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.

I do have photos of most all of the markers that I have transcribed. So please ask.
(Include memorial # in 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.

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 - www.canlyme.com and www.albertalyme.org

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.

RE: Fisherton Cemetery
Yes, many of the sons and daughters are there as the list indicates for Fisherton. Many of the extended families are there as well. So many need to be added. Thank you for doing that, I will edit the genealogy as well and see if there is a way to get the online error corrected.

Many thanks,

Gail

RE: Thank you
Don't say that nasty word!! Yes there is definitely some controversy over the burial.
Proof of any kind would be fantastic.

This note from a closer relative says:
Mary lived many years after Daniel and I think lived with her youngest, never married , daughter Annie who lived in Thorsby, not Edmonton where St. Joachim's is. It is also a Catholic cemetery which caused her great grandson to blanch when told. It continues to be a mystery for me. Myst get there I suppose.

Hope you find something,

Ian Macaulay

Cenetery Site
Hi Alison:

Evergreen suggested I do this.

Unable to find the cemetery site for my father, Metro Kost Makowichuk.

On the :find a grave site": there is a person with the same name but the dates and cemetery name are different. So this can' be my father.

Here is his information: The first part is really strange.
Birth: Dec.03/1918
Soda Lake,Ab.
Name: Mike Makowzuk
PofAb: reg # 18-08010056

Marriage: to Mary Matichuk (from Andrew)Ab on Nov 30, 1945 in Hamilton, Ont.

Deceased: June 02, 1979

Burial: Evergreen Memorial Gardens
Edmonton, Ab

Is it possible to add this to the find a grave site?

Thanks, Ted Makowichuk

Thank you so much for this Alison. Our family has wished for them to be together for a long time. I tried very hard not to let my heart overrule my head in this instance. I have made the correction and I have passed this along to her great grandson, my husband. It feels nice not to worry about this for now. I still intend to make that trip and will call the number you suggested. If there were a problem I would let you know.

Again, thank you so much for your help with this mystery.

Good Morning Alison,

I have edited http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=162549669 to reflect the Fisherton information that is currently out there and added a note to reflect the information that has recently been found at St. Joachim Cemetery. I do plan to make a trip to St. Joachim Cemetery in Edmonton, Alberta to verify the on line historical information that I found. Anything is possible I have found. I have been to Fisherton and Donald (Daniel) is there for sure and he has a large marker (he was actually the first person buried there), the plot beside him is there but does not have a large headstone. The St. Joachim marker has both of their names and dates but I know that does not mean that they are both there. Once I have been, I will know better. Perhaps a fresh set of eyes... Should you find out more I would love to know once and for all so that I can remove the note in her record.

Thank you
Thank you for the time and effort put into The Mary Macaulay "Wrong Cemetery" thing. In my family files she is already in the right Cemetery, Fisherton, and I am not sure how the request came to light. Very grateful and apologetic:
