Absolutely devastating to think no alternative can be sought…….what the hell are we doing to our history?

I should be deeply upset if their graves were interfered with. I live in Cudgen, far north NSW and only get to Adelaide about every two to three years. I should like to be notified of any movements in this area. Marion Gardner, 21 Clarke Street, Cudgen 2487

Even the small grants to local family histories and museums have gone. It is a desperate situation in so many places. If everyone does a little, much can be achieved.

What about our history and heritage and our pioneers. South australia will have no history. We have plenty of land and space j this country so no need to destroy a cemetery. This in incomprehensible madness

The 3 main websites used here – Findmypast, Thegenealogist and Ancestry – have different sets of parish records available, both transcriptions and images. These subscriptions have saved me the time and cost of travelling to Local Record Centres around the country.

However you choose to active the free one when you wish, so you can do so when your current one runs out.

Comment on 100 Million Reasons to Check Out the “Find A Grave” Cemetery Website by Alona Tester http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2014/09/100-million-reasons-to-check-out-the-find-a-grave-cemetery-website/comment-page-1/#comment-814625 Sun, 08 Feb 2015 21:07:40 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=16727#comment-814625 Stan, you might like to send this request direct to Find A Grave. However if you’re after a photograph, you could try getting in touch with the cemetery themselves:

http://www.aca.sa.gov.au/Ourcemeteries/WestTerraceCemetery.aspx

They do have an index online, but I didn’t find your Olivia Lockyer listed.

Comment on Tasmania Birth, Death & Marriage Records 1803-1933 Now Online by Alona Tester http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/2013/04/tasmania-birth-death-marriage-records-1803-1933-now-online/comment-page-1/#comment-814622 Sun, 08 Feb 2015 20:53:24 +0000 http://www.gouldgenealogy.com/?p=12829#comment-814622 Gillian, if you look at the ‘combined list’ you’ll find that the baptisms and burials do go up to 1933. However the marriages only go to 1899. But also not ALL areas are included for all of Tassie yet.

You may be interested to know that just a couple of weeks ago findmypast.com.au have added the Tasm BDMs to their website. You might find the details you’re looking for there:

I am looking for a death certificate for 1920. Cheers and thanks Gillian
