Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am located in Alberta, Canada. Family research is a passion of mine, and since most of my family came from Norway and the U.S. allot of it is done online. Although I mostly specialize in Norwegian research, which I have gotten very good at, I also do alot of research in the Eastern States.

I very much like helping others find info and taking pictures of graves, so if I am near I would love to help. I also travel lots so will also fill requests if in an area.

Any photo's that I add to memorials you are more than welcome to save or use in your family trees.

RE: Ellis and Pennington, Red Deer Cemetery
Well this is a mystery :). Yes, please, if you have access to burial records, that would be great. The transcripts for both cemeteries have Henry Pennington listed. The Innisfail transcripts have a note that Henry was "re-interred". It's odd that the birth year/age are so different on the two markers?

Anton Blomer
Thanks for locating Anton's burial site. It made me sad think that it is unmarked. :-(
