The Objective of this *Newsletter* has been to publish changes and bulletins to The *Canadian Gravemarker Gallery* website.
In our 17th year of operation, The Webmaster, Murray Pletsch has decided to retire. Firstly, Murray wishes to thank all the kind and thoughtful supporters and volunteers who rolled up their sleeves and pitched in to make the website a valuable genealogical resource. We salute them all....!
1. The Owner (Sherri Pettit) of the *CanadaGenWeb* website has agreed to incorporate the photos from The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery website into their website.
2. The merging of these two free access websites will take several months to complete.
3. In the meantime, until mid summer 2017, The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery will continue online to welcome visitors. PLEASE NOTE that this version of the website will NOT be updated, to avoid confusion and possible duplication between the two websites while the merging of the two websites continues.
4. Lastly, please understand that this will be a massive job to re-index the 1,600 cemeteries from The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery. We reiterate that both websites are "Free Access" entities and no doubt their team will be going flat out to complete the move. We understand the main site at CanadaGenWeb will post their progress reports every now and then.
Who knows, but someday, this too, will be remembered with pleasure. (An Interpretation of the Aeneid by Wendell Clausen)
