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.

Previous projects: transcribed and uploaded records from the New Haven (CT) 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, United Israel, 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. I've also transcribed and uploaded to all of the Jewish cemeteries in East Haven, CT.

Last 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, evergreencem.org.

Current project: helping to fulfill photo requests and update plot information for Grove Street Cemetery, New Haven, CT.


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

Marga Wessel
Hello DWV,
I see you logged this grave. She is the mother of a long time homeless woman who passed away in a shed this week in Westport. (she had lived there many years, suffering from mental illness). I found that her father Paul Wessel passed in 1966, unmarried brother LUdwig in 2009. Do you know if they are all buried together. I want to make sure she is laid to rest with her family & will pass any and all info along.
Kind Regards,
Lisa

RE: Harold E Prisley
Hi Diane:

Yes, Mary Ann Moore (26 Jul 1931 - 11 Sep 2007) was Harold E Prisley's second wife. I don't have marriage date or any record of her children, if she had any.

Harold's first wife was Shirley Linsley (22 Dec 1927 - 28 Sep 2010), and Shirley's children by Harold were:
1. William P., b. 1948, m. Mary Anne ____, lived in North Haven CT, d. 10 Apr 1983
2. Richard
3. Diane

Harold and Shirley divorced, but she retained her married name and lived in Branford, CT. I haven't found her grave or an obit that would indicate where she was buried.

Thanks for what you do!
Fred

James P Macdowall
Good afternoon, I submitted changes for James P Macdowall and there are errors. It listed his name twice instead of his spouse. His spouse is Charlotte Miller Macdowall. I added his birth date today. I couldn't add his birthplace because when he was born Edinburgh was in Midlothian, Scotland which is not listed because it has been changed.

Thank you for caring for this family,

jane
