StonePics is the results of a unique project to photograph and index every headstone and monument in Newfoundland, Canada. Work on the project is 80% complete, and soon Newfoundland will be the first state/province in North America to have a comprehensive database for finding graves. The database contains 161,000 records of names and dates from the headstones and monuments of Newfoundland. These records represent about 225,000 people; CD's containing the digital photographs of the headstones and monuments used to build the database are available for purchase. A total of 122 different CD's are available. Each one contains an average of 1750 photos organized by cemetery and region to increase the likelihood that related individuals will be found on the same CD.
