Partial Transcription of Atlantic Mine Cemetery  
Copyright 2001
Linda Therkelsen all rights reserved with help from Alicia Marshall.

This is the oldest part of the cemetery.  The fields include translated dates of birth and death, since the majority of the engravings are in Finnish.  Dates may be in Day/Month/ Year format or Month/Day/Year. The complete transcription for each stone is included, but not the translations for the mottos on the stones.

The locations are based on a map that I made myself, so don't necessarily match whatever the caretaker might have; he has records from 1920 on.  If people want to find them based on my locations numbers, they will maybe have to e-mail me.

Most of the stones face east, so it is pretty much going to be east to west, and I am also making a list of traditional walk through transcription.  A tree had fallen in the cemetery, covering a few stones, so that will have to be added/corrected in the future.
