If you have a better picture than I do, feel free to add it and I will delete mine. Also, if you have any photographs that you would like to add, or any corrections to be made, I welcome them! Even though the transcripts that I have been adding have been in Canada, I live in California so can't help take any pictures or visit these locations. I will gladly do transfers, unless it is someone that I am closely related to. As of Fall 2015 I am not going to be as active on this site as I once was. Even though I enjoy genealogy, I have burned out, but am still glad to help whenever I can.

If you have time, say hi to my pets:

Meet Pudgy

Meet Toto

RE: Thomson Edits
Thanks a lot. Jean is my second cousin three times removed through my Alexander line which I'm currently working my way through on Ancestry.

Hi Jan

Thanks for the heads up about the photo. Hope I have got it right now.

As for edits and links I try to do them ASAP so folks can see their family grow.

RE: Hood Memorial Page
Oh sorry....I didn't even look at the photographer...LOL. When I saw your message I assumed it was you.

Hood Baby Daughters

Thanks for the heads up about the stone for these children. I added a second memorial (as appropriate) but left off the twin (in the name) not knowing for sure if they were in fact twins or just two kids who died on the same day.

Would you mind adding your photo to the second memorial I created? The memorial number is 163324682.

Maybe some additional research will yield some info.

RE: Tanner Line
Hi Jan,

I have also requested obits, with no luck.
I contacted the VFW in Devils Lake and asked them if they had a Charles Tanner whose grave was flagged on Memorial Day. They returned my call and said they would check their records, as of now no word. I cannot find where a stone was ordered for his grave. If I could find that maybe we could locate his grave.
If you notice the lot numbers in the cemetery there are three right together, Martin, Mrs. Martin and another Tanner.
Thanks for keeping me in the loop, I will do the same if I get a reply.

I noticed that you left flowers on the Find A Grave website for her. I just posted a picture of the gravestone.

RE: Orr
Hi Jan,

If you wouldn't mind, I think I would like you to transfer the Orr's to me.

I am linking them with their family.

Thank you for your offer.

Kind Regards,
