Coilbound Edition

This book of cemetery monument transcriptions includes names and information for 1634 persons. The earliest mentioned dates are the birth of Marie Verette in 1781, and the birth of J. B. Belanger in 1797.

The memorial stones in this cemetery are recorded in French. However, that is not a barrier to non-French speaking researchers insofar as it is easy to translate by copy/paste into Google Translate

This new (2018) edition includes all updates that the Ontario Genealogical Society added to the book during the years since the cemetery was originally transcribed in 1991, and 1996. The archived master files didn't indicate how many changes were made nor when they were added.

Contents include:
  • Table of Contents
  • Photo of Ste Felicite Roman Catholic Church
  • Terms and Facts (explanation of)
  • Cemetery Plan
  • Stone Inscriptions (stone number - stone inscription)
  • Index - Click here to browse the complete Index
About Ste-Félicité Roman Catholic Cemetery, Clarence Creek

In 1865, the parish had 200 families all French-Canadian and had a resident priest. In 1868, the bishop blessed the first stone and put the church under the patronage of Saint Félicité, because he noticed that several mothers had this name. The church, built on a small hill, received the blessing of the bishop in December 1869. Subsequently, efforts were made to enlarge and close the cemetery, to erect a way of the cross, to place some statues and a bell .

With the church, just built, it no longer met the needs of the population which, in 1873, counted 250 families. A new temple was needed. At the blessing of the first stone, the bishop said that "this new stone church must replace the old stone that was destroyed because it was too small and not suitable enough." The religious sentiment of the parishioners demands a temple more worthy of the majesty of Almighty God ". This church, blessed on August 18, 1891, remains the one we still admire today.

NOTE about print quality: Inc. entered into a publishing agreement with the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society in 2016, to publish current and future books as well as to bring all of their previously published works back into print. We are pleased to make their books available once again under our Global Heritage Press imprint. Each book has been reprinted as it was prepared by the volunteers of the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, without additional corrections or additions, though the Branch often made additions and corrections over the years since a title was originally printed. All additions and revisions by the Branch are included in this edition. Modern technology enabled us reproduce the original work in as good as, or better quality than when originally published. Most of the early titles were created on a typewriter and reproduced by Gestetner and early photocopiers. Many of the masters were digitized from these original paper masters by the Ottawa Branch. The remainder, we scanned from archived paper copies. We've cleaned up the masters as best as was possible without re-keying all of the content. The result is a collection of books that are useful and complete, but of a print quality that reflects the technology of the time in which they were originally published. The earlier titles are clearly readable but not of the same high quality print of later books. The foregoing also affects the thoroughness of search results in digital versions of some early titles. Early editions included fonts that are not recognized by modern digital search tools. We advise readers to always check indexes and alphabetical listings and not to rely solely on the digital search feature.
