Re: Cemetry Records
- Doesn't have an internet connection as opposed to can't use the library
access to the internet? Depending on what she is looking for, using the
Calgary Public Library's internet connection (at every branch) would be
easier than trying to use the paper information.
see: http://afhs.ab.ca/publications/index.html#cemetery to see if the
information is enough. Otherwise, the AFHS library hours are posted

- From the Project and Queries Committee.The AFHS does have Volunteers who answer questions such as you have asked on a daily basis.. We do this for a small fee. I have checked the AFHS Digital Library Volume I and found 5 people with the surname of Charles (I do not think that any of them are the person mentioned). Since no first name was given so I could not check further.For Cecil's friend and for all the members of Dist-gen who might be interested, I will give out the phone number for the City of Calgary Cemetery office: 221-3660. They will do look-ups for ALL the city owned cemeteries. They will give you the burial date, cemetery, and location in that cemetery. With a little prodding names of others buried in the same plot can be obtained.I would also recommend that Mary Lou visit the Glenbow Museum Archives. I would hope that she will find information on her Father and his contemporaries there.Others news to announce is that people using the services of the Queries Committee can now pay over the internet with use of Paypal.
