About Goomeri Monumental Inscriptions

Overview

This compilation provides 412 photographs covering all headstones and plaques present in September 2008 in the Goomeri cemetery,except for two red marble headstones whose inscriptions were not readable in the photographs. It includes an index to the names of the approximately 450 subjects of all memorial inscriptions. The index is searchable by name, year of death, year of birth, and other details with QFHSdatasearch, with search results linked to the corresponding photographs for display.

The photographs show details of former residents and others associated with the district, with dates of death recorded on the monumental inscription ranging from 1913 to 2008. The index is a valuable resource for family history research in the area, especially as time and vandalism take their toll on the headstones. As well as confirming or showing possible errors in the burial register, the monumental inscriptions often show family relationships for three or four generations, including names of people not buried in the grave.

Details can include parents, birthplace and date, marriage information, titles and honours.

The index to the photographs includes (where present)

  • Surname of the subject
  • Given names
  • Title
  • Date of birth
  • Date of death
