Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired office worker and live in Brandon Manitoba and genealogy has been my main hobby (addiction) for many years. It all started by wandering our local cemetery and noticing so many old headstones - so I started taking photos of them - this led me to "find a grave" and I have entered many of our older stones. This led to another old cemetery in the area (burials prior to 1925), and then out to the smaller towns around Brandon and to many areas of the world where my ancestors had lived. They came from Northern Ireland, England and Scotland.
My family tree is extensive, but my main lines are Montgomery, Barton, Rixon, Bothwell and Nicholson.

Walter Bert Boldridge
Hi, I previously requested a correction re remarks pertaining to this grave beside Minnie who is the mother and not the wife. Walter Bartram Boldridge Sr died in 1933 and is buried in Section 026, C, Plot 019 because he was a veteran. I created a memorial with his own headstone. Please correct the inference to spouse as the little marker belongs to her son. Minnie was my mother's maternal aunt. Regards, Carole Hudon.

RE: Sunderland & Mary Champion
Thanks Janet and greetings from across the pond in UK, nice to meet a distant relation from my paternal line! Yes it was a chance connection found on on that led me to them - I am descended via Sutherland Henry Champion & his second wife Lydia Riches.

Don't know much about their parents or grandparents and have yet to find any sources other than the findagrave memorial you added so was thrilled to find it!

I haven't tried contacting the member who is maintaining the memorial as yet, will be interesting to see if there are other memorials and sources to bring all the information in line!

I can see by your profile that you have been very busy and productive in adding so many photos and memorials - I don't get out much nowadays so rely on finding sources online and appreciate all the work you have put into keeping the memories of our ancestors alive!
