Menzies Cemetery – grave tales

Just to let you know what I am working on at the moment. I have been doing a complete review of every page on the Outback Family History web site (all 468 pages) and have been making notes on:-
1. Things that need to be checked
2. Photos not working of needing replacement with a better one.
3. Additional names to be added.
4. Spellings checked.

Its a very big job but something that needs to be done each year. Fortunately people often let me know of errors beforehand so that they can be corrected.

The biggest project I have coming is the addition of the headstone photos where available, for the Boulder Cemetery and the launch of the Westonia Cemetery page.  I am starting with the Menzies Cemetery for no other reason than this has the most to be done. Following are some photos of one of the graves there and a photo of the person who is in the grave:-

    Hi Moya – I have a few relatives buried in Menzies, my family were the Sawyers and I could perhaps help you with photos etc. Sharon.
