Niagara Historian Finds Life in the Stories of the Dead
On July 2nd and July 9th, my videos produced with the Niagara Falls Museum about historic Drummond Hill Cemetery were released on the Museum's YouTube channel. Both videos examine some of the common symbols seen at the cemetery and some interpretations of what they mean. I tried to keep the explanations free of any jargon (e.g. "Woman leaning on a gravestone with an urn on top" instead of "Pedestaled urn". I hope you enjoy them!
