I may be without internet (thanks phone co.!) until the beginning of May 2018 due to a move. I am using the PC at the library several days a week so please try and keep your edits to a minimum. I will return full time soon!
Greetings from Rutland County, Vermont!
Please read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs/Help).
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. It is not a good source for birth info, which is often wrong.
I will decline links to BURIAL UNKNOWNS. Please don't waste your time or mine.
And remember, when sending info, not everyone can afford to use pay genealogy sites.
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.
USE OF MY PHOTOS
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.
VERMONT DEATH CERTIFICATES
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.
