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.

You may LINK from your family tree (Ancestry or other) to a Find A Grave photo or page, but you may NOT copy and paste the photo or content. This includes screenshots.

Instructions for Ancestry: Click on the Find A Grave photo or memorial you want, and copy the URL from the address bar. On the profile page of the person, in the bottom right corner, click on the <+web link> button. Paste the URL into the box and add a caption. Click on the button; once you do that, the name of the caption will appear in the Web Links Box for you to quickly access at any time, without violating my copyright.

Due to my photos and bios 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 Millennium Copyright Act, and Ancestry for one has been (promptly!) removing my content when notified.

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.

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."

Thomas Harris at Creston Pioneer Cemetery
Thanks very much for trying to fill this request. I think I know what your photo means but just to make sure ... the grave is unmarked? And the flowers indicate the plot location?

Graham Photos
Irma please check you photos you uploaded for John Graham and Mary Youdale Russell Graham, I believe the wrong photo was attached to the memorial.

Charles Bulger

Thank you very much for checking that cemetery for Charles Bulger - I had not realized he was
in an unmarked grave but it is good to get a
picture of his burial location. Very much appreciated,

Chubra house / shack
Hi : Did you have any luck getting a good photo of the garden shack at the old Chubra home ? I can hardly believe that it is still standing. Was it in the far left back corner of the backyard ? Darcy
