I have been involved in genealogy since about 1999 and have been sharing photos of cemeteries on my blog BJM Cemetery Discoveries at Blogger. I was going to move it to Wordpress but it would be too big a mess. In my travels I have collected a lot of tombstone photos and I didn't want my cemetery photos to get dusty on my computer so I started sharing them on my blogs and especially the BJM Cemetery Discoveries. I use Find A Grave a lot in my own research.

I am an avid blogger of my family history and have several blogs that cover my Mac/McDonald origins and go back in my father's past to his Barclay, Keller, Delano, Spracklin/len, Goss ancestors and on my mother's side Boardman, Brown, Ward, McMurray and Jackson etc.

I know it seems like a lot but it works for me.

Saint Thomas Anglican Cemetery in Belleville was difficult to photograph so many surviving stones were broken, to hard to read. I put as many as I could up of the photos I have taken. I have many I can't read.

On August 4, 2015 I finished inputting names and tombstone photos into the St. Alphonse Roman Catholic Church Cemetery in Chapeau. Not all the photos are of great quality and I am willing to upload and replace them with better photos for this cemetery. I am using the Cemetery publication of St. Alphonse prepared by E. Burns in 2000 as reference for cemetery plots. The cemetery is my no means complete but this is a good start. If you are not a member of Find A Grave but have tombstone photos to add, please leave me a message and we can work something out. Becoming a member of Find A Grave is easy but it does take a little time to learn how to use it.
