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 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 2016. Please contact me to transfer your ancestors to your management. Given there are more than 18,000 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 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: Transfer requested
Thanks Barb! Yes, actually all the Poirier's of that cemetery in St-Elzear are kin folk of my wife..if not aunts and uncles, than mom's and dad's. So any Poirier, I would love to have the memorial for them.

RE: Mitchell Family
Hello My Friend,

I have returned and provided you with a number of stats on existing family members. I have, also, updated my new email address:

Please update your records.

Also, before my heart issue (I was diagnosed with a heart defect known as Wolff's, Parkinson's, White Syndrome, and Linda used her training to save me from an early grave). After rehab I am back.

Yes, I can very easily provide you with images you need. Just let me know.

Take care,

RE: Transfer requested St-Pierre-Baptiste, I found a cemetery that was not on and created it myself. I have several photos that I will be adding to that cemetery, but did not take all of them. But at least its a start.

RE: Transfer requested
:) I was on vacation when I sent the request! Haha. Just was there in St-Elzear, Ste-Marie, and St-Pierre-Baptiste.....all locations where my wife's family line is from. I couldn't find a head stone for various Poirier's at the St-Elzear-de-Linière cemetery. Seems like the headstones either didn't exist or were lost of destroyed by time......unless there is another cemetery than the main one located next to the church there at 672 PRINCIPALE. I have placed requests for photo's of headstones, but I gather it is unlikely that they are found. My wife and I couldn't find a stone earlier than 1911 or so.

Find A Grave Memorial# 169032232

If I may suggest a tiny correction :

Regarding Mary Helen "Ellen" Doonan (Corrigan) Sheedy memorial # 169032232, she was added in the wrong cemetery. You listed her memorial in the Saint Chrysostome Cemetery Saint Chrysostome Montérégie Region Québec, Canada.

That is the wrong location, as she should be added in the following cemetery instead :

Saint-Jean Chrysostome Levis Chaudiere-Appalaches Region Quebec, Canada

Thank you kindly for making the change for the memorial of Mary Helen "Ellen" Doonan. Just to let you know, we are working the same lines : Doonan, Corrigan and Sheedy's

Thank you for being a Find@Grave contributor!!

RE: Delage Maguire
You're welcome. Yes I will update Merlon's memorial as well. It just takes a bit for my phone to update when I'm out there so I wait until I get home to sync everyone up. :)
