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.

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. Please use the edit tab to Suggest A Correction!

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 Millenium Copyright Act, and Ancestry for one has been (promptly!) removing my content when notified.

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."

RE: Victoria Chubra-Fernie BC
Hi Pat : Sounds like an idea to write to the address to find out information, but as I am in no particular hurry for the photo I can wait until someone is able to go look for me. Our family's visit was so long ago that I couldn't say if that is the correct address, or house, but I think I might recognize the shack again if I saw it. I only remember a few details of that visit. First, I have to say that Emma and Mary seemed like really nice ladies ! Secondly, I had never liked canned salmon up to that point but they made the most delicious salmon sandwiches for all of us. and lastly, I remember the shack in the backyard, first the garden, and then the shack at the far end. Interestingly enough, one of my grandpa's first homes on his farm near Smoky Lake, Alberta looked quite similar to the shack on the Chubra residence. It too was very small. Many years Later, when only two of his sons stayed on the farm to continue farming they used this building ( remember that this was their initial home on this piece of land ) as a chicken coop ! ha ha ! Have to look, but I might have a photo of this building. Regards, Darcy

RE: Victoria Chubra-Fernie BC
Hi Pat: Thanks for the explanation. So, the grave stone(s) got worn away ? I have something else to ask you. I think somewhere around the late 1970's my family visited the home of Emma and Mary Chubra ( two of Victoria's daughters ) in Fernie. IN their backyard there was a little building that looked like a garden shed, but apparently was used as a home for a while by my grandpa Andrew Latka and his brother Frank Latka during the time of WWI ? or Maybe WWII. I was wondering if that building is still there ? When my parents died my oldest sister Darlene threw out the only photograph that we had of that shed that was the home of Frank and Andrew Latka at one time. I was wondering if you might be able to find the home of Emma and Mary Chubra ( they are probably not still living ) and see if you can get a photograph of that small building in the backyard,( if it is still there)and pass it on to me ? Thanks, Darcy
