Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Brandon Manitoba and originally, I started out searching for my ancestors. Then recently, I decided to take photos of all the headstones on our local cemetery - which meant adding all the "residents" in also - this has turned into a full blown obsession and every weekend finds me stomping around the cemetery taking photos of headstones - a wonderful hobby.
My family tree is extensive, but my main lines are Montgomery, Barton, Rixon, and Nicholson.

RE: Joyce Family
Thank you so much Janet for sending me the information and for transferring the records over. I will write to get the photo of the grave. George Frederick Joyce was the head engineer for Brandon on the CP Rail. Other family members may be in this cemetery including the Anderson family. They were all pretty dynamic characters. Thanks again.
Sincerely, Maureen Joyce

Thank you for creating this record. Mary Jane McAnerin (I have submitted a correction) Joyce is my great grandmother. The McAnerin name has often been transcribed incorrectly as it is very rare. She did come from Barnet Greater London.
Her parents were London City Missionaries. The McAnerin children came to Canada through the Home School Program.
Thanks again for your interest in recording these Brandon families.

RE: Gay Smith
Her parents were originally from Manitoba and I believe they lived in Brandon after they were married. They moved to Vancouver in 1948.

I don't really know much more - what I have was found on-line.

Thanks for the transfer Janet! I will try to get her linked to her parents eventually.

Is your permission to use the photo on my tree implied in the transfer?
