Hi Annette,
Probably a bit rude to ask for assistance in my first post, but I've just found that my wife's Great Aunt and Uncle are buried at Moonta. Is there a chance you could note the inscription of this grave for me - or if there's a chance of a picture......?

That will be fine. Looks like our trip will now be over Easter but I have added it to my list. Will be happy to take photos for you too. It's a lovely cemetery and is very well maintained and cared for. Will pm you when I have been.

Hello Annette, thank you so much for such a kind offer. Would it please be possible for you to look for Francis Raymond (born 1824 died 1900) and his wife Eliza Ann Raymond (born 1830 died 1910) I understand that they died in Kadina. Anything about the Raymond family in this grave yard would be really appreciated. Thank you.

Kind regards - Linda

Hi Annette - I dont suppose any of those cemeteries are near Quorn, Wirrabara and Mt Brown?
I think one of those towns is almost a ghost town now.

Just seen this thread. This is a very cheeky request!

I am the research manager for the One Name Society for the surname EAST. I know some members have had EAST relatives in Kadina and Moonta. Would it be too much to ask if you just snap any EAST names you come accross? Please don't go out of your way to look for them - I was thinking, if you pass any while you are walking round it would be great to have them.

Please say if this is too much for you!

Will keep a look out for them Anne and will take photos of any I find. Wish me luck!

Hi Kristine
This is quite an old thread! I have retired from being research manager for the EastFHS but they are still going strong. I know they do have details of East families from the Kadina area. You can find the website here http://www.eastfhs.org/
I am sure they would be pleased to hear from you!
