Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Daughter and I love genealogy, photography and cemeteries...we are photo volunteers in our spare time for Find a Grave to help others locate their ancestors.
I can't stop you from taking and using our photos but please give credit where credit is due...not only for our pictures, but for those taken by other Find a Grave members as well.
We have finished digitizing the Ste. Anne de Titanic cemetery and adding photos to the St. Boniface - Leofeld cemetery page and are now currently working to digitize Blessed Sacrament Cemetery - Duck Lake, Sk....taking as many photos as possible while the weather is nice...leaving the downloading and data for the colder weather!!

Thank You so much for photographing Titanic. My mother was adopted and I have been trying to research anything I could about the predigers and what you have shown me helped quite a bit. Thank You Paul.

RE: Hello!!
Hi Cheryl
Good to know you are still out there 'graving'
Long time since we chatted
My summer is going great so many lovely little Ukrainian cemeteries around here and so little time to get to them all
How's your summer?

RE: Sametta Schmidt @ St. Boniface Leofeld
I really appreciate you doing all that work, and I'm sure it will help a lot of other people find their relatives too. It's great that there didn't end up being too many unmarked plots. I guess I should check to see if I can submit a correction on the name for Loretta to that website that had the cemetery index.

RE: Sametta Schmidt @ St. Boniface Leofeld
p.s. I just saw the listing you made with the photo for "Lorette". I don't know... I searched the index and did not find any Schmidt who died in 1911, including all possible alternate spellings of the last name. So I wonder if this is the baby Lorretta but the stone was done later with the wrong year by accident. The age at death is fine for her. So I'm not sure.

RE: Sametta Schmidt @ St. Boniface Leofeld
I think you are right! I just checked in the SK vital records index and I found this (below). The death date is the same as that on the website I had used before, so they would not have had 2 babies die on the same day.

Registration Number: 2894
Last Name: SCHMIDT
First Name: LORRETTA J
Sex: F
Death Date (yyyy/mm/dd): 1916 / 6 / 20
Place of Death: Mother

So I checked all Schmidts who dies in SK in 1916 and there was no Sametta listed. The grave transcription on that website must have been a misreading of her first name?
I have updated her listing to say Lorretta.

RE: Trippel headstone
Hi Cheryl
Thank you so much. I would love to have that photo too. John (Johannes) was my husband's grandfather and his grandmother was Maria Trippel, John's first wife. Maria and Johannes came from Russia around 1890. I found a book online about early Rosthern and they arrived in February and lived in a tent!!! What a hardship to help build this beautiful country. I think there are a number of Trippels still living in Rosthern. I have put my name down to take gravesite photos as you are doing. I haven't done any yet. I must get going at it. I was planning on doing it after retiring but that hasn't seemed to happen yet. I live in Chilliwack BC.
Thank You

Trippel headstone
Thank you so much for taking the time to get this headstone photo. It has really helped me to sort out that line in my ancestry search. Trippels originally came to Canada from Russia so there are not too many records to follow. Thank you again.
