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 hebottomlpful 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 sources column, click on the <+add> button, then choose from the dropdown. Paste the URL into the box and add a link name. Click on the button; once you do that, the link name 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.

I Ima, thanks very much for taking the time and interest to share the newspaper clipping about James Glover's death and the attempted surgery to save him. I knew he was injured in a train crash but had no idea of the efforts to save him. Your time and effort is mucha appreciated, Keith

RE: Photos and Transcriptions-Enderby BC

Just wondering your information to indicate that Amelia Decker Bogert is buried in Enderby Cliffside Cemetery--just by assumption from the death registration? I contacted folks at Enderby City Hall and they could not find her name in the official list of interments there.

The makuk name is from hungary on our side. I wonder if the makuks in Canada are related. Anyone know?

I made some changes in his mother's and father's memorials and hope they are correct. Thanks as always for your help.

Glad you liked it. After a few years of frustration I decided humour was better than a heart attack.

Am glad the deletion option is gone when making a transfer. Used to drive me crazy when I transferred a memorial and suddenly it disappeared and a brand new entry was made. Little did the recipient know that admin could restore it.
Talk about a memorial being risen from the dead. Like the song, the cat came back.

Nor did I make up the excuses for dupes...all have been sent at one time or another.. some are very creative.

This is very interesting site. Not long ago I spotted a memorial for Tom the Turkey. The bird had a sense of foreboding in his eye.
Pet memorials are allowed and it opens up a whole new world. I have an anonymous chicken in the freezer and I am sure I could find some way of eulogizing it. After all it died doing a service for humanity. Chuck the chicken.
I better stop while I'm ahead. :)

Sorry got the last name wrong. Was Cranbrook in Bc. East Kootenay?

re Kenneth Mcconnell
Hi Ima
I have the old transcripts and age is 68 but that is likely a mistake as their are a few errors in this transcript. There is no stone for him in this cemetery. It's a very old cemetery.
I'll change the age in the bio and add the obit and attribute it to you as contributor.

Thanks for your work in getting the obit and advising me of the correct age. Never would have known where he died had it not been for your finding the info.

I do not know where Benjamin and Hannah Babbitt are buried. I looked up their death certificates to see if they gave a clue but they are early certificates and don't list a burial site. I checked for any records that might be misspelled and didn't come up with anything. Sorry. It is possible they are buried at St. John's but there are no records.
