Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt.

PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.

If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.

My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.

Sources for additional memorial information include:
Suggest A Correction, NEHGS,,, NARA, other on-line sources, personal library, obituaries, newspaper items, etc.

Chester Clark - Bridge St.
Thanks for the Corbin info on Chester & Nancy. I have researched and updated their memorials. Also, thanks so much again for the Seidell transfers, when you have a second please look at their memorials now, I went up to Florence recently and rephotographed all the Seidell headstones/monuments in Bridge and Spring Cemeteries, I even found a very worn inscription on the reverse of Sadie's headstone for Augustus & Sophia, certainly added long after their deaths but wonderful to see!

Augustus & Sophia Seidell
For the longest time I could not find them, despite searches all over the place (before Find A Grave) I searched Goshen and Middlefield in person looking for existing stones. I am going to rephotograph the whole family on the next bright sunny day. I can't express how happy these transfers make me, very much appreciated! Jim

Thank you so much for these transfers, they are very special to me, my step-dad and his siblings (11 of them!) I made the breakthrough on their paternal line 20 years ago and have done a lot of work with german parish registers tracing the lines further. I can't wait to add more of my research to their memorials. You made my day!! Jim

Thanks much for the edit and bringing the corbin discrepancy to my attention. I found her birth, marriage and Obit and they all list "C." so I changed it (again lol). I further developed the memorials so they now look much more complete. It is always so great to hear from you, and if by chance you find I manage any of your relations don't hesitate to let me know!

Just wanted you to know that your efforts may stay silent for a number of years and then someone like me finds a connection. Thanks for all your efforts; muck appreciated.

RE: Transfer W Chapman
As I do so much and as being a cousin of his, I do more genealogy, than he ever has time, as he has been having health issues. I knew his mother's grandparents as they used to live in Roslindale as I did at one time. I have done much more on the family tree, as he doesn't have the patience. He has only done 4 Find A Grave pages and you can see by the dates.
