• Contains—a slower search that looks for letters embedded in a name. ith finds Smith, Beckwith, Braithwaite, and Dithridge. geor finds David George and Dorothy Georgina.
• Sounds like—when you are unsure of the spelling, choose this option. Rachel finds Rachel, Rachael, Rackel, and Raquelle.

To find an exact initial, use a single letter followd by a period. Often, Contains is a better choice as there are many names with a leading initial (the person was known by second name).

Our Volunteers

Over 100 volunteers plus several coordinators walked the cemeteries and searched the archives in Ontario, Canada to bring you this comprehensive database.  The task is on-going and hopefully others will join to carry the torch.  Will you volunteer to do a cemetery in your area?  We extend our heartfelt thanks here; we couldn't have done it without you!  Thank you.
