Whitefish Public Cemetery, Denison Township, Sudbury, Ontario, Canada


The information for the cemetery was collected and compiled by Lewella Parker, H.B.A. (Geography) in May 2000. This data was used for an undergraduate thesis as well as a book, which was prepared for the Finnish Canadian Historical Society, Sudbury entitled "Finnish Genealogy: Volume I". Mr. Arnold Niemiaho was a volunteer for the study and is also the contact person for the Finnish Canadian Historical Society. A copy of the obituary of the deceased may be obtained from:
