THE SEARCHER GUIDE

We know that although researching cemet-ery and Service records is a fascinating task with its ever-present prospect of honouring a person who served in a war zone, it can be complex and time-consuming. 

 

On this page you can download our free Searcher Guide to make your job easier if you want to trace anyone whose grave is unmarked. It has handy information on:

  • how to search Service records

  • how to search cemetery records

  • contacts who may be able to help.

Miles from anywhere? You'd be surprised how many cemeteries are out in the bush. The Searcher Guide can help you to spend some fascinating time when you travel in South Australia. The result could be the honouring of a long-forgotten First World War veteran.

Members of The Headstone Project South Australia are always willing to provide advice to members of the public who want to undertake their own research. You do not need to be a member to benefit from this advice.
