600,000 Records and Counting!!

Another Wonderful Milestone - 600,000 !!

Congratulations to the Best Team of Volunteers in Canada!! 

Throughout the winter our dedicated volunteers continued to slave away pumping in new records from their stored up photos at the rate of over 650 per day!

And now that many areas of southern Ontario are snow-free again, some volunteers are beginning to snap photos of new cemeteries.

It is YOU who makes the project a success.

It won't be long when we'll reach the 3/4 Million Mark!

Thank you to each and every person - whether you submitted one or 1,001 photo!
