Bio

Hello! I am more than happy to transfer memorials falling within generational site guidelines. I will also consider special circumstances for transfer, but I’ve been receiving far too many demands for colonial memorials. My primary focus is photographing and adding basic memorials. While I love genealogy, I am not a genealogist, but I do love a good scavenger hunt. If you are looking for cemetery photos in my general area, don’t hesitate to ask! I’ve been photographing cemeteries since the early 1990s, and I was delighted to discover find a grave a few years ago. I am a Halloween baby, born October 31st, so I am not afraid to creep around old cemeteries searching for your ancestors! I am also interested in topics relating to the Salem witch hysteria, and I have many accused in my own, my wife’s, and my daughter-in-law’s lineage (10 found so far!). I live in central New Hampshire, and often travel through Vermont and Maine too. I am a descendant of the Colcord branch who left New Hampshire for Maine around the turn of the 19th century, and I am related to the old sea captains. I would love to know about any Colcord graves you might come across. I am also looking for other branches of my family including Berry, French, and Lanpher of mid-coast Maine. Simons of Westchester County, New York and western Connecticut, McClintock and Robertson of Pennsylvania. Ockert and Lange descendants of the Saxony region of Germany, Vermont, or Massachusetts. Carpenter of northwestern Vermont or southeastern Massachusetts. Lewis of Nova Scotia or southeastern Massachusetts. Comeau of Nova Scotia. Naylor of southeastern Massachusetts via England, and Riley of Eastern upstate New York, or southeastern Massachusetts, northern Rhode Island.
Thanks!
