Ootischenia Doukhobor Cemetery
SGRC Lead Researcher: Ian Parfitt
SGRC Interns: Barry McLane, Christie Rajtar
Funders: Ootischenia Doukhobor Graveyard Committee
The SGRC worked with community members to undertake a beautification project at the Ootischenia Graveyard near Castlegar, BC. SGRC Interns Christie Rajtar and Barry McLane completed a GPS survey of the headstones, as the headstones were removed to allow for machine grading and grass seeding of the Cemetery grounds. Using the collected GPS survey data, the SGRC provided the Cemetery with a headstone relocation plan, to ensure that the headstones were replaced in an orderly and accurate manner. An updated grave registry and site map were also provided.
