Congregational Church Cemetery Records Digitisation Project (work in progress)

In preparation for the 150th Anniversary celebrations last November, a comprehensive list and site plan of the Maungaturoto Congregational Cemetery on Gorge Road had been compiled by Albie Paton and the committee. I photographed the list and decided to digitise the records. This is a first for the Kaipara District. It's also a long process, eventually I hope it will be completed before mid-2015. I would like to thank Albie and the committee for their hard work in the compilation of the cemetery list. This is a work in progress so it will pay to check the site every couple of months for updates. You can view the homepage here.
