         PROJECTS:


In the Spring of 2010 club members took on the project of photographing all the headstones in the Prince Rupert Fairview Cemetery, including the Columbarium, and posting them on the www.findagrave.com website. In use since 1912, there are approximately 7000 graves in this cemetery, and so far we have photographed and posted about 5000 headstones.  This project has also involved the finding, cleaning and lifting of those headstones that have sunk below the moss and muskeg.





Club members have also attempted
to find and photograph headstones
of early Prince Rupert burials
between 1904 and 1912 on Garden  Island, across the Harbour from the  city.
