In the context of a vast update of the data concerning our burials in each of our cemeteries we are now appealing to you.
You'll notice that in each of the benches you will find forms in English and French in order to facilitate the gathering of the needed information.
We have been working hard since last year with several volunteers to retrieve all the names, dates, burials of ashes or bodies and other information about their families that will ensure the future and sustainability of our cemeteries.
We have very few contracts in our archives and we ask each family to contribute to the success of our operation.
Several monuments are called 'orphan lots', meaning no one responsible or have problems, like deterioration. Over the next few months, we will be doing intensive research to gather information about each family.
If you have contracts at home or if you know of family members living outside the region with contracts, please join our research team.
We still have a lot to do to improve the quality of our cemeteries, but together we are confident that we will get there.
We thank you in advance for your attention and interest in our work.
We need families willing to preserve the memory of our ancestors. Please participate by completing the information:
