Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you have a better picture than I do, feel free to add it and I will delete mine. Also, if you have any photographs that you would like to add, or any corrections to be made, I welcome them! Even though the transcripts that I have been adding have been in Canada, I live in California so can't help take any pictures or visit these locations. I will gladly do transfers, unless it is someone that I am closely related to.

I have added some 1990 transcripts for Coningsby Cem in Erin Twp., Wellington County, Ontario to FAG. Some of the older headstones are badly crumbled and can no longer be read, so not everyone that is buried there could be added.

I have added an old PARTIAL transcript for Dixon's Union Cemetery, Chinguacousy Township, Peel County, Ontario. Everything that I have has been added.

Sept. 2012 - I have a partial transcript for Batteau (sometimes spelled Batteaux) Hill Cemetery, Simcoe County, Ontario that I have added (about 200 names). Someone else may be adding more people to this cemetery at a later time.

April 2013 - I have added transcripts for St. Andrew's Cemetery, Watson's Corner, Lanark County, Ontario. I have noticed a lot of mistakes in this transcript--a husband is 100 years older than his wife, the person is on the index but I can't find a headstone, or they have a headstone but are not on the index, etc.

May 2013 - I have added transcripts for St. Mary's Cemetery, Collingwood, Simcoe County, Ontario. I don't have anyone from my lines buried there, and don't really know anything about this particular cemetery.

June 2013 - I added transcripts for Zion Cemetery, Amabel Twp, Bruce County, Ontario. There were lots of mistakes in these transcripts so please let me know about any needed changes.

June 2014 - Many thanks to R. Baufeldt for taking over 100 headstone pictures at Dixon's Union Cemetery in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. I added the photographs (and memorial pages when needed).

RE: Doris Eldred
I am not sure as to transferring to me. I Just started with this Find a grave yesterday and I am not sure what happens. Doris is a descendant on my Husband's side. I just enjoy looking for the graves of his relatives. I am from the UK and my relatives are all deceased before I could get a hold on my history there.
My e-mail is if you just want to contact me there.

RE: Koehn Picture
No that's fine. I just wondered if you knew him or of him. I am married to his son.

Hi Jan,
How do you know Donald Koehn and where did you get his headshot you added to his memorial?

Hi Jan

Well spotted. Yes, it was a typo. She is indeed a Penman.

RE: Laverne Bartraw
Thanks for doing the edit! I just learned this morning of Laverne & his family being my husband's cousins. It was a line I could never locate until early this morning.
I'm fine without transfers as they are only cousin, if you don't mind my giving edit suggestions as I learn more. Thanks so much!

RE: James Graham Hood
Thanks! I just saw that you're managing almost 4,000 memorials on Find-a-Grave. I don't know how you can do it!

Excellent, interesting, and informative obit for JG Hood!

RE: McEachern Edit Request
I believe it best to leave it as is for now..... will do more research to confirm my thoughts.
Thanks again Jan
