Grateful for CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project

I have immense gratitude for the creators of and volunteers at CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project.

On June 25, CanGenWeb published a cemetery update that included cemeteries in Kent and Essex counties in Ontario. Thanks to this update, I found a Kent county Moynahan, Timothy Moynahan's (1848-1925) headstone in Essex county's St Francis Xavier Cemetry:

I also located a good number of Moynahans that are not in my Moynahan family tree!

The Cemetery Project debuted in 2004 as a volunteer project of CanadaGenWeb and currently offers a free and searchable listing of over 18,000 known Canadian cemeteries.

 This volunteer built database offers a variety of information geared towards genealogists:

  • Names, locations & histories of cemeteries 
  • Links to repositories & genealogy organizations that offer further information and/or assistance 
  • Lookup offers, transcripts, indexes, and photos compiled by volunteers.
