RE: Nova Scotia
Hi Ian,
I think you will be pleased with all the photos we got for you at Black Brook Cemetery in Cape Breton. It took 4 of us and we had a pleasant afternoon! Two of the stones had folks from Oist, Scotland, in the Hebrides.
We found 2 of the 3 you had asked for. We did not find Ronald.
My husband will contact you via email to work out how to get the photos to you.
Thanks for an enjoyable project. Carol

Ocean View Requests
I am willing to do photo requests at Ocean View if you can find out where the people are buried. Requests of this nature must be done by relatives.

Use the following to contact them:

RE: thanks for the help, again
Thank you so much for your very kind words. Have found obituary notices for some of the MacAulay's in Queens Park, and have transcribed them onto their bio's.

RE: William MacCaulay
You are quite welcome. It was quite the coincidence to run into the same worker. He said often the area under the burial site can sink as the tree grows. Usually the roots will hold up the marker but not always. Glad I could follow up on that and I also learned something today.

RE: Thank you
My pleasure Ian. It was frustrating that we could not work out where John and Isaac were buried, but I figured that at least a picture of where they ought to be might provide some clues - or not, if there's no connection with the Robson family.

I have a couple of maps of the graves if you are interested (possible to print off at the cemetery) one of which shows the location of the Robson grave and another which shows the location of the Macaulay grave right next to it. The photo I sent basically shows the Robson plot takes up both those spaces. So if there's no connection with the Robson family, looks like it's a screw up in the records - unfortunate.
cheers, Barb

Well they dug him up. lol. Found him today and talked to the worker who did it. He was down quite a ways.

RE: Alexander & Jean C. MacAuley
Did you notice the spelling of Alexander and Jean's last name is MacAuley?

I noticed that you have a couple of requests at Mountain View in Calgary for photos of Kolby MacAulay died 2001 and Malcolm MacAulay 1955-2014. I will be happy to take the photos for you but can you contact Mountain View at 403-272-9824 to find the locations of Kolby and Malcolm in the various Gardens? They are more willing to provide the locations to family members as opposed to photo volunteers. I look forward to your reply.

RE: Macauleys
Hi Ian,
I am not even remotely related to this family but am always willing to look for people in cemeteries in this area.

Hi Ian,

Road trip was great and I have added all the names I found in Fisherton Cemetery to Find A Grave. I am trying to find someone who can help me get the incorrect info on BillionGraves removed. They have 84 wrong entries in that cemetery alone. Right aerial photo of the cemetery but wrong name !

RE: Nova Scotia
Hi Ian, We will do our best to photograph these folks, and any others we see in Black Brooke Cemetery. We go 2nd week of Oct. Will be in touch, Carol

RE: Thank You

You certainly had to wait a long time for someone to fill your request, I am glad that you enjoy the photo. It is one of the most hilly cemeteries that I have been in.

RE: Thank you
You're welcome. Glad I can help out. Theres one more to come, William. It appears William has sunk into the ground around the base of a tree, the grounds keepers are going to have a go at finding his marker and re-setting it.

RE: Thank you


my Road Trip might just resolve this for everyone.

I have photographed ALL of the markers in St Joachim's and also have access to the Alberta Genealogical Society cemetery records so I am 99.999% sure that they are NOT in St Joachim's. I guess time will tell


Added by Alison on Sep 22, 2016 4:58 PM

RE: Thank you
Hi Ian,

I have figured out what is wrong

someone on Billions of graves wrote St Joachim's cemetery BUT added the map for Fisherton Cemetery

I have NO idea how to correct this. Might have to take a road trip while the weather is nice. ie. before snow flies!


Added by Alison on Sep 22, 2016 2:56 PM

RE: Thank you
Hi Ian
Not a problem.
Anything I might be able to help with please let me know

Christy Crocker
My name is Christy Crocker maiden name (Macauley). Earl George Macauley is my grandfather. It says that Shirley was his sister but I am having a hard time finding any information on her. I have found years but no dates. I am new to family history and was wondering if you could help me? Thank you so much.

Very Respectfully,
Christy (Macauley) Crocker

Added by Christy Crocker on Sep 11, 2016 5:13 PM

You're welcome!
No luck with Aulay except a memorial in the Church- will add it tomorrow (for me)
The local historian I contacted sent the information- will send it onto your email address.

RE: Macaulay- Rothley Church
Hello again
Just wondering why you're confused about Rothley?
I've made enquires about the graves mentioned before; just waiting now.
If there's anything else I can do please let me know- happy to help with this.
