|Cracow is located SE of Theodore, NW of Maryborough.
It is a small mining town which is currently enjoying a new lease of mining life.
It is an underground mine driven through the ridges and has recently been fortunate that the years of development bore fruit exactly when the price of gold climbed dramatically.
The cemetery I found is a relatively modern one located in the valley to the east of the ridgetop township. Assuming you've arrived at the twonship from Theodore to the north, drive towards Eidsvold and the cemetery can be found down near the creek, on the right in the trees.
We have now gone to a live on-line database called MOP ('Myra's Other Place') and the records listed below are steadily being copied over. Once a record is there a green tick will show alongside the entry. The MOP database has a lot more than just cemetery records and is worth checking out here where you can log in as Guest password guest.
