Metro News (Canada): ‘Where is she buried?’ Government prepares database on Inuit tuberculosis graves. “After nearly 10 years of work, the federal government is preparing to release a database holding everything that is known about what happened to people who were taken south for tuberculosis treatment…. Since 2008, [Elizabeth] Logue and a team of researchers have been pouring over records from federal departments, provincial and territorial archives, church files, records from cemeteries, sanatoria and hospitals as well as from individual informants. They now have a database of records on about 4,500 Inuit who were taken south.”
