“Thankyou for your submission. It has been forwarded to the appropriate officer for action.”
Whooo Hooo!!! … made it just “by the skin of my teeth”. My submission to the South Australian “Draft Bill for Burial & Cremation 2012″ hit the appropriate
desk computer, at the A-G’s office, on the afternoon of the deadline 4 July 2012.
If you’d like a copy of these compliments to the South Australian Government for their initiative and commonsense, as well as suggestions for further improvement, just let me know and I’ll email a copy.
For those new to this topic and interested in the background: on 22 Jun 2012, as part of Gould’s “Family History Through the Alphabet” challenge, I posted “Gg – is for Grave concerns”. My concern being that of the Grave of my Great Grandmother and the very real threat she will be “dug up, bones stuffed into a small box, replaced and someone plonked on top..” You can read about it here.
A genealogical FBook friend then advised of the South Australian’s “Draft Bill for Burial & Cremation 2012″ which was open for public consultation. I wrote about this in “More Grave Concerns but of the happy kind…”
Lastly, in order to assist those who’d expressed concern over the short time frame, in which to respond, I posted “Grave Concerns & shortcuts for commenting…”
As an aside: One of the things I LOVE about Family History is the amazing things you discover, quite by chance. eg. When looking for links to “Bex” I discovered it was manufactured here in Dudley Park, South Australia etc… The link to this info is: http://samhs.org.au/Virtual%20Museum/Medicine/Australian_analgesia/Australian_analgesia.html
