|In March 2016, my father visited Heavenly Rest cemetery in Windsor, Ontario|
and photographed the headstones of his family
On a recent trip (March 2016), my father obligingly took photographs for me of our ancestors headstones.
Only 27% of the graves/headstones at Heavenly Rest cemetery in Windsor have been photographed at "Find A Grave" and our ancestors headstones have NOT. So I am eternally grateful for my father doing this for me so that I can share them here on this family history blog.
My father's headstones photographs are presented below in alphabetical order with links to any blog posts that I may have already written about that ancestor..

Long ago, the Irish were famous for wakes. The traditional wake was a merry celebration of the deceased’s life, where copious amounts of snuff and alcohol were taken, songs were sung and games were played.
