Bio

I am located in Penticton B.C. Canada. Have lived here since 1975, before that was my hometown of Chilliwack B.C. where I grew up. My family originally was from Paisley Ontario and Glasgow Scotland prior to 1855. If you are looking for photos for Lakeview Cemetery in Penticton, I would be happy to try to assist you; however keep in mind that quite a few plots in the Old Section are UN-marked, unfortunately. Also, I have noticed a few folks getting the Penticton Lakeview Cemetery confused with others of similar name in various cities. Before you put in a request for a photo, PLEASE ensure that it is indeed in the Penticton Lakeview Cemetery; I believe there are 46 (yes, forty-six) Lakeview cemeteries in Canada. There is also another cemetery in Penticton, called Saint Saviour's Anglican. If you wish to use one of my photos, please ask permission first. Do not post them on other commercial (for profit) websites, however; personal use only. Also please note: IF YOU ARE FULFILLING ANY OF MY REQUESTS, OR POSTING PHOTOS ON MY PAGES, I APPRECIATE THEM BUT ONLY ACCEPT ONES THAT YOU TOOK PERSONALLY, YOURSELF. NO PHOTOS FROM OTHER WEBSITES, please and thankyou. F.A.G. RULES, ONLY post photos for which YOU hold the copyright (meaning photos you took)!!! SOME F.A.G.'ers ARE MAKING MEMORIAL PAGES FOR FOLKS WHO MAY BE STILL LIVING. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN THIS PRACTICE. AN OBIT, DEATH CERTIFICATE, PHOTO OF A HEADSTONE/MARKER WITH A DEATH DATE OR OFFICIAL LIST STATING THE DEATH IS THE ONLY PROOF THAT IS ACCEPTABLE IN MY OPINION. I DON'T THINK THAT MANY LIVING PEOPLE WOULD APPRECIATE KNOWING THAT SOMEONE HAS PRE-MADE A F.A.G. PAGE FOR THEM.

To those who feel the need to be rude - don't expect a reply.

Someone else has posted this on their profile page and I thought it very good statement (as I, to, take many photos of plots with no markers):

"Please note the site is called Find A Grave and not Find A Headstone, my request photos reflect what I find at the plot."
