Please do not add copyrighted information, photos that you did not take, photos of obituaries or obituaries which include names of surviving family members to any of the pages I have created. Find a Grave will be notified and will be asked to remove the item(s).Please be respectful to families and allow them to have the funeral before you post information about the deceased.

Living in Canada I DO NOT receive emails letting me know that people have submitted a photo request to a cemetery I have visited/ photographed, so PLEASE message me directly so that I may fulfill your request. I do have photos of most all of the markers that I have transcribed. So please ask.

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

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 or edit information please use the EDIT tab at the top right of the person's page, check the drop down menu for options. DO NOT USE THE PUBLIC MESSAGE BOARD TO MAKE THESE REQUESTS.

Please remember to include the memorial page number and your membership number when asking for information about an entry I have made.It makes it sooooo much easier for me to find the person you are asking about.

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 related to you.

However, as FaGer Scott wrote :- If there is any particular entry that I have made that is very important to you, related or not, if you sponsor their page I will transfer it to you ASAP. This helps Findagrave and shows me that this entry truly is important to you and that you are not simply trying to 'collect' all you can find of a particular surname.

Should you find that I have inadvertently duplicated an entry or photo please let me know, I will remedy the situation as soon as possible.

Alison thank you so much. (#164074483 & #164074482 - John & Mary Teresa Merrigan). I was just overcome with emotions when I saw you had created their memorials. And like you I also love to help people find their loved ones.
Lyme is just terrible! To make a long story short, my husband knew a lady that had Lyme Disease and it took the medical prof. years to realize what was going on with her. I am so glad that now it is detected earlier and treatment has improved.
Please take care of yourself.

And there is Charlie. He has been a great help to me too. He is currently photographing all the cemeteries in the Yorkshires.
And yes, those Greeks in Edmonton are mostly from what is now called 'Turkey' and had to flee for their lives as they, like the Armenian's, were being massacred for being Christians.

Death of Mrs. Geo. Gunn
Hello Alison,

I just noticed that I have an article about the circumstances of this lady's death, and her sister, on the back side of a clipping for one of my Saskatchewan relatives.

As I know it can be hard sometimes for people to find info, if I was to send you a copy of the clipping and transcribe the article would you like to add the text to the site?

Sorry for the confusion "I" created. A senior moment. I was working from a list of former Mounted Police/CEF and saw your reference on Find A Grave and asked for the picture without checking to see if anyone else had put it on the site I was intending on putting it on. An oops.
