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.

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."

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.

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

RE: Calista and Bill Nahl
I left in the 1950s. I don't recall the Rust name from those days. Follow Calista back to her parents, then the family of her oldest brother & you'll find my Northfield and Waseca family.

RE: Calista and Bill Nahl
Had them up on separate screens and switched incorrectly. :) I'm surprised they didn't edit for that. Thanks.

Calista and Bill Nahl
Did I enter a bad number? I tried to link Calista Melvina Sommers Fletcher Nahl Wigen #101865189 to the William Nahl you just entered, #134161315, and got a rejection notice. Bill was Calista's second husband, married in 1908. Yes, Calista's name is badly written on his death certificate - his birthplace is also incomplete, but probably the best you can do in Find A Grave - the town was Steinhausen in Mecklenberg-Schwerin - which may now be Vorpommern.

RE: William Nahl - Found at Last!
Fantastic! Information from a local funeral home agrees. I'll have a look at the record and forward links & info from his birth record via the edit buttons. Thanks so much for taking on the extra hunt. I hadn't checked that resource for a while.
