New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Cemeteries

For anyone whose ancestors are buried in New Brunswick, Canada and Amerst, Nova Scotia, there are over 60,000 photos of headstones located at New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Cemeteries that have all been indexed.  If you find  a photo of your ancestor's headstone, feel free to download it to you computer.

Sincere gratitude to cousins Hector Boudreau, his wife Jeanita (LeBlanc) and Francis LeBlanc, from Moncton, for the many hours they have spent photographing the headstones of mostly Acadian New Brunswick and Nova Scotia cemeteries. Thank you my good friends and cousins Hector and Jeanita & Francis for your  valuable contribution to all who are searching for the final resting place of their Ancestors.

Heartfelt thanks to Wendy Maddix who volunteered to coordinate all of the volunteers and kept track of the many cemetery pages being indexed. It was a huge undertaking. A special thank you to Patricia Burke-Hanenburg who created a Master Index for all of the individually indexed cemeteries.

Sincere thanks to the following volunteers for their commitment and hours spent indexing or proofreading the cemetery pages:

This was such a great project to work on and was an example of how powerful a group of volunteers can be - especially when pulled together by such an expert organizer as you are!

What a wonderful endeavor! Thank you for sharing this. My husband has many New Brunswick ancestors; I have many ancestors in Nova Scotia. I hope to find "buried treasure" here!

Hi Wendy,

I hope you find graves/headstones for some of your family and your husband's as well.

Thank you Evelyn - the thing is that I was truly honored that so many people were willing to work on this project. I have a few more cemeteries that people have volunteered to work on but have not yet had time to do my end of this. Hopefully before too long!
