Dear Fellow Researchers:
1. Terrace Lawn Cemetery is a large 91 years old cemetery near the centre
of North Bay, Ontario.
2. The cemetery is slowly but surely deteriorating, mainly because the
plots have been all sold and the maintenance of the cemetery is relying
mainly on the interest from the Perpetual Care Trust Fund. Most of you
likely know with the reduced interest rates over the past 10 years or
so....the interest on these funds is also reduced and one does not need to
be a banker to paint a clear picture.
3. This message is for the information of all those folks who may be
associated with and familiar with the inherent problems trying to effect
proper care and maintenance of older cemeteries in their communities in
Ontario and likely elsewhere.
4. The message is more specifically addressed to descendants of ancestors
buried in Terrace Lawn Cemetery in North Bay and who are dispersed all over
the world. Should you know a friend or family member who are descendants,
please pass the message to them.
5. The message? Please check http://home.cogeco.ca/~terrace for details
about the situation and how your help can really make a difference.
Best regards.......Murray Pletsch
