Happy New Year
Welcome to 2022 and the launch of our new monthly newsletter for those who are interested in cemeteries or to those who can’t get enough of cemeteries. As we move forward into 2022, we will be changing or modifying the Newsletter as needed.
Below you will find a YouTube Video on the National Cemetery, Beechwood and how it was created and managed. As well you will find an article from Veterans Affair Canada about the maintenence of the Headstones. Along with these two items you will find other images and information like the Tech Update for the Website.
With a new year upon us, we look at our organization and say “Well done over 2021” with all the Tech Changes and New Submissions to the Database. Going forward we would like to further develop a place to store Family History Information about Headstones and we are working on new storage location for the thousands of photos we have. Digital Storage is expensive and limited and we need to keep an eye on these costs and storage availability.
In closing, we hope this newsletter continues to peak your interest in Cemeteries across Canada. If you would like to submit something for the newsletter, email us at [email protected] Please feel free to share this newsletter and don’t hesitate if you have photos to submit them to the database. If you don’t have photos but wish to help, we have lots for you. Thanks to those who are submitting photos and transcriptions.
Till next month
