Cemetery History

The Parish was created in 1854 and official church records began that year.

There are 120 people interred here with the surname Bombardier. The most famous was Joseph-Armand Bombardier. He invented the snowmobile (ski-doo) in 1936 and then armoured vehicles for the military, all terrain vehicles and eventually his company produced subway cars, trains and jets. The Bombardier Museum of Ingenuity was opened not far from the cemetery in 1971.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
