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.

Emily L Angell Merritt Grave Question
Dear P.K.

My third great grandfather is Hezekiah Weeks (1813-1900) who married Minerva Angell (1820-1871). I am seeking a connection with Minerva to Emily L Angell Merritt whos grave you put on this great website. Minerva and Emily are both buried at Norwich Bridge Cemetery. Are they buried close to each other by chance? Are there any cemetery records to possibly link them as sisters? I also wanted to ask you where did you get the information that Emily's parents are Lewis and Lucy Angell? I would love to get that information collaborated. Are Lewis and Lucy Angell from NY or MA? All records I am finding for a Lewis and Lucy Angell are from NY. Have you run across any graves of a Lewis or Lucy Angell in MA? Any insight you may give would be very helpful to my research. Thank you for your time!

The memorial you sent the correction through (# 133022626) is the actual burial place (East St. Cemetery, Chicopee Falls). The monument in Dawes Cemetery, Cummington is the cenotaph (memorial # 132923997). I cropped out the part of the Cummington monument where it states he is buried Chicopee Falls and added it to the Chicopee Memorial. The cenotaph is linked via html to the actual but I forgot to link the actual to the cenotaph. I'll do that now. Thanks! Jim
