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 (Quebec Province) 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 welcome any excuse to go puttering around local cemeteries, taking photos, and 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. 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, 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.

If you want a specific field changed (names, dates, relationships, etc.), use the field edits on the edit tab, not the OTHER choice. I won't make changes to fields from an emailed edit. Find A Grave has made it very easy to make field edits - let's use that system.

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 that family member is actually 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.

He is not really related to me but his son Henry married my great grandmothers sister and there grand daughter lives in Pennsylvania and I am looking for william's Family stone for her, her name is Annie Dutton and I can not find it. we know she is buried there but the cemetery has no record of where. I thought it may be near William but no luck.

Jankowiak Loc
S/Sgt Francis T Bonoyer
Dear Mary,

my name is Loc Jankowiak and I live in Southern France in the little town of Pertuis, liberate by the American heroes of the 45th Infantry Division. I'm an amator historian and I search everything on the liberation of Southern France in 1944 by American troops. I'm looking for the pictures to see the faces of our liberator and I would like to know if it will be possible to use the picture of S/Sgt Francis T Bonoyer( who was killed in action in August 1944 for a publication or something else.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
