Kuusamo Cemetery, Alberta, Canada


Finnish gravestone names were extracted from a videotape of a cemetery video shoot by Derek Hahto in Nov. 1997. Some, not many, surnames may have been missed because of unfamiliarity with Finnish names. Also a few grave markers were missed during the videotaping segment, due to site overgrowth.
