Good to hear thanks Cando.
That took at least 2 years I think.

I wonder how the digitisation of Melbourne General Cemetery records is going.  That seems to have been in process for a long time too.

Anyhow, all wonderful when it happens. ;D

MGC was meant to be online ages ago.  Can't remember the actual date.
