Montreal cemetery tour - Notre Dame de Neiges

This follows on yesterday's post, which had photos of the tour of Mont Royal cemetery on Sunday, with photos of Notre Dame de Neiges cemetery. 

Of special interest to Quebec and adjacent area genealogists, the monument for the the Gabriel Drouin family.

The resting place of politician Thomas D'Arcy McGee, assassinated on Ottawa's Sparks Street in 1868.

Always check the reverse side of the monument; you may find a family tree.

Or you may find poetry - containing a cryptic message.

Sometimes a genealogist's errors are enough to make an angel weep!

Note: these photos were taken with no indication there may be a prohibition. However, see this item from the Legal Genealogist. Thanks to Brenda Turner for the tip.
