CD-ROM LAUNCH

GREGSON & WEIGHT FUNERAL DIRECTORS

CALOUNDRA, MAROOCHYDORE & NAMBOUR

INDEX TO RECORDS 1971 – 2010

 Caloundra Family History Research Inc. is launching its latest indexing project on Thursday 19th May 2011 at its 18th Birthday Party from 1pm.  The group’s Patron, State Member for Caloundra, Mark McArdle, will officiate at the Guide Hut in Arthur Street, Caloundra.  Guest speakers will include Messrs Royce Gregson, Dick Allchin (RSL Memorial Walk) and Don Wilkie (Coastguard Memorial Wall).  A celebratory cake will be enjoyed by members and guests at afternoon tea, after being cut by Club President Jocelyn Morgan and Mark McArdle.

An important asset for researchers, the index covers close to 20,000 entries and details all funerals conducted by this major firm of funeral directors.  It includes the full name, alias, age at time of death, and funeral location, together with the addresses of the cemeteries and crematoria mentioned in the index.  There is also reference to Gregson & Weight’s records for further details, if required by researchers.

Cost of the CD-ROM is $30 pre-launch; $35 after 20th May 2011 (including postage & packing in Australia).  Please email any orders to the group at caloundrafamilyres@y7mail.com.  Enquiries can be directed to Valerie Thornton on 075437 3879.
