Bio and Links
I am retired and loving it! Originally from S.TX, but have lived in Nev, Idaho, Montana, Ca., and for the last 23 years ,in SE Connecticut.I have a BA in History and Sociology, so worked in the casino industry for nearly 40 years.My love has always been History and I really love doing research . My ancestors were "all American"...Irish- Roumanian Jewish on my Mom's side, and Irish- Hispanic- Native American on Dad's side.
When I go to photograph a request, I will usually take more photos of the cemetery, if seemingly related graves haven't already been posted. Just ask for the management to be transferred!

Spellman stones
Hi Diane
Another Find A Grave volunteer found the grave markers for me- after some relentless searches so except for the great grandparents in old St Micheal's, I have those that were buried in New St. Michaels in Pawcatuck. Thanks for offering to look.

RE: The Bell Family
Hi Diane- Just an update-Your information and photos of the Bell's Family ii Westerly lead me to distant family related to the Bell's in Australia! Thanks again. They have graciously shared their tree on Ancestry with me and in return I have given them information and names they were missing and access to my tree. Thanks again!

Just saw the message that you left me a short while ago. I like the idea of working together, but it will probably have to happen after Labor Day. I will be unavailable from the middle of July until then. Use my email to contact me if you like. Jane

I really do appreciate you taking the time to take the pictures of the headstones. This means a lot to me and helps so much.
