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.

RE: Negro Mulatto burials
Thank you very much for your reply. The information you posted about the Oviatts that are buried in Evergreen cemetery, on Heart Rd., lead me to answers to many of my questions. Needless to say, I now have many more questions. My mother mentioned that there was an "Indian" Oviatt. I now believe that the ancestor was Isabella Oviatt. Now to connect this Oviatt family group to a known Oviatt family.
I hope that you know how much your volunteer work is appreciated.
Many thanks,
Marlaine Hysell

Negro Mulatto burials
Dear DWV, I have recently discovered mulatto and black relatives or freed slaves of relatives that lived in New Haven from at minimum the 1790's to the 1900's. Do you have any general information regarding where people of color would be buried? I would like to learn more about these relatives.
Thank for any information you are able to share,
Marlaine Hysell

Edwin Stannard Memorial# 176499710
Thank you for the information. I am transcribing records for Sailors Snug Harbor and this is the information that is listed for Edwin Stannard. This is the first time I am working on a project like this. These records date from 1923. Is it possible that in 1923 there was a East Haven Cemetery? I have removed the cemetery and put a note that the records state his burial place.
Thanks again.

I suspect this is Sarah Cecelia Burn(e)s NORTHROP not MORTHROP

Her husband Northrop, James E. 147390199
b. Jan. 26, 1839 d. Mar. 11, 1900 Plymouth, CT
Plot: Section: Fountain Avenue, Plot: 8, Grave: is in the same plot other Northrops are in the same plot -- James father Northrop, Garrett 147390191
b. Aug. 9, 1812 d. Mar. 14, 1875
Plot: Section: Fountain Avenue, Plot: 8, Grave: 5
and James and Sarah Cecelia's daughter who died young
Northrop, Mary E 147390204
b. unknown d. Nov. 5, 1870
Plot: Section: Fountain Avenue, Plot: 8, Grave: 8

Could this be a transcription error?

Thanks, Beth Northrop

RE: Edward J Newland #147389588
Whew, I wrote to Mr Fiore at the cemetery and he insists the death date is correct. But...(sign)...according to the SSDI no one named Edward Newland died on that date; I suspect there was a transcription error at some point in time. I have requested a photo and added Aunt Emma to the request.
Thanks for your assistance.

Also wondering....
The other Bardorfs, my great uncles, George, Oscar and Harry....also buried in the plot with Catharine Bardorf and Augsut Bardorf...

are there any WIVES buried there with Oscar, Harry or George Bardorf?

If you would be willing to transfer these people to me (Catherine Bardorf, August Bardorf, Harry Bardorf, George Bardorf, Edward Bardorf and Oscar Bardorf), I would be happy to manage them.

Thank you!!!!!
