Advertising Revenue - Further Comment

My comments regarding revenue DOES NOT in any way mean the future of CanadianHeadstones.com is of any concern. It is just that being on a modest retirement income, I really do not wish to subsidize it too heavily.

Please do not click on ads for the sake of revenue. However, please notice them and patronize the advertisements of interest.

CanadianHeadstones.com will live forever, if I and my key helpers have anything to say about it!

Advertising Revenue

CanadianHeadstones.com is a very low-budget show which only requires cash for internet services and some minor expenses. No one, and I mean, NO ONE, receives any remuneration for their work or expenses.

While advertisements on a website are somewhat of an annoyance, we do need some income. Adsense provides us with this revenue. However, current revenues are lagging expenses.

Therefore, it is important that you patronize our advertisers as you see fit and let them know - "I saw your ad on CanadianHeadstones.com"

CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE !! 50,000 Records !!

Congratulations to EVERYONE!! We have reached the 50,000 mark in record time!  

In just 10 months, YOU, the volunteers, have helped produce one the most successful genealogy websites in Canada!

It is only 11 months ago when I first envisioned this idea and began planning a possible website for the whole of Canada. I contacted a number of my good genealogy friends as a sounding board and the idea grew from there. I/we had no idea how successful it would become, nor what support we would receive.

All that said, we are heading into the summer months when I suspect the volume of submissions will increase along with the better weather across Canada. Therefore, I implore everyone to keep scouting for new volunteer coordinators as we will need extra help very soon.

Again, thanks again for your support,

Sincerely,
Jim McKane

Coordinator Volunteers Needed

Hello Everyone - CanadianHeadstones.com has been far more successful than originally anticipated! Of course, this is thanks to a wonderful  group of volunteers who have been submitting and approving the photos.

We are quickly closing in on the 50,000 records. All of this has been accomplished in less than ten months! Of course, we expect volumes will increase as the better weather is fast approaching.

In order to handle this increase, we will need several more coordinators to approve submissions. A coordinator simply proofreads the entries and marks them "approved."  It is not difficult. You are not committed for a long-term. If you become unable to continue or overloaded, we will supply relief and assistance.
