Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a photo Volunteer here for the "Find A Grave" web site.

My family and I are currently working on our own Family Genealogy and building a Family Tree of my ancestors who lived back in the New England states of northeastern America. My paternal surnames are Carter (Chartier), McCarthy, Pelkey (Pellitier), Kennerson, Lamoureux, Coulong, McGinley and Elliot; and my material surnames are Briggs, Burgess, Baker and Burditt, Haskins, Weir, Pitts and Washburn.

I first started this process back in the early 1980s before the Internet was available and instead of sitting behind my computer I made several trips back to the Vital Records offices in Montpelier and Burlington Vermont and to the family Genealogy Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Recently at the request of my niece, I have decided to pick back up my work and finish what was started. During this recent research process, I found not only free Vital Records online but also this "Find A Grave" web site that linked together Cemeteries and burial sites with headstone inscriptions and photos.

Finding the headstones and my ancestor's burial site information was important to me and finishing my research, but living in Northern California 3,000 miles away from any of these New England Cemeteries made it difficult for me to do myself so I've had to ask for "photo requests" for several headstone photos to be taken back in Vermont, New York, New Hampshire and Connecticut.

I was immediately humbled by the selfless acts of generosity of the photo Volunteers, so much so, that it inspired me to want to give back myself.

In return for the gracious gifts of the many other "Find A Grave" Volunteers who have filled (and are filling) my many photo requests, I too am happy to now help others who are also searching for their family, and I'm willing to make the trip out into the Cemeteries that are located here in the Solano County area of Northern California and take photos of headstones and document the inscriptions.

Once my Family Tree is completed, I'm planning on devoting much more time as a photo Volunteer here on this web site.

transferred Philip Keech
I have transferred Philip. My family line, Fish, married into the Keach/Keech family. I too live in California (southern) and travel back east often to photograph cemeteries looking for family members. I would love to see if our Keech lines intersect. Kathy

I have extracted information from his obituary & added it to his memorial page per Find A Grave guidelines - omitting names of living persons, etc

Best regards

Thank you for the transfers of my family members. Much appreciated and for the photo! Mary had no children of her own but did raise not only her husbands son but her sisters as well.
