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
Marilyn sent me a copy of the request for a headstone - it was military so I will check that section to see if it is there and will show it to the groundskeeper - he has been helping me too

Lewis Drake
Wondering if you have any record of Lewis Drake being buried in Nelson Memorial Park. There is no record on the new listings at the cemetery that just came out yet his death record says he is buried in Nelson. Born Dec 18 1880 in Ontario and died Dec 25th 1934 in Nelson. Buried Dec 29th
Is there another cemetery in Nelson that I am not aware of? Someone requested a photo of his gravesite but no record of where it is....thanks

RE: John Hartley
So according to the family, Peter St. John Hartley is buried at New Denver. So the stone is most likely his.
Apparently Norma is in New Denver but she doesn't have a stone.
The second picture that you posted for John has another stone in the flowers that looks different from Peter's (John's) Do you know who it is.

RE: FAG for John Hartley
I think your idea that it might be Peter St John Hartley is a good one. Unfortunately his death record isn't available yet. I will call Victor's sister tomorrow and see if she knows.
Thank you for forwarding a request to the museum society to have a look.
Thanks for your help

FAG for John Hartley
Grave Memorial# 167011178
I'm trying to transcribe this stone. It looks like there is another name or title before John's name and I can't make out most of the writing below his name. Some is hidden by flowers. I am wondering if you live close enough to this cemetery to be able to go and see if you can read it? Or maybe you have another picture that shows the lettering better. Thanks. I am trying to figure out if he is one of our Hartley's. I have just started researching this line and with the rest of the information I can ask family members if they know who he is. If you come across a stone for Norma Jean Hartley or Norma Eva Jean Hartley 1921 - 1999 maiden name Campbell I'd love to have a picture. The family says that she is buried at New Denver.

my granduncle John A. Currie
Thank you so much for your entry on my granduncle John A. Currie (1869-1901). I might never have found this information any other way. As I have written on his entry: "I have now found my granduncle John. I was always told that my paternal grandmother, Henrietta Currie (1880-1949), his sister, wouldn't allow alcohol in her home because it had led to the death of her older brother, John. I was told he had been a doctor and was married with children and lost it all due to his illness. It was unclear whether he had committed suicide by train or if it had been an accident, but I was told he was decapitated. Everything in this entry matches what I was told. RIP Uncle John"

Warm Regards,
Jane Laberee

Meta was my mother's second cousin. My grandfather was James Craig of Browndod and Cultra Ireland. Meta was the same age as my mother.
