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.

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.

I'm also willing to provide BMD certificate copies from the Nelson Municipal Library, although it may take days or weeks for me to get there. Their death certificates are available up to 1988, although the Royal BC Museum has posted many from 1946-1992 online.

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."

RE: Donald Reid-Salmo BC #73419467
I think you are being very unreasonable, are you just trying to make points by adding memorials for individuals that you have no relationship to?
This notion of adding links seems to create problems and I don't intend to get into that.
I don't know how one deletes what you call 'dupes' and it appears you are placing me in that category, however I'm not going to start calling names, that doesn't accomplish anything.
Perhaps I will just have to enter duplicates but that is not the preferable course of action and it shouldn't have to be.

RE: Donald Reid-Salmo BC #73419467
Please do not link to entries I have made as Donald Reid had five brothers and four sisters, all my uncles and Aunts. I have entered most of them. I don't think I will do any links, I prefer to enter the information as you can see I have done with the Reid's and I do so with all of my relatives.

RE: Henry Semple-111221150
Your welcome, thanks for updating my requests, even though my heart's desire (talked about it enough to my wife) was to manage his memorial in behalf of and to the memory of my father and his great grandfather and share his memorial with you that created it. I already manage my father's & grandfather's memorial. I didn't get the opportunity to share about this memorial with my father, to my regret, as this was a special interest to him. This is my fist sponsor since nearly 3 years of joining but felt it was very important to the honor of my family name & lineage. I'm disappointed that I don't see a photo of his grave site to share with my family & grandchildren, but did place a request. Wonder if I need to offer to pay someone because of distance and time? Thanks again for setting up his memorial, James Henry "Jim" Semple, Jr. # 47523168 at email:

RE: McCutcheons in Summerland
You're welcome!

I made the same mistake and had to move a few memorial pages when I learned Summerland wasn't the actual name of the cemetery I was trying to find. I also created a new cemetery for the Anglican cemetery that wasn't listed on Find a Grave for Summerland. So there are now 3 of the 4 cemeteries in that area to choose from.

Thank You for Your Reply
Yes, thank you for your reply. Was not seeking apology, but thank you. If there's something in my requests that is not right, please send a reply so I can adjust or fix. My messages were one to request transfer of my great, great grandfather which I was so excited to discover our oversight and eager to update since his great grandson, my dad, died in recent past and wish my Dad could have seen this. I am the first born in our family direct lineage, the only one with the same name included. The other 2 messages were to make immediate changes of correction while eagerly waiting for your reply. Based on my majority of recent experiences, which is less than 72 hrs response time, I wasn't sure if there might be a lost or misconnection with the creator of his memorial. You'll have to forgive my eagerness & misunderstanding, I apologize. I requested transfer of my relative(s) to make the multiple changes in behalf of my own family as to not put on, what may be considered, too many messages to another person that may be unrelated and have a lot of management responsibilities. I only manage my related family. It's not unusual for me to make many changes for wording, corrections, changes & updates. I've had no trouble getting transfers like this before, so I was going by those experiences. I only wanted to be of help in behalf of my family, only direct line through my Dad and to honor my loved ones as you do for all. Appreciate you setting up their memorials. Again, you may email me directly if you like at
My goodness, I received three messages from you timestamped Monday night 31 Mar 2014, 74 hours ago. If that's being non-responsive, I apologize.

Having been burned too many times recently, I no longer make out-of-guidelines transfers. I am always willing to make links and replace my bio with a better one. I do not link to dupes, nor to burials unknown.
