Commercial partnerships

The SAG has entered into arrangements with several commercial companies to place selected data on their websites.

Rookwood, Waverley & South Head and Macquarie Park Cemetery transcriptions have been licensed to  FindMyPast.com.au

From the end of 2015 these records will also begin to appear on Ancestry.com.au

There have been no amendments, deletions or updates to the data given to these commercial partners snce we published it on CD-ROM. These records are headstone inscriptions (monumental inscriptions) only and do not contain burial register information unless that was supplied to us by family members during the transcription project.

Data extracted from AGCI Volume 2 - the NSW Government Gazettes 1832-1863 was also licensed to FindMyPast.com.au in 2015.

Commercial partnerships of this kind not only ensure that the work done by our volunteers to create these records for us continue to be utilised by researchers around the world, many of whom have only researched their family trees in an online environment.  These arrangements also ensure the Society continues to receive a valuable revenue stream from these projects.

Under these licenses researchers visiting 379 Kent Street have free access to this data on these commercial sites.
