Keith Forrester Elder
I cannot see the actual death record and will not pay $26 to get a copy. The Huntingdon Gleaner from Huntingdon County Quebec records a marriage to Winnifred Lea on Sept 21, 1925 in Coronation ALBERTA. They are living in BC in 1957 , according to a voters list.
What is your connection to this Forrester family? My husband is a desendent of Janet Forrester and William Henderson.

Please share your source for believing this person died as a child in Calgary. I question this fact because in the 1916 census for Alberta, a 15 year old Keith Elder , born in Quebec, was working in Bow River District as a labourer for a John McIntosh and a BC death record for a Keith Forrester Elder, born in Quebec Aug 1901, died in Nanaimo BC on Oct 27, 1967

RE: Elders and Smaills
Thank you for your message.
I'm happy to see the memorials go to someone who has a connection to the people and is willing to add the family links and bio info.

Rex Leland Harrison
Hi, Marilyn. I saw that you posted a picture of Rex Harrison on Find A Grave. How are you related? My mother was Selma (Ford) Peterson, the daughter of Lillian (Harrison) Ford, so Rex was her uncle and my grand uncle.

RE: Browns
Hi Marilyn

No Problem. Let me know if you see any others. There is no way for me to properly manage all of these memorials. I had some spare time this week so I thought I would update this site to help out others that are doing research. Finding a long lost relative is like winning the lotto.

Have you ever visited this cemetery?

Happy Digging.

Hello Marilyn,

First, I want to assure you that I take my stewardship of memorial pages seriously, and always link and update them promptly as requested. I will be happy to create any links and update memorial pages as suggested, always giving credit and a link back to the contributor's profile page.

Secondly, I prefer to follow Find A Grave's transfer guidelines, although I sometimes transfer to direct relatives outside of the four generations, or to close relatives, ie: cousins, nieces or nephews within a generation or two, or when an individual dies childless.

The following is from Find A Grave's frequently asked questions.

"How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred."

Unless the memorial pages are your for direct relatives, I prefer not to transfer them.
