How can you help?
If you are a typist, you can transcribe obituaries. There are lots of files just setting on my computer waiting to be typed.
You could submit obituaries that you have in your files. But only already typed obits for the time being. We have so many obituaries to type right now that it would be impossible to take anymore without them being typed. AND if you are submitting obituaries, please, please, please, NO paragraphs. The obituary should just be one big paragraph. Paragraphs drive the database crazy!!
Please use this spreadsheet to submit obits and email the file to me at rj"at"nsobits.ca. I can import directly from the spreadsheet. Click here
If you don't do much typing, you can copy, paste and index into the database.
The cemetery photos seem to be a favorite, so if you would like to contribute stones pictures from cemeteries in your community, they are always welcome. We cannot take individual photos, the stone pictures must be a collection of stones (doesn't have to be complete) from one cemetery.
In the members area you will see a little graphic with the obituary. This graphic can be replaced by a photo of the deceased. If you would like to submit a photo, rename your photo with the file number at the end of the obituary and then send to me.
Also, in the members area, I have set up the database to display the cemetery stone picture with the obituary. If you would like to submit a photo, rename your photo with the file number at the end of the obituary and then send to me.
To see a sample of both pictures, once you are in the members area, do a search for Faith Marie Lloyd.
