Cemetery Records - Tolland County Records

From Doug Sinclair: While including the Hale Collection information for North Cemetery in Somers is valuable, there is a problem with the entire collection. Transcribers didn't differentiate between the meaning of someone dying "age -----," and someone dying "in their ---- year" when found on the gravestones. If someone dies in their 80th year, for instance, it means that they were 79 and would turn 80 on their next birthday. He is afraid that people will go directly to the Hale page and never see the information his site, which is more extensive and accurate than that in Hale for stones before 1800, roughly, when the "in their --- year" terminology was popular. It's those stones that are going to be of the most interest to researchers. There are always going to be mistakes here and there in historical information that we aren't aware of but in this case, we have a known problem. There are a lot of pages on the web with Hale information but maybe we can at least indicate the problem for Somers.
