I went on a road trip with my husband's family to Augathella, Queensland, in 2019. His mother and some aunts/uncles were born there. One baby and one toddler died during the years the family lived there. The city council were brilliant in trying to help find their graves but no records remained. I asked whether we could place a memorial at the cemetery where we knew they were somewhere buried, they suggested a park bench memorial. This memorial to Toby & Lilian Loy in now on wikitree and find-a-grave so they too can be honoured. The care and service shown by the amazing people at the Murweh Council inspired me to give something back to that community so my ongoing project is to link up the family members buried at the Augathella Cemetery both on find-a-grave and wikitree. Funnily enough, while researching I discovered that I too have distant family members buried there. Like a jigsaw puzzle, it is such an adventure and so satisfying having pieces fall into place in this small country town. The connection is even greater - though a Presbyterian family, one of mum's uncles became Catholic and his daughter became a nun - her first posting was Augathella.
