Bio and Links
Bio Photo Each time I create a memorial I delight in thinking that it may someday provide valuable information to a genealogist or comfort to a loved one.

Transfers - Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial, send a "Suggest any other correction" message including your "ID number", I'm more than happy to transfer memorials as per FAG rules which are your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. If your relationship to the deceased is not listed, please consider adding the memorial to one of your virtual cemeteries, and use the edit functions to add additional info to the memorial I created.

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.

If you add a headstone photo to a memorial that is SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER than mine (FAG rules), please let me know so I can delete mine. FAG is a collaborative effort and each memorial should be a tribute to the memory of the deceased, not the ego of the contributor. Note: FAG advises "close-ups of portions of the headstone are not necessary if the information is clearly visible in the main photo"

Volunteer contributors spend countless hours creating memorials after visiting cemeteries, photographing headstones and obtaining burial information. I am sure everyone would like to know their efforts are appreciated. I know I do.

A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added.

RE: Transfers
Thank you Yvonne. Fred & Minnie were my mother-in-law's cousins and a descendant of Johannes Baber whose family I'm researching. (This also included their daughter Lorraine and her husband George Usherwood whose memorial you have also transferred to me.) Thanks again.

RE: Hungarian translations
You're most welcome, Yvonne! Of course you may contact me anytime if you suspect the text in Hungarian. If nothing else, I might find out what language it is.

You can still expect some more for St. Patrick's from me, I'm not completely done yet.

Actually, I might update my bio to reflect what I can help with :)

Oh my, I didn't realize Linda was not the only one owning the St. Patrick's Lethbridge graves. You're most welcome!

June Baker - Mountain View Cemetery
I have been trying to find my Aunt's resting spot and I believe I have found it with the posting you did. You did mention her grave was not marked but you supplied a picture showing where she is located. Would she be in front of the stone marked Schoening?

Also have you been back to that cemetery recently? Is there a stone there now?

Thank you for your help.

I've processed the edits and I have transferred those 3 Stacey memorials to you.

RE: Stacey &vanstone photos
I've got all the Staceys done now (except Louise).

I created the following 3, let me know if you want the rights transferred over for any of them:

Let me know once you hear about Louise, and I see you have a new entry for Glynes - I'll keep a look out next time we go out, let me know if you find out what section she is in - I can't say I remember seeing the marker.

All the best! :)
