Bio Photo The words Please and Thank You frequently cause miracles to occur and are much appreciated.

Located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. My camera and I travel to many other places.
I have photos for most all of the memorial pages that I have created BUT I have not uploaded them. So even in the middle of an Albertan winter with snow 2 feet deep I can still add photos to pages I have already created, simply let me know which memorial you are interested in and I will add a photo for you. Bearing in mind that FaG says it takes about 1 minute to upload a photo onto a page I probably will never get all the photos I have added to the correct pages.
I do not receive emails letting me know that people have submitted a photo request close to my home , so PLEASE message me directly so that I may fulfill your request.

If you would like me to remove a memorial please let me know and I shall remove it right away - no questions asked.

Some of the cemeteries we have visited have markers written in languages other than English. I have photos but can not translate the inscriptions. If you think one of your loved ones might be in a cemetery where we have taken pictures but is not listed on Find A Grave, please contact me and I will try to help you.

Having Lyme Disease I need less stress in my life and need "gentle exercise" I find taking photos for Find A Grave gets me the fresh air, and the tranquility I need in the summer months and uploading the information exercises my mind in winter. If you need to know more about Lyme Disease check- and

To request a transfer please use the EDIT button at the top right of the person's page.

Because of the few RUDE people demanding I transfer pages to them, I shall no longer make transfers unless you are polite AND can explain to me how the person is someone closely related to you.

Should you find that I have made a mistake entering information or have inadvertantly duplicated an entry please let me know I will remedy the situation as soon as possible.

RE: Moosomin cemetery (Towler family)
Alison, Deeply appreciate the Towler transfers. Thanks, too, for the many photos that you've taken of headstones during your travels. I doubt that I would have thought to check for any of the Towler family over in the Moosomin, Saskatchewan area as most of them lived just over the border in Manson, Manitoba.

Alison, thank you so much for your very quick response. As you can probably tell, I made an error in the Find A Grave memorial number for her father. I sent the number for her younger sister, Margaret who is also on the memorial. I will sent the correct numbers for her Father and Mother. Thank you again for all you do. Neil Thomas

Thank you so much for your support in photographing the headstone for George. Thru it, I am able to locate his wife, Melissa, who is a daughter of my great, great grandfather. Neil Thomas

In the alphabetical search you will see headstone pics when you click on their names. I will be in Moose Jaw this weekend taking pictures. I can take some if you'd like.

RE: St Paul's Cemetery & St Andrew's Cemetery, Wapella
Thanks Allison,

I had to give it a try. The genealogy society has photos of St Andrew's but they are by request and there is a charge. I don't begrudge them that - just wish access was better as it is for St Paul's and for the Wapella town site cemetery. ;)

By the way, I have information on every one of the Scottish immigrant families buried in St Paul's and have built trees for all of them. If your friend's g grandparents came to the Wapella area in 1883 or 1884 I'm very pleased to share. :)

Take good care. Jan

St Paul's Cemetery & St Andrew's Cemetery, Wapella
Hi Allison,

Every time I pop into the St Paul's Find A Grave site I thank my lucky starts that you captured the cemetery in such a fabulous way. Many of the interments are people related to me.

I wondered if you might have captured photos for the Catholic cemetery up the road, St Andrew's. Did you by chance? I drove to Saskatchewan in 2012 & photographed about 1/4 of the St Andrew's Cemetery. I've uploaded all those headstones to my tree, but am now seriously considering starting a Find A Grave virtual graveyard. I doubt I'll ever convince my husband to drive to Saskatchewan again so wondered if you had the photos at hand to fill in what I'm missing once I get started later in the winter.

I know it's a long shot, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to pose the question.

Thanks you very much for all the Find A Grave contributions you've made. :) Jan
