Bio and Links
This is my way of honouring the dead who might otherwise be forgotten. It's always a thrill to be contacted by researchers who appreciate finding their missing family members. Where possible plot information is included to help family and friends locate their loved one. Marker or monument photos show what the grave looks like today, especially helpful for those people who are unable to visit in person. Sadly, sometimes the photos document vandalism.

You may LINK from your family tree (Ancestry or other) to a Find A Grave photo or page, but you may NOT copy and paste the photo or content. This includes screenshots.

Instructions for Ancestry: Click on the Find A Grave photo or memorial you want, and copy the URL from the address bar. On the profile page of the person, in the bottom right corner, click on the <+web link> button. Paste the URL into the box and add a caption. Click on the button; once you do that, the name of the caption will appear in the Web Links Box for you to quickly access at any time, without violating my copyright.

Due to my photos and bios being lifted and posted to other websites (Ancestry, for example) without permission and/or attribution, I have been forced to add a copyright notice to all of my photos. I may have missed a few, but consider them all copyrighted. When I find them, I absolutely do file a take-down notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and Ancestry for one has been (promptly!) removing my content when notified.

I no longer make out-of-guidelines transfers. As always, I am more than willing to make links and replace my bio with a better one. I do not link to dupes, nor to burials unknown. And please use the edit tab to Suggest A Correction!

The Royal BC Museum has posted many BC Archives BMD certificates online. has also has many BMD certificates. If the one you need is not on either website, I am willing to check the microfilms at the Nelson Municipal Library for you, although it might take some time for me to get there.

FYI Under the Canadian Protection of Personal Information and Electronic
Documents Act (PIPEDA), "a cemetery headstone and any information on it are
considered to be in the public domain. Therefore, information obtained from these
sources are considered as "open" information which may be released. This is true
regardless of whether or not the people mentioned are living or dead or how long
they have been dead."

RE: Waneta Viola Letoria Dimock photo
Thank you for your work...I means so much to me to see that folks are taking the time to document the history of those that went before us. I can't get out too much do do any graving and I really do light up when there is a photo and/or obit for an individual. I think it adds so much to a family history. Thank you again and the clippings are part of the charm of that photo. My 2x great grandfather and family's stone was found buried in a field next to the cemetery that he donated the land for during one of the Cholera epidemics. He eldest daughter was only two and he was the local area doctor. The stone obelisk was broken but now at least it lays in the cemetery proper rather than in the field across the road from the cemetery.

Waneta Viola Letoria Dimock photo
Hello. My name is John Sloan (#47407593). I am researching the extended Dimock/Dimock/Dymoke families and their connections with my family history.
I wanted to thank you for posting the Waneta Viola Letoria Dimock stone Find A Grave Memorial# 97836271 for Calvary Catholic Cemetery, Rossland, Kootenay Boundary Regional District, British Columbia, Canada. I used your suggestions and those of Find A Grave to link the photo to my Ancestry tree "Sloan Twigs and Branches. Thank you again. John

Will you please transfer my great great Grandfather's memorials to me. I want to add more to them and I am related to them. I would appreciate having them. I only add Memorials on my relatives.

Thank you for your attention

Their suggestion:
I have linked the two sons to their father, but will wait until an actual burial location is found for their mother Ellen.

Sorry, I hit the wrong button but her ashes are buried beside her husband.

RE: memorial #73417981
Okay. I'll try just once more. Then may I have a straight forward - simple answer?

May I or may I NOT copy your photos to my family tree on Ancestry? Yes or no?

P.S. I'm a very senior lady who once learns how to do "computing" one way, cannot learn a different way to get the same thing done. I didn't mean to infer that your way was more complex...just different than the way I KNOWN how to do it! LOL

So just put a YES copy the photo with credit to you OR put a NO please don't.

RE: memorial #73417981
I'm a senior citizen...can't read the computer junk you sent me. But Thanks.

In other words, I do not have your permission to add those 3 photos to my tree on Ancestry. That still leaves the hole in my tree, sorry to say.

Guess I'll just have to request the stone & cemetery photos be done by someone else. It's kind of a shame that you hold the photos hostage. At least I know my "never met" Grandfather is there.

Thanks, anyway.

In Salmo Cemetery BC, Canada you have post 3 photos I wish to add to my tree. May I have your permission?

I was beginning to praise your photos and your work going "into the bushes" for them (we done that too along with sweeping off red clay in VA and trying our best to get EVERY stone), when I noticed your copyrighting.

'Tho I always give credit to the provider/photographer, I now feel I must ask for permission. May I? please reply on my bio page. Thanks.

I saw the page you added for Mabel (Gregory) Roberts ( 125397360) and was just wondering if you were related to her. I am a distant relative and seeking information on that side of my family tree.
Thank you,
