Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have a strong interest in genealogy, both my own and others, and history in general.

Also, I have come to believe that the documentation created here is an historical record, ultimately of value to future researchers.

Therefore, it is extremely important to be accurate and to include as much verified information as possible, including the correct dates and places of birth of those whom we post to cemeteries.

Linking family members - besides indicating familial relationships - shows the patterns of migration and where families settled in different areas.

It is important to post individuals to the correct cemetery, rather than just creating lists of dead people in order to generate enormous numbers credited to our names.

Nellie Frances Wescott Oakes
Hi Cynthia,
The photo currently attached to Nellie is not correct. The photo is of child Ruby May Barker and her mother Nora May Chapman. Nora is Nellie's daughter. I know this because I have the original photo and I am Ruby's daughter. I am not aware of any photo's of Nellie but would love to find one.
Thanks, Mary Strovink Daukas

Designas @ Fitchburg

I just double checked Theodore's wife's death records. Gertrude also died under the spelling Designas. This generation must have changed the spelling.

RE: Duplicate memorials
I evidently do something wrong trying to notify them, have never got any response, maybe you can do that successfully!

RE: Sarah Emrick Obituary
It's always nice to be able to add more to the memorials! Gibbons made duplicates of your memorials for some reason and others also, I tried to tactfully tell him his should be deleted, but had no luck, maybe he's about #'s? At first thought related to them maybe, but he might have just did the requests, he never added anything. Thanks for adding the information.

Hello: I am wondering how or if you are related to Mary Alice Griffin Staples; also, if you are, I sent you an email with photos of what I believe to be Mary and her husband (his name escapes me). I just wondered if you could check that out, and let me know what you think. Thanks, Ericka
