Bio

Am from Ottawa Ontario.
I give my my permission to use my photos for your genealogical purposes as long as they are not used commercially and claimed as your own.
Am willing to transfer my memorials even if you are not directly related and are willing to maintain it. I just post them to help people in their research. Also because I enjoy taking photos. Since it is public information, do not ask me to delete my photos. I see nothing offensive of headstone photos.

I travel a lot for my work. On my way back home, if time permits and if I need a break from the long hours from driving, I try to pass by a cemetery and take a few photos. Beside my other photography project, on my days off, I pack a lunch, travel places that I want to explore more and take photos. Am also in constant search for unmapped cemeteries and those that has barely any memorials. So far I added a few and corrected a few.

What I like about FAG is not only the immense wealth of information for genealogists but also the co-operation between members when a error occurs or for adding extra info.

Discovered FAG many years ago and finally decided to join. Just love it. I try to take the best possible photos and be as accurate as possible. My aim is quality not quantity.

A few of my favourite websites to search for cemeteries:
FAG app.
Canadian Headstones
Canada Genweb.
Google Maps. Especially Satellite view.

For extra info to add for war graves:
Library and Archives Canada: Personnel records of the First World War, Personnel records of the Second World War

When not adding memorials or photos what I like doing is to correct the FAG map. I had a few non existant cemeteries removed, some merged, some cemetery pins put at their proper location. One of my frustrations doing this is that some people, create cemeteries based on obituaries assuming that there is a cemetery at the church where the deceased had his or her funerals.
