Located in Central Alberta, Canada, but 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. I do not receive emails letting me know that people have submitted a photo request close to my home , so PLEASE message me directly so that I may fulfill your request.
If you would like me to remove a memorial please let me know and I shall remove it right away - no questions asked.
Some of the cemeteries we have visited have markers written in languages other than English. I have photos but can not translate the inscriptions. If you think one of your loved ones might be in a cemetery where we have taken pictures but is not listed on Find A Grave, please contact me and I will try to help you.
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- www.canlyme.com
Because of the few RUDE people demanding I transfer pages to them, I shall no longer make transfers unless you are polite AND can show me that the pages you would like transfered to you are people closely related to you. The words Please and Thank You frequently cause miracles to occur and are much appreciated.
If you use the EDIT button at the top right of the memorial page to make your request then "Suggest a correction or provide additional information",I can be sure I have the correct person. Please include your Find A Grave number on your request. 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.

No I am not related but lately I've been searching for old obituaries as well as new for police officers. They get so little appreciation
|Karen ||RE: Pasiaud|
As a newbie at this I am very lost and searching BC seems to be easy but I am at a total loss - don't know any sites or procedures for AB or England/France to be honest.....just kind of stumbling in the dark with Googling. That's why I was so excited and appreciative of what you are doing. I will check that site thank you! I'd be really appreciative if you have time to tell me how to go about archives (I have a severe perfume allergy that keeps me from physically going to many places so on-line and by email/mail is my usual means.)
It seems many of my relatives came from England/France lived in the coal mining towns in BC but would come to AB (Letbridge I think) to marry, and some did pass away in AB.
Thank you very much again!

Oh Alison, thank you so very much! I have not even been able to find anything with the info that you already gave me....ironically I did turn up an obit in France from 1921 which I did translate from French and don't have a clue who the deceased is - yet - while trying to search in the Crowsnest Pass!
Roger Pasiaud married Freda Mildred Webb 10/28/24 and one daughter pre-deceased him Bernice Borsato in 1987. (Their only child.) I am the granddaughter of Roger's brother Rene Pasiaud (married to Edna Brewer both deceased.) Parents Amelia Dumont Pasiaud and Joseph Pasiaud. (Joseph is a mysery - may have returned to France.) Giving you all this info in case it helps you with your (my) search. How can I ever thank you for taking the time to look for this for me?

I am more of a dog person, but now have 4 cats--2 feral and 2 (mostly)indoor. All 4 cats have been fixed and all have their current shots. As the years go by, the feral cats are becoming more and more tame, and sometimes even sleep with me. Still wish I had dogs, but the cats love me to pieces, so guess there isn't anything that I can do about it but to keep them.

Thanks so much for the George Hood transfer!
|Joan Donnelly||Inspector Kristian Fjeldsted Anderson|
Just thought you might add this to his memorial.
Anderson, who was a prominent Member of the [Royal Northwest Mounted Police] RNWMP, was born in Iceland on May 22, 1866. He came to Canada in 1887 and joined the NWMP in August 1889. He first came to the community as part of a patrol in the winter of 1898-99, with his primary role being mail carrier. Anderson served 32 years in Canada's North, and made a name for himself after he collected enough physical evidence to solve a high profile murder case. From 1906-15, he was stationed in Peace River, and aside from being a Staff Sergeant and then Inspector, was an active member of the Peace River Board of Trade and one of the first members of the Anglican Church. Anderson purchased this particular property in 1914 and built the residence circa 1920 for his retirement. He lived in the house from 1921 until 1940, when he and his wife moved to Jasper, Alberta. He passed away January 8, 1949 at the age of 82. The Anderson Residence is also significant to the community of Peace River as a good example of vernacular architecture typical of the 1920s. The residence, finished by Anderson himself, is simply embellished with Arts and Crafts inspired detailing represented by decorative trim, bargeboards and exposed rafter tails.

Thank you Alison. I appreciate it. Doris (ps sorry for all the messages...I am pretty sure I only click "send" once !!)
|Doris Wyss||Reginald Howard Eagleson|
Alison, thank you so much for posting Reginald's memorial along with the t.s. photo. I do have additional information to be posted on his memorial. Reginald was born 28 Aug 1884 in Ottawa, Ontario. He did pass on 21 Jan 1920 in Kamloops, British Columbia. I would like to ask your permission to post the t.s. photo on ancestry.com with photo credit to yourself. Please let me know if this would be okay with you. Thanks again, Doris
|Karen ||RE: Pasiaud|
Thank you so much for your reply. Now I know why I can't find anything! I also have relatives in England that I'm trying to find info on. I guess it just takes learning some tricks of the trade! I hope AB will follow BCs lead sometime soon and I will follow your advice and send that request.
Also apologies, I checked Freda's Find a Grave and see that I had forgotten to do the link to her husband which is now done.
Thank you every so much for your help!
(And apologies too for my typos last message - was just so excited that you answered me!)

Thank you for the transfer and headstone photo of my great aunt Freda. I still have not found any info on her husband but just wanted to thank you for the great work you do.
