Bio

I came across FindAGrave while searching for a local, forgotten cemetery and quickly became hooked helping to preserve history through photography. I'm happy to try to fulfill photo requests.

Although I've "cemetery-sleuthed" in numerous cemeteries in southern New Brunswick, the first of my two largest projects has been to record all of the gravesites in the Forest Hill Cemetery. Most were photographed in 2021 and they're gradually being uploaded.

My second largest project is to record all gravesites in the 44 cemeteries located within the restricted CFB Gagetown Range. I've recorded all stones in a dozen of these cemeteries to date and I hope to have those pics uploaded sometime in 2022.

I also have many pics taken in the Hermitage Cemetery (F'ton) and one section of the Our Lady of Calvary (Dieppe, NB) that haven't been uploaded yet.

Having spent a career in law enforcement, I also contribute to a similar data base maintained by the RCMP in Ottawa. If you come across the gravesite of an RCMP member or civilian employee - wherever you find it - snap a pic and I welcome hearing from you. As well, if you are currently managing an RCMP member's page, please consider transferring it to me.

I also welcome hearing from you if you know of any forgotten, unmaintained, or private cemeteries in New Brunswick, especially any that have not yet been uploaded to FindAGrave. I've taken great pleasure in helping to restore four such cemeteries to date.

If a name on a headstone has been added to the data base to establish their relationship to others who have passed, and there's reason to believe the individual may still be alive, it is not my practice to upload a photo of their gravesite to their page, as I appreciate that this may be upsetting to some.

I strive to ensure that all information uploaded is accurate, but typo and factual errors can and will occur. For example, birth years can differ by a year or so when comparing what is inscribed on a person's stone to what is indicated in provincial archives records. If a typo or link error is mine, simply let me know and I'll be happy to correct it.

Photos: I try to upload only the best possible photos I can, but Mother Nature doesn't always provide the most ideal lighting conditions on a given day. If you have a photo that is of better quality than one I've uploaded, please go ahead and upload it. I won't be offended! I'll even delete mine if it's of inferior quality.

You are welcome to use any gravesite photos I've taken for your purposes and although photo credit is appreciated, I won't insist on it.
