Cemetery Burial Indices
The recording of local cemeteries is one of the most important tasks of local family history groups. In 1982 the Abbotsford Genealogical Society started to record the memorial information from thirteen of the cemeteries in the boundaries of the Cities of Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Agassiz. Various committees and individuals of the Society have continued this recording over the years.
There has been no recording of the First Nations cemeteries.
Through the extensive efforts over the years of many AGS volunteers, this information is available to the public by checking the index for the appropriate community and contacting the Cemetery Transcription Coordinator with details of your inquiry (full name, date of birth, date of death). A small fee may apply.
Rather than continuing to record, all of the memorial information available on every gravestone it has been decided to photograph each marker and the photos, as they are completed, can be found by clicking here to the Canadian Grave Markers website.
If you do not find what you are looking for please contact the Cemetery Transcription Coordinator with details and we will make every effort to assist.
