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.

Pioneer Cemetery Whitehorse Hi Rod, you might find some addditional info useful i.r.o. your report in 'Find a Grave' regarding my gt-uncle Otto and gt-aunt Kate Partridge who first lived on a houseboat on Bennett Lake, and after 1910 moved it to the southwest end of Taku Arm of Tagish Lake where they built a complex of buildings and an extensive vegetable and flower garden in a fertile valley. The place was known as Ben-my-Chree. They lived in one of the houses and had a contract with the owners of the Steamship Tutshi out of Carcross to act as hosts to groups of visitors in the summer months until when they passed away at the end of the 1920s. The complex was then run by their friends Ludwig and Lillian Swanson and the steamship continued to bring groups of visitors to Ben-my-Chree until the 1950s. With kind regards, Richard Crowe
RE: pictures of my family in Sligo MO Eliza is Lizzie Nall her husband was Gatewood Nall. Last week I copied a lot of Basil W. Wilson information, as many of the names such as Eliza Jane and others are the same so I am going back over the information. Jefferson (Jeff) Wilson born 1855 and died 1936 is on Missouri Digital heritage death cert data base. I am reviewing what I have the information now. Thank you so much for all your help. I cannot wait to see how we are related. My grandmother would have had all the answers she knew when and why the names changed and who married into who, what name they went by ect. I am going off what she told me and using mosos.gov for the rest. I wish I could remember all she taught me! Lea
RE: pictures of my family in Sligo MO I just sent you a message in your email how the Carty's married into the Nalls and Wilson. Lea. You can view Missouri Digital Heritage Death Certificate data base for most the information I sent you. Lea
RE: Carty families of Missouri Someone who understands. My three time great grandfather was Granville Carty, he married Telitha Huitt. Most Granville's wife as 2 but thanks to Missouri Digital Heritage Death Cert data base I think Telitha is the only wife he had. I will get you the information but he was killed in the old Reynolds county sheriffs office. I think in the 1880's. Also the Reynolds' County Historical Society lost two of their members they passed with two weeks. I have joined the Iron County Historical Society and they are looking for pictures of Veterans and other information for they 160 Anniversay book. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will try to get the forms downloaded so I can email you the information you need to submitted photos and other information for their book I think the end date is Feb 2017. Also there is Sligo days this Saturday form 11 to 4 I know you live a ways away but I am hoping to be there and meet others in the family. Lea And thank you so much.
RE: Carty families of Missouri So you can answer all questions I have? I will email you later. I have some information to give you about Iron County Missouri you may be interested in I have joined their historical society as I have much to learn. I have many family grandparents from that area.
RE: Carty families of Missouri I was able to locate the book John Carty and His 4000 Descendants in another Missouri Library. It is one that I have used over the last 7 years to gather information. I hope to be returning to this library as I have joined the historical society where they hold their meetings and nice to meet you too cousin. My aunt is 99 and her mother was a Jamison, which the Jamison's married into the Carty's and I believe is the last name of the author of the book. Many blessings to you! Lea
