RE: Transfers
Hi Elaine, thanks for creating the memorials, the transfers and clarification. Pretty sure I haven't yet requested all of my relatives that you may have created memorials for (my dad was of full Doukhobor heritage on both his mother and father's sides mainly from B.L.) so I pretty sure I'll be in touch again. Btw, I figured out why it was reflecting half siblings. It's because a couple of the siblings weren't yet linked to their father only with their mother. I've fixed this. Regards,Lesley

RE: Theodore Miazga
He does have a death date. The unintended duplicate was removed. While I'm happy to transfer relatives, I won't be transferring the entire cemetery to you, as I stay on top of any edits or additions to be added. There has never been an instance where an edit took me more than 4 days, even though findagrave gives you 30 days to do edits. In the future, please send edits (even mentions of unintended duplciates) by using the edit tab on the individual memorials so that links to the correct memorials are automatically included.

Thank you.

Misspellings in Woodlawn cemetery database
Hi Elaine:

I received your messages regarding some misspellings in the database maintained by Woodlawn Cemetery in Saskatoon. I am happy to correct these when a headstone confirms the wrong spelling. As for contacting Woodlawn to have them correct their database, please feel free to do that yourself.

Hi Elaine,
I have added pictures to Anton & Juliana Carlson's grave postings. She was my father's sister. Thank you for all the work that you are doing.

The old French name is Bottineau. I was looking for Bottineau and almost missed it until I looked closer.

RE: Lukowichs and Ostrowskis
Elaine, my grandfather is Frank Ostrowski Filko might be a relation but I am not sure just yet.

I live in America so I use but feel free to email me at I should have access to since I havethe world membership. Sometimes I can get in, sometimes it kicks me out.

Frank was married to Anna also called Annie.

They were married October 13, 1914 at Fishcreek. Would it be possible to get a copy of the marriage record? And last name was Lukowicz or Lukowich. I noticed that her family tend to use the Ukrainian spelling more than the Polish spelling.

Even though I am my mother's daughter Saskatchewan will not give me her birth certificate. Especially as I am an American. is there any way you could make a copy? I know the records are not released yet (hasn't been 100 years since her birth) but I thought maybe there would be at a record in the newspaper of the time did they do that?

Thank you again for all the help!

RE: Lukowichs and Ostrowskis
Elaine, I am sorry for the late reply. My mother was born in Krydor, in 1924. Her brothers and sisters were born between 1917 and 1933. I was wondering if there were any old timers, or perhaps members of your own family who would have memories of the Ostrowski family that you could share with me. Her family lived there until 1936-1939 when my grandmother's eldest daughter Berniece ran away after her father tried to arrange a marriage for her. At that point the family split up, with the father staying on the farm and the mother leaving with two kids, and eventually settle in Hodgeville.

With regard to help, what I would like is a nice image of the land that my grandfather owned. I believe his first 40 acres was purchased in 1916 but my memory is not working that well at the moment. I am packing to go to a cousin's reunion in Toronto this Saturday and leave tomorrow in the early AM hours. I do have the paperwork for his two land patents but will have to dig for the plot numbers. Do you think that would be possible? I'd like to find the maps to some other family members as well.

I return Monday afternoon.

Thanks for any help you can give me,

Lukowichs and Ostrowskis

I see you are the maintainer of the website for Anne Lukowich, wife to Frank Lukowich. Frank is my 1st cousin 1x removed. On your page you state you lived in Redberry. My mother was born in Redberry. Did you know the Ostrowski family? Frank and Annie were the parents, and they had 10 children but only eight survived. My mother was Ludwika, also known as Lillian. I am her daughter.

If you have any remembrances of the family I would love to hear or read about them.

Thank you,

Robin Hastings, daughter to Lillian Ostrowski Barrett
