Croydon Cemetery project

Ewen and Jana Croydon Cemetery

During a recent joint thematic mapping trip I was introduced to Croydon by Dr Jo Wills (Cairns MDO). Jo has been working with Jana Kahabka (Croydon Shire Council) on a number of collection management and museum development projects.  Jana is also mapping the local cemetery using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to document unmarked graves.  This information will then be linked to genealogy programs and locational databases. This led us to wondering if objects, whose donors are now buried in the Croydon cemetery, could also be linked in to the database.  Does anyone know of any such examples?
