Six Feet Under – cemetery records in Australia

Come along to the Hawkesbury Family History Group meeting on Wednesday, 11 September, from 10am to 11:30am, to hear family historian Jill Ball examine the topic ‘Six Feet Under’, a presentation on cemetery records in Australia.

After a brief discussion of the history of burial practices, Jill will explore the development of cemeteries, crematoriums and memorial parks down under. The main focus of the talk will be on resources where researchers can locate details of people who were buried or cremated in Australia since European settlement in 1788, both in print and online.

Jill Ball is a retired librarian and now a passionate genealogist who is a well-known presenter, both in Australia and internationally. She shares her passion for integrating technology with genealogy through her blogs and presentations.

Hawkesbury Central Library is located at 300 George Street, Windsor. Anyone interested in family history is welcome to attend the free presentation. There is no need to book.
