Bio and Links
Bio Photo Each time I create a memorial I delight in thinking that it may someday provide comfort to a loved one or valuable information to a genealogist.

Transfers - Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial, send a "Suggest a Correction" including your "ID number", I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to their RELATIVES.

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.

Thank you to everyone that made finding and documenting all the cemeteries in Forty Mile County possible. Thank you Kathie for making the many dusty gravel roads we travelled together so much fun!! Collaboration is wonderful and makes any project much more enjoyable.

The Alberta Genealogical Society - Lethbridge Branch gave me access to its Mountain View Cemetery records so unmarked graves and grave locations could be added to FindAGrave. AGS (Lethbridge) has a phenomenal amount of info on file including neatly catalogued obituaries - please support them, if possible. Thanks to all AGS members!!

I would like to thank the Vulcan & District Historical Society for giving me access to all of the Vulcan County Cemetery records and the amazing support of my main contact in that group. WOW!!!!

Thank you as well to everyone that made it possible for me to create memorials for burials at Mountain View and Garden View Cemeteries in Calgary.

Volunteers spend countless hours photographing/ creating memorials and appreciate knowing their efforts are appreciated. I know I do.

McClain headstone photos
Thank you so much for taking all the McClain headstone photos in the Alberta cemeteries - they have been very helpful in researching the McClain family. We're very distantly related to this line. Very interesting that this part of the family moved to Alberta.

Confused
Hi Yvonne
You have sent me some info on my grandparents. Fred and Emma Schmelzer.
You have asked me to delete my memorial? I don't understand.
Could you please email me at vljones@xplornet.ca

The graves in Winnifred are Emma and Fred my grandparents.

Have no idea who would have been buried there in 1916/1917

Two sons and one daughter are buried in Taber. Earl, who passed away in Lethbridge and a set of twins (boy and girl) that lived only a short time.

My dad is still living and when he lived in Bow Island he looked after grandma and granpa's graves.

I have not been there for quite some time. But have done a lot of family research.

Hello Yvonne, Thank you for transferring these two memorials to me. Come spring time (no snow) I will go to the cemetery and take photos of their graves.

Thanks so much for all that you do.

RE: Thank-you
Should have read last post first, but you got what I meant. Thanks to you, was long overdue considering how often I have seen "Bear Hugs" when I search.
