Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Vancouver, BC, Canada and have lived in Greater Vancouver my entire life. I started researching my ancestors in July, 2012 which lead me to this website. I have family members interred in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver and Forest Lawn Cemetery in Burnaby and visit both regularly. However, I can drive to anywhere in the Fraser Valley for photo requests.

RE: Kirkyard
Hi Patti
I saw you had added graves to the Kirkyard so it's now beginning to look quite a respectable size! I have some I want to add but will need to consult my cousins about details.
I asked one of my cousins if she knew anything about your Clark who lived in Longforgan and mentioned the Melvilles as well. She came up with this:
'There was a Muriel Melville in my class at the Harris. She lived in Invergowrie. I was quite friendly with her. She married a James Lumsden but they are both dead now. If I remember correctly there were a Ronald, Sydney Muriel and another sister who was married to a fireman she was older than Muriel. I was born in 1933 so Muriel would fit in.' Helen
Was Muriel your first cousin once removed? I'm hopeless at working out relationships which is a bit of a handicap for a very amateur family historian.
My Clarks came to Longforgan in 1920 when soldiers were rehomed after the war. Granny and Grandad had ten children so there were a lot of Clarks around. I don't think your Clark can be related though. It looks as if they had no children? Jean may have left the village quite soon after John Henry's death in which case my cousins would have been too young to have heard about them. It would be interesting to know if the two Clark couples knew each other. It's a smallish village so it seems very likely.
I only have one cousin left in Longforgan now and a first cousin once removed but I spent a lot of time there when I was growing up, and after, and still go out quite frequently. Longforgan is part of me. We scattered my Mum and Dad's ashes on the Clark grave.
I wrote a family history for my Clarks which included a section on their time in Longforgan. I'll have a look at it to see if there is anything about the village you might find interesting. (I've got to track it down first).
Speak to you soon,

RE: Kirkyard
Hi again
Have just noticed the two entries which are not mine. This might make it harder to change the name. You say your maternal grandmother was from Invergowrie. Just curious but there is a graveyard at Invergowrie.
PS You may already have these but do you want any photographs?

RE: Kirkyard
Hi Patti
Good to hear from you. I live in Dundee only a few miles from Longforgan and Invergowrie. I think Churchyard is probably the more modern term but I like to think I'm keeping the older names going when I use Kirkyard - I was probably having a particularly Scottish day at the time. There is only the one graveyard in Longforgan so we're speaking about the same one. It would be easy at this stage for me to change the name for my relatives. Have you started a Longforgan Churchyard site yet? What do you think? Churchyard or Kirkyard? I'm easy with either but it makes sense to have just the one.
PS Glad I've added to your Scottish vocabulary

RE: Jackson photos
Thank you so much again! You're so sweet!

I don't know who Beatrice is, but now I'm curious. Feel free to make a memorial for her, but no need to transfer. That's awesome about the flowers, too, more people need to be like you!

No sorry I do not have the plot info.
All I have is that she existed through the BC Vital Stats: Reg. Number:1951-09-007368
Microfilm #:B13209 (GSU # 2032701)

Don't put in too much effort, this will eventually get some more information. I am only running a few years behind:-)

Thank you,
Ian Macaulay
