Cemeteries

1. http://ocfa.islandnet.com// - Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid

The Ontario Cemetery Finding Aid is a pointer database consisting of the surnames, cemetery name and location of over 3 Million interments from several thousand cemeteries, cairns, memorials, and cenotaphs in Ontario Canada.

2. http://www.waynecook.com/Tombstone_Territory.html - Tombstone Territories

Welcome to Tombstone Territory where the purpose of this part of the site is to photograph and put online cemeteries in Simcoe County. Due to the fact that a good portion of these old markers would be impossible to read if I put the full headstone online, I have elected to concentrate on the text. After the photos are taken they are then enhanced as best I can, then cropped, resized and compressed for faster loading, for the newer markers I will put the full photo online.

DISCLAIMER
These photos do not represent all the burials in the cemetery but only the ones that were photographable. Please check the OCFA website and/or the Ontario Genealogical Society website for the actual transcriptions that were done at an earlier time.
