Hello,

I am looking to see if anyone would be able to get a picture of a gravestone for me at the Lakeview Cemetary in Meaford, Ontario.

The reason I am looking for this is I need to confirm a birth date. The person I would need it for may be the "long lost mother" of my mother in law or my wife's grandmother.

If you can help me please reply here and I can contact you.

Thanks,

Marc

Hi,

I've searched the link but the individual passed away in January 2012 so she is not on the website yet.

Since you didn't give a name, try looking for the obit here:

You will have to put in the date of death if you know it otherwise search by date on a daily basis.

Hi Smyttie66,

I have the obituary (for Marie Bernice Pelkie, was born Fowler) from lifenews but the date of birth is not listed on the obituary. I've tried calling the funeral home to see if there was anything they could share but said they were not allowed to provide any information to me.

I've wrote letters to a few people in the obituary but have not heard back yet however I only wrote those letters recently. Also, tried calling and reached one of them but they seemed reluctant to share any information but I blame myself for that because I probably didn't articulate why I was calling all that well as they simply told me I need to do more research which of course is what I am trying to do.

Maiden name, age and where she lived seems to match. The DOB would likely confirm everything. Of course, IF this turns out to be her, it then opens up the adventure of finding the potential half-brother of my mother in law. Which I hope my letters that I sent will open that door.

Sorry for the long story!!

Marc
