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 :)

Sharon, I mistakenly asked you to delete a memorial # 110099090. If you haven't done it, please don't. There should be 3 Caroline Whitcombs: Caroline Morrison Whitcomb, Caroline Parker Higgins Whitcomb, and Carrie A Whitcomb Fox. I am actually the owner of 110099090, but you are the creator, so you would have to delete it, but it is actually correct. Thanks very much.

RE: Jane Lamb Morris
You're very welcome. No I'm not related. I was cleaning up my memorials and thought you would like the memorial.

RE: Giddings and Marden
Wow sorry! At least you have an inside project you can do. Always good to hear from you.

Giddings and Marden
Sharon, you sent me an email about the Giddings plot with all the burials. Are you asking me to add those to find a grave? I want to make sure before I do anything.

I hope you're not out trying to take photo's. I understand you got a few inches of snow!!!

Stay safe.

Robert Beattie at Mount Auburn
Hi Sharon,

Nice to hear from you! Hope you are doing well with all the snow! It is definitely the same Robert Beattie - the cemetery records only show one and the birth/death dates are the same. He married Sara Daggett and that is her family marker. So please go ahead and add the photo to his memorial - Thank for checking!!

Francis Green's memorial
Absolutely, I already deleted mine! Thank you so much for pointing it out to me and if you find I duplicated another of your memorials, do no hesitate to ask.

Your memorial looks absolutely beautiful.
