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!

Wisconsin death docs
Were not required by law until 1907. And, the Catholic churches kept their own records and often they did not notify the civil offices. Or, the get misfiled, mispelled, lost.

RE: Theresa McGee Dunn in St Patricks
I already had added it to her memorial page. There is very little that I didn't post, except the hour of death. The item was very brief in the newspaper. I found it online, old newspaper archives. I do not have a clipping.

I saw that you had requested a photo of a head stone for Greenacres Memorial Park, Ferndale, Whatcom, Washington, USA. I noticed that they have this message posted on the look up page....

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Prefer photo requests to be emailed to them. Their email is: greenacres@farewelltributes.com

You may want to re do your request if you have not received it yet

RE: browns and mcgees
You're welcome. Was at Calvary again today and found some more McGees with out memorials and/or photos. If you check back in on that cemetery's listings for McGee around the end of the weekend and find that I have added any of "your," let me know and I'll be glad to transfer to you. Cemetery records also list a few more that I ran out of time for today.

RE: Margaret Leona Dupree
The photo indicates that the death year is 1931. The font is the same as the numbers for Margaret McGain. I posted the correct close up for Margaret Leona. I also noticed that beside the last name spelling errors for Beverly and Donald, Donald has duplicate memorials under both spellings. Beverly's death year should be 1994 not as shown on Find A Grave. If you want the picts, email me and I'll send them to you
