City of Peterborough Media Release – December 6, 2018, Peterborough, ON --
The City of Peterborough Geomatics/Mapping Division, the Heritage Preservation Office and Little Lake Cemetery Co. announce the updates made to an interactive web mapping genealogy tool and a new Little Lake Cemetery Story Map which tells the story of the cemetery.
The interactive map allows the viewer to explore over 5,500 marked gravesites and provides information on the oldest name and date identified on the monument, a visual location, and a photograph of the marker. With the help of Young Canada Works supported student interns the map has been expanded and enhanced to include the location and information on over 10,000 unmarked graves within the cemetery. It is the hope of the City of Peterborough and Little Lake Cemetery that future projects will expand the numbers of graves recorded and the narratives presented on the story map.
