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.

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: Lewis Drake (again)
I have rotated, edited etc them too and look good before I upload but once they are uploaded they turn. They look good on my screen before hand and are saved on my computer and yet not once they are uploaded into find a grave.

RE: Lewis Drake (again)
It automatically turns all photos that are taken lengthwise. Otherwise they are too far away with all the extra along the edges so individuals can copy them to their files and then turn them .....not sure if there is another way to deal with long photos.

RE: Lewis Drake
Yes I guess the person who made the new one didn't realize that it was misfiled and started the new one. It was an interesting search trying to find him but now is correct - thanks

RE: Michael Pisapio
sounds good.....both names were on his death certificate too. Kind of different that A. Pisapio M. Scally is on the headstone - almost like two different people. Wonder what the A stands for?

RE: Lewis Drake
We found him. He was listed under his middle name. The groundskeeper gave me a hand and had to contact city hall. We had a copy of his death certificate and a copy of the request for the headstone (Military) and they used those dates to look up based on when he was buried. Missed filed all these years but they are going to correct it in the listing at the cemetery. He was listed under Govenor - Lewis G Drake.

RE: Mount Herbert Cemetery
Hi Pat:

I feel your frustration regarding Mount Herbert Cemetery. I have been looking online for anything else concerning this cemetery and community and I don't see a history anywhere.

Because it's an old cemetery, I am thinking it was originally the Mount Herbert Pioneer Cemetery. And, because it was United Church it was probably changed to Mount Herbert United Pioneer Cemetery over the years. I don't know when it got changed to the new name, Mount Herbert Memorial Cemetery, which is noted on the sign. I do know that Mount Herbert United Church no longer exists and they have amalgamated with Trinity United Church in Charlottetown.

I did change the name of the cemetery on BG to Mount Herbert Memorial Cemetery, so that part is corrected.

I will try to locate someone in Mount Herbert who may have some information. I'm not sure who yet, but the Mutch family is quite well known there.

I will let you know whether or not I get some information so the corrections can be made.

Happy Graving, Lynn

I see that Find A Grave has merged the 2 memorials into one. Thank you for doing that.

RE: Matrona Robinson
That's very strange, I was looking for Nelson in the listing but could not find it in any of the locations where I thought it should be so just left it blank. Perhaps it saved my searches? Sorry for the confusion
