Websites with relevence to Western Australia
And all so far from homeThere are many more Goldfields and Murchison records and photographs still to be added Updates will be posted to various Newsgroups as we add more data. Also I would like to add that this website could not happen without the patient research assistance from my friend Moya Sharp in Kalgoorlie and the help intitially from Dot Wells to get the site started. Thanks must go to Jill Heather for all her years of research of the hard to find graves and cemeteries in the Northern Goldfields and from the present "Web Mum" Carolyn Harris with her huge contribution to turn my data into this magical world of website building.

The Perth DPS was originally formed by people who communicated on a bulletin-board service which closed early last year.
Then Murdoch University's Teaching and Learning Centre came to the rescue, offering to host a web site and a DPS chat mailing list.
Many of those involved are in the WA Genealogy Society too, but the DPS has always had a more on-line focus.
