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 :)

RE: Re: Edith Spencer
She had two sisters, one buried in Mount Auburn. I've not been able to find her other sister, Ava who married a Daggett. Both "disappear" after 1920. During the Civil War, Edith's father Albert lead a detail which included my great grandfather. The detail of 5 men escorted Gov. Vance of North Carolina to Washington, DC for incarceration.

RE: Lucy Stickney
No problem! I went back and retook the photos because my first ones were not very good due to the lighting. I look for you every week that I am at Mt. Auburn, hopefully we will run into each other again! I have been trying to do the photos in groupings by map location (A1, B1, C1, etc.) I make a spreadsheet of all the requests and then add the map location in order to clear them out but I cannot get the number under 200!! I also try to claim at least one in each plot in case we happen to be working there at the same time - I claim them as I find them in the cemetery because as you know you never can tell what you can find there. I start with a list of 100 or so but never find that many in one trip and we can only claim 20 anyway. Let me know if there is a way you want me to communicate what I am working on at Mt. Auburn - I would be happy to send you the list as I create it if it is helpful to you. Hope all is well with you!
