Helen, I was back out to the Millet Cemetery today, photographed a bunch more stones and then looked in an area where there are new stones and found the one you wanted. It is set on a concrete runway, so easy to photograph. For may of the older ones we were battling spruce pitch, squirrel's cone piles, bird droppings and worst of all many invasions of both black and red ants. Made for an interesting day! - Gloria

Tugwell info
The Harty, ON cemetery was searched and the neighboring town office consulted. They have no record of Tugwell internment.

Mount Royal Cemetery has 165 acres. The burial plot location must be supplied so a volunteer can go take the photo.

You can get this free information by filling the form here: and in the "Desired Service" field, select "Burial Location (free)" and enter the information.

If the Genealogy page was not helpful then email your request to

The cemetery will email you the location (3-10 working days).

Have the memorial updated with the plot number.

You will have made it possible for the photo to be taken.

RE: Henry Beaubien
Helen, right up against Henry's tombstone on the back side is another flat monument for a Deborah M. VanDyk (1962-2008). I'm not sure if that's perhaps a granddaughter?

Rust Family Markers
Hello Helen,
I tried to get the best pictures I could of these markers. They are a kind of plaster with an imprint of letters. These don't seem to weather very well. Hope you can read them.

Crooker Family at Forest Home Cemetery

Please obtain the burial plot by calling the cemetery at 773-287-0772 or try e-mailing if you cannot talk to someone.

This cemetery DOES NOT help photo volunteers.

Additionally, since there are over 150,000 burials at the cemetery, finding someone's grave without a plot (Section and Lot Number) is nearly impossible.

Currently here are over 100 photo requests, going back to 2006, that are unfulfilled here because the photo requestor has not obtained the burial plot.

Frieske Family
When photographing Fredrich and Lydia's stone this afternoon, I noticed another Frieske right "next door", Fred D (1928-1980) who I assume is their son. I imaged it and am posting it to his memorial. Thank you for allowing me the privilege to record these images for you.

RE: Baby Boy Baker
My mistake! One would think I would be used to Mr. Rewers' handwriting by the time I entered all of Fernie St. Margarets Cemetery. Yes, it does say Hilda. All fixed.
