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.

Daniel Burns 1867 - 1891
Hi BLC,

The Daniel Burns 1867 - 1891 & Daniel Patrick Burns 1890 you found this stone on "Oct-15-2008"... and said"...

"This stone is white, but was covered with dirt."

Our Mary Ann "Mannings" Burns is how we are connected. She was married to Daniel Burns.

We are about 45 minutes from Old Saint Joseph Cemetery and are going to go there to take pictures & maybe some cleaning of several stones and others in that Cemetery.

You state that this stone is in Section 2A do you have any more detail which would narrow it down?

Any thing that would make it easier would help.

Thanks a bunch.

Dan & Denise

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