I am originally from Woonsocket, RI and now live in Central MA. I became interested in my family genealogy in the late 1980's. The surnames I am currently seeking are Gagne, Lahousse, Blanchette, Desjardin/Desjardins, Roy, Cote, Dubois.
I practice some photography (just learning digital, I still shoot old school film photos) and have always appreciated the serenity of cemeteries. I always have a camera with me and if there are any requests for photos it isn't usually a problem for me to stop at a cemetery in my travels and attempt to find that certain someone to fill a request. Any stone photos I take are put up here for use by any researchers and family members. A note of thanks would be appreciated so that I know who is utilizing them but not necessary. I just enjoy being of service and helping others in their quest for their family history.
If I have created a memorial page for one of your ancestors please ask for a transfer by using the "Other Edit" option on that memorial page. I am more than happy to transfer your relatives to you. I do this to help people trace their ancestry not to keep them under my name. Unless they are my relations I am pretty liberal with the transfer policy.
Ancestry, respect for those that came before us and honoring them has always been a priority in my family. They laid the foundation for who we are today. Those that are remembered live on within us.
