Bio and Links
I am a Title Searcher, which ties together my love of history and research. Title searching a piece of property is similar to researching a familyís history.

I have been working, periodically, on mine and my husband's family histories since the 1970's. My love of family stories started in childhood, when my parents would talk about growing up and their relatives at the dinner table. Two of my most prized possessions are a tape recording of my Dad recounting his time on the USS Otis (sub tender) during WW II and my husbandís Grandmother recounting her life and family.

I am currently adding obituaries from the Danbury News Times, and from the family history I am compiling. When I visit my parents graves in Wyckoff, NJ, I will continue the work already started there.

Although, I try to be accurate, if any errors are found or you would like something added, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would also consider taking pictures of local headstones, or buildings for those doing research from a distance.

If anyone has information on the following families, please do not hesitate to contact me. JACKSON, SCHIFFTNER, FUNDER, MASON, HAYES, CONCANNON, HOLLAND, HAVENS, KINNEY, HAYWOOD, GRANERT, VOORHIS, PULIS, KRUFFUS, CHRISTENSDR, THYGESEN, HUNT, CHALMERS, BAILEY, HASLAM, CARLSON, LUHAGENBERRY, HUNT.
These families came from England, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Holland and Sweden. They mostly settled in the New York and Boston areas, before moving on to other locations in the USA. I need information on both sides of the Atlantic on them.

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has been helped by the information I have entered.

I sent you an edit request, asking for you to link Matilda Hallet Leviness (76219113) to her daughter, Clementine Leviness (16958537)). You denied the request. I thought it would be obvious that Thirza Vottier (6219113) was incorrectly linked. Matilda Hallet Leviness has the digit 7 at the beginning of her memorial number. It was obviously accidentlly omitted when the number was entered.You'll notice that Clementine's father remarried after her mother died in 1886. That's why Clementine has a sister almost 30 years older. Thirza Vottier was not even alive when Clementine's sister was born.

Josephine Palmer
After Arthur's death, she married Leroy B. Stuart on 3 Feb 1973, in Danbury, Connecticut.

The Connecticut death index shows her, Josephine A. Stuart, as passing away on 3 Aug 1977 in Danbury.

If you look at the Social Security applications and claims index for her sons Joseph Edward Palmer and Arthur Cornell Palmer, you see the parents listed as Arthur W. Palmer and Josephine A. Cornell.

What information do you have that contradicts this?
