    1. [UPPER-CANADA] City of Waterloo - Cemetery Bylaw.
    2. Murray Pletsch
    3. Steve Fulton UE‎ to The Ontario Genealogical Society Offical responce from The City of Waterloo The following is a general response to the important matter of governing photo imaging in a cemetery. The bylaw is not a ban on photography or Videotaping. The bylaw provides for anyone completing this line of recording to seek permission from the Manager before completing any photography or Videotaping. The bylaw is similar to other cemeteries that have similar language. Ours was adopted in reference to Mount Pleasant Group Cemeteries in Toronto which is one of the largest cemetery operators in Ontario. The intent of the bylaw is to provide some recourse in the event someone uses images or recordings of monuments in the cemetery for either financial or personal gain, or uses the images in a manner that contravenes the decorum or integrity of the cemetery image or standing. The Cemetery would never stand in the way of families sharing images to other family and friends in a way of remembrance or tribute. Similarly, the Cemetery appreciates the good work of those in the field of genealogical archiving and research and would support efforts to these beneficial ends. It is not the Cemetery’s intent to supervise or oversee the general photo imaging of the memorials therein, to do so would be outside of the staffing capacity of its current makeup. Therefore, it is likely, even expected, that the practice of photo imaging will continue on in much the same way it has been practiced for years in our cemeteries. To this end, most groups or individuals wishing to participate in this important function have come into the office and sought permission and have always been granted permission under general guidelines of respect to families. Legal review of these bylaws was completed and no issues were found with any new bylaws or updated ones.

    3. I have forwarded this email to all of my genealogy contacts, in case they aren't aware of this suggested bylaw change. Today I also sent an email to Bereavement Authority of Ontario Email: info@thebao.ca. Thank-you Murray for letting us know about this concerning information. -----Original Message----- From: ONTARIO [mailto:ontario-bounces+jbflint=worldline.ca@rootsweb.com] On Behalf Of Murray Pletsch Sent: August-05-17 10:08 AM To: ontario@rootsweb.com; ca-ont-cemeteries@rootsweb.com; northern-ontario-cemeteries@ec2-52-32-5-110.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com; upper-canada@rootsweb.com Subject: [ONTARIO] Ontario Cemetery Bylaw. Forwarded with permission of originator. Cause for Concern... It has come to our attention that the City of Waterloo is considering implementing a bylaw that would ban photography at all municipal cemeteries. The proposed bylaw: "Photography: No person shall cause or permit the taking of any photographic or video imaging within any Cemetery except with the prior permission of the Manager." This would mean that as of September 1st, no one would be allowed to take photographs or video in any municipally owned cemetery operated by the City of Waterloo without prior permission. In other words, you could not take a photograph or video of a headstone you own without prior permission. Or a photograph / video of a loved ones headstone. Or request that someone take a photograph / video on your behalf without prior permission. The bylaw does not provide guidelines for granting or denying permission, only that the manager would decide. Approval of this bylaw would also set a precedent for other municipalities in Ontario to follow. It would have a major impact on genealogy, and not just in terms of projects like ours (think of the number of cemetery photographs you currently use in your personal genealogy research!) There are also multiple businesses and organizations that use cemetery photographs, including the government. Luckily there is time to stop this bylaw from being approved, and your help is need to make this happen. The bylaw changes were submitted to The Bereavement Authority of Ontario for approval. The BAO are the ones who ultimately decide if cemetery bylaws will be approved. Before September 1st, please take a moment and send them a polite written message to let them know what you think about this bylaw and how it would impact you personally.
