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.

RE: Mountain View Memorial Garden, Calgary - Barrack
Hi, Yvonne
Thank you for your quick response. I'm in Scotland but will try some detective work by email.

Mountain View Memorial Garden, Calgary - Barrack
I was intrigued to come across the above cemetery with some names I think are relevant to my family research, ie Barrack. I wonder if you know if
135683364 Gertrude D Barrack
135683412 William C Barrack
are buried in the same grave. Their dates would fit with what I have. I am looking at William's side of the family from Logie Durno in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
William Lewis Barrack, their son, is also recorded there so am hopeful the above are definitely his parents.
Thank you for your time.

Re: Sunderland
Thank you Bear Hugs for the transfer. Completely unexpected but very much appreciated! I too travel dusty roads with my camera in hand & either my daughter or my husband gets to share these adventures. Only once did my car lock us out at the end of the road on a hot Saturday afternoon with keys, cell phones & water bottles safe on the front seat! Enjoy the journey... Val
