This is great! Thank you for all your help!
This might have some graves, but I don't see a searchable on page method
more cemeteries in the area
about a quarter down the page is someone willing to do Minnedosa cemetery lookups ...
Older post though so may no longer be valid...let us know if still active, as email was live on page. http://www.westmanitoba.com/lookup.htm

Thanks Jeanyalogy, I will check out this cemetery url.
