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, which must be within FAG guidelines. Do not leave a message here.

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 trasncribed and uploaded to 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,

Evergreen Cemetery, CT
My wife and I thank you for transferring the memorials for Mabel Wright and Alma Wright to me. They are my wife's relatives, but she doesn't do the genealogy thing - that is my job.

Morse Duplicate graves
Hi - I added some family member graves and then realized you had already added them, so I'm not sure if findagrave can merge them or?

They are Gardner Warren Morse and Rosalind (Rose) McCarten Morse

Thank you for the immediate transfer of Jonathan's memorial and those of his wife and children. I could not ask for more.

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.
