Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in entering and linking as many of my family members as possible for the use of future generations.

If I post any information or photos all users are free to make a copy of these and re-post them to other websites. The more information made available the better for future generations.

As another find a grave contributor stated:
Who would hold hostage - under the pretense of copyright - the photo of a grave stone?

I am particularly interested in preserving the information regarding cemeteries in the Eastern Townships of Quebec such as Ste-Agathe, St-Sylvestre, and St-Jacque-de-Leeds, Inverness, St Pierre, St Patrice, St Severin, St Elzear, and Thetford Mines where many of my ancestors are buried after immigrating from Ireland.

I will finish entering information about burials in those cemeteries up thru 1941 using church records in 2016. Please contact me to transfer your ancestors to your management. Given there are more than 18,000 memorials in these locations I cannot manage them all myself.

In June of 2015 I visited and photographed 4 cemeteries in this area (Ste-Agathe, St-Jacques-de-Leeds, St-Pierre-de-Broughton, and Inverness (St-Athanse). Those photos have been posted. Other stones older than June 2015 no longer exist in those cemeteries. This may because of the age of the marker or because the cemetery has recycled the grave and tossed the marker.

If you visit a cemetery in this or any other area, take your camera! and photograph as many stones as you can, even if they are not your relatives and post them for others!

RE: Robert B Gordon
Thanks for letting me know. Uploading has been so problematic in the last month. I deleted and uploaded again. Hope it worked this time! Have a good one.

RE: Hi Barb
Barb, the Huard line in St Elzier and St Severin are all connected to my Huard's GF or uncles and a few cousins, So I will take your Huard's in both Cemeteries since I have most of the research already done on them. Also the wife of one of my uncles #145065056, there is about 7 or 8 in all. My Find A Grave # is 47544559 thanks again.

Hi Barb
I would first like to commend you for such an upbeat Bio you wrote. It made my day. I agree with you in as much as it's all about trying to preserve information for future generations. If you wouldn't mind I would love a transfer of management for 146055367, 146116692 and 145723890. I had already put in some edits for these so don't do them and I will update the information as well as linking to their spouses. My Find A Grave # is 47544559. Thank you again for all the work and effort you are putting forth. Blessings Ellie

Additional Information
I do have a question for you but it is about where to find a record. I know one of my ancestors came into the Canadian Islands with the British army shortly before or around the Fenian Raids. I have been told that the records of his arrival are nearly impossible to trace. However his wife came into Canada from Prussia and they were married somewhere in Canada between the Islands and Ontario. They would have been married in the late 1850's early 1860's. I have looked and not found anything in the provincial records but another set of eyes looking is not always a bad idea. It is also possible that they were married by a military Chaplin. What I have found on this family is a Baptism Record in 1862 for their son in a Lutheran church around Montreal, Quebec. There names were Mary Schmitt or Smith and George Ambrose. Do you have any suggestions on where to look for their marriage records? Also one of their grand daughters died in Montreal in 1924, do you have any ideas how I would get her death record? I am not sure what she died of.
