Bio and Links
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!

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.

RE: Louisianna Ailward #100769389
I would be honoured to manage Louisiana's memorial. I noticed that you also put my grandfather Isaac Asa Petch on Find a Grave, & was wondering if I could manage his memorial as well? The only reason I hadn't put him on myself is because I wasn't sure what Cemetery in Oshawa he was buried in. I live in Manitoba so do all my research by internet. Thanks Rosie

Transfer Request to Ashley Bett (#47655872)
Hello Ima BC Graver,
I would like to request 4 transfers. I understand that you don't do "out of guidelines transfers" and I'm not exactly sure what the guidelines are, but the Find A Grave FAQ I found said that all you need is my Find A Grave number. Is that right?
The transfers I would like to request are:
-Wesley Frederick Stringer (Memorial No. 125397461)
-Rose Stringer Deadmarsh (Memorial No. 125323399) and her sons,
-Donald Deadmarsh (Memorial No. 126858672) and
-Allan Ray Deadmarsh (Memorial No. 148243928)
all of Fruitvale Memorial Cemetery, Fruitvale, BC

Rose is my two times great aunt through her brother Wesley Frederick Stringer (Memorial No. 125397461), my great grandfather.

If there's anything else you need, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for taking such good care of them,
Ashley Bett

Dear Ima,
My name is Lynette Sholes Baker. Ed Ihde is a cousin in my mothers generation. His wife is Josephine. As a genealogist and find a graver, I love to connect with distant relatives! Are you a relative or do you know one in your area?

I have added some edits to his site.

I am hoping you can connect me with a Historial Society in your area to gleen any information about them.
Thank you for any information you can help me with.

Just an update for you. I put a marker on this grave a couple of years ago. If you are interested in updating this grave and want to add a photo of the stone. He was my great aunt's second husband. Thank you for doing the Find-A-Grave documentations. Nanc Scholl

RE: Celima Pelletier #147089827
Hi Pat:

Getting an internet connection is always an adventure.

I am disappointed that I would not be able to manage this memorial. I shall work on an appropriate bio for her.

I'll ask again, are you related to her?

Hi Pat:

Would you be willing to transfer her memorial to me?
