Bio and Links
I have been tracing my family for many years and now that I have found Find A Grave, I am trying to link families together from grave to grave. I just love doing this because it seems to bring a closer to the family when they are finally linked together. It is not just a lonely grave lost in a cemetery somewhere. A lot of the reason I do this is so that my children will be able to have a connection with their ancestors. I have a large family, 33 grandchildren and as of this date (June 2015) I have 80 great grandchildren. Who would have ever believed it!

Thompson family
You sent me some edits for Thompsons buried in Nashua, Iowa. I think you said one was your third great grandfather.

If you would enjoy working on their memorials, I am willing to transfer your family to you.

Or I will make your edits if you prefer. Just let me know.

Thank you!
I must thank you wholeheartedly for adding photos and genealogical information for John Brown and Martha Thistle Brown! They are my direct ancestors about 7 to 8 generations back and I've been looking for this information. Sincerely, a grateful granddaughter.

I cannot see the actual death record and will not pay $26 to get a copy. The Huntingdon Gleaner from Huntingdon County Quebec records a marriage to Winnifred Lea on Sept 21, 1925 in Coronation ALBERTA. They are living in BC in 1957 , according to a voters list.
What is your connection to this Forrester family? My husband is a desendent of Janet Forrester and William Henderson.

Keith Forrester Elder
Please share your source for believing this person died as a child in Calgary. I question this fact because in the 1916 census for Alberta, a 15 year old Keith Elder , born in Quebec, was working in Bow River District as a labourer for a John McIntosh and a BC death record for a Keith Forrester Elder, born in Quebec Aug 1901, died in Nanaimo BC on Oct 27, 1967
