Bio and Links
Bio Photo I like visiting cemeteries and taking photos - they may not always be the BEST photos, but I try for legible.
I really don't have time to do links, if you are related at all, please just ask for a transfer - I really do want all the memorials I've created to be with family.
I have a lot of photos that I just haven't gotten uploaded yet - but if I created a memorial, then I have a photo for it.

I'm not related to any of the Maine memorials I've created and I'm just a caretaker, I'll transfer to any family members. I don't know anything beyond what is on the stones.
I give permission for the use of my photographs for any reason, but would like credit. "Photo courtesy of Brenda Ball" will suffice. I do have larger copies of all photos, if that's helpful.

If I fulfill a photo request for you, or transfer a memorial out of guidelines, I expect a 'thank you'. Hopefully, in 'real life' when someone does something nice for you, you take the time to thank them. Online life is the same way, if you don't bother, then *I* won't bother.

Headstone linked to wrong person
Hi Brenda,
I believe you may have the wrong marker on a grave for this person:Wilfred Bourassa
Dates don't match his marker #109808671
More likely this memorial: #121550632
Someone also found his dog tags on Ebay and we're trying to help find family who might want them. Not sure if they sold yet but the owner was asked to donate to a museum if not. I can get more info if needed. Thank you.

Hi Ms Brenda,

During a bright moment I found Elizabeth E Stubbs' tombstone picture, I happen to have many dim moments. I don't know how to walk away & take a break when I lose focus on this genealogy research. Too stubborn.

This morning I found it right off the bat, thanks for the pictures!!!

Charles G[ordon] Tribou
I was wondering if next to his tombstone was any other Tribou family member, maybe his wife, Annie Elizabeth Stubbs [27 Oct 1864-24 Sep 1931].

I know his son Charles Harry Tribou is there.

Thanks for any information.

Hope you're doing well
Hi Brenda

Haven't heard from you in while. I hope you're doing well.

You have several SAC emails in your inbox from me. A couple of them concern your photos but the rest can be forwarded to Edit if life is interfering with this hobby. Just let me know!
