Thank You Note

One of our newer volunteers, Wilson, has already received this note -

Subject: Thank you for helping me find the bones of my ancestors
Earlier this month, I came across Canadianheadstones.com, and happened upon photos of some of my ancestors in Millbrook Cemetery, George & Anne McLeod, their sons William ad Donald, and William's wife, Nancy. In the same cemetery was another line, Kenneth McKenzie and his wife, Nancy.
As a child, I spent many summers on the family farm in Millbrook, but we didn't call it Millbrook then, we called it Union Centre. Kenneth McKenzie and his family lived there, and Kenneth's son Alexander married William McLeod's daughter, Jessie, and one of their children was my grandmother!
If not for the photos and the listing, I might never have found this. I had never heard of this cemetery growing up and all the older folks who knew something about this are gone now.
I just spent the morning in the cemetery! Thank you again!

I simply want to thank you for gathering this database.
I recently found a photo of an ancestor's tombstone
using your service.  Our family is close to dying out.  
More than likely I'm the only person in the world who
would be interested in that tombstone.  And thanks to
you I was able to find it! 
I am sure there are many other people you've helped,
who you may never hear from.  But thank you from them
too!

Bonjour! 
Tout d'abord merci pour cette magnifique idée! Quel beau travail de collaboration! 
Une petite erreur s'est glissée dans la transcription de la date du décès de mon père : on devrait lire 2004 et non 2005.  
Voilà! Et merci encore! 
Longue vie au projet!
