Questions?

CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project is pleased to work with other volunteer websites that offer free access to Canadian cemetery photos. Should you choose, we request that you give these sites first refusal to post cemetery photos within these areas:
      » Ontario, Lanark County: Please contact Lanark County GenWeb
      » Ontario, Oxford County: Already completed by Cemeteries of Oxford County
      » Ontario, Simcoe County: Please contact Tombstone Territory
      » Ontario, Northern Districts + Renfrew County: Please contact Northern Ontario Gravemarkers Gallery
      » Saskatchewan: The Saskatchewan portion of CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project is coordinated by Saskatchewan GenWeb's host Julia Adamson. You can contact her directly through Saskatchewan GenWeb or sign up through the cemetery project. (Cemetery photos sent to Saskatchewan GenWeb are posted only on Saskatchewan GenWeb but the index to the photos is also posted here at CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project).

Cropping Photos

Resizing Photos

    Before resizing a photo please crop it first if needed.

    It's requested photos be no smaller than 350x255:

    Cropping before shrinking ensures that the headstone remains the main subject of the photo which can help with the readability of the inscription:

    Photos smaller than 350x255 are very difficult to read. Most of the photos we post on this site are 800x600 ensuring that they are large enough for most people to read, yet still small enough that they will load quickly for most internet users. (see example)

    We're happy to accept cropped photos between these two sizes. Larger sizes are also accepted but will be shrunk to 800x600 before being added to the website.
