Cynthia Simpson of Halifax is creator of Nova Scotia Cemeteries, a website that shares information (both in words and pictures) about the cemeteries of Nova Scotia.
On her about page, she writes, “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.”
Simpson maintains a blog on her site, and she writes a monthly newsletter to share her discoveries.
You can check out her latest offering (and the past four newsletters) on the Newsletter section of her blog.
Simpson has just started this project so there’s not a lot on site yet, but it looks to be a very promising source for information in the future for anyone researching family in Nova Scotia.
