This CD contains an index and transcriptions of the monumental inscriptions at the Melbourne General Cemetery.
The background behind this CD starts with teams of members of the Genealogical Society of Victoria (GSV) and the Australian Institute of Genealogical Studies (AIGS) transcribed the monumental inscriptions in the Melbourne General Cemetery. The GSV then indexed all the names and published it on CD.
This index contains the date of death and the age of the deceased if on the inscription. Each name points to the full transcription. The index contains about 119,600 names indexed from 42,500 memorials which is in a searchable database which also contains burial plot identification (where known) and a map of the cemetery.
