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.

Dr William Buchanan
Done Alison. He now has 2 children linked to him & think I have requested linking a 3rd which you manage in same Peachland cemetery. My special interest? One of the sons married a "Cousins" from the Peachland family. Think I also sent change suggestion for maiden name of Dr W's wife Elizabeth. All in all a productive few minutes.

Thanks for your help :)

Makar Lakoduk
Hello Alison, I am Sambo 48959352

Makar Lakoduk is my Great Uncke, my Grandfather Harry Lakoduk's Cousin. Makar moved to Canada with his family when I was very young and living in Max North Dakota. I am trying to get in touch with some of his decedents. It is so sad to lose touch with relatives. Thank you for posting the photos of the stones at St Volodymyr. It gives me a sense of peace knowing where his final resting place is located.
His father is Haveriel and his mother is Feodicia Lakoduk. I will ask to have the relationship added to his memorial.
He was a hard working family man with a great legacy.

RE: duplicate message
Thank you so much Alison. What a pleasure to be able to add photos and stories and keep editing without troubling you each time. Now I can work backwards to add next generation. This family has a park named after them in Peachland BC with opening attended by Premier Bennett and other dignitaries back in the day. Sons had their own ball team in the Okanagan League. Nine brothers who were "Cousins". Blessings to you.

Thank you from someone with sarcoidosis another auto immune.

RE: Florence Always
There is an empty space at the location so it is possible that there just isn't a marker. I don't know if the cemetery can tell you if there is one or not for sure but you could ask them. They also may actually have the exact date of death and internment which they can tell you too.

RE: Canadagenweb
Hi Alison,

I totally agree with your opinion of Cemetery Sites. Why is it the strongest willed people entering the data are usually those that are in error?! Such is life I guess.

Keep your chin up're doing a fantabulous job!!

Gwen :)
