Bio and Links
Bio Photo Amateur photographer in Massachusetts who has always enjoyed wandering through cemeteries and taking photos. Discovery of Find A Grave now gives me an excuse to get out with my camera and take photos.

And yes, my profile image is indeed from an actual headstone in the Forefathers Burial Ground of Chelmsford, Massachusetts for Oliver Fletcher (d.1771) (Find A Grave Memorial# 18168422).

Regarding edits: Please use the edit tools available on each memorial to submit changes and/or new data to a memorial. Most of the information you can add directly, such as dates, and I only need to approve those changes. It also ensures that if you want stuff added to the Biography section that I am in the correct memorial (as the edit tool will send the request along with the link to the specific memorial). Thank you.

RE: Alexander Cassella #115440783
I appreciate your perspective but Find a Grave data is coming thru on Ancestry and many people are making all the connections in these sites to make those links -- some times information is Find a Grave that isn't on Ancestry and vice versa.

I will simply make references to the family memorial links in the bios and not "intentionally" create duplicates because I believe in the integrity of the information being captured. If the intention was not to create the family links - then Find A Grave shouldn't even off the feature!

RE: Alexander Cassella #115440783
Hello Patrick. I received a rejection for my request to add the parents for Alexander and I'm unclear on the response... "content submitted does not belong in this date field". Can you explain this better so I can correctly provide the information in the proper fields? My intention is to link the family member memorials and would hate to create duplicate records to achieve that intention.

I appreciate your help and support.

Sincere regards,
Brenda Gugino

RE: Alexander Cassella #115440783
Sure thing Patrick but I didn't see an action option in the edit section to request the memorial to be transferred to me. Since I couldn't see an option to transfer, I forwarded the parent links
Michel #183463064
Carmela Liboria # 183463083

Thank You,

Alexander Cassella #115440783
Hello Patrick. First of all, thank you for taking the photo's of headstones and posting to Find a Grave. You are doing a great service for those who seek to weave together the history of their families using all the different resources available.

Alexander is my great uncle and I have created memorials for his brother, parents (Italy) and others. I've only just found Alex as my great grandfather's brother and would like to connect his with the rest of the memorials I have for the family.

Can you grant me access to the memorial in question (115440783) or post the following parental links # 183463964 for Michel Casella and Carmela Liboria 183463083? I would be very grateful.

married Bernard Hunt at Immaculate Conception Church in Lowell, MA. Catherine's parents were Ellsworth E. Preston and Sarah J. Hickey
