  Copeland Cemeteries (NSW)
A research is presently taking place by the NFHS Inc. to record burials in the Copeland cemeteries.
Copeland is situated in the foothills of the Barrington Mountains, and was the site of many gold mines. 
Gold was discovered in 1876 and a thriving community was established.  Today it is a quiet township.

To ensure a comprehensive result for this research, assistance is being sought.  If knowledge of an ancestor having lived or was buried at Copeland is known, could you please email details to nfhsinc@gmail.com, or post to

    School Photo Project
    The year 2002 saw the commencement of our School Photo Project. Anyone who browses through this collection is amazed at the number of images and names already collected. People are asked to contribute, with as many names as possible, either through the mail, (photocopies, please don't post originals) or scans to us directly by e-mail any school photos they might have, along with those of their children, and any other relations or friends, to the Society. Personal visitors to our library can lend originals and a photocopy will be made and the photo returned as soon as possible. 

    A file containing copies of class photos, groups, buildings and activities and information for each school will go towards the formation of this great resource. All schools will be covered:- public and private, pre-schools, infants, primary and secondary, special schools (e.g. hospital schools); and those now non-existent as well as those where the name has been changed. 

    Thank you to all who have been able to contribute so far to this project.  In 2003 the scope was widened to include photos sourced from the whole of Australia and from pre-school to tertiary level. So please keep hunting out the old school photos, as well as the new.
