Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you are new to findagrave, I suggest you read "frequently asked questions" carefully before making entries or requests.
Since I get a huge volume of requests, please make it easier for me to add biographical information, relationship links, or corrections by going to the page you want linked or corrected and click on "edit." Your info will be emailed directly to me and I can click on the link. If I get the email I will make changes, but generally I don't have time to email you. Please double check dates and info; if multiple items are misspelled or have typos, I am inclined to believe the other material may also be erroneous.

PLEASE NOTE THAT "TRANSFER REQUESTS SHOULD BE FOR DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS" as per Findagrave policy- see FAQs. Please state your relationship in the request. You are able to add photos to any entry.
When the website started there was no option for linking relatives. I am happy to add desired links: please double check your numbers so errors don't make double work for both of us.

I am related to some of the people I have added; entries are also posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.

Please take digital photos of old gravestones in your area; some that exist today may crumble in a season or two, especially in areas with winter frost. In a way, your photo will preserve it. Perhaps it will be the only record of a particular gravestone. Please do not apply any substance to a gravestone to make it more legible; it damages the stone.

You may use my findagrave photos for your personal use, with attribution; anything to be published - please contact me for permission. Click on photo for larger format.

If you are requesting a photo in a large cemetery please take the time to get section and plot number from the cemetery office, if there is one. Your request has a better chance of being fulfilled that way. Most volunteer photographers work on the weekends when cemetery offices are not open.

Verify everything; transcriptions and even information "written in stone" may be inaccurate. A good example is when the date April 31 appears on a gravestone.

Most of the CT cemeteries have already been added to findagrave. When in doubt check under "New" and "Old" to see if you've missed the listing. Please HESITATE before creating a new Connecticut cemetery on findagrave. I'll be happy to research it for you to avoid duplication; so many alternate names and town name changes make it likely it is already listed in another place. The majority of CT cemeteries that existed in 1934 were surveyed on the Hale Index: Although it contains errors and omissions it is still very helpful.

Another source of information is the Ct Gravestone Network:
Your local library or historical society can also assist you. Ask for the person most familiar with the cemeteries or the history of the town.

North Haven Question

My Great Grandfather's death certificate just says he is buried in "North Haven Cemetery". He died in 1935 and I don't find him listed on Find A Grave, though I believe he died poor and senile. What cemetery would he likely be buried in?

Any help is most appreciated!

Thank you I would so much appreciate it. Would like to have my great great grand father's grave marked. I found an obit for his wife also saying she is buried there.

RE: James Thrall
Since he was a veteran I am wondering if the VA would place a new stone for him - I know sometimes they do for missing or worn out stones?

I was wondering as you took a lot of pics in The East Cemetery, and you created a memorial for my great great grand father if you noticed a stone for him?
I looked at the book that lists what stones are there (of course that was 1934, and the book lists his stone as being between Lowell & Waterman in Section 2.
If you live up that way and could take a look for me I would so much appreciate it as I am about 90 miles away. I made the trip today and could not locate it, but I may have missed it as I did not have the exact location when I went.

As usual, I am perpetually confused. I found another year of death for this gentleman that says 1743? Be that as it may, I am requesting permission to include your tombstone photo of this gentleman to my husband's family tree.
Thank you,

RE: Stonington Cemetery?
Thank you. I wanted to be sure that it was the same cemetery with a new name. Thanks for all you do. Brenda

Stonington Cemetery?
I am trying to get info on my father's ancestors. I have an obit for Alvord Nunes (my uncle) which says he is to be buried in Stonington Cemetery. When I went to that cemetery it directed me to Evergreen. He died in 2002. I could not find him listed. Am I doing something wrong? I have done for quite awhile and am now trying to link to I am also looking for Phillip Perry Nunes and Mary (Rego) Nunes my grandparents. Any help or suggestions you might have would be most appreciated. Thanks, Brenda

I am trying to document Hannah's ancestry to link to Edward Seymour, protector of England, brother of the Queen, Jane Seymour. The connections on are mostly other people's trees which do not provide acceptable sources.
Have you researched this family? If so can you share your sources?

Thank you .
