Over the last month or so there has been a flurry of activity on the website.

In April we released an update to changes to the Website including the restart of Cemetery Headstone submitting. Please see here for the April update –

Now for the May Update to the Website, or Changelog as we would like to call it:

  1. Emphasized links and converted numerous links and instructions to buttons throughout the site to assist users.
  2. Provided Reporting Page for reporting duplicates and corrections.
  3. Numerous cosmetic changes to present cleaner look and feel to users.
  4. Developed an Ancestor Search on the Main Page to allow you to start searching sooner.
  5. Increased the searching speed of the Database.
  6. Changed the Submission Page to allow 4 pictures to be entered per submission.
  7. Changed the Submission Page to allow up to 25 persons to be entered instead of 10 persons per submission.
  8. Along with the ability to edit names after submission, we have also included the ability to edit Transcriptions as well.
  9. Updated backend software modules to maintain maximum speed and efficiency.
  10. Added person (entry) counter to front page of the site.

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

  1. Light box for Images so they don’t open in a new Tab but the same window.
  2. Auto submissions to the Database so entries become “LIVE” sooner.
  3. Further development of Other Resources page.
  4. Any suggestions or ideas you may have.

Since April, we have added 3088 Persons and 1157 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.
