I am a photo Volunteer here for the "Find A Grave" web site. |
I'm currently working on my 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 2,500 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.

THANK YOU for the transfer which came as a pleasant surprise.
Thank you for your positive approach in solving the duplication of memorials.
I wanted to thank you again-your kindness is so appreciated. I actually called All Soul's today and was told they would look into Felipe, Clara and Charlies' records. Plus waiting to hear from my grand Aunt (daughter/sister), but heard from you first!
Thanks for all your effort and for the photo's. I will go update my memorials next. Thanks again,

Thanks a bunch for the quick response to my photo request. So nice to see the full plot and her headstone. Regards, Phyllis
Hi sorry about the duplication. Are you willing to adopt the information that I have in mine and LINK to husband?
Thanks, I guess I was going off the newspaper obituary. Believe it or not, Charlie's 101 year old sister is still alive and very clear about family stuff, so I have a shout out to her to verify what she remembers.
Thanks for helping out.

Hi - thanks so much for the date of death on Nora Mollen. Judging by the photos of St. Vincent's cemetery there appears to be 2 or 3 thousand graves, but only 450 listed on Find A Grave. Is anyone working on listing them? I'm in Angels Camp and thought of driving over to photograph them, but don't want to re-invent the wheel. Regards, Phyllis

Thanks for looking-when I consulted my records I found out he was buried at a different cemetery. I have updated his memorial and I want to thank you for taking the time to look. I still need to check on his mother Clara, but will keep searching.
