Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in entering and linking as many of my family members as possible for the use of future generations.

If I post any information or photos all users are free to make a copy of these and re-post them to other websites. The more information made available the better for future generations.

As another find a grave contributor stated:
Who would hold hostage - under the pretense of copyright - the photo of a grave stone?

I am particularly interested in preserving the information regarding cemeteries in the Eastern Townships of Quebec such as Ste-Agathe, St-Sylvestre, and St-Jacque-de-Leeds, Inverness, St Pierre, St Patrice, St Severin, St Elzear, and Thetford Mines where many of my ancestors are buried after immigrating from Ireland.

I will finish entering information about burials in those cemeteries up thru 1941 using church records in 2016. Please contact me to transfer your ancestors to your management. Given there are more than 18,000 memorials in these locations I cannot manage them all myself.

In June of 2015 I visited and photographed 4 cemeteries in this area (Ste-Agathe, St-Jacques-de-Leeds, St-Pierre-de-Broughton, and Inverness (St-Athanse). Those photos have been posted. Other stones older than June 2015 no longer exist in those cemeteries. This may because of the age of the marker or because the cemetery has recycled the grave and tossed the marker.

If you visit a cemetery in this or any other area, take your camera! and photograph as many stones as you can, even if they are not your relatives and post them for others!

RE: Jean Montminy
Thank You Barb, yes I can do the Montminy's because most of them are mine if not I may still have info on others from my research.
I hate to hear of the destruction of cemeteries :(
Another reason for me to get to Quebec!!!
I live in GA and it is on mu bucket list of things to do, before I am unable to do it.
Sure wish there was someone there to take pictures.

Hi Barb,
You posted my great grandfather's gravesite at St. Gilles de Lotbiniére, P.Q. #14534128.
He was born 10 Nov 1826 St. Gilles, baptized in the parish of St. Nicolas Parish, Quebec, Canada. Jean died 20 May 1826 at the young age of 57.
I can take this grave if you'd like or I can send you more information.
I live in the USA. I have a photo request in for his grave marker, but I am not sure if there is still a marker in the St-Gilles cemetery or not.
His wife, Marie Celine Fradet died in 1926, so I would think that she had a marker.

There is a picture of the tombstone. I am extremely familiar with this cemetery, it it arranged in Sections, numbered and by new and old. The caretaker is 87 years old, maybe he was confused. I also have a listing of who is there, and she is on the list.

Hello! Hubert Isoire dit Provençal is my 3-great-grandfather. Are you descended from him? If not, I would be happy to take managing his page off of your hands. Would love to see the headstone, if it exists.
