†††Noticed 3/23/2014 "Siblings" in "Family Links", another improvement, thanks FAG†††|
How do you do, I am a male baby boomer, born in SE Connecticut.
Lived the past 28yrs in Bristol County Massachusetts
Always enjoyed roaming cemeteries.
Have only been doing my family genealogy research diligently since Jan 2011.
Currently undertaking on my own the huge task of documenting in-laws cemetery & a couple nearby ones.
Willing to help in anyway I can, anyone needing assistance finding family cemetery info.
Use of my photos, you need only ask & add credit where credit is do.
Tip:How to add GPS (lat/lon): to memorials "without" a GPS device or GPS photo capabilities
*****Updated Apr 18, 2014********
I have now found that you can now obtain GPS coordinates from the latest version of https://www.google.com/maps/. It's pretty much the same as old version except you don't have to switch to the "Classic" version.
In satellite view place your cursor arrow over your found headstone/marker, right click, drop down menu appears with 3 options. Pick the bottom "What's here?" & up in the left hand corner of the map screen, below the search field, a drop down fields displays information with Lat/Long coordinates. Place cursor over highlighted coordinates & a flashing/pulsating dot appears at the requested headstone/marker location on the map. Click the lat/long link below the search field & the new Lat/Long(decimal format) appears in the search field, plus a new red marker with Lat/Long(dd/mm/ss) appear at the chosen spot. Now you can copy & paste the decimal lat/long from the search field into the appropriate [Edit Plot] tab for the requested FAG memorial.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the transcriptions you have been doing and for visiting my friend Morgan's memorial. I appreciate it. He left us too soon.

|Geneen||RE: Stanley William Whipple|
Thank you! Stanley's mother is my great-aunt. While I had heard of his death I appreciate your reaching out. What a blessing he stayed through one last Thanksgiving with the family. I need to get back to Gales Ferry Cemetery some time to clean some of the family stones and replace photos. Best wishes!

It's on one of the main routes that I travel once a week or so, and not all that far from home. So the only troubles were the briars surrounding the place :)
|Jamie Briggs||RE: Ida/Ernest Briggs|
That may well be a person I had listed as 'Franie' based on a record that was likely a typo ( http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/53315877/person/26111454747 )
I would like to use these photos on my tree there, if that is OK.
|Jamie Briggs||Ida/Ernest Briggs|
Thank you for your photo (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=133984513)!
|Christina-Marie Hedges||Melrose Family|
I was wondering if I could have the memorials of the following people transferred to me?
George Melrose 135824836
Ellen Wood Melrose 135824844
Murdock W. Melrose 135824857
Walter S. Melrose 135824849
Mabel G. Fedor 135824880
The Walter M Kane on the stone is Mabel's child with a Peter Kane
George and Ellen are my GG Grandparents. Their daughter Christina married Peter Bernard Carron and is my line. Thank you very much for the consideration!
|Shirley Gerkin||RE: Re:Josephine Gerstle Darling|
On a trip to Washington D.C., I went to the National Archives to see the Civil War pension records of two of Josephine Gerstle Darling's brothers. When Josephine's oldest brother John Joseph Gerstle, Jr. applied for a Civil War pension, he was asked to submit proof of age. The births of the 4 oldest Gerstle children in this family were never recorded in any government birth records or church baptisms, but he submitted 2 family bibles records, one in German and one in English. I was able to get a copy of a letter from a Justice of the Peace who had examined these bible records and submitted the information to the Bureau of Pensions listing all of the records that were listed in the bibles. They list Josephine's birth date as 24 Jul 1840. These records also gave me the name and dates of birth and death of another sister, who had died young, and that I had never heard of before, as well as a marriage date of the parents, so I was lucky to have found this letter. I wish I knew what had happened to these two family bibles, as they would be a great treasure to have.

Right beside this grave was a stone for Charles C Weeks. Stone appears identical not sure of relation. I took a picture if you're interested.
