Doug lived in the City Point neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut from age 5 to his early 20s, but was a treasure trove of information about the area. Even in his last months he was an avid internet user. Last year he & I spent an hour on the phone, both looking at the 1934 aerial photo on www.CityPointNewHavenConnecticut.net Being a former pilot, he was able to identify many things that most people would miss. I never had a chance to meet him in person, but considered him a great friend. He'll be missed. My condolences. RIP

Dear, Dear Ro - So many good memories that will live on thanks to Doug. I am very proud to have called him uncle, but even more proud to have called him a friend. The world would be a better place if there were more Doug Kelseys.

We will both miss Uncle Doug a great deal. We loved hearing his stories and laughing at his jokes. You and Uncle Doug were married longer than either of us have lived. We are truely inspired by the love you shared for each other and the concern you had for each other. His interest in the computer and his family ancestry has inspired us both to also follow in this vein. He was a great source of information in getting us started. We will miss him very much. R & M
