BillionGraves is the world′s largest resource for searchable GPS cemetery data, and is growing bigger and better every day. You can help by collecting headstone images from local and other cemeteries, and then by transcribing the personal information found on the images.

Canadian Headstones

Our mission is to capture images and the complete transcription of the headstones of our ancestors.  As time passes, it is becoming more difficult to read the original inscriptions. By archiving the images, we can help save these important, information-rich records for those unable to visit a cemetery in person as well as for future researchers. Success of this non-profit project depends completely upon the activities of volunteers who contribute to the archive.
