Bio and Links
This is my way of honouring the dead who might otherwise be forgotten. It's always a thrill to be contacted by researchers who appreciate finding their missing family members. Where possible plot information is included to help family and friends locate their loved one. Marker or monument photos show what the grave looks like today, especially helpful for those people who are unable to visit in person. Sadly, sometimes the photos document vandalism.

Lately there have been a few crowd-sourced projects to help clean up the database. Please don't feel picked upon if you get a SAC from me; I've definitely found a few errors of my own before starting in on others. For example, I also had some "No Last Names" and misplaced maiden names that belonged in the last name field. See the naming conventions in the FAQs/Help With Find a Grave, aka Rules!

Having been burned too many times recently, I no longer make out-of-guidelines transfers. As always, I am more than willing to make links and replace my bio with a better one. I do not link to dupes, nor to burials unknown. Please use the edit tab to Suggest A Correction!

Due to my photos being lifted and posted to other websites (Ancestry, for example) without permission and/or attribution, I have been forced to add a copyright notice to all of my photos. I may have missed a few, but consider them all copyrighted. When I find them, I absolutely do file a take-down notice under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, and Ancestry for one has been (promptly!) removing my photos when notified.

You may LINK from your tree to a Find A Grave photo or page, but not copy and paste the photo or content. This includes screenshots.

The Royal BC Museum has posted many BC Archives BMD certificates online. has also has many BMD certificates. If the one you need is not on either website, I am willing to check the microfilms at the Nelson Municipal Library for you, although it might take some time for me to get there.

FYI Under the Canadian Protection of Personal Information and Electronic
Documents Act (PIPEDA), "a cemetery headstone and any information on it are
considered to be in the public domain. Therefore, information obtained from these
sources are considered as "open" information which may be released. This is true
regardless of whether or not the people mentioned are living or dead or how long
they have been dead."

Hi Ima. Could you transfer this memorial to my name, as he is my G Uncle. Happy Digging.

RE: Joseph Schatt-Deer Park BC
Wow, that's a shocker. If you have a photo of the plaque that would be nice, if not that's okay too. Thank you very much for the information. Living in Pennsylvania I never would have known.

Hi Ima, thanks for the effort and all of the wonderful work you've been doing. I'm not surprised you didn't find a marker as both sides of my family were often in the lumber business and likely made any original markers from wood. Thanks again your effort was very much appreciated, Keith

Thanks Irma: As you suggested I deleted my message/flowers because you've incorporated the info into the memorial.

RE: Bricher/Demasuk/Varhol
My grandfather's mother was Parashka (Pearl) Varhol, who married Simon Dado. It appears she was your great-grandfather's sister.

My parents still receive a Christmas card yearly from Pete Varhol, Jr.

I noticed you've added several items for this family. Wondering if you're related in any way. They are distant cousins of mine through the Varhol line. If so, love to make contact.

Going through past emails and found yours nre the dupe.
Thanks for the heads up . I just sent it off for a merge to admin.
