Queensland is losing cemetery headstones at an alarming rate - from weathering, deterioration and old age, lack of maintenance, spreading mould, or most distressing of all from the lamentable actions of vandals. It is therefore fitting that the Queensland Family History Society volunteers, are committed to preserving this heritage for future generations. By transcribing epitaphs (monumental inscriptions) and photographing the gravestones of these ancestors they are actively recording family history, not only for those researching now, but those in the future.
This CD consolidates into a single collection of files, inscriptions on headstones and plaques in ten cemeteries in the Beenleigh, Redland Bay and Cleveland districts, as transcribed, indexed and compiled for publication between 1995 and 2002 by Rosemary and Eric Kopittke. The material has been previously released in printed and/or microfiche form by the Queensland Family History Society in eight separate publications.
The ten cemeteries covered are Alberton, Beenleigh, Bethania Lutheran, Cleveland, Eagleby, Mount Cotton (Cornubia), Mount Cotton (St Pauls Lutheran) Pimpama Island, Redland Bay (Serpentine Road) and Redland Bay (Gordon Road). Some are still active - others closed many years ago.
As well as inscriptions, each file includes a map of each cemetery showing headstone positions and an index to all names referred to on the inscriptions. Together the entries refer to approximately 9,800 people and the files represent about 800 pages of inscriptions, maps and indexes.
