If you've spent hours searching cemeteries for family links, this talk will describe how technology can turn a fruitless search into a fruitful one … and without having to leave home!

The Sandgate Cemetery cyber project enables visitors to view all 67,000 graves within the 16-hectare necropolis. With 5000 unique visitors a month, the project, launched in September 2012, provides a grave's Google Earth co-ordinates, which can be transferred to a smart phone. 

"We have been contacted by people from around the globe with information about those buried at Sandgate," Terry St George, creator of both websites, said.

"The WWI project will build on that. There's no reason why we can't do similar things with WWII and the Vietnam war."
