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,

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.

Thank you for clarifying that, I wanted to be sure it wasn't something I wrote that you thought was an opinion. I definitely understand leaving out the parts that you did, that's why the statement was in quotation marks because it was quoting the newspaper article - those old time newspapers could certainly lean towards the dramatic :)

Thank you for giving me credit for his obituary, I wasn't expecting any. I just wanted to give you more info on his death since it was so far from his burial. I would like to clarify something, you remarked that "opinions were removed", you are talking about remarks made from the newspaper accounting, not something considered my opinion aren't you? Thanks again.

RE: Frank Richards
NO thank you. Most are very distant 1st or 2nd cousins many times removed. Even a few mistakes like Theodore J. I really appreciate your creating all these memorials. Thank you so much.

Hi there! I just got notice of this memorial at Find A Grave, and I was curious as to where you got the information for this grave. Is there a stone? I've been searching for my Grandfather's body for years -- he left his body to Yale for research, and no one can tell me what became of his body when they were done: Not anyone at Yale, Hartford PD/Morgue/M.E.'s office (He died in Hartford), or in New Haven. I'd love to know more! Thank You!!
