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 show me that the pages you would like transfered to you are people 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: Re: Jones
Oh, so AGS works quite differently from the free site in B C.
Okay, yes I would appreciate your help.
The relatives I have been unsuccessfully looking for are;
Hilda May Winship 1902-1919.
Husband and wife Wilfred Walton Hoggard 1904-1986
Win(n)ifred Wilson Hoggard 1904-1992.
These next two are buried together at Edmonton Cemetery. I think John might be Wilfred's father, but I do not know who Irene is or her age. John William Hoggard 1878- 1907
Irene Hoggard ?-1925
My biggest mystery is Death Cert info on my Great-Grandmother Catherine Lipsett Smirl 1847-1930, also at Edmonton Cemetery. And who are those two buried with her, William Ferrie Smirl ?- Mar 29, 1914, and Margaret Smirl ?-Apr 4,1911. The three of them share one huge headstone and nobody in the family now knows who they are?
Many, many thanks for your kindness.

Re: Jones
Wow! I cannot thank you enough for finding my great-Uncle Albert in Evergreen Cemetery. I feel like crying. I have searched and searched for him.
Thank you so much for going to all the trouble of researching him.
Can you please send me the Alberta genealogical web-site you used to locate him. I am from the States, but my family history is in Alberta. It would be a great help for me to have that web-site. I have family to search for from Grande Prairie to Manyberries.
Warmest regards, and thanks again!

More relatives
After talking with my Great Aunt and finding a list from a reunion I now know of more of my related relatives. So Edna Rough 71709973 was the daughter of a Lola Summers who's maiden name was Msrler. James Rough is Edna's husband 71709974. Do you have photos of those stones? and may you transfer? I thank you so much I don't know what I would do without someone like you cuz I live in Ontario.

The Marler's
Thank you so much. I love adding onto findagrave as well and am so happy when I can help someone out. I am trying to link all my family since I am now talking to two other Marler's about our family history and trying to add things up. As I was linking those last 3 you sent me I came across Aubrey Marler 71709793 do you have a photo of his stone? and will you transfer him since he is another child to Thomas and Stacia? Thank you so much. and flowers are lovely to watch, I can never seem to keep mine growing...

a Joseph Thomlinson 71710088 is related to me through his wife Thelma Thomlinson (nee Marler) 71710092 If you wouldn't mind transferring them into my name that would be great. If not can you please connect them together as husband and wife and then connect Thelma to her father which was Thomas Marler 71709807 Any photos of Thelma and Joseph markers would be great too (now I'm asking too much sorry)
Thanks so much.

Beechmount Cemetery-2 graves in Edmonton
I want to thank you for allowing me to contribute to the memorial pages of Aircraftman 1st Class Kenneth Frank Lawrence, Sapper Malcolm R. Johnston, and Private Alexander William MacKenzie, all who were laid to rest in this Edmonton cemetery. You are most generous.
