Other Cemetery Resources

To Do

  • Cemeteries currently being recorded (photographed, transcribed, researched (volunteers to assist welcome).
Drouin, Victoria
Photography complete (monumental section only). Transcription begun. Bech-2 05:16, 6 November 2016 (EST)
  • Create WikiTree profiles for all people transcribed
A completed table will include links to WikiTree profiles and direct links to the photos of gravestones. The profile created can include other sources of information as well as biographical details of the person.
  • GPS locations of graves needed
A dedicated GPS tracker can be used. For those with an android phone or pad there is an App called GPS Logger which can record the locations to a file which can be added to photos later with other software like GPSPrune which is a Java program which can run on most platforms. There are also cameras with GPS facility that can tag photos at the same time as they are taken. For more information or assistance contact Paul Bech.

  • Checking of transcription information
Other people are required to assist in double-checking the validity of data entered to ensure accuracy.

Cemeteries to be recorded, but not started

This space is to record interest in recording a cemetery, mainly to avoid duplication of effort. Contact Paul Bech to be listed here with the cemeteries you plan to record and if you would have an interest in getting together with others as a joint activity.

  • Gippsland region
I have an interest in recording cemeteries in the Gippsland region of Victoria and I am interested in joining others with a similar interest.
Paul Bech: Bech-2 21:31, 28 April 2014 (EDT)
  • NSW region
I make irregular visits to NSW and I would be interested in joining others to document cemeteries.
Paul Bech: Bech-2 23:55, 27 May 2014 (EDT)

I'm interested in recording information from some of the out-of-the-way cemeteries in Southern Tasmania and, in a couple of years, in East Gippsland. How are new cemetery pages started?

Activities; What you can do

Become a Project member. Until such time as there are sufficient members of this project, discussion will come under the auspices of the Australia Project. If you are able to photograph, record, transcribe, research, etc you are very welcome. Perhaps you may be able to get together with others to share in this family tree activity. You might start with a cemetery near you.


The leader of this sub-project is Paul Bech. If you would like to participate, please do the following:

  1. Add cemeteries to your list of followed tags.
  2. Ask Paul to award you the Cemeterist badge.
