Bio and Links
We both enjoy the hobby of genealogy, and value the information that can often be gleaned from grave markers. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO MAKE USE OF ANY PHOTOS WE'VE POSTED TO ENHANCE YOUR FAMILY TREE. Once we're retired (in a few more years), we plan to become more active as photo volunteers to be able to contribute more.

FYI: We are working towards photographing all of the approximately 2900 grave markers at the Veteran's Cemetery in Esquimalt - Sections D & E have been completed - Section F is in progress. The rest to follow. If you'd like a photo not yet uploaded, please post a photo request, and we will get it at the first opportunity.

Your efforts are much appreciated. Sad the grave is unmarked but good of you to highlight the photo and post the Obituary. I have record of her Baptism in Southwark, Surrey, England which isn't far from Devonshire. She was in the Channel Islands with her family then Scotland where her son, Benjamin George, was born before they later went to Canada.

Adams Family
Hi Betty and Dan,

Thank you so much for all the information you provided about the Adams family. Your help was invaluable. What a sad family, I knew about the untimely death of the child, but the other tragedies are so sad. I suppose everyone has their sorrows in life, but this family seems to have been given an unfair share.

RE: Metchosin Cemetery
Thank you. Another addiction, geez. Yes I had found the online list of internments. I have done a fair bit of family research and spent quite a bit of time at the archives by the museum. Another addiction. At the time I was going there they were in the process of putting the registrations online. But I have already found a couple that arent online from Metchosin so I get to go back down again next week. Love a good hunt. I can see myself going back to Metchosin, and I have a son who lives in Sooke, so I may get out there and have a look around too. Thanks for your reply. Good luck on the veterans cemetery.

Metchosin Cemetery
Betty,Dan. Thats quite a challenge photographing Veterans on Colville road. I was out at Metchosin Cemetery today. What a beautiful little church and cemetery. Was there with intent on photographing the Field family. Photographed a few more and may go back and continue with as many as I can. I'm new on here but got the bug already. I have a few pictures of the church and grounds I took today, I see you have put some up, do you mind if I put up a couple of mine?

Betty and Dan,

Thank you so much for the picture and newspaper clipping you posted today for me. It means so much to me! Where did you get the clipping? I am interested in learning a little more about the family, do you know the full name of the father and the name of the mother? Thanks for all you do.

Thank you so much for finding this grave. I'm surprised it's unmarked. I assume you used the cemetery office records? Would there have been any other data there?

Thank You!!!!
Trying to track down my great great grandfather's brothers. The information is so helpful when you are following any leads. I so appreciate the time and effort you took to assist in my search.
