Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found this on another members profile and it truly expresses how I feel as well:

"The life of a person is more than the dash between two dates. It is my hope that the memorials which I create or manage can make the individuals life fuller, even if just linking to family members or adding a few tidbits of information. Researching and including other family information makes them more than graves, they are people."

I'm searching for information for the following Families: Lavash, Lavache, Hynes, Higgins, Donohoe,Bursey, Bradbury, Brown, Demeo, Hayes, Sawin. I've been researching my roots for over 20 years and have now started to record cemeteries for others.

I've also started adding any Irish and Canadians that I come across, in tribute to my ancesters, military graves & any children that I find - they seem to be the hardest to find & I'm recording them as I find them.

This is an abbreviated list of cemeteries that I have visited so far - I've visited some of these because I have family members there -

Belmont Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Calvary Cemetery & Maus. - Waltham, MA
Cambridge Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Common Street Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Cudworth Cemetery - Scituate, MA
Evergreen Cemetery - Marboro, Ma
Evergreen Cemetery - Leominster, MA
Grove Hill Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Highland Meadow Cemetery - Belmont, MA
Holy Cross Cemetery & Maus. - Malden, MA
Mt. Auburn Cemetery - Watertown/Cambridge, MA
Mt. Feake Cemetery - Waltham, MA
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery - Arlington, MA
Westview Cemetery, Bedford, MA
North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - Cambridge, MA
Olde Burying Place - Arlington, MA
Old Burying Ground, AKA Ye Olde Burying Ground in Lexington, MA
Old Burying Place - Watertown, MA
Puritan Lawn Cemetery - Peabody, Ma
Ridgelawn Cemetery - Watertown, MA
St. Pauls Cemetery - Arlington, MA
St. Patricks Cemetery - Watertown, MA
Woodlawn Cemetery & Crem. - Everett, MA
and a few others.
I normally photograph the whole family plot if it's more than a single grave & will post those as well.

Thank you to Linda Shepard Salzer for all her pics, corrections and updates for all the memorials that I set up for North Cambridge Catholic Cemetery - I greatly appreciate it :)

There were many removals from the tombs late 1849-1864, and many of these removals re-interred at Mount Auburn and Forest Hills, not exclusively, but most. It never, EVER went the other way around, there will be no re-interments from Mount Auburn to the tombs. Ellen is not on the online database at Mount Auburn, but I know that you have a rapport with the folks at Mount Auburn and go into the office often. Your research is impeccable Sharon, I have no doubts that you found her to be there and I will transfer her right now. Thanks for letting me know. Jacki

My first reaction when I saw the picture was "that is BEAUTIFUL". What a great picture. (I always appreciate the pictures, but this one really struck me - crisp,clear.)

Anyway THANK YOU! and may we please use your pictures in our tree? When we always cite the photographer and Find A Grave as our source for any picture we're allowed to use. We want others to know who truly deserves all the credit. Thanks for considering it.

And again thank you for such a great picture.

He asked me why I didn't contact the cemetery via call/mail, etc. It made me feel foolish for even asking.

I'll try to contact the cemetery.

I really appreciate your help. Thank you! Have a good day.

I've spent hours searching the internet for cemetery records for Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. No luck. Do you have any records? Looking for more Caterino's buried there. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
