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.
First published in 1984, this book comprises transcriptions of tombstones located in the Young General Cemetery in Canberra, recorded by members of the Heraldry and Genealogy Society of Canberra. This is the 3rd edition published in 2007.
On revisiting the cemetery in 2004, it was found that a number of those which had their details recorded in the first edition, have since suffered deterioration or vandalism, and in some cases are no longer standing. Thanks to the Heraldry and Genealogy Society of Canberra members, we are fortunate that there is still a record, even in the memorial is damaged beyond reading, or repair.
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.
