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 2015. 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 no longer exist in those cemeteries.

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!

St-Pierre de Broughton & offer of translation
Thank you so much Barb for doing this! My ancestors are from St-Pierre, St-Sylvestre, Thetford Mines, Ste-Marie, St-Elzear, St-Ephrem... and I found your post through Ancestry for Irene Fillion buried in St-Pierre. 2 years ago I visited St-Elzear and St-Marie and took a few pictures. You mentioned Irish ancestors, any from St-Malachie? I was actually planning a trip in that region next summer to photograph graves. If you are looking for assistance in this endeavor I'd love to help you out! contact me at thanks, Sophia Pradal.
Surnames in my maternal family are: Routhier, Fillion, Groleau, Nadeau, Quirion, Lachance and the following who married into the family: Healy, O'Farrell etc...recognize a few good Irish names there LOL ? Also, my mother tongue is French, if I can be of service to anyone looking for a free translation of a grave or records, just email me at It will be my pleasure! Sophia

Sr Willmes

I declined the name edit but corrected the name manually.

I noticed the link I had accepted to add a parent (think it was the mother), is now missing. Do you know what happened? Curious!

RE: Morans
Thank you,

You have given me plenty to work with. Someday you can transfer all the McCourt's. That can wait.

I think the group you joined and the one I joined have similar databases.

Looking forward to finding many of those pictures you posted. Hopefully someday ancestry com will straighten out their member connect issues and I'll get the alerts again when someone posts new information.

Thanks again,

Margaret Murtaugh Barylski

I thought there was a picture on that page and I drop in the area picture. I must have been dreaming.

Howard Monument
Although Ellen is buried in Lot 669 and there are a few Howards buried there, the only name on the Howard monument is Julia Howard. Three of the sides are blank. There is no stone for Ellen or her husband John.

Babies are hard. Normal if there in a plot they in the father's parents plot. Less in my family.

RE: Stickney photos
the cemetery records had Marie listed under James name and only as Hattie. That's why they were saying she wasn't there.
