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 of monumental inscriptions from the
Goomeri Cemetery in Queensland contains a database of 444
entries, and 421 photographs which cover all headstones and plaques that
were in the cemetery in 2008. Each database entry is linked to the
relevant photograph.


The material on the CD is a valuable
resource for family history research in the district. The photographs
show details of former residents and others associated with the district, with dates of death recorded on the
headstone or plaque ranging from 1913 to 2008. Often monumental
inscriptions show relationships of 3 or 4 generations. Extra details
that you may find can include parents, birth place and date, marriage
information, and titles and honours.
