Finding Headstones in the Grass

Canadian Headstone Photo Project


Genealogists in Canada and elsewhere will be interested to hear of the Canadian Headstone Photo Project. This looks like a worthwhile cause if you are interested in volunteering. 

“The mission of this project is to capture digital images of  headstones of our ancestors. As decades pass — many stones are becoming harder, if not impossible, to read the inscriptions they originally contained. By archiving the images, we can help save these important records and also assist researchers using this valuable resource.  This Headstone Photo Project is a privately sponsored, non-profit, educational site. Success of the Project depends completely upon the activities of many volunteers and other individuals who contribute photographs to the archive.”

If you enjoy photography and would relish a worthwhile volunteer project, consider helping with this one.  The Website is here:
