Family History Enquiries

The St John’s Cemetery Project is under construction, which means the answers you seek may not be included in the database…yet. In the not-too-distant future, the complete online database will enable you to independently solve your family history mysteries as that is one of the database’s major reasons for being. Until then, though, due to the size of this undertaking, in the interests of getting the database complete the team unfortunately cannot assist individuals with family history research.

So, if you do encounter difficulties tracing an ancestor on your own, the database team recommend that you seek research assistance from a qualified professional genealogist or stay tuned to the St John’s Cemetery, Parramatta Facebook page where the Director of the project will keep everyone updated on new content added to the database. You can also join the new Facebook group Friends of St John’s Cemetery, Parramatta to see if other researchers with an interest in and/or ancestral connection to the cemetery can help you with your research.
