|Bio and Links|
If you are new to findagrave, I suggest you read "frequently asked questions" carefully before making entries or requests.|
Since I get a huge volume of requests, please make it easier for me to add biographical information, relationship links, or corrections by going to the page you want linked or corrected and click on "edit." Your info will be emailed directly to me and I can click on the link. If I get the email I will make changes, but generally I don't have time to email you. Please double check dates and info; if multiple items are misspelled or have typos, I am inclined to believe the other material may also be erroneous.
Please state your relationship when making transfer requests. You are able to add photos to any entry.
When the website started there was no option for linking relatives. I am happy to add desired links: please double check your numbers so errors don't make double work for both of us.
I am related to some of the people I have added; entries are also posted in the interest of genealogy and history, and the hope that someone will add my lost ancestors.
Please take digital photos of old gravestones in your area; some that exist today may crumble in a season or two, especially in areas with winter frost. In a way, your photo will preserve it. Perhaps it will be the only record of a particular gravestone. Please do not apply any substance to a gravestone to make it more legible; it damages the stone.
You may use my findagrave photos for your personal use, with attribution; anything to be published - please contact me for permission. Click on photo for larger format.
If you are requesting a photo in a large cemetery please take the time to get section and plot number from the cemetery office, if there is one. Your request has a better chance of being fulfilled that way. Most volunteer photographers work on the weekends when cemetery offices are not open.
Verify everything; transcriptions and even information "written in stone" may be inaccurate. A good example is when the date April 31 appears on a gravestone.
Most of the CT cemeteries have already been added to findagrave. When in doubt check under "New" and "Old" to see if you've missed the listing. Please HESITATE before creating a new Connecticut cemetery on findagrave. I'll be happy to research it for you to avoid duplication; so many alternate names and town name changes make it likely it is already listed in another place. The majority of CT cemeteries that existed in 1934 were surveyed on the Hale Index: www.cslib.org/halecol.htm. Although it contains errors and omissions it is still very helpful.
Another source of information is the Ct Gravestone Network: www.ctgravestones.com.
Your local library or historical society can also assist you. Ask for the person most familiar with the cemeteries or the history of the town.
For additional help visit the findagrave forums.

|Nashville Rambler||RE: Levi Curtiss|
Agreed on Abigail, wife #1; Levi married Abigail Ufford as wife #2. I haven't found a record anywhere (yet) for a son Levi Curtiss who died young. That's my best guess for Levi buried next to her. Her husband outlived her by 40 years. It might make sense she's buried with a child died closer to when she did. Maybe she even died in childbirth? I'm still looking.
|Nashville Rambler||Levi Curtiss|
I have my own picture. I guess I could add that, too. I'm still working out who the other stone belongs to. It does look older though, doesn't it?
|Susan Wydra||RE: State Street Cemetery|
OH good I should have known. I spoke with the
attorney and he said that the main part they
are going for is where the plots are..who is
buried where and any maps that they be out there.
Apparently someone took everything from this
cemetery and kept it or lost it. I found
some interesting families that are still living
on State Street. Good place to start.
|Anne Shurtleff Stevens||Long time!|
since I saw your name. Working on a new family branch in Connecticut and wanted to thank you for all your work.
|Susan Wydra||State Street Cemetery|
Regarding New Haven Register's article about
the above mentioned cemetery...they are looking
or hoping to find family members of this
financially abandoned cemetery in disrepair.
The article appeared 5/18/17 if you would
like to read it. The attorney who is trying to
help this dire situation is Daniel Ioime of
Hamden CT.. 203-287-9377.
I thought with the amount of time you spent there
and magnitude of photos and histories seen you
might be able to give him a head's up on a person
that had a loved one buried there.
Thanks Jan..your work is so appreciated.

Would you please grant my family and I permission to use your photo of this cemetery. Full credit would be given to you along with your Findagrave Contributor # 46625834. My 9th Great-Uncle Stephen Gifford and his wife Hannah are buried in this cemetery. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to this wonderful site. God Bless.

|MPLehmann||Ashbel Moses d. 1837|
Is it for certain that Ashbel Moses is buried in East Hartland Cemetery and a stone wasn't placed in memory of him? I only ask because he was originally buried on the Philips's Farm in Barkhamsted which is now under Lake McDonough. He would have been buried about 100 yrs by the time the formation of the lake occurred.
|Gwen Riggs||RE: Transfer of Albert Porter Bradstreet|
Thank you so much Jan!
|Gwen Riggs||Transfer of Albert Porter Bradstreet|
Thank you for all you do for so many.
Alber Porter Bradstreet is #23197699 at Hillside Cemetery in Thomaston, CT
He is my grandmother Edith Amanada Thomas m. Ulric Brower Mather's uncle. He was born in our homestead at 237 Main St Thomaston, CT. He and his wife had no children but he contributed greatly to the community and became a judge. I would like to take care of his site if possible.
This homestead is now the Seth Thomas-Bradstreet Home Museum in Thomaston, CT.
