Remains of 204 people re-buried in Quebec City after extensive research

An interesting item from Gail Dever's Genealogy à la carte blog

"Earlier this month, a special ceremony took place at Mount Hermon Cemetery in Quebec City when 80 small caskets were buried. The caskets contained the remains of 204 unknown people, likely British immigrants or first-generation Canadians, who died between 1772 and 1848."
Gail's blog post summarises an article in French Dernier repos, in the Laval university’s journal on the research which has been conducted on the remains over the past decade.

There's a free session at Laval on 4 December which will describe some to the research.
