Bio and Links
I'm a middle school English teacher that spends "spare" time conducting genealogical research. I have spent lots of time in the Forest Hill and Laurel Hill cemeteries, but recently focused most of my efforts at St. Bernard's and St. Joseph's.

Please feel free to use photos that I take for whatever purpose you choose. However, any and all photos must include proper source information in the citation. This allows other researchers to maintain the integrity of the research process.

I often have additional and/or higher quality images, and sometimes additional information, for many of the memorials. Please contact me if interested.

Please note that although I strive to take the best possible quality photos, I occasionally upload pictures that I plan to replace in the future.

I generally create memorials with the same spelling used on the marker, when one exists. Additional information, such as names of parents, also utilize information/spelling as seen on the primary sources.

Several gravestones at Laurel Hill no longer stand where they were first erected. Several factors, including erosion and vandalism, have led to these stones being placed in seemingly random locations. I try to document both where these stones are now, and where they should be.

Bourbeau Memorial New Bedford
I am from New Bedford originally and just saw a Facebook post of the Bourbeau Memorial. I see you maintain it. I believe we may be distantly related. My father was William (Bill) Bourbo. He was born in New Bedford in 1912. His grandfather was Alfred Bourbeau until he changed the family name to Bourbo, as he thought it sounded more " American". My dad always said was memorial was for a distant family member. My dad also was a WWII veteran. Please feel free to contact if you have more details or if I might be able to provide more for you.

St. Bernard's Cemetery
Thank you for the photos from St. Bernard's. Hopefully they were not too spread out since they are all from the same family line.

Ethier photos
Hi Bill,

Thank you for all the photos you have taken and uploaded. I am always happy when I think there is a chance that a record I am recording or a family I am researching might end up with one of your uploads.

I was wondering if you recall about what area the Ethier stone may be in. They were friends of my parents and I'd like to show my mother the stone in person the next time I am in the area.
