Update 26 Feb 2017: Internet is slow and flaky, although at least I have it sometimes. Edit and response times still depend on how often and for how long I get into town. Your patience is appreciated!

22 May 2017: I'm still rather slow on updates because of having to drive into town for internet (I've had so much coffee these past months my green eyes have turned brown - JK), but we've been told we should be connected by mid-June.

This is my way of honouring the dead who might otherwise be forgotten. It's always a thrill to be contacted by researchers who appreciate finding their missing family members. Where possible plot information is included to help family and friends locate their loved one. Marker or monument photos show what the grave looks like today, especially helpful for those people who are unable to visit in person. Sadly, sometimes the photos document vandalism.

Now that Ancestry allows copying of photos from Find A Grave to Ancestry trees, I can no longer object to cross-posting between the two sites. You may NOT copy and paste the photo or content to any other site. This includes screenshots.

Due to my photos and bios being lifted and posted to other websites without permission and/or attribution, I have been forced to add a copyright notice to all of my photos. I may have missed a few, but consider them all copyrighted. When I find them on other sites, I absolutely do file a take-down notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

I no longer make out-of-guidelines transfers. As always, I am more than willing to make links and replace my bio with a better one. I do not link to dupes, nor to burials unknown. And please use the edit tab to Suggest A Correction!

The Royal BC Museum has posted many BC Archives BMD certificates online. has also has many BMD certificates. If the one you need is not on either website, I am willing to check the microfilms at the Nelson Municipal Library for you, although it might take some time for me to get there.

Jessie Hepper 1892- 1993
Hi- I write a private blog for my husband's siblings. Jessie was my husband's great great aunt. May I share this photo with them? Of course, citing you as the photographer.

William Edgar
Thank you for your repeated attempts to find William Edgar's grave and making the date correction on his bio.With no record of family with him in Canada it may be there simply wasn't anyone to put a marker. Thank you so much for your attempts, it does mean a lot. Dennis McMurray

Creston Pioneer Cemetary
wondering about the remaining 34% of this cemetary, can I help finish it? which ones have been done etc?

Marie Leary
She is not the daughter of Thomas Martin Letcher.
She is the Daughter of George Albert Letcher & Effie Delilah Letcher .. this is a link to the 1901 census that shows her with her proper family and siblings

Thank you for correcting this error

Think we could have duplicate here
but I think maybe the one in Osoyoos is perhaps memorialized on a shared headstone with her husband. Just a guess.

Winnifred May Robison (1910 - 1932) was the first wife of Stanley Robison, not a daughter. Her maiden name was Waugh. Stanley & Dorothy named their first daughter Winnifred May.

Percy G Ruttan Mem # 148173755
I am confused by your note on this memorial as it states he was removed to Enderby 31 Aug 1942. He didn't die until 1952. According to his Death Cert at BC Archives Reg # 1952-09-008563, he was removed on 31 Aug 1952 from Kamlooops where he died and buried in Enderby Cemetery.
