I have been an avid genealogist since 1995. Through family documents and the evolution of the internet I have been fortunate enough to connect with other family members and share information. I find genealogy an interesting way to learn about the time in which my ancestors lived, what they did for a living, where they lived, and who they lived with.
PLEASE READ: I am a *volunteer* transcriber of death records. There may be slight human error but I try to have the memorials that I care for and send edits to as accurate as possible. I believe that information on the memorials should be sourced and so I try to do so. If you see any errors on the memorials that I maintain, kindly let me know. I generally list any discrepancies of information in the memorial notes. I WOULD APPRECIATE THAT PEOPLE STOP SENDING RUDE COMMENTS.
Some of the people that I have memorials for are family members while the vast majority are from the transcribing of death records from the BC Archives (http://search-collections.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/Genealogy). Of course, the information is only as good as the source and the informant will have answered to the best of their knowledge. I am simply replicating this information unless further documentation shows otherwise.
The purpose of my volunteering on FAG is to connect memorials with their family members. If you are related to any of the people whose memorial I am responsible for, I would love to hear from you. I will happily transfer a memorial of someone related to you (and not to me). Please just ask! (Please include the memorial number(s) in the message as I manage A LOT of memorials.)
NOTE: In an attempt to keep FAG accurate, please do not send parental links that do not match the information on the memorial page. I do acknowledge that death records do contain errors but I will not change memorial information unless provided with other sources. ALSO: If you provide a bio with no other documented source, your name and member number will be added as the SOURCE for others to contact for further information. Do not submit data if you do not wish to be contacted.
If you contact me, please set your preferences to receive messages and/or emails. It is frustrating not to have a means to ask further questions.
