Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got interested in family tree research in 1997 at a Carty family reunion in Alberta, Canada. It was a smallish turnout, only about 400 people.. I have always had difficulty making sense of all the names and faces encountered at the reunions, who is whose child, etc. etc. On the way home from the reunion I decided to do something about it. I've been working on the tree ever since, and have found not only do I really enjoy putting pictures to faces and faces to pictures in my immediate family, I really enjoy exploring the ancestral tree too!

I live in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. Since I have found Find A Grave to be so incredibly useful in my own tree research I have created memorials for Grey Mountain Cemetery, Whitehorse, Yukon and Pioneer Cemetery, Whitehorse, Yukon as a way to contribute. Only Grey Mountain Cemetery is active, and I will happily take a picture for anyone for this cemetery in the future. I am very interested in transferring management to family members for memorials that are not my family as well.

Often when I take pictures of gravestones I will have to resize the file to meet the maximum allowed on Find A Grave. There are also times where I will take multiple photos, for context or whatever, but only post one. If a photo I've posted is of your relative and you want them please feel free to contact me by email and I'll give you original-size and any additional photos.

Hugh Bernard Ashton Birch - memorial
Hi Rod: thank you for posting my relative Hugh in Pioneer Cemetery, Yukon. I have just posted a correction for him and I wonder if you would mind tsf. him to my findagrave acct. #47659026 so that I may link him with his wife and the rest of his relatives. Much appreciated for all your hard work and time dedicated to this great site. Marianne

I wonder if you will be removing your record #168011328 if you are going to be maintaining the record that I created #150751781.

Thank you
Gail Allen

Ok done. As you've added the photos, maybe there are details there that can be added to the memorials. So am happy to turn them over to you.
