Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found our daughter's memorial here, Kristi CHAGNON, and was surprised, and grateful, that someone took the time to do that. If you'd like to stop by and visit with Kristi, just use this link. She is a wonderful soul. I'm certain she is still here with us.

Now I find strolls through quiet cemeteries to be relaxing -- while hopefully being helpful to someone researching their family. I was never awkward wandering cemeteries, but now I do it with more purpose. It does bring me to a place of peace. It has also taught me a lot of those who have been here ahead of us. I try to keep my camera handy and research names that seem to have no connections so their memorials might be connected here.

My father was from Canada and my mom from Salem, Mass. (She enjoyed sharing that she went sledding on Gallow's Hill.) Her family was from Ireland. I have lived in New England nearly all of my life and have found neighbors to be friends that I'm able to visit -- even after moving to another community.

I enjoy helping folks to connect with their past. I am thrilled when I get a note of "I wondered where he/she was" or "I didn't know about him/her." So please share with me any thoughts you have.

Also, it is much easier making corrections if you use the appropriate tab on a memorial. I would appreciate if you can do that.

Be safe.

RE: Birth and death places
How do you print those records? Those fields do not print on the spreadsheets created in "Contributor Tools".

RE: memorial 55421409
Thank you for creating these memorials and managing them. If you want to transfer them to me, that would be fine, however, not necessary if you wanted to keep them yourself. Ralph is my uncle. His sister Louise mentioned in the obit is (was) my mother.

Thanks again,

RE: Kristi Chagnon
You are more than welcome.... I'm not sure why or how I stumbled across her memorial .... but when I read her story I just had to put down what I thought at that moment. :-)

RE: memorial 55421409
Hope you are feeling better! Thanks for making the changes. Yes, it is fine to have just the first names. Of the ones you listed, only one is actually still living anyway. I see you added a memorial for Ralph's wife. I have her dates and can send them to you via the edit button. Also, for his father's date of birth, he was born in 1885 and Ada, his mother, was born in 1888.

Thanks again, have a great day!

RE: Charles Edmunds / Floral Park
I don't know the exact area but I have an idea of the section I was working on at that time. I could try to show you. Let me know the next time you will be in NH. Did you check with Larry Berkson?

memorial 55421409
Hello there,
Back on May 30 I sent a SAC for the above memorial asking if you would please remove the information on my uncle's memorial regarding survivors that are still living per FaGs guidelines. So far you have not made the change and I wondered if maybe you didn't get the request or if the might be some other reason. Thanks for checking on this and let me know if you have any questions.
