Bio and Links
Bio Photo I fell into the world of ancestry, genealogy, and burial locations when I began my own personal research into my family tree. It has quickly turned into an obcession. Finding headstones, and taking their photos and completing the history as best one can is rewarding.

The most fulfilling of all is linking family members together and have the commom ribbon documented that held them together.

Life is transient, and this activity teaches me of the fragility of life, with a choice to live each day to the fullest.

My husband and I make every effort to enter requested information accurately. If you are not pleased or wish something else, please follow the edit link on the memorial in question and send it to me for corrections.

I look forward to gaining information, and feedback so I may grow as well.

Please know that it is our practice not to copy and paste entire obituaries when creating memorials. I do not publish obituary pictures as well. If I have not included information you feel should be added, please let me know the specific information you would like added. If you are a family member, I certainly will transfer mangement to you within FAG guidelines if that is your wish.

Many Thanks
Pat and Billy,

Just a note to express our sincere thanks for the many great photos you have shot and provided to Find A Grave, in particular the many gravestone photos taken in the Haddam, CT area cemeteries. Your caring photography has given us much genealogical information regarding our early ancestry who lived there in Southeast Connecticut.

Warn regards,
DJ Paul, CWO4(ret.), United States Navy
