How it works:
1. Pick a Canadian cemetery
2. Try to find out as much about it as possible*
3. Send in the info you find

There’s no need to sign up for this position. Pick a cemetery and start sleuthing! As you locate information it can be submitted to the website through that cemetery’s addition form (these forms can be found on each cemetery page). Please use only the forms on the cemetery page to submit information as this ensures we apply it to the correct cemetery.
