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.

If you add a headstone photo to a memorial that is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER than mine (FAG rules), please let me know so I can delete mine. FAG is a collaborative effort and each memorial should be a tribute to the memory of the deceased, not the ego of the contributor. Note: FAG advises "close-ups of portions of the headstone are not necessary if the information is clearly visible in the main photo"

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: Harry Leroy Hanning
You are welcome. Thanks for providing the grave location for Harry Hanning in Eden Brook Memorial Gardens located at Calgary, Alberta. Eden Brook does not give locations to Find a Grave volunteer photographers, so needless to say impossible to locate and photo a grave without such description.

RE: edit requests

that's what happens when I mow the rows after adding random names earlier and there is a minute difference in the spelling, so Find A Grave does not catch the duplication.

RE: edit requests
I do like proof for information But since more often than not I read emails more frequently that I check edits so am not sure what I am supposed to do with border crossing or census records that are sent as a SAC.

Looks like there was a snafu with your request

It is fixed now.
