Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired office worker and live in Brandon Manitoba and genealogy has been my main hobby (addiction) for many years. It all started by wandering our local cemetery and noticing so many old headstones - so I started taking photos of them - this led me to "find a grave" and I have entered many of our older stones. This led to another old cemetery in the area (burials prior to 1925), and then out to the smaller towns around Brandon and to many areas of the world where my ancestors had lived. They came from Northern Ireland, England and Scotland.
My family tree is extensive, but my main lines are Montgomery, Barton, Rixon, Bothwell and Nicholson.

Launa Nelson
George Henry Foreman
Hello, my name is Launa Foreman-Nelson, I am a descendant of George Henry Foreman. I came across this web page and see that you take photos of the grave stones. My father has been trying to compile a family tree and is having a hard time trying to find info on our family. Could you possibly email me photos you have taken of George Henry's stone. His wife is Sarah Jane "Jennie" Cowan Foreman. Any photos or info you could provide me with would be much appreciated.

Thank you
Launa Nelson

I think I can enter the names from the lists here:

http://www.hillmanweb.com/bmhc/pics/cairn3.html

so I just need the coordinates for both cemeteries. Thanks for your help.

1) If you can find a location on Google Maps, you just need to right-click on the spot and select "What's Here?" That will give you the coordinates. It would really help to have the coordinates for both cemeteries.

2) As far as you know, there is no listing on Findagrave for the new cemetery? If so, I will put it on myself. I just don't want to create a duplicate listing if it's already on there under some other name.

Do you have GPS coordinates for this cemetery?

Also, is the "new" cemetery on Findagrave? Do you have coordinates for that one too?

RE: Joyce Family
Thank you so much Janet for sending me the information and for transferring the records over. I will write to get the photo of the grave. George Frederick Joyce was the head engineer for Brandon on the CP Rail. Other family members may be in this cemetery including the Anderson family. They were all pretty dynamic characters. Thanks again.
Sincerely, Maureen Joyce

Thank you for creating this record. Mary Jane McAnerin (I have submitted a correction) Joyce is my great grandmother. The McAnerin name has often been transcribed incorrectly as it is very rare. She did come from Barnet Greater London.
Her parents were London City Missionaries. The McAnerin children came to Canada through the Home School Program.
Thanks again for your interest in recording these Brandon families.

RE: Gay Smith
Her parents were originally from Manitoba and I believe they lived in Brandon after they were married. They moved to Vancouver in 1948.

I don't really know much more - what I have was found on-line.
