I enjoy researching the family tree. I have helped many others find their relatives.
I think Find a Grave is a great way to see tangible evidence of ones family from previous generations.
I am a member of the Denison, Geer, Palmer, Miner and Stanton family Associations. I have worked in several Eastern Connecticut Museums.Including Maritime Museums.
I am a member of many Historical as well as Genealogical society's. Most of my research is in Eastern Ct., Rhode Island, Vermont and Eastern Mass.
Some family interests include Eccleston, Wheeler, Culver, Burtch, Wilcox and Hillery, Lewis and Bennett, Gallup, Geer, Stanton and Noyes.
ESPECIALLY. the female lines.
Born, raised and remain in New England. Less than 30 miles from most of my ancestors from the 1600's.
I wish that it would REMAIN a place to have a virtual cemetery, A place to memorialize our relatives. Like a real cemetery.
That people would respect the final resting place of those who have past. Where children and grandchildren can learn about their ancestors.
Its great for those who cant travel to see their loved ones.
It wasn't meant to be just another genealogy site.
I would like to thank all those who take photos of gravestone's. Some stones are in bad condition and this is one way to help save them for future generations. You are the greatest. If you have a better picture than the one posted..please feel free to add it. Please respect copyright laws.
Census records are the most readily available genealogical resource we have. Unfortunately, you cant believe everything you read. Just because its on the questionnaire doesn't necessarily mean its true. Until the 1940 census, no indication was made as to the identity of the informant. It could have been your ancestor or a spouse or a neighbor or some kid that happens to be standing in the yard when the enumerator comes by. In other words, since we have no idea who provided the information, it is impossible to determine its validity. Use this resource to provide clues to other information from more reliable records. PS there are lots of mistakes on those also.
It s spelled wrong. Just because a name is spelled differently on the census than on another document doesnt mean wrong. When it comes to genealogical records, spelling counts for very little.
Please submit proof for correction requests. Lets keep the information as accurate as possible.
I try to adopt some grave stones who have little if any information . Then try and find as much as I can in respect for them. Everyone has a story. That's their legacy.
