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.

Memorial# 155612766
Hi, the only Chamberland girl born the François and Marie-Thérèse Fonteneau in or around 1809 is Josephte Chamberland, June 1st, 1809 in L'Acadie. I have no idea where the "Pilo" comes from in her marriage record with Antoine Chartier. I can send file.

Helen Seavers Kelleher
Would you mind removing the "Kelleher" gravestone photo from Helen's memorial (#74640308). I have been informed that she is not buried at that location with, but in the "Seavers" crypts.
Thank you for all your work with Find A Grave.

Family of Lewis Antoine Carter
I have found this information in doing research for my aunt Frances Veronica (Manney) Jaillet. It may be of interest in your family research. Edward L. Manney (Memorial # 125510535) is Frances' half-brother. Edward is also a grandson of Lewis Antoine Carter/Chartier and Fanny Nesbitt. Clara Carter(Edward's mother) was their daughter, born September 1893, probably in Chittendon, VT. Edward's father's name was Ervin Alfred Manney b Nov 9, 1891 Middlebury, VT d Sep 21, 1987 Orlando, FL. Memorial # 129496143

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

Best regards

John Alfred Hill wrong info
I found out how to make the changes. I am grateful that you entered this information on my Grandfather but don't want others after I am gone to look in the wrong place for his birth like I did since 1980's
Thanks for your dedication to this site. We appreciate it.
