Obituary - Queensland Portal - A sub project of Obituary Portal

Obituaries are an excellent way to find information, or confirm facts about a persons life, relationships, occupation and ethnic background. Eventually this will become a portal for minor projects that will be sorted by year of death.

If you find a person on the tree, or add someone that has his/her obituary here, please copy it to their profile and add them to the project or the sub project that is appropriate and contains the obituary. ALSO please list them below under the appropriate year.

If a project has not been created yet, feel free to create it using the format shown in the blank template uploaded in docs, or request it to be created by messaging one of the collaborators listed on the right of this panel. try to add links in obituaries to profiles and ships list projects, as many early settlers have the vessel they arrived on mentioned in their obituary.

To add an obituary you will need to either request to collaborate, or, message the obituary to a collaborator. Please get involved. (keep in mind sometimes they sometimes have mistakes)
