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. 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. You may submit the transcription from a headstone without having a photo. You can also submit the photo of a cemetery entrance/sign.
This is the oldest and the largest free access national Canadian site which collects and displays photos of grave markers in cemeteries. Currently there are almost 1,000 completely photographed cemeteries and 400,000 photos online.
