Sleuthing scientist set to restore identity of Bytown brother, sister ‘lost in time’

Researchers from the Canadian Museum of History are close to confirming the identities of two children who were buried nearly 200 years ago — but lost over time — in a pioneer cemetery in what is now downtown Ottawa.

If successful, it will be the first such successful identification from the former Barrack Hill Cemetery, the future Ottawa’s earliest non-Indigenous burial ground, located near today’s Parliament Hill.
