I like researching family history and have traced several ancestors to the English "Great Migration" of the 1630's. Gravestones provide provide valuable information and a tangible link to the past.

RE: Mapledale
Hi Wayne,

Mapledale is a section of Evergreen Cemetery, and according to the director of Evergreen, it was never a cemetery in its own right. Evergreen was established in 1848, so it was certainly in existence when George Donahue surveyed it. The map of the entire Evergreen Cemetery shows the Mapledale area on the right. It's quite possible that somewhere in the transcription process, a mistake was made. I guess the bottom line is if a relative wants to visit an ancestor's resting place, they'll find it in Evergreen, not Mapledale.

I've run across other cemeteries that have been absorbed into larger cemeteries or renamed since the Hale Collection was completed. It's a continuing struggle to get them sorted out.

If you have any questions regarding cemeteries in the greater New Haven area, please let me know, as that's my home. Thanks very much for your help.
