dc.description.abstractThe 19th Century Tombstone Database project received funding from the Federal Summer Youth Employment scheme in the summer of 1982 and led by Dr. David W. Rupp, Classics Department, Brock University. Students were hired to collect and record data on existing 19th century burials in various cemeteries in the Niagara region. The data was collected and presented in the form of data summary forms of persons, tombstone sketches, photographs of tombstones, maps. Since the completion of this project in 1982 a number of the tombstones have disappeared, been vandalized or suffered environmental conditions that make them illegible. These records were donated to the Brock University Archives upon Dr. Rupp’s retirement from Brock University.en_US
