Bio and Links
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 - www.canlyme.com and www.albertalyme.org

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.

Sophie Toronchuk
Hi Alison,
I wonder if you have the correct date for Sophie Toronchuk's birth. The 1921 census has her birth date as 1899 rather than 1889.

Bassano Union Cemetery
Me again Alison. By any chance would you happen to have the Headstone Photo of Pvt. Barbara Sarah Rennie at the Bassano Union Cemetery. It is possibly a Veterans Stone.

Also a group of people have created a site on Face Book (Find A Grave Canada). Its a closed site and they are looking for new members if you are interested. You will need a Face Book account. Wayne

RE: Edna Sherman
Thanks Alison and also for catching the mistake. No, no relation, I'm trying to get the list of over 60 Canadian Women Veterans who lost their lives while on active duty serving in the two Wars and that are buried in Canada. Thanks again, Wayne

RE: O'Brien
Hi Alison. You mentioned before that you could do look ups in the Alberta burial registry. Would you be able to find the following family for me?
Mary Ellen O'Brien - married to a Dennis Bryan
Mary Ellen was born Apr. 2, 1885 in Peterborough, Ontario. Dennis Bryan was born in Ontario about 1889 but that is all I have on him.
Mary Ellen and her husband Dennis died in Edmonton,Alberta but I do not know the dates of their death.
Mary Ellen had 2 sisters who lived in Edmonton and never married.
Martha O'Brien born Sept. 2, 1889 in Peterborough, Ontario and died after 1965 in Edmonton.
Loretta (also known as Laura)O'Brien. Born Dec. 25, 1891 in Peterborough, Ontario. I think her death was after 1965 in Edmonton, Alberta as well.
Appreciate anything you can find. Thanks so much.
Leslie

RE: as promised
Yes it was really good of her, she was happy that the photo, in the same way you take the gravestone photos, had been useful and appreciated. She also sent me two really useful links to historical books that are viewable online which included family history's and talked about the Lamberts in two locations, this William Lambert in Mortlach, and his son William in Parkbeg. They were two things I never would have come across, they really interesting to look at and give you much history about the area. She also sent me an obituary for this William Lambert that appeared in a Moose Jaw paper.

RE: as promised
Hi Alison, well I finally got round to putting the two photos I got from Wendy Gray Moose Jaw SGS on Find A Grave. They can tell me off if they want, but I have email confirmation from Wendy that I can use them and credit Moose Jaw SGS, she actually took these photos.
