The Place for Local and Family History
on the Western Australian Goldfields


"Thank you so much for your recent email, I have been looking for the burial place of my Great Uncle for years and now you have found him listed in the Wiluna Cemetery but under a slightly different spelling.  Thought I would never find him!"

- Claire, Tasmaina

"I came upon you site by chance after doing a search for my family name.  Not only did I find several members of my family I didn't know of but I was also able to download photographs of where they lived and was able to read about the places as well.  Wonderful site."

- Alex, NSW

"You have now solved a family mystery of what happened to my Grandfather's younger brother after he came to the Goldfields and was not heard of again very much appreciated."

- Potts Family

"Your site is wonderful, I started browsing through the various 'towns' section where my ancestors lived and realised the wealth of information they contained.  Not just birth deaths and marriages but electoral rolls, employment and even social activities. Keep up the good work!"

- Angela, Alice Springs

"Moya, I would like to thank you for finding my 3 x Gt Aunt for me, you have solved a family mystery of nearly 20yrs standing, much appriciated.


You are absolutely amazing, I really appreciate your response and am thrilled to know where my ancestor is now buried.  If and when you visit the cemetery next, I would really love a photo of his headstone, along with the location within the cemetery.
