Bio

I have been doing genealogy for over 40 years. I started adding cemetery work to my research about 20 years ago. My primary focus is Whipple, Beaman, Clement, Garland in NH and Massachusetts and Huckins, Bridges, and many of the Washington County early families in Maine.

This has been quite a journey of discovery. To me these are not just names in a database nor stones in a cemetery, it is a story, their story. It is the discovery that we do not invent ourselves, we are the continuum of the story. This is why I try to add a bio, connect relationship links and add photos where I can. Although I appreciate the time and effort for someone to walk through a cemetery and take and post photos of many stones, it is much more meaningful for me to try and find out who these people were so that they may be connected to their relatives and to their part in the story.

I have met some wonderful people through FindaGrave, helpful and great to work with. On occasion I have heard a comment that I am a "newbie". On the contrary I have been doing this for 40 years, researching and gathering bio information and families. I have bios and/or connections on most all the memorials I have created and am slowing adding info for those memorial where I took over management.. If you are looking for relatives or in geographic locations where I have entered memorials do not hesitate to ask as I may have info as I have several databases of memorials left to post.

I am happy to transfer under the guidelines or if there is a compelling reason. If you are related and I am not, I will transfer no matter how distant your relationship. The photos I post may not be copied without permission.

UPDATE: In keeping with the 2021 FindaGrave guidelines I will no longer be adding names of possible living relatives or identifying locations. As I come across my previously added memorials I will be deleting such info. In most cases, a search of Newspapers.com or a google name plus obit search can come up with the full obit for those wanting more detailed information. I also leave the name of newspaper and date of publication where I have it. I also do not add memorials for persons newly departed in the current year in keeping with the new guidelines. Actually I never have added memorials of newly departed unless close relatives out of respect. Also, I generally will not link to burial unknown unless you have a compelling reason, so please do not leave a link edit, rather send your request in the "other suggestions" section if you have a burial unknown. I have found that many burial unknowns can be found with a little research. If you are a relative and find something I have left in the bio section which you wish removed, please send an "other suggestion" and I will gladly remove.
