|Bio and Links|
I am a member and Director of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and currently President of the Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries, Inc. (FoMC). I have researched my Family History and now really enjoy contributing to the knowledge of all people of the past. My non-family memorials focus on my town of Bridgewater, MA and the neighboring areas.|
POSTERITY: I publish photos and create memorials here for the benefit of present and future generations. If you want to publish my gravestone photos on any website that you contribute to (except FindaGrave, according to FAQ#142), include in the photo caption "used with the written permission of Chip5610 (#46997557) at FindaGrave" and keep a screen-print of this page for your records. Copyright laws require you to obtain permission to use a photograph, and conditionally - based on your integrity - you have it! Understand that merely attributing credit does not comply with the law.
Building a cemetery index: I invest a lot of time developing and maintaining the cemetery page listings for Southeastern Massachusetts (maps for Plymouth and Bristol and Norfolk counties) and several other counties in the state. I add new cemeteries and I remove "incorrect" cemeteries. I improve existing cemetery pages by adding cemetery photos and the GPS coordinates. To each cemetery description, I add the GR identifiers from the MA Vital Records books and the MACRIS identifier to each Massachusetts cemetery description. MACRIS identifiers are an important first step in protecting a Massachusetts cemetery. Knowing where a cemetery is located is the first step in preserving the cemetery and finding a grave.
Assistance: The structure of the site engenders collaboration. The "Suggest a Correction (SAC)" feature is great, so use it liberally! My e-mail was set-up specifically for FindaGrave matters, so feel free to send as many SACs as you want. This is a great hobby, and I will work with anyone, happily! My only request: Say 'Thank You'!

|Laurie Small Webb||Seth Staples|
Hello, I'm current doing my family tree and you have the headstone of Seth Staples Memorial #86145805. The one thing that you don't note is the name of the cemetery where he is buried? Could you please get this information? It would help me out a lot... either way could you email me either way stating if you know the cemetery's name or not.
It would be greatly appreciated.
Laurie Small Webb...

Thank you for filling my request for Mary McGrath's headstone. I didn't get a notification that my request was filled so was very pleasantly surprised today when I was scouring the burials in the National Cemetery. Very much appreciated!

Thank you so very much for the snapshot of this headstone. We appreciate all of you Find a Grave volunteers who help those of us who live so far away from these locations.

Thanks for the gravestone photo. Were you able to read the inscription at all, specifically the death date or age at death?
