I enjoy researching the family. I have helped many others find their relatives. I think Find a Grave is a great way to see tangible evidence of ones family from previous generations. I am a member of the Denison, Geer, Palmer, Miner and Stanton family Associations. I have worked in several Eastern Connecticut Museums. I am a member of many Historical as well as Genealogical societys. Most of my research is in Eastern Ct.,Rhode Island and Eastern Mass. Some family interests include Eccleston, Wheeler, Culver, Burtch, Wilcox and Hillery, Lewis and Bennett, Gallup, Stanton and Noyes. Born, raised and remain in New England. Less than 30 miles from most of my ancestors from the 1600s. I wish that it would REMAIN a place to have a virtual cemetery, A place to memorialize our relatives. Like a real cemetery. That people would respect the final resting place of those who have past. Where children and grandchildren can learn about their ancestors. Its great for those who cant travel to see their loved ones. It wasn't meant to be just another genealogy site. I would like to thank all those who take photos of gravestone's. Some stones are in bad condition and this is one way to help save them for future generations. You are the greatest.
Census records are the most readily available genealogical resource we have. Unfortunately, you canít believe everything you read. Just because itís on the questionnaire doesnít necessarily mean itís true. Until the 1940 census, no indication was made as to the identity of the informant. It could have been your ancestor Ö or a spouse Ö or a neighbor Ö or some kid that happens to be standing in the yard when the enumerator comes by. In other words, since we have no idea who provided the information, it is impossible to determine its validity. Use this resource to provide clues to other information from more reliable records. PS there are lots of mistakes on those also.
Itís spelled wrong. Just because a name is spelled differently on the census than on another document doesnít mean itís ďwrong.Ē When it comes to genealogical records, spelling counts for very little. Please submit proof for correction requests. Lets keep the information as accurate as possible.
From the name of the churchyard you mention, it sounds like she's probably buried in the village of Little Driffield, and not the town of Great Driffield (normally just known as Driffield).
There doesn't appear to be any records at all on this site for Little Driffield. The East Yorkshire Family History publish memorial inscription booklets for all towns and villages in East Yorkshire, and I'm sure there will be a copy of the one for this village in the Hull History Centre. I should be in Hull sometime during the next few days so will be happy to check it out for you.
Union Cemetery Moosup CT I went to this cemetery today and fulfilled your PR for Ellen Frink d 1916...also took a photo of the gravestone of her husband Willard d 1893. Unfortunately the gravestones face North and never have the sun shining on them so are dark and not bleached by the sun. Willard's gravestone is unreadable but it is his because I made a partial copy of the Hale Listings and know that he is buried next to his wife. Good luck with your genealogy, Sara
