Burial Records and Unmarked Graves
Manning Wallamba Family History Society Inc. Taree is currently working on a project to record graves on private property and unmarked graves in all local cemeteries
The upgrading and recording of cemeteries has shown the Society just how many unmarked and unknown graves and burial sites there must be in the area. A large percentage of names found in the NSW Death Register Indexes for the area do not appear in records held by the Councils, the cemetery indexes or other records available. To ensure that the Manning Wallamba Family History Society Inc. Burial Records are a comprehensive list of all buried in this area we are asking anyone who knows of unmarked graves, graves on private property, placement of ashes or burial sites to provide any details they can by completing the forms available in the Family History section of the Greater Taree City Library or from this site: Download Forms to Register a Burial/Cremation here (pdf format 10k)
Pioneer Register 3 (pre 1900) - Again this book will require a lot
of volunteer work and all the help we are able to get is appreciated.

Research Data Base: This is another new project which we have undertaken which incorporates compiling a data base of all pioneer names of the area. All the help we are able to get is appreciated.
