Bio and Links
Bio Photo Each time I create a memorial I delight in thinking that it may someday provide valuable information to a genealogist or comfort to a loved one.

Transfers - Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial, send a "Suggest any other correction" message including your "ID number", I'm more than happy to transfer memorials as per FAG rules which are your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. If your relationship to the deceased is not listed, please consider adding the memorial to one of your virtual cemeteries, and use the edit functions to add additional info to the memorial I created.

If FAMILY MEMBERS wish to have a memorial deleted I will do so, no questions asked.

Some dates/names on the headstones are hard to read. If you can help, please click the Edit tab at the top and input the changes. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated in the completion of "Unknown" and incomplete memorials.

Volunteer contributors spend countless hours creating memorials after visiting cemeteries, photographing headstones and obtaining burial information. I am sure everyone would like to know their efforts are appreciated. I know I do.

A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 125804799 Susan Veland
Thank you so much. I was really hoping for a lead to my grandmother (Rosa) because I know, if this is my grandmother, it was her (Rosa) who would have provided the information. Such a mystery about these two women. I can't give up.
I will see about contacting the cemetery for additional information. Wish me luck.
Thank you Hugs,

Find A Grave Memorial# 125804799 Susan Veland
Hello "Bear Hugs"
I am wondering how you came to discover an unmarked grave was that of Susan Veland. I suspect this could be my great grandmother therefore I would like to follow this lead.
Thank you

Moose Jaw Rosedale Cemetery
Hi, I am putting in the block, lot, and grave number of my memorials for Rosedale Cemetery. So it is taking some time to do, I also have the transcript of the cemetery, and I am working on that also.
Have a great day.

Hendricks People
Per your note on your profile page I will be adding info for the Hendricks people.

I am trying to find Brandon Hendricks who I believe is still living in Alberta, Canada when his father Robert Henry Hendricks died in 2010.

Where do you suggest I look for obituaries?
