Volume 3, Green valley - St. Raphaels  is the 3rd in the series volume and 10 years late [1988 ]  in getting published, due to my trying to earn a living so I could pay my bills and carry on this project in the hope of helping you solve your  family history. Lists 3 cemeteries 482 markers with a combined Name index of 1,510 entries. 155 pages; Update to Family Linkages 210 pages


Volume 2, South Lancaster to Bainsville, was published in 1978.  copies of this volume are still available and like volume one  sales have come from all directions and likewise on a slow basis. Volume 2 lists about 854 markers representing about 3,325 names, from  5 cemeteries.  311 pages
In the work done in 1978 for St John the Evangelist cemetery "Church in the Wild wood" there were only 19 gravestones listed. When I did the BMD for this church in 2009, I updated the cemetery listing as well, that listing has 78 markers  http://glengarrycountyareabooks.blogspot.ca/2009/11/st-johns-evangelist-anglican-church-bmd.html, Thus the names on these additional 59 gravestones are not included as part of this summary, as yet.

Volume 1, Williamstown, was published in september 1976. The response has been favourable, yet slow. this volume is now out of print. Orders for this volume have come from all corners of North America and beyond. It did take 10 years for the 500 copies printed to get sold. Volume 1 lists about 834 markers representing about 2,804 names, from 4 cemeteries.  278 pages

The above 14 volumes represent a total of 9,762 markers with a combined name index  of  43,597  entries and 4,023 pages total.

Thanks for the support

take care and God Bless
