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 re-search and was able to go back to the 1600's on my Dad's side. Nottingham, England.

** DO TO HEALTH PROBLEMS - NOT ABLE TO GET TO THE REGINA CEMETERIES THIS SUMMER, 2014 **

*************************************

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. So need to exercise as much as I can. Try getting to Cemetery at lease once a week to take pictures. Love helping others as much as I can in research.

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

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.

RE: Clifford Harry Haskins
Regarding the grave site for Martha Mae Johnston Payne, it appears she is buried in the same plot as Clifford Harry Haskins and there is no marker, do you wish for me to post Mr. Haskins picture again and make a note they share the plot?

Hi Ron. I believe Viola is buried in Moosomin South Cemetery. I will check for marker in spring on way back from Arizona. Dean

Ira Palmer
Thank you for transferring Ira Palmer to me. Does that mean you are giving me permission to use the headstone photo on my Ancestry tree?

Irvine Resnik
I lost contact with Irvine many years ago.

I recently moved to New Zealand and when unpacking found a letter from his mother with Irvine's address in it (the letter was written in the early 80's).

I planned to write to Irvine, but first Googled him to see if there was any information about him that might help establish whether or not he was still living at the same address so many years later. Sadly, it was his gravestone that I came across.

If it were not for your service, I would not have known that he had passed away and when.

Thank you.

Regards,
Susan

Hi Ron,

Hope this finds you well and recovered from your health problem.
I am writing to ask if you could please remove the photo you added to my father's memorial? I would like to add the photo of his gravesite and I already have a few photos of him there. Thank you for your help in this matter. Rhonda Nelson Mills

Jeanette Webb in Ogema
Hello Ron,
In Sept 2014, I photographed all of the Ogema cemetery. I have posted a photo of the plastic marker for Jeanette Webb (#125163773). If you would like me to remove if from her page, as it is not the permanent marker, just let me know and I will be happy to do so. I figure it's better to post this one than nothing at all but I can remove it as well. Thanks for all your hard work,
Yolande
