OGS revives CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project

The following is good news extracted from an Ontario Genealogical Press Release.

Due to security issues with their current hosting provider, portions of CanadaGenWeb’s Cemetery Project have been offline for more than three months, with no solutions in sight. Recognizing the value of these genealogical resources, OGS stepped in to offer a solution. CanadaGenWeb’s Cemetery Project has been working over the last month preparing for the changeover. The site is back up and operating with a new look and feel. Work will continue to evolve over the next few weeks as the website settles into its new server.

The CanadaGenWeb's Cemetery Project (http://cemetery.canadagenweb.org) debuted in October 2004 as the first Canada-wide, Canada-only cemetery project.
At present they offer a free and searchable directory of more than 21,000 Canadian cemeteries, including locations, histories and links to repositories and genealogy organizations that offer further information and/or assistance.
Plus, a 1.5 million (and growing) names index of volunteer contributed photographs, indexes and transcripts.
