I manage~~not own~~the memorials I place on FindaGrave. Please use the SAC (edit feature) when asking for changes. This prevents mistakes because the edit feature connects me to the right memorial. Please read this ★ ☆ ★ FAQs ★ ☆ ★ before you intentionally make a duplicate of a memorial (which is a no no): I do transfer out of guidelines a lot if I feel you will maintain the memorial you request better than I can ~ which means a beloved aunt, cousin, best friend, etc. (Just don't ask for a whole cemetery or a whole list of the same name especially if you happened to find this site and have been a member for a few days). Stick around for awhile - contribute. Although a great place for genealogy this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE!

Permission has been given to GenealogyTrails.com to use my photos for their excellent site.
YES - you have permission to use the photos I took for your personal family files. I would appreciate it if you cited where you found the photo and if possible link back to FindAGrave.com.
However unless you are a nonprofit organization, this is not to be copied & pasted on a commercial site or used for commercial publication without permission.

I love to have additional information to add to the memorials. In winter I go through what I have put up and link families, find additional dates, etc. Although it looks like I have more than I can handle, I have had no problem adding suggested information. I have 35 years of experience in family history research and will be happy to add links or more biographical information on your family.

If you are requesting a photo - all information is helpful. Many people only have flat to the ground memorials, and they are difficult to find. If you know of other family names that might be close by, that is very helpful in large cemeteries. Also if your memorial served in the military, that is very helpful as most cemeteries commemorate with a flag.

I love the challenge of photographing really old stones. I also love the zincs - which were an inexpensive product for the time but have outlasted some of the more expensive marbles and granites. The zincs were very popular during the Prohibition Era because the insides were hollow and easily accessible.

The people we ~meet~ in these resting places are integral in putting together family history. The memorial may be all that is left.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
Thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, taken the time to send me information, added their own memorials, found a dupe or two, and have been kind and respectful.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆
It is so important that if you have an old cemetery near you, to get these stones recorded before weather and/or vandals get to them.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★★ ☆
I do try to wipe off debris and pull some overgrown grass out of the way, but I will not harm the stone in any way. Plus I do not pull up flowers, even if they are wilted.
It's a bit of work to take the photos, re size and sometimes enhance the lettering to be made readable, enter names and upload the photos. I do this lovingly. Please respect that.
★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★ ☆ ★
I have a camera that takes good photos,however the condition of the stone may make it unreadable or the stone is so damaged that there is no information. Bright sunny days might be good for walks but can wash out headstone inscriptions. I do retakes a lot.

Thank you for posting his memorial. You have done a wonderful service.
hate to be a pest but when I go to my grandfather's memorial page it brings me here. I did send an edit request.
I have done this in the past but have forgotten the process. If this is not the proper forum can you walk me through the process
I have something to add which explains why a birth record will not be located for my grandfather. I would like to leave it on the page

Trial
hello, thanks for the pics

On a stone of Francis J Trial, we cant read his wife's name because of the flowers

Do you know it? It should be Lauretta but not enough space it seems. Could be a second wife? or another Francis, so another wife?

Thanks a lot

Mary Fenn 1771-1857
Just wanted to add some information. She was the daughter of Thaddeus and Thankful (Alcox/Alcock) Baldwin. She married Capt. Lyman Fenn on June 27, 1796 in Plymouth, CT according to the Northbury Church Records. Her siblings were Thankful, Hannah, Lydia, Thaddeus, Lyman and Nice.

Thank-you for maintaining her site.

Otis Fisk # 55707144
Hi,

Thank you for the photos of my ancestor Otis Fisk's plot in Middletown, CT [# 55707144]. Otis was a coal merchant, and operated a store near his steamboat dock in Middletown, CT. He died as a result of injuries in a train accident in Burlington, NJ (covered by large eastern newspapers).

Otis had another son, not mentioned on the list of children on Findagrave.com: Frederick Otis Fisk, b. 25 Dec 1828, Middletown, Middlesex, CT; d. 27 May 1899 in Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey. He is buried in The Historic Jersey City & Harsimus Cemetery. His grave is in Block #28, Lot #101, Grave #4.

Frederick Otis Fisk went west during the gold rush and had a son with Maria Estalles. His name was Frederick Savino Fisk, born 19Feb1853, in Chile Gulch, California. After his father passed in 1855 Frederick Otis Fisk returned Middletown. He later married Georgianna Gove in Middletown, CT and fathered more children. I know of four born in CT. Walter H. Fisk, Henry (Harry) Fisk, Florance Fisk (died at 21 months) and Evaline Fisk. Frederick Otis then moved with his family to Jersey City, NJ, (and Hoboken, NJ) where he worked as a clerk and later dock master. Can you please add Frederick Otis to the list of children, and any additional information you feel can be included?

Thank you again
