Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in rural western New York and, for most of my life, believed that my father's family had somehow sprung from the soil thereabouts. Not so. Recovering from major surgery three years ago left me with time on my hands that I used in genealogical research. Among other things, I learned that his side of the family were among those who first settled Massachusetts, and that their descendants had slowly but steadily migrated westward.

I now live in New Haven, Connecticut, and I find that I'm spending increasing amounts of time on ancestry.com and findagrave.com. A couple of hours on a motorcycle can get me to virtually any cemetery in Connecticut and Rhode Island, and many cemeteries in Massachusetts, eastern New York State, and southern Vermont and New Hampshire -- and I have a personal, vested interest in visiting them. So let me know if you need help. If I can help, I'll be happy to lend a hand!

Commemorative stele in memory of some American soldiers who died during the Normandy landings.
Hello.

I am French and quite impressed since a very early age by the events surrounding D Day, and by the tremendous testimony they impart, I am the initiator, for the 70th birthday of D-DAY, of a commemorative stele in memory of some American soldiers who died during the Normandy landings. Particularly sensitive to the value of service to others, I have always felt the urge to transmit to the younger generations the memory of those valiant soldiers who, thanks to the selfless sacrifice of their lives, took part in the tremendous movement which lead to the liberation of Europe from Nazi oppression.
As a complement to this commemoration, I have written a book both in French and English which tells the story of some of those men.

Would you please allow me to use the pictures of Raymond E. Calandrella in my book?
My e-mail address is avevalleegilles@yahoo.fr

Best regards.

Schodac Cemetery
Don, I just notice that we now have two listings for Schodac Cemetery! Yours done in 2010 and Tammi Seymour's done in 2011 with photos posted as well. Is there a way to merge and delete??

North Schodc Road Cemetery
Donald,

My family is from Tioga County, PA and I have an Adam Hart (memorial #55634087) who is one of my ancestors!

Would you be able to tell me where exactly this cemetery is located? I believe Richmond Township is in Mansfield, correct?

I just need more information, so when I get up there the next month, I'll be able to locate this cemetery.

I appreciate any assistance you can give.

"Frankie"

Don,

Thank you very much for doing this.

It is very difficult for me to get down to New Haven. It's also hard to get information from St Bernard's as the Cemetery office is so busy.

You are a great person to be helping all of us with photo requests!

Thanks again,

Sherry

Donald,

My heart is jumping for joy at the sight of my 2nd g-grandparents and 3rd great grandfather's markers at St. Bernard's Cemetery. I had no idea they even had markers and I now know their point of origin in Ireland. All new information. Thanks for all your work in connecting people to their ancestors.
