Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired office worker and live in Brandon Manitoba and genealogy has been my main hobby (addiction) for many years. It all started by wandering our local cemetery and noticing so many old headstones - so I started taking photos of them - this led me to "find a grave" and I have entered many of our older stones. This led to another old cemetery in the area (burials prior to 1925), and then out to the smaller towns around Brandon and to many areas of the world where my ancestors had lived. They came from Northern Ireland, England and Scotland.
My family tree is extensive, but my main lines are Montgomery, Barton, Rixon, Bothwell and Nicholson.

Grace Short grave
Dear Janet Nicholson,

This is my grandmother who died of meningitis tragically while staying in Winnipeg, arriving in 1912 or 13 from England with my grandfather Samuel Percy and my mother Gwen(then aged 4)who returned to England just before Christmas 1915 after she died. My mother died 18 months ago at 102 and often told us of leaving her mother in hospital(we assume she had just died) and hearing her saying to Percy 'take Gwen'. I can't find any record of them arriving or leaving as yet, as I don't know the name of the ship or the ports.
Percy died in 1936 so I never knew him. This record came up as a complete surprise. Maybe one day I will come and find the place. Is there only the one memorial now, or does Grace have a stone?

RE: Brandon Mental Hospital Cemetery
Thanks! I've got the North site on Find A Grave already:

It could use a cemetery photo or two, though.

Helena Rose Kirbyson
Could you please transfer Helena Rose Kirbyson's memorial to me so that I could add information I have. I have been researching my husband's family and she is a great-aunt. I would like to link her to the rest of her family.

Launa Nelson
George Henry Foreman
Hello, my name is Launa Foreman-Nelson, I am a descendant of George Henry Foreman. I came across this web page and see that you take photos of the grave stones. My father has been trying to compile a family tree and is having a hard time trying to find info on our family. Could you possibly email me photos you have taken of George Henry's stone. His wife is Sarah Jane "Jennie" Cowan Foreman. Any photos or info you could provide me with would be much appreciated.

Thank you
Launa Nelson
