Wilfrid Charron, Denise Charron and myself  have been photographing cemeteries of the Upper Gatineau region over the last few years. The names and dates from the headstones have been put into an Access Databse and the output converted to PDF files. As you can see in the list below, only a few have been transferred to Access so far. More will be added as they are completed.

You may request pictures, using the picture ID#,  free of charge by contacting me.

A special thanks to Juan H. Northcross over at for providing me his time and expertise on creating an Access Database for me which I now use to store all the information found below. (Local computer only since Tripod does not support a database.).

Excellent  place for all your Database needs!

Silver Creek   The Centre of the World

This book is based on the author's observations and recollections as a youngster growing up in a small community in the Ottawa Valley in the late 1930's and 1940's. It mirrors a bygone way of life of some of our ancestors. The reader is trasported back to a "horse and buggy" era. Few outside influences affected the peoples' traditional way of making a living. They had a healthy respect for the natural environment with which it was necessary to coexist in close harmony. Hard work and values like generosity and cooperation were prized and considered essential.
