Genealogy begins as an interest,|
Becomes a hobby;
Continues as an avocation,
Takes over as an obsession,
And in its last stages,
Is an incurable disease.
My family names are RAMSEY (New York), HAYDEN/FRANKLIN/CLARK/EDGERLY (Maine), and HAULK (Kentucky/Indiana).
I live in NH and found this website during the summer of 2012. I enjoy working on my own genealogy, as well as helping out others with photos of their family/ancestors!
I'm currently working on adding memorials with photos to the Lake Luzerne Cemetery in Lake Luzerne, NY. This is a time consuming task, as I'm trying to link family as I go. I feel a strong connection with this cemetery, as I have many family members buried here.
You may use any of the photographs I have taken for your own personal genealogy work and for Ancestry.com trees.

"Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh and blood and bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder how you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you."
-Walter Butler Palmer

you are welcome.
Oh my goodness, I got SO far behind on genealogy! I want to thank you for the fabulous photos of the Woodworths you took for me a year ago! Especially the one with the multiple names over the locations in the cemetary! Thanks so much.

Thanks Stephanie for the grave photo!

Thank you for letting me know of your research. I have sent edits to Old Hopkinton as well but am keeping the Blossom Hill memorial as a placeholder so that others will know not to make the same mistake.

Yes, I wish I had gotten to know my ggAunt Hazel. She was super sharp into her 90's so maybe I could have gotten to know her as a teen on the phone or by letter. I posted a picture of her with my mom, sister and I on her Find A Grave memorial. Eventually I want to write a really good biography for her. Like most women of her generation, she didn't get credit for all she did. She did lots of background work for her more famous brother, Professor Harley Harris Bartlett. Male supervisors took credit for her ideas in her career at the Library of Congress. She and her brother definitely had the genealogy bug. They traced their father's pedigree back 14 generations on nearly all sides! At that time, it was all paper, correspondence, and reading the books at the New England Genealogical Society. They would be so jealous to know the access to information I have now in today's society. I'm supposed to be doing something else, of course, right now. Genealogy is just so compelling. Especially when I have primary sources and sepia original photos in my own house I feel compelled to share with distant cousins out there. My immediate family, not initially interested, are now getting interested in the story.

Hello Stephanie. Again Wow and thanks for volunteering all that Chickering data.
I am looking at the 100 -year old family birthday book of my great great Aunt Angie Hazel Bartlett. (1884-1987)
She was a brilliant lady, related to Angie Davis Bartlett Chickering. Hazel was a Librarian at the Library of Congress and also left me decades worth of sourced paper data on the Bartlett family ancestors. I could spend a lifetime trying to upload scans. Fortunately many have already found the data and put it on line but there is still a lot she discovered that is not posted on the Internet for all the cousins to share.
The fact that Henry's birthday really is in June is yet another confirmation he's the person in her notes.
I have a photo of Angie Davis Bartlett as a girl somewhere. I'll upload it when I find it.
Are you related to this family?

Wow, Stephanie! That photo is brilliant! Thanks for posting such a clear photo even edited to show where each grave is in relation to the others! Very helpful and impressive.
