Cataraqui Cemetery Now a National Historic Site

Cataraqui Cemetery, 1891

Congratulations to Cataraqui Cemetery for being designated as a National Historic Site of Canada yesterday.  It truly is a national treasure, and we are proud to be the repository for their historic records. Measuring in at 7.8 metres of records, the Cataraqui Cemetery Company fonds is a gem in itself.  Dating back to 1853, the records include many interesting items such as a register of lot owners (1856-1897) and various maps of the cemetery.
