Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching my family, all 4 sides - names I am working on are Picariello; Ragosta; Kozar; Briggs; Permatteo/Piermatteo and all the branches from these names.

I am originally from and grew up in Needham, MA and now live in Bellingham, MA for the past 44 years. I try to add Bellingham and Needham resident's memorial when I can.

Along my searches, if I come across someone deceased, I sometimes add the notice to this site. If you wish I didn't, please let me know and I will delete it. But, remember, if someone is producing a family tree, these entries are very useful and the listed people will never be forgotten.

Loyd Metz 178780609
We have combined the two memorials placed for Loyd Metz. If you would like to post your "Flowers" on the new memorial, it is at 178657781. The other with your previous post will be gone in a few days.

Sorry for your inconvenience. Findagrave only allows one memorial and the first was placed just days before the one with the links, photos, flowers and bio. Now the second has all that except the flowers that were placed.

Thank you!

Thank you so much for creating this memorial for my grandfather. Would it be possible for you to transfer ownership of his memorial?

I sent a suggestion from the memorial that you have Mr. Johnson at the wrong cemetery. I also posted a picture of the SC cemetery so you could see that it has been inactive for years. Please change the burial to Branchville Cemetery, Sussex County, New Jersey. thanks, Wimsang

William Briggs, Sr.
I wanted to thank you for posting your information and for the work you do. This is my 8th great-grandfather, and I feel complete now that I've finally found the "senior!" There are 6 "William" names in the great-grandfather tree - the others have William as a second name. Very confusing! I am very grateful to whoever posted his parents and date of death. I was roadblocked until getting that info. My father is 92, the son of Lawrence William (L.W.) Briggs, and the LAST of 5 siblings left. He had 3 brothers/my 3 uncles: Harold Anthony, Lawrence Ogden, and George Weldon Briggs. All 4 brothers and their only brother-in-law served simultaneously in WWII.My grandmother was tough! (German roots!) I am very proud of our family name and its impeccable record(s). Contact me if you need any info as I see you are searching all 4 family names. I am doing the same with our family tree. We have LONGEVITY in our blood and I see it comes from the Briggs side! My parents just celebrated their 70th anniversary. My grandfather died at 90. Another uncle died at 87 and only because he slipped on set concrete and died instantly. Another uncle just passed in March 2017 at ALMOST 96 years old. He would've been that on this 4th of July! Again, thank you for your dedication and work. Feel free to contact me! God bless!

Thank you
Thank you for the transfer of Frances DiGuglielmo. I truly appreciate it. I have added a lot to her memorial. Thank you for making it for her. She was the last of the DiBiases' in that large family.

Have a great night!
