Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am of Acadian (French from what is now Nova Scotia), Irish and Italian ancestry, and my husband is of French-Canadian and Eastern European Jewish ancestry.

Our Canadian ancestors came to New England in the late 19th and early 20th century, to work in the mill towns of Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

I LOVE the early New England gravestone art! But my main focus for genealogy is with our Canadian immigrant ancestors.

I love an excuse to go puttering around local cemeteries, taking photos. Hope I can continue to add listings and photos here for many years to come!

PHOTOS:

Many of my photos have GPS tags in the EXIF Data, and I've added that information to some of the memorials. But Find A Grave makes this very cumbersome to do, so I haven't added all of them. ALSO, some of the GPS tags are wrong, because of an intermittent problem with my camera that I'm trying to get the company to diagnose and fix. So, please, before sending an edit to add the GPS tags, look at the location to make sure it makes sense, and isn't located in some swamp a mile away!

PLEASE READ:

I hate having to post this, BUT:

If you want to send me corrections/additions for the memorials I manage, PLEASE use the Edit Tab on the memorial page. I won't make changes from messages left here.

I put a lot of work into my memorials - I don't just post the minimum FAG requires. Don't tell me that you'll send me your notes on a family and I can update my memorials from them. Send the SACs using the Edit Tab on the individual memorials, if you want me to make changes.

I will not post an obituary in its entirety, ever. It's a violation of copyright law, and also risks listing living persons.

And I will NOT link a memorial to an "Unknown Burial" memorial. Come back when you know where s/he is buried.

Requests for transfer will be judged on a case by case basis. For example, if you are trying to use Find A Grave as a genealogy site by adding all your "Burial Unknowns," I will not transfer to you. Although a wonderful genealogical resource, Find A Grave is intended as a burial registry and I won't encourage behavior that runs contrary to that.

Clovis Hisoire
My great-great-grandfather Clovis Hisoire's parents are Hubert and Rose Delima Hisoire. Their pictures hang here in my home. She was buried in the "Catholic Cemetery" in Somersville, NH, although I have not found the cemetery or site. Her husband is buried in St-Patrice-de-Beaurivage, PQ, Canada. I'd link the records if we had gravesites.

(508) 278-6592 Steve Marsh

If you would like further information pertaining to the holdings at St. Mary's, this is the number to reach the caretaker. His name is Steve Marsh and he is very knowledgeable in regards to the records at the cemetery.

Good Luck.

RE: Re: John Baptiste Blair
I have fixed the photo. I don't quite understand why it was flipped as the image on my ipad has it upright as well as the one I downloaded into my computer.

RE: Re: John Grenier photo request
I have spoken with the caretaker and have been present when he has gone through all the old card files and books. As for him having 100% of the records, I cannot say, but I have gotten information pertaining to other people who were buried earlier than 1900.

A few years back, a woman did record all the visible stones and did a fairly thorough matching to the files and the John Grenier you requested was not in that book either.

sorry.

RE: Memorial 117374386
Yes I am a recent "newby" as you say but I am not an asshole. Find A Grave is a complete joke to me because of headstone scabs just as you are, and obituary scabs who think they are doing a world service. In my research for my family information, there has been one governing factor - ACCURACY. You don't quite obviously know what that means.

Memorial 117374386
Johanne Rosine Auguste Berndt Watjen is my Great Aunt. My grandfather's older sister. If I had your e-mail address, I could send you pages from paid genealogy research from Uwe Porten in Germany that says my Great Aunt's name is as I say NOT as you have it recorded at Find A Grave. In this case, the headstone is not accurate information. I have paid for Berndt Genealogy Information back to the mid-1500's. I hate to see mis-information recorded on my mother's family. Please provide me your e-mail adddress and I will send you the information and source. Or you can just change the name to the correct information. I have been told you have been contacted by a distant cousin of mine and you refused to change the name for whatever reason. Hence the note you posted about her name. Wouldn't you with your strict requirements, want the correct information for your memorials? I await your response. You can reach me at billwagner@verizon.net

Mary,
I added your note to Mary's bio on her memorial but left Thrain as her surname after finding her parents memorials, created by a different person, showing H.
Pls see Find A Grave Memorial# 96291070.

Rich O'Keefe

I have been searching for Mary (144193204) for many years. She was the only one of my great grandfather's siblings that I could not find. Thank you.

RE: Earl S. Kenadek
I know what you mean about names. The Dube family, at least my line, really made figuring out who is who very difficult not only with their given names but with their totally-unrelated nicknames. LOL

RE: Earl S. Kenadek
Hi Mary,

Thank you. I have tried also to find a connection for Earl but haven't had any luck yet. But if I find anything that sheds some light on who he is related to, I will definitely let you know.

I have a few photos of people from the Vincent Dube family line if you would like copies. Vincent was the father of Noel "James" and was my great-great-grandfather.

Debbie
