Description

Cemetery has been mapped and transcribed by University of Maine at Presque Isle. See www.fairmountcemeterypresqueisle.com, and click on the "explore cemetery" tab. Funded by two Maine Economic Improvement Fund (MEIF) grants awarded to a research team led by Drs. Mike Sonntag, Chunzeng Wang, Lynn Eldershaw, and Kimberly Sebold, the University of Maine at Presque Isle has conducted burial data collection and GIS mapping and data integration of the Fairmount Cemetery since summer 2009. There are a total of 10 students who have also been involved in the project helping with cemetery data collection and database development, as well as data online publication. Professor JoAnne Wallingford is principal supervisor for database management system development and online publication. The project is the first large-scale, comprehensive cemetery mapping with applications of advanced GPS, GIS, and web GIS technologies in Maine. The database serves as a cultural resource for conservation, interment planning, maintenance of grave markers and monuments, and management of facilities, grounds, and records. The project is expected to have direct economic impact on the region in terms of availability to and attraction of tourism, while it provides the public with a solid database for genealogical and historic research. The project has fostered a fruitful connection between faculty, students, and community associations, most notably, the Fairmont Cemetery Association and the Northern Maine Historical Society. Participation of students in the project has gained them hands-on experience that has enhanced their academic experience and employable skills. The alliance between students, faculty, and community serves as a good example of service-learning and community-based research. Students who have participated in the project since summer 2009 include: Megan Pryor, Sherry Cole, Ashlee Pryor, Robert Baldwin, John Donley, Brittany Hickey, Letian Zheng, Nolan Gagnon, Zicong Zhou, Gary Parent, Lenka Rambouskova, and Walt Guerette.
