GENERAL COMMENTS FOR THIS NEWSPAPER
The data has been supplied by the Griffith Genealogical and Historical Society, and was already being indexed according to their own format before the Ryerson Index existed.Consequently, some of the information normally included in Ryerson is missing.
Neither age nor location details were recorded in the index created by the GG&HS, although by cross-matching different types of notices (eg death and in memoriam), sometimes an age can be calculated when a birth date is given.
(Note - it is a relatively common practice in country areas to publish an obituary without the matching notice.)
The actual text of the records extracted from The Area News will appear in the next version of "Riverina Cemeteries" CD-ROM, available from the GG&HS. The text is also available by contacting the GG&HS via their website, at http://users.dragnet.com.au/~ggahs.
Note - some individual dates within each range may not yet have been indexed. Click on the Dates Indexed button above for precise details.
