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.

"Any contributor can upload an appropriate photo to any memorial regardless of who manages the page. No permission from the memorial manager is needed. However, if there is already a photo of the headstone, do not add a second similar photo unless the original is of poor quality and the new photo is dramatically better. Please note that it is not appropriate to delete a page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created just because you don't like a photo that someone else has added. If the photo is an appropriate addition to the memorial, it will be allowed to remain."

Memorial 143281984
I was wondering if the above memorial for Florence Gertrude Emma Curtis is where she is buried? Or was that where she was cremated and buried else? Thank you.

Charles Howard-Gibbon
Cecilie DeLisle Swanson Parke
I am the principal family history researcher for the Howard-Gibbon family, which includes the Schreiber and Swanson families.

You posted the "Find-A-Grave" entry for Cecilie.

I was unable to contact Cecilie prior to her passing. She had portraits of our common ancestor Edward Howard Howard-Gibbon and/or his children. If you can help me contact either of her living children Brian and Linda, I would greatly appreciate the assistance

RE: Welcome to Find A Grave, Shirley!
Thank you so much for your help. I've contacted the cemetery but sadly, there isn't a marker on my fathers grave and I have to prove my identity before I can purchase one. It's a long process but very important to me.

Thank you again,

Shirley Lawless

RE: Lachlan Fredrick
Apparently his ashes were scattered on the family farm in Willowdale, Pictou County, Nova Scotia. Thanks for getting me hooked on findagrave!
