I LOVE Find a Grave! I have received lots of help in researching my family tree and I just would like to PAY IT FORWARD. My friend who helps me, and I, used to do geo-caching but we like the grave hunting better!!! I especially like the challenge in finding hard to locate graves and will not give up until I find it, if it can indeed be found. I want to see EVERY grave on line. I am just doing my little part to help make that happen.
My volunteer photos can be used freely by anyone, anywhere, no credit necessary as I consider them in the public domain. I promote freely sharing information, as in crowd sharing makes us smarter!I love to find and photo graves to share with the family member making the pic request.
I generally do not create memorials but would gladly transfer any memorial if needed , you only have to ask. Later if I can no longer take pictures, I may like to start adding memorials.
If I make any mistakes, feel free to let me know in the most convenient way for you. I would love to correct any mistake as quickly as possible.
If I request a photo I would like to be able to use the photo anywhere, anytime, please do not claim my pic requests unless you agree that I can use the pic as I see fit. Just leave it for another volunteer who will 'give me' the pic, if you would like to retain the copyright please pass me by. However, I will be happy to attach your name to the picture, as the photographer - if you require it, where ever I re-use the picture. Thanks in Advance!
We can also do look ups for Obits and any other items, at no charge (ever for anything) on an 'as time allows basis'. Send me a separate email with a list for Obits: Name, Death Date, and Death Location - Worcester County Only.
If you see any of my pics or my memorials that are your relatives also, please drop me a line - I would love to get a chance to talk about our ancestors.
I have been working on my tree for 4 yrs. My direct lines: >Kane/Lynskey/Heagney/Rowbottom - Barker/Bessette/Prentiss/Ducharme.
My 3 grandchildren's direct lines: >1Cornelius/Richards/Soucy/Green/Smith/Bartlett >2 Green/Kudron/Kimbar/Willet >3 O'Rourke/Pomroy/Madigan/DelVecchio
Madigan/ Mt Calvary Adding photo of this headstone. I couldn't tell if any of the surrounding graves were of possible relatives (i.e., no other Madigans around it). If you can suggest possible names, I'll take a look next time I'm there.
A couple of years ago you uploaded a couple of photos of the reported area of burial to Phineas Bartlett's memorial, # 52358162 in Hope Cemetery, Worcester, Massachusetts.
It was reported to me today that he is buried in the same location as the rest of his family, Section 31, Lot #3144, which makes way more sense. The gentleman who made this discovery has a photo of the correct location, so could you please delete your earlier photos?
photo request Could you please post one your photos to another memorial, which would be the spouse that shares the stone? The photo you posted is on # 66381159, Frances Moran. I would like it to be also placed on her husband John Moran's memorial, # 66381163.
I figured you can copy it to your computer and then upload it to John's memorial. I wanted to give credit, the right thing to do. Thank you.
