Bio and Links
19 Dec 2016: Temporarily (I hope!) without internet at new home, so edit and response times will depend on how often and for how long I get into town. Your patience is appreciated!

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.

Now that Ancestry allows copying of photos from Find A Grave to Ancestry trees, I can no longer object to cross-posting between the two sites. You may NOT copy and paste the photo or content to any other site. This includes screenshots.

Due to my photos and bios being lifted and posted to other websites 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 on other sites, I absolutely do file a take-down notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

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. And please use the edit tab to Suggest A Correction!

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.

RE: Celima Pelletier #147089827
Hi Pat:

Getting an internet connection is always an adventure.

I am disappointed that I would not be able to manage this memorial. I shall work on an appropriate bio for her.

I'll ask again, are you related to her?

Would you be willing to transfer her memorial to me?

Can I just say a very big "thank you" for the information and headstone photo you so kindly supplied for Joseph Gibson (d 1917).

Martha FAG #167828170
On about November 20, 2016, you sent me a correction edit for Martha May Stouffer Johnson Baldwin # 167828170 to change her surname to Johnson instead of Baldwin. I did not approve this edit because her Legal Name at death was Baldwin as was on her obituary also. Both names appear on the gravestone.
I'm not sure how but Somehow her surname did get changed to Johnson without my approval.

Rosaria Sacco - #97561874
Pat --

Rosaria's father Antonio Pascuzzo is buried in Westlawn Cemetery with his 2nd wife which is why you didn't find him in the Cranbrook Catholic cemetery.

I've sent you the edit to that effect which means you can delete the record for him in the Catholic cemetery [#97561809].

His daughter Maria Victoria [#94337168] will then have to be attached to his memorial at Westlawn.

I've sent edits for the other Antonio / Santo Pascuzzos and hope they'll be updated soon with their respective *owners* :)

The family were friends of my late mother and all her family for many, many years.

Thanks for your work on this.
You suggested "Krywenko" as the birthplace. I can't find any such place. However I do see that as a last name in Find a Grave. See especially, Alexandra Dykun Krywenko (85903156). The Dykun family is related to me, as are the Barons, but I don't know if or how these two individuals fit together at this point.
