The Cemetery DVD Project

The DVD Project transcribes name information from various sources (headstones, memorials, registers etc) and publishes this annually as an Index in DVD form. The Index is searchable by name, cemetery etc; DVD 16 published in March 2018 contains 929,529 names from 3011 cemeteries.

In addition to Cemetery Recording efforts at the various GSSA Branches, we have a large number of individuals who record data and assist with data processing.
