View Headstone Photos from across Canada
Welcome to the Canadian Headstone Photo Project
The mission of this project is to capture digital images of  headstones of our ancestors. As decades pass -- many stones are becoming harder, if not impossible, to read the inscriptions they originally contained.

By archiving the images, we can help save these important records and also assist researchers using this valuable resource.

This Headstone Photo Project is a privately sponsored, non-profit, educational site. Success of the Project depends completely upon the activities of many volunteers and other individuals who contribute photographs to the archive.

Help save history for future generations.!

We are currently seeking volunteers to help take and upload photos for many areas of Canada. We, also, require volunteers to assist the webmaster by acting as coordinators. If you have an interest in volunteering for this rewarding part-time activity, please contact us.

The Headstone Photo Project would be an excellent project for your genealogy or history group. It could also become a church congregational project to create a permanent, up-datable, searchable photographic record of your cemetery.
