As we release an update to changes to the Website we will place the information on the Website.

June Change Log:

  1. Added the ability to view the site in either English or French (via Google Translate) in order to make the site usable to more people.
  2. Added a rolling comments section on front page of Website.
  3. Continued updating of the search mechanism and the database for optimum results.
  4. Updated the CanadianHeadstones.com index being used by Ancestry & FamilySearch. We are waiting for them to apply those new indexes. Discussions continue with MyHeritage & Findmypast to provide them with our latest indexes.
  5. Birth & Death Dates now appear in the Search Results.
  6. Added an “Other Person” Button to search results. This allows you to see others associated with the particular headstone.
Image shows Other Person Button.

Stay tuned for further updates as we go forward. Things we are working on:

  1. “Lightbox” for images so they don’t open in a new tab but in the same window.
  2. Automated updates to the database so entries become “LIVE” sooner.
  3. Any suggestions or ideas you may have.

So far in 2021, we have added 5,342 Persons and 1,885 Headstones!!

We thank you for your continuing support to the only totally non-profit headstone site dedicated exclusively to the digital preservation of Canada’s grave marker heritage.
