To All Memorial Creators:
Direct information on creating memorials, reference https://support.findagrave.com/s/article/Creating-Memorials: I have a presumed burial location, should I add the memorial? NO, burial locations or dispositions SHOULD BE VERIFIED information.

My girlfriend and my mission is to fulfill the "No grave photo" with photos and to have the cemetery "100% photographed". This can be accomplished when the memorials are in their respected cemetery locations.

To Northfield Vermont Memorial Creators: PLEASE be aware that there are a Northfield Falls, Washington County and a Northfield, Washington County burial selection. I have found many DISPLACED memorials due to the wrong town selection. For those creating a memorial for the ELMWOOD Cemetery: if there is an obituary available, it may indicate that the body is in the Elmwood Vault. The Vault was used during the Winter months when the ground is too hard for burials. When Winter ended, the body was interred to one of ten Northfield Cemeteries or to neighboring towns such as Tunbridge and Waitsfield. DO NOT GUESS! Create your memorial as BURIAL UNKNOWN if you don't have absolute proof.

I only create memorials after photographing one or if I have absolute proof from a death certificate or an obituary.

If you are a photographer creating a memorial, please include as much information as possible, such as complete dates, spouses, children, etc. Also please include other family members from nearby gravestones. I don't understand why someone would create a memorial that lists two or more names, and not create a memorial for each person.

Many head stones are still difficult to read either due to a blurry photo, bad lighting or the photographer doesn't kneel in front of the subject. When creating a memorial, I will verify that there are no other duplicates in the current or other cemeteries. I will also verify information that I find on Ancestry.com. If possible, I will add parents and spouses. For date edits on other photos, I use a date calculator (www.timeanddate.com). These calculations are accurate for births after Sept. 14, 1752.

I been searching my Ancestry for a couple of years. I've run into some road blocks on my father's side. I'm looking for Hilfertys, O'Donnells, Lineys and McGettigans of Donegal Ireland and Philadelphia. On his mother's side, I searching for Travers, Whitely, Dean, Halisby, Clayville and Kelly. Please feel free to add obituaries and other life or death records. I was thrilled when I came across a marriage record for my great grand parents.
