Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in entering and linking as many of my family members as possible for the use of future generations.

If I post any information or photos all users are free to make a copy of these and re-post them to other websites. The more information made available the better for future generations.

As another find a grave contributor stated:
Who would hold hostage - under the pretense of copyright - the photo of a grave stone?

I am particularly interested in preserving the information regarding cemeteries in the Eastern Townships of Quebec such as Ste-Agathe, St-Sylvestre, and St-Jacque-de-Leeds, Inverness, St Pierre, St Patrice, St Severin, St Elzear, and Thetford Mines and St-Jean where many of my ancestors are buried after immigrating from Ireland.

I will finish entering information about burials in those cemeteries up thru 1941 using church records in 2017. Please contact me to transfer your ancestors to your management. Given there are more than 25,000 memorials in these locations I cannot manage them all myself.

In June of 2015 I visited and photographed 4 cemeteries in this area (Ste-Agathe, St-Jacques-de-Leeds, St-Pierre-de-Broughton, and Inverness (St-Athanse). Those photos have been posted. Other stones older than June 2015 may no longer exist in those cemeteries. This may because of the age of the marker or because the cemetery has recycled the grave and tossed the marker.

If you visit a cemetery in this or any other area, take your camera! and photograph as many stones as you can, even if they are not your relatives and post them for others!

RE: St Edouard in Frampton
Barb ,
I did not originate this cemetery. I thought (not 100% certain) that once a cemetery is created, Find A Grave takes over ownership.
I went and looked and there's no 'suggest an edit' link available like there are for memorial pages.
Those are good additions you have, I'd try and find a link to send them to Find A Grave. I'll keep looking and let you know if I find anything.
Bernie
PS. are you transcribing the records from the Drouin collection on Ancestry? Are you fluent in French? I have two sets of ancestors that settled in Frampton before moving to MN. The Drouin collection has been a gold mine for me.

RE: St Edouard church in Lotbiniere

The address of the Saint Edouard church is 2590 Principale Rue, Saint-Edouard-de-Lotbiniere QC G0S 1Y0 The village of Saint Edouard is situated between Sainte Croix and the village of Lotbiniere, PQ It is about 30 miles south east of Quebec city.

The church is not in the village of Lotbiniere. Their church is Saint Louis de Lotbiniere.

I am curious why are you interested in this church? Do you have ancestors in that cemetery?

Hope this clarifies where it is situated.

Rita

Hi Barb,

If you want to read the whole report on the excavation of the old Ste-Marie cemetery (in French) with pictures and inventories (without names) the link is http://www.bv.transports.gouv.qc.ca/mono/1100304.pdf

Sainte-Marie-de-Beauce
Hi Barb, just want to let you know that I have been entering names that were buried in the old cemetery founded in 1748 that used to be beside the church. It closed in 1879 due to overcrowding. There were 6,934 interred there in 1778. Most on top of each other. There was an excavation at the burial site to make way for expansion of the church and a parking lot. There is one memorial on the grounds to honor the deceased under the parking lot. That is where my ancestors ended up. You can read more (in French). I used Google translate. http://www.leslabelle.com/Cimetieres/Documents/SourcePDF_936.pdf Last year I read a very detailed report by Robert Larocque from Laval Univeristy who did the excavation. He did a similar one at St-Frederic. Rick

Emilien Garon
Hi Barb. Emilien Garon that was buried in St-Alphonse in Thetford Mines was actually Joseph Arthur Emilien BARON born 8 Jun 1918 in Thetford Mines to Joseph Baron and Alida Fontaine. He died 3 weeks later 29 Jun 1918. The Drouin record was in error for the burial. Hope this helps. Rick

RE: Error
Hi Barb, I'm trying to add a photo, but it displays sideways. I've tried everything........rotating on my comp before uploading, rotating in my camera before putting it on my comp. There's no option to rotate photo in the site. Any suggestions? Thanks, Rick

RE: Lydia Bickford
I'm not related either - but would love to have Lydia's memorial page since I have Hannibal and two of her children.. Many thanks . I've done so much research on Hannibal and back and forth with the government to get his headstone .. I feel a kinship...Kathy Stroope Veasey (#47009271)
