About the researcher

I am a historical researcher with a Master’s Degree in Atlantic Canada Studies from St. Mary’s University, Halifax.  Coupled with my academic background and a profound fascination in cemeteries and graveyards, their iconography and the stories written upon the stones, this website reflects my love of Nova Scotia and the desire to record its ancestral history.

I also provide contractual research services. If you are in need of a researcher, please contact me with your project and we can discuss further.

Thank you!

      I would be interested in any cemetery information or photos of cemeteries/headstones that you may have relating to NS cemeteries. If you do, I can allow you access to post with my approval. Any help is most appreciated!
