Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 state your relationship when making transfer requests. 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.

Rev. George Benjamin Atwell, his son, George B. Atwell
Dear Jan Franco,
First, let me thank you for all the work you have done on this site. There are so many things I am finding our about my family tree through findagrave.

I was just looking at the Rev. George Benjamin Atwell
Record added: Apr 20, 2008
Find A Grave Memorial# 26158117
I am confused between the Rev. George Benjamin Atwell and his son, George B. Atwell. The photo at the top right says
George B. Atwell~Aged 85 years.
Yet the memorial says that he was 48 years and five months old. I am confused about this memorial and his son's George B. Atwell,

Eli Denslow, Memorial 20444578
I have been researching the "New Haven" Denslow family for a very long time. My 5th g-grandmother was Ruth Denslow, g-daughter of William Denslow, daughter of Charles Denslow. Eli would have been Ruth's cousin. I'm writing my second genealogy book, and would like to ask your permission to use any of your Denslow family photos in my book. I always attirbute photos to those who have taken them. It usually looks like, "Photograph taken (or provided) by John Doe #xxxxxxxx of findagrave.com). Thank you for your consideration.
