An Early First Birthday Gift !!!

Happy Birthday to CanadianHeadstones.com - five days early - and Thanks for the Early Birthday Gift!!

CanadianHeadstones.com was born 1st July 2009. Here we are five days before our birthday and the best gift of all has arrived -

!! 75,000 Indexed Entries !!

Once more, I want to congratulate and thank ALL of our volunteers for their dedication, hard work and support. It has been trying at times, joyfully happy at others. However, we have persevered to come out winners.

We have created the largest website with both photos and transcriptions in Canada!......

.....and the Best is Yet to Come!!

All the Best to Everyone,

Cemetery Entrance, Gate, Landscape Photos & Plot Maps

It has been brought to my attention that many volunteers do not realize that we also archive photos of the entrance, gate, landscape and buildings of cemeteries. These are added in a special format and should be sent directly to myself, Jim McKane. Please send any history and address/location information available as well.

Also, we are interested in posting plot maps of cemeteries so long as they contain information which is useful to researchers. Again, please send them to me.

Thanks so much for your continued support of our project,
Jim McKane, Administrator

Growing Pains

Well, it seems that in some places we have outgrown the software! The original software was not designed to handle as many records as we are creating in some counties. This over-growth created a problem in the larger counties when attempting to create the page listing all surnames.

Therefore, we have removed the link in the header, Surnames.

If you wish to check for a surname, simply use the normal Search feature by placing the First letter of the desired Surname in the search field.

We hope you won't mind this tiny change.
