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.

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."

RE: Victoria Latka Chubra #132152437
Hi ; Yes, that was me that made that guess of Edna being Victoria and I put in on my family tree. Did you look at the census ? Victoria's sister Nellie is on there too. As well as a Mary and Caroline, except the Caroline is too old to be her younger sister, and Caroline was actually enumerated that year still with her parents. I am thinking that the Caroline might be a cousin of Victoria's, but then there is also a possibility that Edna might be a cousin of Nellie's and not Victoria, as I have guessed. by the way, Peter Skitsko who wrote a book about the family trees of the Latka, and Skitsko families also thought my guess was probably right, but there doesn't seem to be any real evidence to back it up. Wish I could find out for sure. Darcy

RE: John Thomas Wilson #107127586
Sorry to hear about your husband. I don't recall what you are talking about. Did I ask for you to get me an obit? If so, don't bother. It isn't that important.

RE: Victoria Latka Chubra #132152437
Hi : I had kind of lost my train of thought on this and had to go back to my original message to you to figure out things. Although you didn't give an answer, I am assuming that you are not a relative of Victoria Chubra ? But would you happen to know if her middle name might be Edna ? If I could verify that, one way or another, that would be great. ok, you said that you would not transfer a file, but I can send you a bio that you might add to the page ? Did I get that correct ? And you might add a photo of the grave marker itself ? Thanks, Darcy

Charles William Detloff Carlsson
I was so happy to find your photo of Charles headstone! His wife Johanna Wilhelmina was a cousin of my greatgreat grandfather. I found out a couple of years ago that she emigrated to USA, and got married to Charles in Chicago. I had no idea they ended up in Canada...I have no idea if they had any children, Johanna Wilhelmina survived her husband with so many years. It would be nice to know a little bit more about them, and their life.

Victoria Latka Chubra
Hi : I was wondering if you are related to Victoria Latka Chubra ? This was my grandfather's sister on my mother's side ( her maiden name was Latka ) If you wouldn't mind could you transfer the file to me so that I might take care of it and add a bio ? Thanks, Darcy Starrs
