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.

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.

John Alfred Hill wrong info
Died in 1956 Mount Calvary Cemetery Lebanon NH
He was my grandfather. My mother's father. Everything says he was born in Australia but he wasn't. If you look at the naturalization court documents you will see that he had to denounce Queen Victoria not that he was born in Victoria.
Also the Naturalization index card states I quote
"Country of birth or allegiances" His allegiance to Queen Victoria. I found his birth records in Quebec Canada where he said he was born. I can email you the documentation. Please take Australia off this site. I know his death certificate says that but they say death records are generally incorrect.

RE: Thank YOu
I don't see a cemetery number, but it can be looked up under cemetery look-up. San Jose Burial Park, 8235 Mission Road, San Antonio, Bexar County, TX 78214 210-923-0272. I see that there are three other requests currently pending at that cemetery, all of which are claimed by "Bill and Denise". I see them all the time on the computer taking photos at a number of cemeteries in this area. They are very good and quick.

William Wesley Broom
I claimed Mr. Williams for a photo, but when I looked at it I didn't believe Sunset was open in 1934. A check of the death certificate indicated he was at San Jose Burial Park. I called San Jose and they indicated Mr Broom is in Section 1, Block 7, Lot 28, Space 48. I don't work San Jose, but I'm sure someone on that side of town will. If you will relist this with him at San Jose, I'm sure a volunteer that works that area will pick it right up. San Jose Burial Park phone number is 210-923-0272.

Please check if my duplicate is still there before you delete yours. Sometimes in the rush of things I make mistakes, and I would rather there be two for a short time than none at all.

Orgelman / Pinney
Good morning.
I recently added photos to North Burial and came across your memorial for the Pinneys. I have added the North Burial, Bristol RI gravestone for the Orgelmans to the Pinneys. One of these must be a centotaph. Could be the Bristol, RI grave as it looks like all the Orgelman children have been listed on the gravestone.

Jon Sayuk - obituary
Thank you for his obituary. Even though obituaries are available publicly, I don't like to post obituaries that reference the living. Please contact me via email, I would like to ask you a question. Thanks, Dave B

Hello, I just wanted to say thank you very much for fulfilling the photo request for the Nodsons. I greatly appreciate it! Would it be okay for me to use their headstone photos on my private family tree?
Thanks again,

Alice Harriman
there was a robert harriman listed in an index of cumming ga deaths just as she was
each line was followed by louleo harriman

Alice; 102; Cumming GA; Forsyth CN; 1998-7-12; louleo HARRIMAN
HARRIMAN, Robert ... Robert; 73; Cumming GA; Forsyth CN; 1999-2-21

but as you stated there were no other Harriman's buried in the Sawnee View Gardens and Masoleums I photo graphed each grave with a marker and posted it here on find a grave. Just a thought you might call the cemetery as there are many graves there with no id. It is a vast perpetual care cemetery and was not previously recorded that I know of. I am transferring Alice to your care..
Harriman is not a local sir name and there were none listed in our phone book but with cell phones it's sort of unless to look up a name hoping for a home phone !
I hope you find something there that will help you in the hunt..... Bren
