Bio and Links
Bio Photo I continue to find ancestors around the world...thanks to other Contributors who devote countless hours adding invaluable records, traveling, photographing and posting photos on Find a Grave.

It's been wonderful to be able to 'pay-back' what so many others have done before me while honouring those that have passed on.

Find a Grave Edit System:
Please consider using the 'Edit' tab on the record to request changes to:
Name, Birth/Death Dates, Birth/Death locations, Plot or GPS & Relationships links for parents/spouse or to Suggest a Correction (SAC) (this helps to ensure accuracy and makes it very easy for both Parties) by selecting the correct memorial record.

If you are family and would like to have the memorial record transferred to your care or deleted-please send your request via the 'edit' suggest a correction link.

Here's a great link to Find a Grave Cemeteries in Canada
(you can search by surname across all of Canada or see all the cemeteries for each Province):

I'll try to track down all the duplicates after I'm done with my list of headstones to be translated, and I'll inform all parties involved.

Anytime!

I would count on the international community, but it looks like there is almost nothing on findagrave from Hungary, other than larger cities' cemeteries. That doesn't stop me from helping out with Alberta though, if I can. :)

If you ever see anything that looks Hungarian, you can message me anytime! And I'm still not done with St. Paddy's, just took a break :)

You're welcome! They take me very little effort, and I'm glad to help. I love genealogy and cemeteries, so interesting to think about those people's lives and stories. Sadly, most of my ancestors are probably in a cemetery that is not photographed and it's not possible for me to do it. Wish I did it when I had the chance.

Poor lad with the horses!

You're most welcome! I selected out the ones I can translate, so there are many more on the way!

RE: Saint Patrick's Cemetery, Lethbridge, AB
Thank you for the welcome, I love Canada a lot!

I'm very happy to help! A lot of these Hungarians who moved to Canada in the late 1800s were farmers and country folks who were not highly educated, which is the reason why there are many misspellings and grammatical errors on the Hungarian-language headstone inscriptions. This would make the use of translator programs very difficult in case of some of these headstones. That's why I thought I could help with it... usually, speaking my language is not a real advantage in the world today, but now it's pretty useful!

Saint Patrick's Cemetery, Lethbridge, AB
Hi Linda! I moved from Hungary to Canada a few months ago, and I've been to Saint Patrick's Cemetery a couple of times now. There are many gravestones with Hungarian text on them in that cemetery. I've seen that you have photographed and created memorials for many of those graves (maybe all?), and you requested help with that, so I am at your service! Would you like me to just go through all the memorials and see which ones I can translate?

Johanas Anderson
Are those Johanes Anderson's the same? They have different dates of death, one is Jan 16/1950, the other is June 23/1920.

Vincent Tingley
Linda, would there be an error in the death date of Vincent's dad's death date, 1903, because some of his children seem to have been born after his death.

Vincent Tingley is buried in the Coriano Ridge Cemetery in Italy

Stephen Amos Crosby and "Vida"

Vida (with no last name and grave stone near Stephen Amos Crosby) may actually be his granddaughter...Stephen and his wife Emma Emmons had two children while they lived in Kenosha, WI. His son Herbert Crosby had a daughter Vida with his wife Emma Crosby and they are buried in separate Alberta cemeteries. I am the great-great-granddaughter of Stephen's second child, Henrietta Crosby Lucas...she married and then divorced my second great grandfather Floyd Lucas...Floyd and his second wife are buried in Milburn Cemetery, Lake County Illinois...not sure what happened to Henrietta after she divorced Floyd...but I digress...Stephen's mother's maiden name was Lucy St. John and she first married Wm. Crosby and later Ephraim Perkins...she is buried in Kenosha,WI...not sure where William is buried or the year of his death...would also love to know where Stephen's wife Emma Emmons Crosby is buried...I believe she died before 1900 because Stephen lived with his son Herbert as a widower both in Nobles County Minnesota and later in Alberta...okay...probably TMI...but still think Vida may be his grand daughter...A.L.Lucas
