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.

Photo Request
Hello DWV
My name is Donna Earl.
I have been trying to find how to request a photo in St. Lawrence Cemetry, West Haven. Ct. with no success. I've joined Find A Grave and have asked how to request,again no success.They don't make it clear on how to request.
I'm asking for a photo for Frank Andrew Caruso
St. Edwards Ave. T-42 1/2. (1922-1946),
Cesare DeMartino is in the same T-
Thereas DeMartino is also there and next to
Frank. Frank is my husband's father, Cesare and
Theresa were my husband's, mother's parents.
Also, Evergreen Cemetry, my parents
Harry Hadley Schyde (1900-1987) The year of his death was 1987, not 1988. His birth date was 28 July he would have been 87 in July, but died in May. Eva Abernathy Schyde (1909-2003) his wife.
I found you on Harry Schyde's Find A Grave photo.
Would you please let me know if you can help with this request. Thank you Donna (

RE: Barachs in Congregation Mishkan Israel Cemetery
Thank you, I appreciate it. Sam and Deborah were definitely siblings. The info in the database is incorrect. I will let them know. Thanks again.

Jane Augusta Babcock 155852870

Curious, could the death year be 1915 instead of 1815?

I'm looking for a Jane Augusta (Wheaton) Babcock who was married to Hamlin Babcock.

Jane or Jennie, is the daughter of Amelia Ball and Noah Wheaton.

Thank you,

Vickie Smejkal
