This CD provides photographs of 145 headstones in the Ravenswood cemetery in November 2003. It includes an index to the 196 names mentioned in the monumental inscriptions. The index can be searched on name and year with QFHSdatasearch, with search results linked to the corresponding photographs for display via a button on the result panel.

Ravenswood, located about 120 kilometres south-west of Townsville, was founded in 1868 following the discovery of gold and was an extremely prosperous gold mining centre with a population of up to 5000. The 'Hotels and Publicans Index' published by QFHS shows more than 50 hotels in the 1870s. Today, it is almost a ghost-town though it still has many reminders of the past - mullock heaps, tall chimneys, discarded machinery and the cemetery.

Headstone remaining in the cemetery in 2003 record details of former residence from 1872 to recent time, with 2001 the date of the most recent burial recorded on the monumental inscriptions. Though there are many burials unmarked by a headstone these photographs provide a valuable insight into the lives of those there.

QFHSdatasearch is a generic interface designed to search genealogy databases and developed by the Queensland Family History Society Inc. This version features field oriented and keyword searches, Boolean selection, sorting, wildcard searches and, when applicable, links between search results and images held in pdf files of the source records.
