Located in Central Alberta, Canada, but my camera and I travel to many other places.|
I have photos for most all of the memorial pages that I have created BUT I have not uploaded them. So even in the middle of an Albertan winter with snow 2 feet deep I can still add photos to pages I have already created, simply let me know which memorial you are interested in and I will add a photo for you. Bearing in mind that FaG says it takes about 1 minute to upload a photo onto a page I probably will never get all the photos I have added to the correct pages. I do not receive emails letting me know that people have submitted a photo request close to my home , so PLEASE message me directly so that I may fulfill your request.
If you would like me to remove a memorial please let me know and I shall remove it right away - no questions asked.
Some of the cemeteries we have visited have markers written in languages other than English. I have photos but can not translate the inscriptions. If you think one of your loved ones might be in a cemetery where we have taken pictures but is not listed on Find A Grave, please contact me and I will try to help you.
Having Lyme Disease I need less stress in my life and need "gentle exercise" I find taking photos for Find A Grave gets me the fresh air, and the tranquility I need in the summer months and uploading the information exercises my mind in winter. If you need to know more about Lyme Disease check- www.canlyme.com
Because of the few RUDE people demanding I transfer pages to them, I shall no longer make transfers unless you are polite AND can show me that the pages you would like transfered to you are people closely related to you. The words Please and Thank You frequently cause miracles to occur and are much appreciated.
If you use the EDIT button at the top right of the memorial page to make your request then "Suggest a correction or provide additional information",I can be sure I have the correct person. Please include your Find A Grave number on your request. Should you find that I have made a mistake entering information or have inadvertantly duplicated an entry please let me know I will remedy the situation as soon as possible.

Could I make a request?
My great grandmother is buried at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, but it is not listed on Findagrave.
This Spring, could you locate her grave an post a photo of her stone?
Henrietta Humphries-Kiernan b. 1854 England, d. December 29, 1951 Edmonton, burial January 2, 1952.
Thank you for your consideration
|Karen ||RE: Pasiaud|
Thank you so much for your reply. Now I know why I can't find anything! I also have relatives in England that I'm trying to find info on. I guess it just takes learning some tricks of the trade! I hope AB will follow BCs lead sometime soon and I will follow your advice and send that request.
Also apologies, I checked Freda's Find a Grave and see that I had forgotten to do the link to her husband which is now done.
Thank you every so much for your help!
(And apologies too for my typos last message - was just so excited that you answered me!)

Yes Freda's husband is Rodger (my great Uncle). I still have not had any luck in finding her husband. (It looks like on the headstone he was supposed to be buried beside her and it didn`t happen.) Family sources years ago gave me the info he did Dec 12, 1997 in Blairmore long term care. They had no furhter info and the relative that informed me has since passed.
Alison, I appreciate that you are a very busy person, but I wonder if I may ask you if you know how to find death certificates in AB? (Or marriage or birth etc.) In BC the Royal Museum has archives on-line to search but I have not been able to find such a resource for AB. I am new at searching on-line for my family and if you have time to point me in the right direction I would much appreciate it. I understand that request isn't part of Find A Grave services but admired the way you were able to so quickly check for Freda's husband - and admire the fact that you even did check. If this is an inappropriate question then I apologize for taking your time. If you prefer you can email direct firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you for the transfer and headstone photo of my great aunt Freda. I still have not found any info on her husband but just wanted to thank you for the great work you do.

Thank you for taking the time to photograph
these headstones. It means so much to us
family tree enthusiasts to find these relics!
Thank you so much for the transfer of Macil. I have linked to her husband and just sent you a link for her son as well.
I knew that had moved to Saskatchewan, but didn't know where.
Again, thank you for adding this family.

I have forgotten how early winter can come in Canada. Here we have had one or two flurries, but today it is sunny and 6°.
I will ask again in the Spring. The two memorials I mentioned, href="http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=121055342">Robert
Findlay and his wife Jane, have now been transferred to me, and I have added bios and links.
All the best.

I forgot to mention that memorials were added for Robert and Jane FINLAY from the Edmonton cemetery database just a couple of days ago on 1 Dec, but with little information, other than when and where they were buried. I have written the person who added these records to ask for a transfer or alternately to update the records for me.

I have finally tracked down Robert Findlay (a great grand uncle), father of David Noble Findlay of Jasper (who is also buried at Beechmount). Robert and his wife Jane are also buried there, but are indexed under the name Finlay (why I didn't try looking for them earlier I don't know):
Last Name First Name Burial Date Cemetery Section Block Plot
FINLAY ROBERT 09/28/1918 BEECHMOUNT 0021 0021
FINLAY JANE 11/08/1919 BEECHMOUNT 0021 0020
With a helpful tip from the Edmonton library I found a death notice for Robert which made sure he was the right person:
The Edmonton Bulletin, 28 Sep 1918, p.3
DEATH OF ROBT. FINDLAY
The death took place at Grande Prairie on Friday Morning of Robt. Findlay, a former resident of the city. He leaves to mourn a widow, two sons, one residing at Grande Prairie and one at Jasper, and a daughter, Mrs. Hardy, residing in Manitoba. The funeral will be held on Sunday afternoon from Andrews' undertaking parlors.
I would appre4ciate it very much if some time you might be visiting this cemetery if you could get a picture the gravestone.
Thanks in advance,
