Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help with CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project.

On our home page you will have seen our list of goals. It should give a good indication of the type of help we're seeking.

We're not trying to re-invent the wheel, just trying to make already made wheels easier to find!

Below are the volunteer positions that are currently open. If you can help, please do.


    PHP/SQL Helper
Seeking someone who's familiar with PHP, SQL, ASP or similar scripts (not CGI though) who can help us automate this website making it easier to update & search.

This volunteer position would require a few weeks to get the site automated, then the occasional help later if needed.

Volunteer!


    Photographers (Beginner's/Amateurs Welcome!)
Live in Canada near a cemetery or willing to travel to one? Please consider photographing a cemetery and sending in the photos! We'll host the photos and give you full credit. Photographers would choose a cemetery, photograph each headstone within the cemetery (it needn't be done at all once, you can complete the task in more than one visit if need be) taking care to photograph all sides if they include names & dates, and then send the photographs to us via e-mail or post (snail). We cannot compensate for the cost of sending via post.

This volunteer position would require only what you're willing to give, short term or long term.

Volunteer:
  • Alberta
  • British Columbia
  • Manitoba
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland & Labrador
  • Northwest Territories
  • Nova Scotia
  • Nunavut
  • Ontario
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Québec
  • Saskatchewan

  •     Information Seekers
    Anyone anywhere can volunteer to be an information seeker. You don't need to be Canadian or live in Canada. Information seekers would look for information to add to our cemetery database. Information such as: Cemeteries not yet in the database, Locations of cemeteries, History of cemeteries, Transcript or index locations. Pretty much any information about any Canadian cemetery.

    There's no need to sign up for this position, start seeking out the information then send it into the website through the Addition/Correction forms available on each cemetery page (Click here to see where the links are located).


        Coordinators
    A coordinator is a volunteer who maintains the "database" (we use Excel spreadsheets) for a province or territory. This position also includes updating the main page of their part of the website (the province / territory page) as well as adding any submissions sent in by visitors (new information, new cemeteries, transcripts, indexes, photos, etc).

    Anyone anywhere can be a coordinator BUT they must be familiar with the province or territory they maintain whether by location (having lived there) or by personal research experience (had ancestors living there).

    This volunteer position would require some html & database/spreadsheet experience (or a willingness to learn), knowledge of the area, and a few hours a week to maintain the submissions sent in by visitors to this site.

    We are currently seeking coordinators for:

  • North-West Territory

    Volunteer!
