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.

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.

A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added.

RE: Hutchings

I deleted the request when I realized I could not
find the marker where office said it was.
Later I was working on some other requests for
"Wilson" When I noticed that what I thought was
an other photo of a Wilson marker, that I recognized what it fully was saying.

Should have waited till I had applied all photos I had taken.

At Knox to-day, Snow all gone. Could get around the Cemetery safely.

I came across a picture you took m Find A Grave and was wondering if you minded if I copied it and used in on my family tree on It's Valentine, Stanley and Douglas Parkin.

Thanks for taking the picture!

I believe that you where looking for Eleanor and Ralph Hutchings.
I found their marker just by accident. It is not at the stated burial site. It is with the Wilson family at their plot.
If you still would like it please reinstate the photo request.

re: William J Jones and Dorothy Jones

I would like to know what the source is for the plot numbers for William & Dorothy. When I took photos of my maternal grandfather's and uncle's tombstones I couldn't find any plot no. on the stones. Thank you for providing the information.

Alvin Gaetz gravestone Banff
I run a family and local history website, which is non profit making.
I have a page on my late Uncle Alvin Gaetz and his wife Elizabeth Margaret Gaetz (nee Roberts). She is my mother's sister.
Al was tragically killed in March 1953, when a truck he was driving hit ice and mud, rolled over on Al who had fallen out of the truck. He died of his injuries.

By using search engines I located this fantastic website, and am requesting permission please to use the image of Al's gravestone which is at Banff's cemetery. I live in Mid Wales, UK and am unable to visit Banff to see his grave. If permission is granted, please let me know how you would like the image credited on my webpage.
This is the link to my page

Kind regards

Georgia McGauley #151395341
I visited St. Patrick's Cem. near Stayner yesterday and have added photos to Patrick McGauley's memorial. There is no doubt he is the same person as the one in Collingwood. Particularly since there are three other children of his and Mary Ann Crow buried with him in Stayner I would like to make him Georgia's father. I am declining your edit. Could you please make the Collingwood memorial a cenotaph? Thanks, Don
