Ancestry adds Web: Global, Gravestone Photograph Index, 1265-2014

Ancestry has another database added, scraped from Gravestone Photographic Resource, an international directory of grave monuments at www.gravestonephotos.com/.

Ancestry claims 876,327 entries in the database.
Toronto's Mount Pleasant and St John Norway's cemeteries are well represented. Other Ontario communities I noticed are: Durham, Glenelg Township, Gravenhurst, Maple, Markdale, Maxwell, Nottawasaga, Orange Valley, Oro, Pickering, St Catharines, Vespra, Whitevale, and Williamsford.

There are some BC and Alberta entries, and just two for Manitoba.  Only Nova Scotia in the east has and entries.

The UK has over 750,000 entries.
