Smiths Falls Hillcrest Cemetery Database

At the OGS Region VIII AGM on Saturday I learned from Shirley Sommerville of the Lanark Country Genealogical Society of a new volunteer-produced database, with 8,584 entries, for Hillcrest Cemetery in Smiths Falls. It's available at www.smithsfalls.ca/hillcrest-data.cfm. The flat file, with a search function, contains for each entry, where available: title, last name, first name, initial, part, section, suffix, plot, grave. A map of the cemetery is available online so you can zero in on the site.
Canadian Headstones.com has gravestone images for this cemetery with 12,061 entries.

The database seems to include only burials with headstones. My grandfather is buried there but has no stone and is not in the published database

Smith's Falls website seems to be under construction.

Possible new link to the cemetery database, when finished:
