Donate to help this project

This website focuses on photographs and documenting the gravestones of local Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire history and genealogy of early ancestors who settled New England, and gravestone artistry. It's also completely a volunteer effort by a very small amount of people. Your contributions help keep this site growing. Please consider a donation if you've found anything interesting here.

If you are making a research request please make a donation of only $5.00 or more towards the support and expansion of this web site. Lot's of you are asking me for information and research that takes away from time spent adding more photos to the site and doing my regular fulltime job. When you ask me questions about individuals in general it can take some time researching to prepare an answer. Please consider donating towards the site's benefit in exchange.

If you are interested in seeing a cemetery photographed or finding an individual person and listed on the site you should consider Sponsoring a Cemetery. Make a donation of $100 or more with your request for a specific cemetery or the name of the person you are searching for and town they're believed to be buried in.

If you are making a request, please don't contact me if you don't have the cemetery the people you searching for are buried in or at least some detailed information . There's nothing I can help you with if all you send me is a name, no date of death and have no idea what cemetery they're buried in. Get a copy of the deceased's death certificate, easily done from the town they died in or were born in and contact the town or funeral homes to find what cemetery they're buried in.
