as I'm still trying to put those pieces of that puzzle together.I do still have some outstanding grave photo requests on here and was wondering if you'd be kind enough to give me another hand.I'd love to chat with you more on the Biagiotti Family since it seem you may know some of them. If you have time you can text my cell at 1 815 579 2717 or e-mail me at Please let me know and again I apologize for my ignorance and lack of brain activity. Have a gentle and Blessed day my friend...... Chuck
