General Cemetery Research in Manitoba

This section is intended to make researchers aware of some of the resources available to them in their genealogical research. Researchers should not rely only upon on-line resources, but due to their easy accessibility this section may appear to focus on or "favour" them.

Internet Accessible Resources

General Sources

This on-going project has summary pages for many Manitoba Cemeteries, including information on the location and administration of the cemetery, links to other relevant external web pages and noting some resources not accessible on the Internet. In general, if the cemetery page includes transcriptions there will be a link in the Resources section above. If not, use the link in this section to search for the cemetery of interest.
The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery was a volunteer supported website maintained by Murray Pletsch. It featured grave marker photos and provided a limited surname search capability based upon up to 8 characters in the file name of each photo.
Mr. Pletsch has retired from his role supporting this web site. An agreement was readhed with the Canada GenWeb Cemetery Project to index and load the photos to their site. This is a massive volunteer effort and many cemeteries are not yet loaded (Jan 2019)
in some cases, the gravemarker gallery pages for a given cemetery may still exist, but the majority are no longer avaiolable.
Our Roots is a library, archive, museum and school all in one. Check the collection to find Canadian local histories in French and English.

Traditional (Non-Internet) Resources

As mentioned in the introduction above, do not restrict your research to internet searches alone. Consult Cemetery registers if they exist. Visit cemetery administration offices, local libraries, branches of the Manitoba Genealogical Society, Manitoba Archives and other agencies to locate relevant documents.
