|Bio and Links|
I got interested in family tree research in 1997 at a Carty family reunion in Alberta, Canada. It was a smallish turnout, only about 400 people.. I have always had difficulty making sense of all the names and faces encountered at the reunions, who is whose child, etc. etc. On the way home from the reunion I decided to do something about it. I've been working on the tree ever since, and have found not only do I really enjoy putting pictures to faces and faces to pictures in my immediate family, I really enjoy exploring the ancestral tree too!|
I live in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. Since I have found Find A Grave to be so incredibly useful in my own tree research I have created memorials for Grey Mountain Cemetery, Whitehorse, Yukon and Pioneer Cemetery, Whitehorse, Yukon as a way to contribute. Only Grey Mountain Cemetery is active, and I will happily take a picture for anyone for this cemetery in the future. I am very interested in transferring management to family members for memorials that are not my family as well.
Often when I take pictures of gravestones I will have to resize the file to meet the maximum allowed on Find A Grave. There are also times where I will take multiple photos, for context or whatever, but only post one. If a photo I've posted is of your relative and you want them please feel free to contact me by email and I'll give you original-size and any additional photos.

|Cindy||RE: James Hosey Ketcherside|
Yes you have my permission. I noticed what you had on your site about copyright so I added it to mine. I didn't realize you had to give permission. I hope that's alright
Oh, James is my 1st cousin 3 times removed. Susan Anna "Annie" Ketcherside was my great grandmother. I put pictures on here for everyone to use. Why keep it to yourself. I think the more people that have the information the better. That way it isn't lost in time.

|Karen Huerta||RE: Curtis Hawley|
I posted the photos for Curtis. I will try to do a rubbing next time I am out there and see if I can get anything to show up that way. The stone is so smooth that it might not show anything, but I will give it a shot.
|Karen Huerta||Curtis Hawley|
I photographed Hannah Hawley's grave and posted it. I also photographed what I believe to be Curtis Hawley's grave, but the stone is unreadable. The stone is right next to Hannah's. If you would like me to post it I would be happy to even though I can't guarantee it is his stone. I could also forward you the photos if you prefer.
|Monica Johnson||RE: Emery Robert Linn|
Thank you for the correction. Yes, you can transfer them to me. I appreciate it.
|Monica Johnson||Emery Robert Linn|
I am a grand-daughter of Emory Linn. I have the birth certificate and death certificate of Emory so I can give you some better info about my grandfather. His name is spelled Emory. dob: 19 Jan 1906; dod: 15 Mar 1984. I don't know much about Margaret Linn who is on his tomb stone. That was his third wife.

Let me know if you find Clara and if she is buried in the Invermere area. I would be happy to locate her grave for a photo.
|Wanda Weekly||William Herman Russell|
Hi Rod, I was doing some research for the Russell family and I found the headstone for William Herman Russell doesn't match the actual headstone. The stone says it's Richard Russell. Could you check this out and let me know.
I appreciate all the hard work you've been doing. Thanks a lot.

|wendy keillor-badley||Clara Boyle|
Hi Rod, I have not been successful to locate Clara Boyle in the Mountview Cemetery. I even went to the District Office where they keep the records and although the lady searched through them all, she was not able to locate Clara. Sorry about that. Hope that you are able to find her.
On another note, I was surprised to learn that you live in Whitehorse Yukon. I lived there as well for 16 years, moved away in 1999 to BC.
Many good memories.
|Beverly Witmer||RE: Samuel J. Lundy|
I did take the photos and you have my permission
to use them.
|Alison||RE: William Arthur Bullas|
Oh How I wish everyone was as courteous as you are!
Thank you for asking.
You have my permission to add the photo to your family Tree.
