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, do not leave a message here.

Thanks for writing about the duplicate memorial for him.... I contacted the volunteer, so she can look at his information before I delete it.
Also... I have not yet heard back from FindaGrave concerning the defunct cemetery (Mapledale ?)
Take Care & Blessings to You and Yours,

Hi Diane
I'm a bit puzzled about your request to move the Millers from Mapledale to Evergreen. When I clicked on the link that you gave me for Evergreen Cemetery, I found the Millers listed, but there was also a map of Mapledale cemetery. Is Mapledale just a part of Evergreen Cemetery? It certainly existed on 18 Dec 1934 when George Donahue went into the cemetery to record all the gravestones for the The Charles R. Hale Collection of Connecticut Cemetery Inscriptions. [My source for adding them to the cemetery in the first place]

Thanks for getting back to me.... I wrote them, I don't know how long it will take for them to get back to me/us.... I am hoping they can do a mass transfer as I have a few hundred. I also asked them to contact both of us with the results and place "defunt" or link to Evergreen through Mapledale if this is the case.
I'll let you know when they write back....

Thank you for writing concerning this cemetery, I thought something was "fishy" ... I googled it, and it looked like a small forest area.... do you know why FindaGrave has not made this defunct?
have you contacted them by any chance? If not, i might write them and ask them to do a mass transfer..... since you have made me aware of this, I will make note of it and you don't need to send corrections for all the memorials I made there ;)
Joyous Easter Blessings to You & Yours,
L Evans

RE: Belzer family
First of all, thanks for the tip on the New Haven cemetery registry - I had no idea that existed and I found it very useful. I decided the only way to know for sure way to find someone to look at the actual stone, so I found someone on craigslist who lived in the area and was willing to go over and take a few pictures for me for $10. (I uploaded them both to findagrave of course). The transcription is correct, the stone does say halevi on it, which leaves me with a bit of a puzzle. It could be another person who has the same first, last, and father's name and lived in the area at the same time, or it could be a mistake by someone else. I'll have to do some more digging.

thank you

RE: Moses and Nettie Weiner

Thanks. We may actually drive up there over the summer and will stop by of we do; my husband hasn't visited the grave in years. But if that doesn't work out, I definitely will put in a photo request. I like the new linkages on Find A Grave and it has pushed me to connect more family. I've had a lot of success on my family, but hubby's side is harder!
