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.

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!

transfer request Mary Ann Rebecca PORTAS
I would like a transfer of Memorial# 94238293 if possible. Mary Ann is descended from my 4x great aunt Dinah.

If you are related in some way please don't transfer.

May I have some Downings?
Me again :-)

Bertha Annie Downing is a daughter of Abigail Maria (Brooks) Crawford. I uploaded a family photo and, of course, have some details to add. I also added a memorial for Jean Downing, whose marker is in your photo of Bertha & Albert Downing's headstone. I used your photo and gave credit in the notes but if you'd like to re-upload it so your name shows instead of mine, feel free. I'll delete the first copy. It's number 162931647

I'd like to take over:
Bertha Annie Downing: 82198254
Alberta Bruce Downing: 82198119

Hope you're well.

Wonderful! Thank you.

Until that day and if you haven't already, see a movie called "Harold & Maude".

So if it is literally "written in stone", that doesn't necessarily make it right? :-) I'll remember that.

Very sorry to hear about the COPD. I once had the tiniest touch of Bronchitis and wouldn't wish that on anyone.

Take care,
