Bio and Links
Bio Photo The words Please and Thank You frequently cause miracles to occur and are much appreciated.

Located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. My camera and I travel to many other places.
I have photos for most all of the memorial pages that I have created BUT I have not uploaded them. So even in the middle of an Albertan winter with snow 2 feet deep I can still add photos to pages I have already created, simply let me know which memorial you are interested in and I will add a photo for you. Bearing in mind that FaG says it takes about 1 minute to upload a photo onto a page I probably will never get all the photos I have added to the correct pages.
I do not receive emails letting me know that people have submitted a photo request close to my home , so PLEASE message me directly so that I may fulfill your request.

If you would like me to remove a memorial please let me know and I shall remove it right away - no questions asked.

Some of the cemeteries we have visited have markers written in languages other than English. I have photos but can not translate the inscriptions. If you think one of your loved ones might be in a cemetery where we have taken pictures but is not listed on Find A Grave, please contact me and I will try to help you.

Having Lyme Disease I need less stress in my life and need "gentle exercise" I find taking photos for Find A Grave gets me the fresh air, and the tranquility I need in the summer months and uploading the information exercises my mind in winter. If you need to know more about Lyme Disease check- and

To request a transfer please use the EDIT button at the top right of the person's page.

Because of the few RUDE people demanding I transfer pages to them, I shall no longer make transfers unless you are polite AND can explain to me how the person is someone closely related to you.

Should you find that I have made a mistake entering information or have inadvertantly duplicated an entry please let me know I will remedy the situation as soon as possible.

RE: Richard & Phyllis Hobbs
Thanks for the tip. I found out that they are not buried in Edmonton but are buried in the Barrhead Field of Honour. Haven't been able to find the plot locations, yet.

Ooops. Meant to say "if you would prefer I NOT use the photo in this way ..."

RE: Find A Grave Memorial #77064272
Hi Alison

Yes I do have the two Find A Grave hints provided by Ancestry but I like to attach the photo to the profile for easier access. I am trying to ensure all my profiles are set-up in a consistent way and I attach headstone photos to the Death record on the timeline.

I always credit as follows "Photo used with permission and courtesy of Alison. Find A Grave Memorial #77064272". That way people are directed to the Find A Grave memorial and can see that you are the photo contributor. (I should mention that all this is moot at the moment as my tree is private and only viewable by me anyway, lol, but if I ever go public, I want to ensure all my permissions are in place.)

If you would prefer I use the photo in this manner, just let me know.

Thanks! :)

Find A Grave Memorial #77064272
Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

#82468777 Vera L. Houston grave
My dear Alison, I cannot properly express my gratitude. Someone asked you to find the grave for Vera L. Houston (it may have been my sister-in-law, Margaret Nicholls). You did find. it and I got the information tonight and downloaded the photos of her gravestone and cemetery location. Vera's second name was Lillian. I have been looking for any information about her for years and no one would say anything. I would so loved to have met her but I would have been 6 when she died. She took the name Houston from the man she left with and he left her with a daughter. I will probably never find this aunt of mine but I will, hopefully, be able to visit my grandmother's resting place. Thanks to you. Can't explain why but this means so much to me. God bless you and keep you.

Cat Photo
I am not so much a cat person (although one is standing on my keyboard right now) as it appears. "My" photo of the cat was taken in the Canada (Kansas) Cemetery when I was taking marker photos. He / She wouldn't let me get close enough to pet him/her but did give a few opportunities for a photo.

Thank you also for your marker photo - I forgot to mention that in my thank you for the transfer. Mr. Galbraith was inducted into the Saddle and Sirloin Club of the International Livestock Exposition, for which I have a virtual cemetery. Take a look at the list of inducted members of the club which are in Find A Grave (
