If I've taken a photo of a grave, please ask for permission before republishing elsewhere, online or offline. If I maintain a memorial, and it's for one of your ancestors or relatives, I will almost certainly transfer management of the memorial to you, gladly, if it is not a nearer relative to either myself or my wife.
I'm the US GenWeb Project Volunteer Town Coordinator for Middleton & Beverly, in Essex County, Massachusetts. I'm glad if I can help you out with any searches in these towns.
Or feel free to drop me a line, if you are looking for sources in the areas I've researched, or you find we are cousins, and I'm missing you folks, or if maybe we can share sources or tree info.
Perception of any ambiguity should always be a cue to the necessity for further research. ... Or sending me a message. ... Or both!
