Our mission at is to capture images and the complete transcription of the headstones of our ancestors.

It is becoming more difficult to read the original gravestone inscriptions with each passing day due to the effects of environmental conditions on headstones. By archiving images of headstones and other monuments at a point in time, we can help preserve these important, information-rich records for those unable to visit a cemetery in person, as well as for future generations of researchers.

A Completely Volunteer-Staffed Canadian Non-Profit Corporation, we are dedicated to capturing digital images and transcriptions of the headstones of our ancestors. Success of this non-profit project depends completely upon the activities of volunteers who contribute to the archive and who operate and maintain this site. We are grateful to Ontario Ancestors who provide hosting services for this website.
