Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love exploring cemeteries and getting a sense of their history. I'm located on the shoreline of New Haven County in Connecticut.

Photo requests: Help me to help you! Include any cemetery contact and plot/location information on your photo requests.

SACs: Please do not ask me to link any memorials to a "Burial Unknown". This is a grave registration site, and genealogy is better pursued on other sites.

Previous projects: transcribed and uploaded records from the New Haven (CT) Jewish Cemetery Database into the following cemeteries on FAG:
Adas Israel, Beth Israel/Orchard St. Shul, Columbus Lodge/Temple Beth Shalom, Mt. Sinai Memorial Park, United Israel, Warshaver Relief/Ahavas Shalom/Young Israel, Warshaver Relief/Young Israel, Congregation B'nai Jacob, Congregation Mishkan Israel, B'nai Jacob Memorial Park, all in New Haven, CT. I've also transcribed and uploaded to all of the Jewish cemeteries in East Haven, CT.

Last project: Evergreen Cemetery, New Haven, CT, where my parents are buried. Added dates, name corrections, and plot information for the more than 6,000 records listed on FAG, completed in two months. Also added 40,000+ records to FAG from Evergreen's on-line database,

Current project: helping to fulfill photo requests and update plot information for Grove Street Cemetery, New Haven, CT.

Transfers: If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please submit a SAC with your relationship to the deceased, which must be within FAG guidelines. Do not leave a message here.

Carrie and Grace Heald
I was looking up the Hyde's in Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven and came across your entries. I wonder if you can help me with 2 photo requests in Oak Cliff. They are both Healds. I called the DPW to discover its private cemetery. Online I found old marker transcriptions from 1935 by Oxford Past that indicate they may be in section D (206-2). I was given the # 203-888-0781 to call by the local library, but have not heard back. Could you the these pictures? If there are more Heald family, please take their pictures. There are no other listings on Find A Grave for Heald's in this cemetery.

RE: Stephen and Abigail Ball, 45 Cypress Ave.
Thank you for your very helpful suggestions. Per your recommendation, I will submit a photo request. (I had already checked Grove Street Cemetery’s on-line database, but did not find any additional information about these particular graves.)

And, I agree with you completely about not making assumptions. I am hoping to find any evidence which will either support or refute the hypothesis that Stephen Ball and Abigail Ball buried at 45 Cypress Ave., Grove Street Cemetery, may be (or may not be) the parents of Francis Eliphalet Ball, born 1818. If their graves are next to each other, this may be a clue that they had had a close relationship, such as husband and wife (or brother and sister).

Thank you so much.

Stephen and Abigail Ball, 45 Cypress Ave.
Hello, I would very much appreciate it if you are able to provide photos of the graves of Stephen Ball (interred 6/29/1842) and Abigail Ball (interred 4/18/1839), both at Grove Street Cemetery. We have ancestors with the same (or very similar) names, who we believe were married and had at least a son, Francis Eliphalet Ball (our g-g-grandfather).

I see that both Stephen and Abigail are interred at plot "45 Cypress Ave." and that there may be only 23 graves at that plot, 10 of which graves are for persons named "Ball." It is unclear how proximate the graves of Stephen and Abigail are (and so whether the proximity might suggest that they were married.)

Any photos or information you may be able to provide would be much appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you very much.

Hi, this is my G G Uncle's grave, he was called Wilcock originally and was from Yorkshire, England before he emigrated to the US. Thank you for putting his burial record on this site, I have been searching for his death/burial for many years and was pleased to finally find it. If you could send a photo of the grave that would be appreciated it is in Evergreen Cemetery New Haven Connecticut Section association of single graves, plot 7255 grave 7, thank you in anticipation. A photo on this site would help tremendously. thank you for your hard work in reuniting me with my relative's grave. Kind regards Maria

You are welcome, Diane. I was out that way today and, luckily, the rain let up!

RE: Samuel and Lucille Ritvo
Oh, that would be nice. Thank you.
You did such a lovely job with the photographs -- I'd be happy to add the material I have.
Lucille, especially, I'd like to add to -- she was part of that generation of Yale spouses who were at least as able as their husbands but had to find a way to work around social constraints to make their contributions. She was lucky enough to be able to use her gifts to make an important and unique contribution to academia.

Find A Grave Memorial# 147394448
Mary Ann (Hurlburt) Pomeroy

Find A Grave Death date listed is Nov. 20, 1873 but there is no stone shown.

"400 Years of American Hulburds" death date is 6 Nov 1878

I was wondering if the source was from the stone or other records?

I recently tried getting Andrew A Amatrudo (103362540) transferred to me because he is a cousin. It's been almost a week now with no answers back. Could you transfer his account to me so I can freely update it and connect other family members to him? Thank you.

Thank you so much for the incredible work you have done. I have a birth date for Henrietta Clarke (Evergreen Cemetery)and other info as she was my aunt, my mother's half-sister.

Would you like that info or should I have her transferred to me?

Thanks for your help.
