On Saturday 22 August 2015, the South East Witwatersrand Family History Society started with the photographing of the headstones in the Primrose Cemetery, Germiston.
The Society has been a staunch supporter of the GSSA Cemetery Recording project for the past 25 years, and their small group of recorders have so far submitted over 65,000 headstone records for the DVD and nearly 40,000 headstone photos for eGSSA Photo Project. In 2003 they recorded the headstones for Primrose and submitted over 18,000 names for the DVD. Recently they decided to build on that experience and ensure that the heritage inherent in the Cemetery was preserved even more securely by photographing the headstones. To celebrate the occasion a live TV interview at Primrose was arranged with Theresa Taylor of eNCA by Jane O’Connor, an avid cemetery recording member of the Society.
The GSSA wishes the group every success, and thanks the SEWFHS for their continuing support.
