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
In 2016 these records will also be added to 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 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 never seen our CD publications and only research their family trees in an online environment. These commercial arrangements also provide the Society with a valuable revenue stream through royalties and licensing fees.
Researchers visiting 379 Kent Street have free access to this data on these commercial sites.
