I am originally from Britain but have lived in Rochester NY for almost 20 years. I have wandered the cemeteries of Monroe County at length and have also had the privilege of walking historic small town cemeteries in England and France.
Please send edits via the FAG "Suggest A Correction" system. Due to time constraints owing to personal circumstances I cannot make extensive additions to existing pages. If you wish a transfer or a major edit please contact the administrators of Find A Grave. I usually accept all auto corrects for names, dates, places of birth and death and family links unless I know for certain they are incorrect. This would mostly only be for my own family members. I make no apologies for any information I accept from other contributors which may not be correct. I expect researchers and genealogists to get their facts right before submitting corrections.
