Hell-O
Growing up I was brought up on old stories, this website allows me to preserve a few memories. There's no competition, or any reason I have the need to be in charge of something, I inputted here.

It's all just simply for the record of someone I may have known, or was acquainted with or may have a family connection.

Why? I got interested in doing family history in 1995 I did most of the research by writing letters, contacting people and connecting the dots. Then about 2000 the computer genealogy information started to take over and I gradually lost interest.

It was a serious hobby in the past, I enjoyed writing letters and receiving letters, the computer information became a little demanding from some people, started arguments on who information was whose and so gave it up.

Although it wasn't all bad I did make some new connection and got some positive family information, I don't think I would have got any other way.

I'm not in this to compete, or prove anything. Nine times - out ten the - input is usually already there.But if I get that 1% to add something, I do because, I recognize the person and try to - input, connect and make the memorial of the person a memory, not a findagrave statistic for my personnel archive.

If anyone has anything you need to contact me about please do. I haven't written any promisesin here, but I will give what you have to say real consideration.Usually you're right, give me a little time and then a correction can be made..

Have nice day and thanks for contacting me

Respectfully Frank.W

Albion Cemetery, SK
Hi,
It is located 16 mi. N on Hgw 17 from the juction of Hgw 16 and 17 in Lloydminser. then 11 mi E on Hgw 3 then N about 3/4 mile off of Hgw 3.

My co-ordinates on the map on this site are accurate. You should be able to enter the Lat/long and Google a route from your location or into a GPS.

In SK I would suggest the Regina, Saskatoon, Battleford, Lloydminster route for amenities and accommodation. Hgw 21 would be an adventurous route as it does not go through any major centres.

In AB the major route would be Calgary to Edmonton on Hgw 2, the Henday bypass to Hgw 16 East to Lloyd. You could take 41 to Vermilion then to Lloyd.
or 36 to E of Vegreville then to Lloyd.

If you email me at the address I posted previous I can send you a MS Excel Plot of the cemetery.
Regards,
Bernie

Hi,
Having trouble with Java. My system tells me it is a virus and it keeps telling me to install update...
So may take me a while to get all done
The cemetery was inaugurated by my Great Grandfather and he deeded part of his farm for the purpose in perpetuity. Most of the interments are family and neighbors. I decided to photo and transcribe it to give back to genealogy.
Always glad to have family take over their own.
