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: Edits
Thanks - I don't need the transfers as of yet. A couple of questions though. I haven't been to that cemetery yet.

Do you know if it's fully transcribed? There are a couple of burials that I believe are there but do not have memorials. I know records were not always kept well. Is there a listing?

RE: Coningsby Cemetery
I went through my photos more closely and I was able to locate the stone for that name which do match the dates in your entry. I switched them out :). Don't worry you had it right! There are two Elizabeth Thomson's buried there I believe.

Elizabeth Thomson
Hi Jan,

I uploaded a photo for Elizabeth Thomson at Coningsby Cemetery but I may have the wrong one as her death date is different from the one you listed. It's hard to see dates on my phone's screen until I upload it. Sorry if it is the wrong one! I will see if one of the other Thomson's line up I took about 100 photos at Coningsby today so if it is the wrong one there's a chance I might still have a photo of the right one.
All the best,
Alanna
