  1. It is a shame the church is hidden behind the trees, but I do love that iron fence.
    …..and how about that wooden sidewalk?
    🙂

    • Wooden sidewalks are one of my favourite things to find in postcards.
      For us it is a shame that the church is hidden but it must have been wonderful for the parishioners – especially since it would have protected them from the fierce snowstorms that whip through rural Quebec!

    • Hello,

      The Société d’histoire et de généalogie de Farnham et région has undertaken to enter all burials in Farnham on Find a Grave site on the internet.

      We are presently entering the RC cemetery (over 4000 burials). When done, the next one will be the St James Anglican cemetery, followed by the Methodist Fernwnwood cemetery and last the Kirwood cemetery. Srone pictures will be uploaded.

      In the mean time, if you have a specific gravestone you are looking for, let ne know the particulars and I’ll look for it.
