LEBANON— The dead are getting newfound attention at cemeteries in Lebanon.
A team of surveyors and graveyard historians met Saturday and used the latest technology to digitally map the final resting place of those buried in the Center Cemetery, which opened in 1830 on land off of Exeter Road
The work was commissioned by the Lebanon Historical Society and was coordinated by its genealogist in residence, Lindy Olewine.

It’s been done before. In the early 1930s, researcher Charles Hale headed up a Works Progress Administration project that recorded headstones of more than 2,000 cemeteries in the state.

“We’re moving the Hale headstone records into modern technology with GPS,” Olewine said.
Professional surveyor Kevin Franklin, of Griswold, and his students from Three Rivers Community College in Norwich and Capital Community College in Hartford are doing the sometimes painstaking work of recording each burial spot.
