We really should have been loading photos all this time we’ve been out playing and taking photos. But hey… Winters coming right? It has to slow down sometime… Really… It does.

Confirmed Mary Eva Adelaide McKenna is in Riverside Cemetery in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Section 48, but oddly no plot. Added her to FindAGrave, might see about a photo request.

Can’t find an Obit for Roscoe Miller Sr. Thought it would be easier than this. Also thought he’d pop up in the Baptist Ministry Registry more, or at all… Not as much information on this man as their should be. Time to do more digging… And we don’t even have real dates for Stella, his second wife. Really, there’s just a lot of small details missing from these pictures.

Found Captain Benjamin McDiarmaid’s grave in France on FindAGrave, forwarded it to Jake because we’ve had no luck finding him or the cemetery before – Maybe because we were looking in Germany verses France!

Huge issues with continuing the Carthy branch in Arnprior, Ontario any further. I figured out that Ellen Carthy was the mother from Ireland, no idea on the Father’s name yet, but she was the one who died in 1920, not Ellen Dillon Carthy. Possibly ___ Carthy’s brother living with the family, the name was Path Carthy. Have them on one census in 1881, and that’s it! Beyond that – just graves… We have Ellen Dillon and John Carthy’s stone and a Leo A Carthy who we can’t place yet. I’m going to set Kev on it all once our ‘Northern Computer Issues’ are figured out.

We added a pile of photos from King City Cemetery – Random shots – To FindAGrave, including quite a few photos of the Ireland family, who Jake liked and therefore took lots of photos of.
We also added LOTS of family members to their cemeteries in there, and to our own site, and organized like busy little worker bees.

Having issues with an Infant Berry grave in California… They can’t confirm burial where we expected it. We’re going back to the drawing board on that one.

Jake figured out how to add new pretty flower photos in the memorial section on FindAGrave. Now I want to go redo all our memorials with pretty flowers 🙂 Can’t we hear Julie’s joy over that idea?
But pretty flowers Jules! Think of how pretty it would look!
I think we’re having a day in Bracebridge this weekend. We need to get the gps doing it’s thing and go from there. Once we get computers doing what they should be up North there’s a pile of other things we’ll be able to get done.

I’m going to post this and go get back at it before dinner… Mmm Mucho Burrito. Mmmm!
I still haven’t put up last weeks photos too, really, I’m a slacker. Alright… Work, food… Work… Yeehaw.

Always one for making things pretty, Jenn is our resident artist. Métis, British Home Child Descendant, family historian and genealogist, she is always looking into some new branch of research and encourages historical preservation and education.
