Bio Photo The words Please and Thank You frequently cause miracles to occur and are much appreciated.

Because I live in Canada I do not receive emails letting me know that people have submitted a photo request to a cemetery I have visited/ photographed, so PLEASE message me directly so that I may fulfill your request.

Located in Edmonton, Alberta. 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.

If you would like me to remove a memorial please let me know and I shall remove it right away - no questions asked.

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 - and

To request a transfer please use the EDIT button at the top right of the person's page.

Because of the few RUDE people demanding I transfer pages to them, I shall no longer make transfers unless you are polite AND can explain to me how the person is someone closely related to you. However, as FaGer Scott wrote :- if there is any particular entry that I have made that is very important to you, related or not, if you sponsor it I will transfer it to you ASAP. This helps Findagrave and shows me that this entry truly is important to you and that you are not simply trying to 'collect' all you can find of a particular surname.

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.

Here is the latest on Anna Wejr AKA Pochova Slopak.
As I mentioned in my last Mailing.

Anna Wejr Married her son Antony in 1915 in Frank Canada, Anthony was born 23 March 1891 in Czech Republic and died 2 March 1964 in Tacoma.
Anthony and Anna (Wejr) Slapak had one child Anthony Clyde Slapak born 21 Oct 1916 in Canada He died 25 Nov 1963 in Tacoma

Anna Pochova Married Antonin in Czech Republic Antonin was born 12 feb 1859 and died 8 Dec 1915 in Frank Canada.

Frank Wejr is not the husband of Anna Pochova a you list her on her find a grave. he should be removed.

Also when Anthony registered for WWII he listed his father-in-law Frank Wejr as his contact

What a mess !!

RE: Daisy Keen..
Thanks Alison, if you search for the microfilm dated May 1929, Edmonton Journal the detailed story of Arthur Reginald Keen was given including a photo of the unfortunate youth.. killed a week before the Crash that brought on the Great Depression.

The man responsible admitted it was his fault.. Arthur was in a considered safe zone, when a fellow employee decided to stick a rod in between the wheels, which fired like a missile and struck my uncle in the side of the head crushing the skull..

Years ago I requested the Edmonton Journal May 1929, God... Alison felt like I was going blind going over the small print...

Very tired I thought that was that, when a very strong urge pushed me to continue on looking,..

A detail of who attended young Arthur,s Funeral, Steel Workers, Family, Boy Scouts.. etc and relatives Ive never heard of...

Thanks again,, Fascinating but tragic..
I feared Arthur Reginald would have been lost,

RE: photograph
Dear Alison:

Thank you for the information. I have e-mailed the Grand Prairie Genealogical Society. I found you on Find-A-Grave for a headstone photograph of Albert R. Smith at the Lake Saskatoon cemetery. Upon clicking the name for for the person posting the photo (Lee Ann Archer), the link re-directs to her profile in which she thanks you (Alison) for transferring the memorial to her. So, naturally I thought you were the one who shot the photo of the Albert R Smith headstone.

Daisy Keen..
God Bless you.. I originally was searching for a photo of her husband, my grandfather Arthur Charles Keen 1888-1957..who is buried among the others at the Soldiers Grave..

What is sad is that my grandmother Daisy Cardall Keen, had a son Arthur Reginald Keen who died in a Steel Factory accident which was not his fault at age 17 years in May 1929..
She also lost a daughter prior in 1923 Doris aged 2 from an burst appendix.

No sign of them.. So sad and lonely for not even a flower on her grave, or a electronic token until I found her again through you, shared with my brothers... Hopefully they shall note it.

Go Bless again and thanks for the reunion with her...

Dear Alison:

I found you through your photo of the Smith marker at Lake Saskatoon Cemetery. My great-great-grandparents are buried there. They are Jacob Anderson (1859-1936) and Julia Anderson (1859-1932). If you are in the area, would you be able to photograph their grave stone/marker and e-mail them to me? If not, do you know someone who lives in the area, like in Wembley or Grand Prairie, who can do this? I'd gladly pay $20 to do this for me. I am in Chicago, 1900 miles away, which unfortunately is too far for me to go.

They are not on the website,

Thank you.

Hi Alison : My uncle did confirm that that is the correct cemetery for Katrina Lopushinsky. Thanks, Darcy

Katrina Lopushinsky
Hi Alison : The birth and death dates for the file Katrina Lopushinsky that you transferred over to me were both off from what I was expecting to see. So, I looked at Prairie Souls site for other Katrina or Catherine Lopushinsky's and none of them can be correct so I guess this is the right one. Perhaps my uncle's memory wasn't so good that his grandma died only 2 years before Fred Lopushinky. according to her grave it would have been 8 years. Thanks, Darcy

Thank you so much for transferring this memorial to me. In the coming days, I will add his parents and children. If you have other photos of this family, I would be very happy to see them if you wish to share. Thank you again, Viola Biron

RE: perfectly done
Hi Alison : thanks so much. Not sure if you caught an earlier question, but have you come across a grave marker for a Caska or Katerina Lopushinsky, or perhaps last name Chmilar ? Darcy

Mary Starchuk
Hi Alison: Mary Starchuk was my mom's aunt, but I remember her well from many visits our family made to her home. Back then she lived in the country near Smoky Lake. She lived alone and was a widow. she also lived off the main road at the bottom of a hill. We always said that if anything should happen to her that nobody would ever know. I was wondering if you would be so kind to transfer her file to my care ? Also, I am interested in her mother, Caska or Katerina Lopushinsky. She may have been buried under this name, or perhaps under her last husband's name Chmilar. Not sure if that marriage lasted, so the confusion. Have you come across such a grave ? Thanks, Darcy Starrs.
