Bio and Links
Bio Photo I just wanted everyone to know that all the obituaries that I have tried to type in that I have gathered up are being scanned and put in so that the original is there. I hope I am not causing any problems in doing this. I am slowly dissolving all I have onto the internet so that it is much easier to handle. Thank you for your understanding of this project. I am enjoying all the wonderful work that everyone is contributing to the effort of helping people find their ancestors or descendants or any family, friends, etc. I will continue to help where I can, because I love doing this work.

RE: Duncan McLean #147112504
No. I did not mean that I wanted you to delete the memorial you posted for my great grandfather Duncan McLean. I just wondered if you would transfer management over to me. My Find A Grave number is 47419072. Are you related to the McLeans?

Betty, I've accepted the edit to add Freda's parents. Would you please consider deleting the obit that you posted? I already had it in the Bio section and I don't like the looks of adding a newspaper obit to the photo section. I also believe the funeral paperwork belongs more in places like Ancestry or something like that. I don't believe it adds anything additional to the memorial. If you don't care to remove it, it's not that important to me, I'm just asking respectfully.

Thank you for your consideration.

Duncan McLean #147112504
Thank you for Posting Duncan's information in Find-a-grave. I am also a contributor (#47419072) and have created a memorial for his wife Ida Belle Tooke McLean (#150266578) and attached her as Duncan's spouse to your memorial for Duncan. Duncan and Ida are my father's grandparents. I would be happy to manage Duncan's site as well as Ida's if you do not have a particular attachment to him.

Do I understand that you may have an obituary for him? If so, I would appreciate it if you would either post it to his memorial or send it to me at and I will do so.

Thank you so much.

Hi Betty, can you scan in the entire page of the obit showing the name of the newspaper? And send it to me.

Thank you,

Dera Betty,
I am so sorry to be bothering you once again. I have so many questions and can't seem to find answers. Just more questions. I contacted the newspaper twice now in addition to sending them a copy of the obituary you posted. They have told me this is not from their paper and that it isn't even the forum they use. So I just wanted to verify where you said you found the obituary.

Hi Betty,
I recently discovered my sister in law's tombstone and obituary through As recent as July, 20, 2015. I have many questions, as you can imagine. I had been looking for her since 1996. She died in 1994. How did you obtain the information to write her obituary? And her last name was misspelled it is Viertel, as is on her tombstone. I can send you my email address if you want. I wasn't sure if this was a private message or public? Thank you!! I appreciate any info you could give me on Abbie. Looking for answers.
