|Bio and Links|
I am a photo Volunteer here for the "Find A Grave" web site. |
My family and I are currently working on our own Family Genealogy and building a Family Tree of my ancestors who lived back in the New England states of northeastern America. My paternal surnames are Carter (Chartier), McCarthy, Pelkey (Pellitier), Kennerson, Lamoureux, Coulong, McGinley and Elliot; and my material surnames are Briggs, Burgess, Baker and Burditt, Haskins, Weir, Pitts and Washburn.
I first started this process back in the early 1980s before the Internet was available and instead of sitting behind my computer I made several trips back to the Vital Records offices in Montpelier and Burlington Vermont and to the family Genealogy Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Recently at the request of my niece, I have decided to pick back up my work and finish what was started. During this recent research process, I found not only free Vital Records online but also this "Find A Grave" web site that linked together Cemeteries and burial sites with headstone inscriptions and photos.
Finding the headstones and my ancestor's burial site information was important to me and finishing my research, but living in Northern California 3,000 miles away from any of these New England Cemeteries made it difficult for me to do myself so I've had to ask for "photo requests" for several headstone photos to be taken back in Vermont, New York, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
I was immediately humbled by the selfless acts of generosity of the photo Volunteers, so much so, that it inspired me to want to give back myself.
In return for the gracious gifts of the many other "Find A Grave" Volunteers who have filled (and are filling) my many photo requests, I too am happy to now help others who are also searching for their family, and I'm willing to make the trip out into the Cemeteries that are located here in the Solano County area of Northern California and take photos of headstones and document the inscriptions.
Once my Family Tree is completed, I'm planning on devoting much more time as a photo Volunteer here on this web site.

That would be ok if you want to.

Per F.a.G. name should be listed as on stone. Any other names should be in the bio. Since there is not a photo up, but all sources list the last name as Kerr , Kerr alone will be used. TY.

|Rebecca||Find A Grave Memorial# 79274938|
I'd first like to thank you for all of your contributions on Find A Grave. When I was looking at my gggg grandfather Nehemiah Haskins I noticed you accidentally transcribed a date wrong. The book text stated he came to Poultney VT in 1826 and you accidentally listed it as 1926 (he had passed away by 1926). Just wanted to let you know in case you wanted to fix it. Thanks again so much for all you do!

I will be happy to transfer Richard to you. I tried to enhance the photo so it is a little clearer. If you want another one taken just let me know. Also, if you have other family memorials that are set up by me, I can transfer them as well.

|Sherry Hodges||RE: Thank you|
Let me know if there are any more memorials you would like.
|John William & Cheryl (Colomb) De Ronde||RE: Charles Greeno b. 1881|
You are so right. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. When I posted it I must have had his son Earl on my mind. I'm not family. My wife is. Thanks again.
