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 to the dearly departed. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. I've been burned too many times by people requesting out-of-guidelines transfers and then never adding so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.

I WILL NOT link to just "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.

Deanna Beckmann
Good Day, I have been searching for family for just a short time & I have stumble across that you added one for Beckmann, the grave memorial # is 40565742 you added the record back in August of 2009. I was wondering if you saw any other Beckmann's in the same Cemetery? I have a Aunt that is buried there I think, her name would is Ruth Virginia Beckmann (maybe spelt like Beckman)her Birth 9 Feb 1923 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Death 2 Nov 1929 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. I was in hopes that if you live close that maybe you could take a look for me. I am from Kansas that is why I am asking you.

Thank you for your time

Hello, PK!
Tell me a little about how you decided she was in Northampton and not buried in California, if you would. I have found a great-great-grandson out there who says he paid for a stone a few years ago!

How did oyu know Torkshire England for Benjamin NOrth

Your work on this site has been so invaluable to me. I have also been putting in graves at the bridge Street Cemetery for some of my family and am so thankful that you were able to capture inscriptions that are no longer legible.

I have a question on this site:

How did oyu know he was from "Idle, West Yorkshire, England"

He is my great great great great grandfather. I have been trying to trace him before he moved to America and your entry is my only link to this past.

Thank you so much for your help with this and also thank you for the countless numbers of sites you have captured and documented - your work has been so incredibly helpful and is so valuable to preserving our history.

The above name is my great-grandfather and I would like to have name transferred to me. As another person already has maintained Lucy Ermina Jones, I think I may have a relative I know nothing about ! Thanks so much.
Best wishes,

RE: Duplicate stone for John Church
P.K., Thanks for your note about the possiby duplicate memorials for John Church. I saw the one that 'the moo' posted, but if you look at the photos, the stones are quite different. One has a shorter arch and the other is a fair bit taller. I'm mapping that cemetery for the historical commission. This is one of the few stones that has a 'back side' with different information than the front side. (43160658, 137554333) Tricky to read them sometimes. ;)
