I am relatively new to FAG - started in November 2014. Long before that my husband and I always found cemeteries to be fascinating places, full of history and stories to tell in their own way with people to be honored and cherished. I am mostly interested in southern New Jersey (Cumberland and Salem Counties), western New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. My other desire is to honor the small forgotten family plots and cemeteries that usually are in the middle of someone's field or woods (like the one that my brother-in-law cares for in Maine). I also have started to do stone by stone accounts and adding people in cemeteries in Mercer County NJ starting with the smaller ones.

My two pet peeves:

1) Burial unknown entries for people that are probably in a cemetery but the contributor won't do the work to find them and correct it.

2) Duplicates!!! Especially by the same person. Please periodically check your entries for duplicates. As for the duplicates from two or more people, it is a difficult job to eliminate them so double check before entering people and check after also.
