About the Project

The Death in St. Lawrence County Project (DSLC) is an interdisciplinary project that aims to document, map, and digitize all of the 200+ cemeteries in St. Lawrence County in upstate New York. DSLC involves academics and officers from various upstate New York institutions and government agencies (St. Lawrence University, St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services, Canton Town Historian’s Office, etc.). Together we are using the information we gather from local cemeteries to better understand life and death in the region.
