What a fantastic source to revisit memories of the past history of the Central Coast. My parents are buried at Point Clare cemetery and have not been able to visit for 40 years. I contacted this site within an hour appeared a photo of my parents headstone. As much as it was sad I was appreciative of seeing them one more time.
Thank you so much for letting us know of this experience Michael. I am glad that you found the tour of value and that you found your parents’ headstone. Headstones are a valuable record of family history, apart from providing a source of comfort.
