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.

Volunteering is to freely offer to do something. Collaboration is the action of working with others to produce or create something. FAG is a wonderful site as volunteers collaborate for the benefit of all. It is unforunate that not all contributors adhere to the rules and don't understand these principles. Many hands make light work!

There are thousands of undocumented cemeteries and millions of unphotographed graves. It is counter productive to duplicate someone else's efforts, so, if you have headstone photos, please add them to the memorials.

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.

RE: Turner Family - Carmangay
Yes, the Our Roots compilations provide such a rich history of Alberta homesteaders - we're very fortunate to have access to them.

Hi - Bear Hugs
First I want to thankyou for your speedy edits that I have sent you for some of your memorials.

Please let me know
Thanks Anon

Hi, I was interested in your explanation of eligibility for transfer. Would you consider that if a sibling has passed, and also the children of the sibling, would the aunt or uncle of the children then be eligible for transfer?
I'm just curious as to your thoughts because I do have a situation like that, and the manager is refusing to transfer - even though their relationship to the children is not even close to being eligible.

I know this is out of the box, but I am curious as to the opinion of others.

Photo upload request

I just wanted to say to disregard my earlier e-mail message regarding uploading of photos to your memorials. I discovered that one can do this directly...hurray!

Regarding cemetery records: in Calgary, one can view the old cemetery records (prior to 1989) at the Glenbow library. Corporate records at City Hall has the original Interment Registers for each of the City of Calgary's cemeteries. Or you can call the administration office at Queen's Park.
