The Mission of Canadian Headstones:
“To capture digital images and the complete transcription of headstones of our ancestors. As decades pass, it is becoming harder – if not impossible – to read the inscriptions these stones originally contained. By archiving the images and transcriptions, these important records are saved”.
Starting in early 2016, the Halton-Peel Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society agreed to work with Canadian Headstones to get our current and future photographs of Halton and Peel gravestones on to the Canadian Headstones site. In 2017, the Ontario Genealogical Society assumed responsibility for this valuable research tool.
The Halton-Peel Branch is grateful to all Canadian Headstones volunteers, particularly Sandra Lindsay, who have spent many hours photographing cemeteries and uploading their images. Our joint long-term goal is to ensure as many cemetery headstone photographs and transcriptions as possible from Halton and Peel Regions will be accessible via the internet.
As our Halton-Peel volunteers are adding more cemeteries to the Canadian Headstones site, we would encourage you to keep popping back to our site to see the latest additions!
Our apologies – until OGS completes their work on updating the Canadian Headstones site, the links below do not work.
