Greetings from Rutland County, Vermont!

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs/Help).

As of 2019, my health precludes me from being "in the field" as much as I'd really like anymore (though I'm trying!). If I have helped you in the past, I may no longer be able to, and for that I apologize. However, I'm still perfectly capable of working on the site, so if there is anything I can do for you there, continue to send me what you have.

2021 Covid-19 Addendum: I am still going out to cemeteries but mostly Rutland County. I can not guarantee any other Vermont counties this year. I am not going to make it to New Hampshire. I hopefully will be making a foray or two into New York. Please follow travel guidelines where you live and where you would like to go to help keep yourself and everyone else safe and healthy!

Use the edit tab on the upper right hand corner of the memorial in question. Know what you are talking about, please. I get my fair share of guesswork and impossible/incestuous family links. Vermont and New England have a lot of vital records online for free. Use them.

A death record is a record of a death. Otherwise they are often riddled with errors.

I will decline links to BURIAL UNKNOWNS. Please don't waste your time or mine. Ditto birth date calculations.

And if I decline something, seriously, let me know why it is right. If you chose instead to get nasty and ask what my source is in a not very polite manner, I'll tell you right now, it's the stone. I do quick research, but ultimately you are the one asking for something. It is your responsibility to be able to back it up.

Not everyone can afford pay sites.

And STOP merging cenotaphs into burial sites. A cenotaph is NOT a duplicate. Learn what a cenotaph is. It is not always obvious. Contact me first. Do not ask for a merge. Messes resulting from doing it wrong are a headache to deal with.

Within guidelines, yes! Always! Please state your exact relationship in your request.

Out of guidelines...tell me your relationship, and maybe. If you don't hear anything, the answer is NO.

I am NOT responsible for erroneous info or links added to those memorials which I transfer.

Please feel free to use my photos for your research! No need to ask. All I ask is that if it is going elsewhere on the web, just provide a photo credit stating my name as the photographer. This pertains to MY PHOTOS ONLY, not to other contributors photos.

Those adding memorials based on Vermont death certificates...under final disposition please makes sure it specifies "burial". If it says "vault", "storage", "entombment", you can not know for sure if that is the cemetery where the person ultimately ends up. Many cemeteries do not have any or adequate storage for the winter. There has been difficulty filling photo requests here because people are being listed in the wrong cemeteries based on the death certificates.
