Group Description

The British Columbia Genealogical Society's Cemetery Committee works to keep the valuable family information in B.C. cemeteries accessible to others by recording and photographing inscriptions, researching burials, publishing B.C. cemetery resources and by fostering the preservation of B.C.'s many historic cemeteries.

We assist and co-operate with other B.C. groups to achieve these goals. We have published many recordings inscriptions of B.C. cemeteries done by our members and by other groups from around the province. These are available in B.C. libraries or from us. Search the B.C. Cemetery Finding Aid to see if your surname has been recorded: BC Cemetery Finding Aid

Please contact us if you or your group are interested in recording a cemetery or updating an older recording and/or publishing. We have a "Cemetery Recording Instruction" booklet "with guidelines and tips.

Our members are interested in genealogy, history, cemetery art and symbolism. This website features photographs of some of our cemetery recording projects and some of our member's favourite cemetery photographs.
