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, information-rich resource. This resource is of immense value to those not able to travel to the cemetery in person.

This Headstone Photo Project is a non-profit organization. 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!

Notice - Although this website is non-profit, we do offer users a selection of Ads by Google. This is necessary to 'pay the bills.' To date, revenues have severely lagged behind expenses. Please patronize our advertisers to ensure the future of this valuable resource. The Canadian Headstone Photo Project will always be a FREE service to all researchers!

N.B. - Changes and news about CanadianHeadstones are posted regularly on our Blog & Facebook. Please subscribe to the Blog & "Like" us on Facebook.

We are currently seeking volunteers to help take and upload photos for many cities, counties and municipal districts. 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.

This would be an excellent project for your genealogy or history group. Your church could create a permanent, up-datable, searchable photographic record of your cemetery.

When searching headstone photos, only cities, counties, or municipal districts which have headstones uploaded to them will appear.

Photos on this site may be used with permission only.

Now, you may submit the transcription from a headstone without having a photo!
OR you can submit the photo of a cemetery entrance/sign!
