Do you have ancestors buried in Canada?
I came across Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on interment.com which lists some Muslims that are buried there (note the 'some'). Although one or two did sound like Hindu names the gravestones were recorded as having Quranic verses on them.

These names were contributed by Marty Byzewski.
It would be useful for researchers to locate other Muslim graves for interment.com and findagrave.com. So we need more people volunteering this information to these sites by visting graves and transcribing.
