I would be very interested in seeing the Inverleigh and Shelford Headstone
transcriptions as there seems to be some missing even from when I did
them. I don't think I've even seen your mums work on either of these
two cemeteries. I would love to see it. I have been in both cemeteries
when the weather could be discribed as "cold and wet", but I really didn't
know anyone had transcripts them. My children have never forgiven me
for making them walk around Creswick cemetery in a blizzard.
Aileen, I think we are either going to have to get together to discuse your mum's
hoarded records, they sound invaluable for someone trying to sort local history
for Inverleigh and area out.

I knew there was a lot about Inverleigh there and to be honest I am stunned at what Mum had . I don't know where she got half of it from , and in some cases I don't think I want to know :-) The cemetery transcriptions I know because I transcribed a lot of them , if I was bored she gave me her car and sent me off to transcribe . Shelford cemetery in the middle of winter is not a pleasant place .
