BENDIGO CEMETERY ARCHIVE

Bendigo Family History Group has recently catalogued some 38,000 images and listed over 55,000 interments from the Bendigo Public Cemetery.
 
The first burial on the cemetery register was in 1858. The cemetery was gazetted in 1875 and was originally known as Back Creek Cemetery.

These valuable research records are available on CD for $40, or optionally on a 16Gb USB key for $45 (plus $7 postage & handling for each within Australia). These and other early Bendigo records can be ordered through the "Sales" page of the Bendigo Family History Group's web site.
 
 
OUR ANZAC CENTENARY BOOK

The latest publication by the AIGS, 'For God King and Country, They Answered the Call: a Salute to the Blackburn, Mitcham, Nunawading and Vermont Volunteers' by Shirley Devery, has now been released!

It's available for purchase from the AIGS Library for only $20.00.

Please ring the Office on 9877 3789 for postage costs.
 
 
 
August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War (1914 - 1918). Across the globe, the war's centenary will be marked by millions of people, in places of special importance and in ways that are personally meaningful to them.
 
Across Victoria, local communities will be able to plan their own memorials and to share in the stories of those who served, through the Victorian Government's ANZAC Centenary web site.
