In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
In 1977 the Heraldry and Genealogy Society of Canberra published 'Monumental Inscriptions Australian Capital Territory and Jervis Bay'. This was a listing of tombstone and other monumental transcriptions that the Society had recorded. They state that the transcriptions are arranged with the cemeteries in alphabetical order, together with maps accompanying them.
The above is all still applicable for the second edition, but also included a number of sites not included in the first edition, where there is clear evidence such as a memorial plaque or marker. Also included for some of the smaller burial grounds are lists of 'known' burials, as well as being brought up-to-date.
Please note the transcripts are not a word-for-word transcript. General wording such as "in memory of" or "rest in peace" has been omitted. All names, dates and other relevant genealogical information has been included.
