Bio Photo DEFINITION OF GENEALOGY: "To dig up the dead and tick off the living"

I love to walk through cemeteries. I find it very peaceful. I take many photos of headstones and memorials.

IF YOU SEE A MEMORIAL THAT I HAVE PLACED, BE 99% SURE THAT I HAVE THE PHOTO OF IT. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE A PHOTO ON MY MEMORIALS WITHOUT PERMISSION OR REQUEST. I will gladly transfer any memorial that is part of YOUR genealogy. THANK YOU. People have been placing photos and they are at times of such poor quality.

For 99.9% of my MEMORIALS, I DO have a photo.

Also, if I have stepped on anyone's toes who is doing genealogy research on their family, you can request that I remove my listing or transfer so that you can place your family history there. I've been in those shoes. Please correct me if you feel I have the wrong info. I really enjoy being able to help people find pieces of their past. Keeping information accurate is very important in preserving our history. Also, keeping this in mind, IF YOU WANT SOMEONE LINKED AND THEY ARE RELATED TO YOU, I WILL TRANSFER THE MEMORIALS TO YOU. You do need to REQUEST this, I am unable to read minds. I do not presume to know someone's genealogical connections,I just take pictures and hope that it may help someone find their roots. I AM NOT ON THIS SITE TO DO SOMEONE ELSES GENEALOGY. I would also appreciate it if you want to use my photos that you just ask. Thank you.
Again, should anyone find a relative among my entries and would like to add a bio, I will gladly transfer or delete the entry.

I am related to this Bradshaw family in Oakville, watertown, Connecticut, and would very much like to contact any of these folks. I have photographs of the family that go back to late 1800s and early 1900s, and want to reach them. I am the primary researcher of our Burkinshaw family Thank you.

Edward Rutledge Mallette
I believe there is a correction needed on the tombstone because it shows Edward Rutledge Mallette died in 1900 but you have listed 1898.

I found a newspaper article from St. Louis, MO where Edward R. Mallette killed himself on June 15, 1900 and it mentioned his brother Stanley A. Mallette, his father Edward B. Mallette of Connecticut.

Ellen Hoadley Payne's HUSBAND
Hi, I am related to Ellen Hoadley PAYNE (Find A Grave # 22608754) and am hunting for her husband Sheldon Franklin Payne's burial location. Ellen is buried with her Hoadley family in Hillside Cemetery in Naugatuck. Sheldon's 1st wife, Mary Price Payne is buried in Grove Cemetery in Naugatuck. I'm guessing that Sheldon is also buried in one of these 2 cemeteries. Do you KNOW per chance or have Hale's Inscriptions to be able to look up where he is buried? I would like to create a Find A Grave MEMORIAL for him, but would like to confirm where he is buried. thanks so much, Renee

Hi you posted a photo to memorial

The memorial is a burial unknown - If you remember where you took the photo could you send an edit to the manager for burial update? Thanks.

Photo on 42640992

I am wondering if there is any way you can tell me where the photo you posted on #42640992 came from. I have never seen it before and Gladys Solberg (woman in the photo) was my grandmother.

Thank you...

RE: Cheney Cemetery
That's great, but there's still duplicate entries in two different cemeteries on the site that need to be dealt with. The easiest thing is for the contributors who created the entries to get together to figure out what to do to resolve the problem. Whether it's one cemetery or two cemeteries, and what to do with the duplicate entries once the problem is solved.

If it's supposed to be only one cemetery, the two need to be merged by submitting a request on the Cemetery Fix thread on the Forums here:

then the dupe entries have to be deleted or merged by sending in requests to the Edit email address.

If it's supposed to be two different cemeteries on the site, the contributor who has them in the wrong cemetery needs to delete their entries or request them to be merged by sending in requests to the Edit email address.

I hope the other contributor(s) will work with you to resolve this and clean up the mess.

thanks, Karyn
