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: 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: McEachern Edit Request
Thanks so much for your reply Jan. Mary McEachern who married Peter McArthur were my husband gg grandparents. I also have a Mary McLellan in the family tree. Mary married Humphrey Barbour.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I know the date Mary died Dec 7 1902 in Acton at her daughters home. But I have no idea when or where Peter McArthur died. I have been searching trying o find the cemetery where they are buried.

Aslaug Twito
I just fulfilled your photo request for Aslaug. I wrote below the photo about the small stone next to it. The stone has no name on it and the dates do not match any memorial on findagrave so I am not sure if it belongs to the Twito family or not. But it appears to be of the same type material. I also posted photos of the following Twito stones I found on the memorials on findagrave. I do not know if they are related to you or not:
