|Bio and Links|
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!
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!
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.

Hello, I was just looking at the above memorial for Mary French. Do you know anything about her siblings or her parents, Wm. and Nancy? I'm trying to find a Mosses F. French b. circa 1826 and Wm and Nancy were having children during that time. thank you.
I just sent a long description. My guess is that most any records in the MA area with Pechulis are related in some way or another.

I will - thanks.

tell me about it! At least two of the Pechulis are lost for now - no doubt for the same reason.

I feel bad that I've sent so many corrections but you have so many memorials that I keep running into. I did know about the SSDI not giving the accurate place of death.
