Tasmanian Family History Society Inc.
Cemetery HeadstonesThe Tasmanian Family History Society Inc. has transcribed many of the headstones surviving in cemeteries around Tasmania. These transcriptions are held by the five branches around the State - Burnie, Launceston, Hobart, Huon and Mersey. Except for Cornelian Bay and Carr Villa, these transcriptions have been indexed and published as Tombstone and Memorial Inscriptions of Tasmania (TAMIOT). The fiche or CD-ROM can be purchased from TFHS Inc. Click HERE for details. The 800 sites that these inscriptions have been taken from are also listed on the TFHS Inc. web site.
The five branches are currently capturing digital images of all those surviving headstones that are listed in TAMIOT plus new headstones erected since TAMIOT was published. Some of these digital images are already on the eHeritage web site as thumbnail images. High resolution images are available from the respective branches.
The Hobart Branch currently has images for Sorell, Oatlands, Richmond, Bruny Island and other Southern Tasmanian areas, and these are available as follows - Transcriptions $5 for the first, and $2.50 for subsequent queries which can be included in the same letter; and photos on A5 paper $20, and $8 for additional copies. All prices PLUS p&p.
