Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love exploring cemeteries and getting a sense of their history. I'm located on the shoreline of New Haven County in Connecticut.

Photo requests: Help me to help you! Include any cemetery contact and plot/location information on your photo requests.

SACs: Please do not ask me to link any memorials to a "Burial Unknown". This is a grave registration site, and genealogy is better pursued on other sites.

Transfers: If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please submit a SAC with your relationship to the deceased. Do not leave a message here.

Previous projects: transcribed and uploaded records from the New Haven Jewish Cemetery Database into the following cemeteries on FAG:
Adas Israel, Beth Israel/Orchard St. Shul, Columbus Lodge/Temple Beth Shalom, Mt. Sinai Memorial Park, Warshaver Relief/Ahavas Shalom/Young Israel, Warshaver Relief/Young Israel, Congregation B'nai Jacob, Congregation Mishkan Israel, B'nai Jacob Memorial Park, all in New Haven, CT. Also all of the Jewish cemeteries in East Haven, CT.

Current project: Evergreen Cemetery, New Haven, CT, where my parents are buried. Added dates, name corrections, and plot information for the more than 6,000 records listed on FAG, completed in two months. Also added 40,000+ records to FAG from Evergreen's on-line database,

thank you, DWV
you posted information about my grandfather's brother, David Templeton Boyd, who was murdered on Christmas Day, 1889. Most of the family is in Alderbrook Cemetery in Guilford.
I was delighted to know where he is buried.
Thank you for your work.

RE: Indepentent Adas Israel/Adas Israel Cemeteries
Thank you for your response, Diane. Yes, I do believe they are both the same cemetery, and it appears that the old name is no longer being used.

Wrong cemetery?
I received word from you that Adam and Ann Martin are not buried in Mapledale but Evergreen. According to Findagrave, Mapledale is listed as a historic cemetery, and the map coordinates on Findagrave cemetery information matches A/A Martin's location. If you would like to contact the editor's at Findagrave and suggest that all entries in Mapledale be moved to Evergreen you can do that. But my information from the time of his and her death state they are buried in Mapledale Cemetery.

RE: Elizabeth Nugent
That sounds like a daunting task (fixing cemetery). Thanks for your reply.

Thank you so much for tackling this project as it is so beneficial for those of us who no longer live in Connecticut, but have our roots there.

thanks for writing back... I will if I ever run into anything in the future, but it seems you have covered the whole cemetery, I doubt I will be there any time soon or on a regular basis. I was taking my time there, trying to account for families and veteran's, linking where and when ever possible....... do you have access to Hale Transcripts or Ancestry? As birth dates and relationships are there.
