Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing research for the past 30 years in (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada). I have been retired from the (R.C.M.P.) Royal Canadian Mounted Police for 35 years. Enjoy doing research, did 25 years of working on the history of the oldest existing Junior Hockey Team in the World (Regina Pats). Finally having the history published as a book in 2010.

I have been a member of the Saskatchewan Genealogical Society for over 25 years and have been doing my family for approximately 40 years.

I worked on my family research and was able to go back to the 1600's on my Dad's side. Nottingham, England.


I had two serious car accidents, one resulting in a neck problem and four years ago found out I have Post-Polio Syndrome, resulting in fatigue and tiredness. Not able to get to the Cemetery to take pictures any more. Love helping others as much as I can in research.


(REGINA CEMETERY): Vandalism Hits Cemetery - 1993 and 2011

**** Thoughtless vandals tipped over and damaged several memorials in the historic Regina Cemetery.

Both our home community and the families effected by this disgraceful crime deserve better.

This is why Remco of Regina stepped in to help repair the damage and re-set these monuments at no charge to the cemetery or the families effected.


Unfortunately, the careless act of vandals who entered the secured Regina Cemetery on May 13, 2011 has left a number of headstones damaged. In some cases damage is only minimal and headstones can be put back in place. Other cases are more substantial. The responsibility for fixing or replacing the headstones is the responsibility of the next of kin or a designate.

At least 70 headstones were damaged, with some simply toppled while others were broken altogether.

(I have the complete list of damaged tombstones)

Due to the damage, some head stones are still on their faces. One shows were a portable saw removed half of the printing.

(REGINA CEMETERY) - EACH BLOCK (Has 2 Rows) - Their are some that have only one row.

ALSO: Have come across a lot (about 50 or more) of tombstones that are unreadable and damaged.


(REGINA JEWISH CEMETERY) - WE HAD ALL PHOTO'S of the tombstones. A lady wanted the Jewish Cemetery to be separate. I had the Regina Cemetery and Jewish Cemetery together. She started up a separate Jewish site. Said she had all the photo's, so I removed all the photo's from the Regina site.

Could you please attach my aunt to her husband's memorial # 80931090 and add in the correct information and then attach her to her parents - along with my Dad's memorial or cancel this memorial and I will add it in correctly??

I have added pictures of her gave marker already in another memorial.

Sarah Ann Johnston
Hi Ron,
Sarah Ann Johnston should be from Regina and is deceased. I have not been able to find where my GGGrandmother is buried. I understand not going to the cemeteries any more. Do you happen to have her in your geneology. I also am related to Duke, Dutkowski and Dutkovschi. I am interested in my Johnston ancestors.

Hi Ron,
Thank you ever so much for the great photos of the headstone for Lloyd and Bernice Wolfe's memorials. As well, "Thank You" for the time and the work that you have done, it is very much appreciated. To be able to see the final resting place of loved ones is extra special. Hope your day is a wonderful one!
Regards, Olga
