As of yesterday, I have uploaded almost 5,000 photos of tombstones from several cemeteries in New Brunswick. I am most grateful to Hector Boudreau, his wife Jeanita (LeBlanc) and Francis LeBlanc of Moncton who have spent all those hours taking these great photos. I believe that posting them to the Internet allows me to share their great work.
Today, Hector put another 9 parishes of cemetery photos in the mail to me. Yes, those cds represent another nine cemeteries they have photographed! Aren't they great?
I believe that more is accomplished when we an pool our resources and work together in our quest to disseminate information to others. This should be a huge help to so many people. You all know that in most cases the tombstones reveal the date of birth as well as the date of death. The other plus is that for those who will never be able to visit the Maritimes this should be a handy research tool.
So stay tuned - lots more good "stuff" coming in your way.
I have now divided the Shediac cemetery into nine "pages". It was taking too long to load 1,000 thumbnails on one page [of course!].
So enjoy and do come visit us often!
Your Acadian cousin,
