Bio and Links
Bio Photo My mother started me on my life long journey of genealogy when at six years old she would drag me around to various cemetaries in Maine and Massachusetts. Forty-five years later, I'm still going strong and love learning about people and their pasts.

One of my passions is transcribing old documents. In fact this past February 2012 I was made Massachusetts State Coordinator for the US Gen Web Census. The mission of this project is to coordinate a United States census transcription effort by recruiting, guiding, and helping volunteer transcribers. Our goal is to provide free access to Online Research Data for everyone.

In my own genealogy quest I am researching the following families: Sleeper, Googins, Strout, Stetson, Brewster & Alden. Of particular interest are my Mayflower ancestors. I also have over three hundred research/genealogy books with particular interest to Massachusetts and Maine. Drop me a line if you're looking for something or someone, I may have the info. I love to volunteer my time to help someone research their family tree. Hope to hear from you.

I'm also more than happy to transfer memorials to any direct family members. Please use the edit button on the memorial.

If you find any errors please let me know. I want to be as accurate as possible. A big thanks to folks who take the time to send corrections.

There are getting to be a lot of duplicate memorials out there, so please let me know if I have created a duplicate memorial so I may delete it. What's more important is the memorial, not how many we put up.

We can't look to the future without first remembering our past.

Hi Rebecca:

I submitted some edits for the sisters graves in St. Stephen Cemetery. According to F-A-G, the religious name(s) go into the first and middle name field(s) and if no last name is on the stone, that field should be blank:

John & Sadie Henry
Hi Rebecca,

I filled the photo request for the John and Sadie Henry after some research at the South Thomaston Lirbrary. The inscriptions of the John and Sadie are on the memorial for Zolomy Sewall. It is also noted in the town record that the 1850 Census list a John, Henry and Sadie as children. These are transcribed records however.

Of particular note is that the memorial is beautiful, except that I fear that it will soon topple over without some intervention. It is slowly sliding off of it's base and is at a precarious tilt. It could easily be uprighted before any real damage occurred. Do you know of any family members that might intervene and rescue this stone? I have brought it to the attention of the town, but they have little of no funds to pay for this work.

transfer of memorial 119960226
I am writing to request that you transfer this memorial of my mother, Josephine Proko, to me.

Per FindAGrave:
If the memorial in question is a direct relative within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) to you and the original submitter is not direct family, then they must transfer the memorial.

Thank you.

Hi Rebecca!

Thank you for listing my great-uncle Americo DiGiandomenico. I have some updated info....He was born on January 10th, 2018 and also the newspaper got my great-aunt's name wrong. It is Elvera D'Angelo (I'm not sure if that can be updated or not but thought I would mention it. Thank you and have a great day!

Thank you for what you are doing. You are a gem.

I was in the Grace Dow library in Midland Michigan and read many none published lineage.

There were Mayflower lineage of folders of families just on a shelve.

I Read the entire 1850 deeds where Lincoln and Grant have signed and taken away property going back to 1812.

There were many other major interesting history along at the Museum. Amazing knowledge. There were allot of deceased children there. The headquarters of Dow Chemical. Two major saw mills. None gone. Like the trains.

Many lineages came from Canada and other parts of the United States that did not become a state yet. Workhouses and other buried families from Europe are there sitting. Even the names of some of those who died in the San Franscisco earthquake.
