Online Cemeteries--What are they?

After taking a genealogical hiatus for a few years, one of the most amazing things I noticed upon my return was the amount of headstone photos I could access from my computer. No more tramping around old cemeteries trying to locate headstones! And birth and death information on more distant relatives that I, no doubt, would not have bothered seeking out in person.

There are multiple sites that offer this information. What are the pros and cons of each? How reliable is this information if there is no photo or if the photo is illegible? How can I add my photos to these sites?

Ben Dawson will be sharing his expertise on this subject with us on Saturday, April 27 at 1:30 p.m. at the Stratford-Perth Archives, 4273 Line 34 (Highway 8) just outside Stratford city limits. Lots of free parking. Stay afterwards to network and share some light refreshments in the boardroom. All welcome!

See you there.
