More New Brunswick Cemetery Headstones

More New Brunswick cemeteries will soon be indexed by volunteers of the AFC RootsWeb mailing list.

Volunteers from the AFC ( Acadian-French-Canadian) list indexed more than 60,000 photos of cemetery headstones a couple of years ago. Hector Boudreau and his wife Jeanita née LeBlanc went out and photographed more headstones. Those to be indexed: Bass River, Chapel Point, South Branch, Riverside Albert, Hardwicke, Alderwood, Minto: Holy Rosary and St. Bridget as well as Dorchester.

People do write to say how helpful it is for them to have access to all of the information that has been made available to them through the project located at the Acadian Ancestral Home cemetery pages -

Stay tuned - when they are online it will be announced on this blog! There are already seven volunteers on-board. They were also part of the group that indexed those more than 60,000 photos. My thanks to them for helping to make this project possible.

With love from your cousin,
