Locations and Genealogy
Many people today have a great interest in genealogy. Cemeteries are a major source of information for tracing our past.
The links noted on the right are also great sources of information for researching your ancestors locally and across Canada.
Searches are provided for the following locations:
- Bothwell Cemetery, Bothwell, ON
- Dresden Cemetery, Dresden, ON
- Evergreen Cemetery, Blenheim, ON
- Maple Leaf & St. Anthony's Cemetery and Mausolea, Chatham, ON
- Riverview Cemetery, Wallaceburg, ON
- Sherman Cemetery, Thamesville, ON
The Municipality of Chatham-Kent is also responsible for over 55 inactive cemetery sites located throughout the municipality. As many of these sites are pioneer cemeteries that have been abandoned over the years, few records are available. However, Chatham-Kent ensures that the properties are maintained in accordance with the Funeral, Burial, & Cremation Services Act (2002).
Telephone, walk-in, and e-mail enquiries for family and individual searches are welcome, however, these requests take time to fully research. We appreciate your patience. We can be reached by telephone at 519-360-1998; by E-mail at CKpch@chatham-kent.ca; or in person at our offices at 25 Creek Road, Chatham ON.
