|Bio and Links|
If you are new to findagrave, I suggest you read "frequently asked questions" carefully before making entries or requests. |
Since I get a huge volume of requests, please make it easier for me to add biographical information, relationship links, or corrections by going to the page you want linked or corrected and click on "edit." Your info will be emailed directly to me and I can click on the link. If I get the email I will make changes, but generally I don't have time to email you. Please double check dates and info; if multiple items are misspelled or have typos, I am inclined to believe the other material may also be erroneous.
PLEASE NOTE THAT "TRANSFER REQUESTS SHOULD BE FOR DIRECT RELATIVES WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS" as per Findagrave policy- see FAQs. Please state your relationship in the request. You are able to add photos to any entry.
When the website started there was no option for linking relatives. I am happy to add desired links: please double check your numbers so errors don't make double work for both of us.
I am related to some of the people I have added; entries are also posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.
Please take digital photos of old gravestones in your area; some that exist today may crumble in a season or two, especially in areas with winter frost. In a way, your photo will preserve it. Perhaps it will be the only record of a particular gravestone. Please do not apply any substance to a gravestone to make it more legible; it damages the stone.
You may use my findagrave photos for your personal use, with attribution; anything to be published - please contact me for permission. Click on photo for larger format.
If you are requesting a photo in a large cemetery please take the time to get section and plot number from the cemetery office, if there is one. Your request has a better chance of being fulfilled that way. Most volunteer photographers work on the weekends when cemetery offices are not open.
Verify everything; transcriptions and even information "written in stone" may be inaccurate. A good example is when the date April 31 appears on a gravestone.
Most of the CT cemeteries have already been added to findagrave. When in doubt check under "New" and "Old" to see if you've missed the listing. Please HESITATE before creating a new Connecticut cemetery on findagrave. I'll be happy to research it for you to avoid duplication; so many alternate names and town name changes make it likely it is already listed in another place. The majority of CT cemeteries that existed in 1934 were surveyed on the Hale Index: www.cslib.org/halecol.htm. Although it contains errors and omissions it is still very helpful.
Another source of information is the Ct Gravestone Network: www.ctgravestones.com.
Your local library or historical society can also assist you. Ask for the person most familiar with the cemeteries or the history of the town.
For additional help visit the findagrave forums.

No one has been able to locate his grave site - do you have definite indications that he is buried here? And that there may not be a headstone?
|Kari Olson||RE: Upsons in Old North Burying Ground|

I sent in additional info. on this grave #19781182 in Center Street Cemetery in Wallingford and want to thank you, again, for all your hard work you've done with the cemeteries of Conn.
|Aaron John Turner||Josephine Senese Willard|
I recently acquired an old photo album that had belonged to the WILLARD family originally of Marinette county, Wisconsin. It contains pictures of Lloyd Andrew Willard (1905-1987) and his family. He was married to Josephine Senese (1915-1999). I saw that you left a memorial for her on Find a Grave. I am desperately trying to get in touch with someone in this family. Did Lloyd & Josephine have any children? I cannot find obituaries for either of them. Please contact me.
