Photographing for Family History Research


We all know the important part that headstones can play in family history research. They can be a treasure trove of information for the family historian.

Unfortunately though, we don’t all have time or just simply live too far away to be able to track down graves and photograph them.

Friends of Rookwood now offers this service for you.

Photographs of headstones are now available to our members (and non-members).

The cost is $5 per grave.

The images are available in hard copy or digitally.

Please allow 4 weeks for the photos as it is weather dependent.

If you are interested in this please contact Julie Rusten (Secretary)on 02 8678 7496 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Please provide full name of the person to be photographed, their religion if known and approx. year of death.
