|Bio and Links|
I am a member and Director of Plymouth County Genealogists, Inc. (PCGI), and currently President of the Friends of Middleborough Cemeteries, Inc. (FoMC). I have researched my Family History and now really enjoy contributing to the knowledge of all people of the past. My non-family memorials focus on my town of Bridgewater, MA and the neighboring areas.|
POSTERITY: I publish photos and create memorials here for the benefit of present and future generations. If you want to publish my gravestone photos on any website that you contribute to (except FindaGrave, according to FAQ#142), include in the photo caption "used with the written permission of Chip5610 (#46997557) at FindaGrave" and keep a screen-print of this page for your records. Copyright laws require you to obtain permission to use a photograph, and conditionally - based on your integrity - you have it! Understand that merely attributing credit does not comply with the law.
Building a cemetery index: I invest a lot of time developing and maintaining the cemetery page listings for Southeastern Massachusetts (maps for Plymouth and Bristol and Norfolk counties) and several other counties in the state. I add new cemeteries and I remove "incorrect" cemeteries. I improve existing cemetery pages by adding cemetery photos and the GPS coordinates. To each cemetery description, I add the GR identifiers from the MA Vital Records books and the MACRIS identifier to each Massachusetts cemetery description. MACRIS identifiers are an important first step in protecting a Massachusetts cemetery. Knowing where a cemetery is located is the first step in preserving the cemetery and finding a grave.
Assistance: The structure of the site engenders collaboration. The "Suggest a Correction (SAC)" feature is great, so use it liberally! My e-mail was set-up specifically for FindaGrave matters, so feel free to send as many SACs as you want. This is a great hobby, and I will work with anyone, happily! My only request: Say 'Thank You'!

Thank you so much for volunteering your time to photograph headstones. In particular, thank you for taking a photo of my parents' headstone.
|Jim Baxter Jr||Thank You!!!|
Thanks so much for the Dunbar picture.
Your effort is greatly appreciated.
|Leslie C.||Otis Perry|
Thank you for the new picture of Otis Perry's headstone. He was my 4th great uncle.
|Cory (CSC)||Cornelius & Benjamin White|
I am requesting that you please remove/unlink Hannah Hunt Brundage (141873965) as the mother of Cornelius (97790919) & Benjamin White (117541109).
John's mother was another Hannah (Hunt) White (1649-1721) who was married to Daniel White and never to John Brundage.
P.S. Thanks again for the photo request for Daniel White some time ago! If I ever make it to Boston I will have to visit his cemetery. I hope someone will discover Hannah (Hunt) White and where she is buried to connect the family. I failed to find her through historical obituaries.
|JEFFREY BOTH||Thank you Chip!|
I appreciate you finding my ggg..grandmother's stone. Can you elaborate on what was done with the fragment? Was the fragment buried?
|DKMac||John Adams, Jr. & Jane James|
I was reading your memorial for John. I was just reading family pages on RootsWeb (which I know isn't considered the greatest source) and found considerable sourced information on John. I used his name, spouse name of James and clicked notes. He has a pretty interesting history leaving Marshfield after Jane's death, going to Flushing NY, and finally removing to NJ. Some of this is documented by deeds and Quaker records.
