Another Thank You

Gord, one of our hardworking coordinators who has also submitted a large number of photos himself received this note: -

Just a note to say "Thank you" for taking the time to photograph and put online the photo of my grand uncle's headstone from Beechwood. In exploring our family tree David McEwan's story was a sad one. He had been committed to the asylum in Brockville, and in a fit of despair threw himself onto the train tracks before an oncoming locomotive. His wife Lilian bore the burden of being left behind, and I find it poignant that she put at the bottom of the stone "Some Day We Will Understand"
Every stone, another story.
Thanks for making them available to families online.

Family Tree Finds "Cousins"

Sandra posted her family tree on CanadianHeadstones.com. Within a very few days, she received the following email -

Sandra,
    Have we corresponded before?
    I found the above site while Googling Charles Booth. I struggled to find the submitter, but when I saw the Lindsay name, I found I already have your branch in my Blythman tree.
    Your GG Grandmother Kezia Blythman was a sister to Rebecca Blythman.
    It looks like we both have similar data, so not much to exchange. But thought I would say hello just in case.
P.... B.... - Family Historian, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

It seems that they had corresponded several years ago but had lost contact with each other.

CanadianHeadstones.com helps again!

Thank You Note

Eric in British Columbia just received........

I just thought I'd drop you an email to say thank you for contributing to the Canadian headstone site. I've just seen for the first time the headstone of a relative for the first time. He emigrated to Canada from Scotland, and we visited him one marvellous summer.
Thanks again,
Sh....

Isn't it nice to be noticed and thanked for your hard work?

Great work, Eric!
Keep it up,
Jim
