CANADIAN GRAVEMARKER GALLERY.
****************************
1. Over the past 8 years I have been asked by Out-Of-Province folks, "If
I photographed local cemeteries, can I send the pictures to you and have
them placed online?" At the time, I told these folks that I was
concentrating only on Northern Ontario.
*
2. However, I have now built a National website: http://gravemarkers.ca
..! On this "free-access" new site I can accommodate photographs of
complete cemeteries from anywhere in Canada. The photographer is given
credit on the website for all his/her hard work.
*
3. If you have family or friends across Canada who may be interested in
photographing their local cemeteries, please pass on this information to
them. Their photographed cemeteries will have wide exposure on this National
Cemetery website.
*
4. If you and/or your organization is interested in your local cemeteries
going online, please contact Murray at: mailto: or
mailto:
*
5. A comprehensive "Tips and Hints" aide memoire will be sent to all
interested folks....to help them get started.
*
6. Links to popular Rootsweb Genealogical Mailing Lists are onboard.
These lists provide an excellent vehicle for you to get your "brick walls"
published and available to thousands of eyes. The Mailing Lists have
searchable archives.
*
*
NORTHERN ONTARIO GRAVEMARKER GALLERY.
************************************
1. The Northern ON Gravemarker Gallery has over 400 cemeteries and
300,000 photographs online with more going online weekly.
*
2. Search Engine. Please note that the websites have Exclusive Onboard
Search Engines.
*
3. The number of visitors to the Northern ON Gravemarker Gallery has
exceeded 540,000 visits....which is remarkable when you consider the
majority of these visitors are dedicated family researchers.
*
4. Links to popular Rootsweb Northern Ontario Genealogical Mailing Lists
are onboard. These lists provide an excellent vehicle for you to get your
"brick walls" published and available to thousands of eyes. The Mailing
Lists have searchable archives.
*
*
NORTHERN ONTARIO HISTORIC/NOSTALGIC WEBSITE.
*******************************************
1. Several visitors have asked about the research value of the
Historic/Nostalgic website. I explain that the yearbooks and classroom
photos with names, place the student in a specific place and time; plus in
most cases it will also place their parents in that specific place and time.
*
2. Please note that the *Northern Ontario Historic Photo Gallery* is
online at: http://www.rootsweb.com/~cannor
*
3. Currently there are many yearbooks and class photos online for
Northern Ontario communities.
*
4. Please note that the search engine on the Historic Site is exclusive
to that website.
*
5. If you would be interested in having your Northern Ontario High School
Yearbook placed online - contact Murray at mailto:

NOTES:
*****
1. Cemeteries have spousal duplicated photographs. This means a photo
which has the spouse's maiden name showing, is duplicated and when one
searches for a surname, the spouse's surname will be a separate "search
result".
*
2. The speed at which cemeteries are photographed depends mainly on the
affordability of gas for our cars to reach distant cemeteries. Should you
wish to help out with this ongoing huge project, please contact Murray at
mailto:
