Queensland genealogy group, the Toowoomba and Darling Downs Family History Society are looking for anyone who has family buried in the Drayton and Toowoomba cemetery as they’re currently updating their cemetery book, and offering those that have ancestors buried there, to submit their stories.
The first volume of “Drayton and Toowoomba Cemetery: Our Backyard” was published in December 2009 with volume two in 2013.
President of the Toowoomba and Darling Downs Family History Society, Marie Green said the next volume was planned to print in early 2017.
Submissions should be in story form and contain a maximum of 1000 words. Photos are welcome and need to be at least 300dpi, and sent as separate files.
“We believe publications of this type preserve the history of those who have come before us whether they were buries 100 years ago or more recently”.
By submitting an entry into the next publication, past of your research will be availble for generations to come.
