Monumental Inscriptions – Australia and Beyond

by Glenda Dickson on April 5th, 2015

A search today on billiongraves.com showed up 9 graves with the surname McFarlane in the Wodonga Cemetery in Victoria. This represents the monumental inscriptions in this cemetery that have so far been photographed and transcribed by volunteers. In this particular cemetery there are currently 147 graves awaiting transcription. Anyone can volunteer to transcribe the data via their computer at home.

If any of the following names ring a bell in your family history, visit the website to view further details, including a photograph of the inscription, map showing the cemetery and GPS co-ordinates.

Note that the following list includes two females with the maiden name McFarlane, who are actually buried under the surname in brackets.

Mcfarlane, Alice  – 1938
Mcfarlane, Frederick Malcolm  – 1922
McFARLANE, Erskine William – 1970
McFARLANE, George 1895 – 1977
McFarlane, Charles – 1916
McFarlane, Emily Charlotte (Ellis) 1860 – 1953
McFarlane, Eskine William Charles 1884 – 1927
McFarlane, Mary Urquhart (Chauncey) 1898-1992

As the website name suggests, this online respository is aiming to transcribe more than a billion graves, worldwide.

Visit billiongraves.com and have a look for yourself.

    HI, I’ve been using http://www.findagrave.com to locate MI’s. It is pretty user-friendly and you can support the volunteer system by paying a little money to “look after” records of your ancestors.

    Thanks for the idea. I did a search for my Curry in Australia surname study and found 146 entries in Australian cemeteries.
