Record Description

You can browse through images in this collection by visiting the browse page for Australia, New South Wale...paper Cuttings, 1841-1987.

Most events included in the records date from approximately 1841 to 1987. Information included in the cards may predate 1841. A very few earlier records do exist.

Newspaper cuttings are pasted to cards. In some cases the information is extracted or typewritten on the cards, and these include the name of the newspaper that published the event.

In the past, ads were placed in the local newspaper to announce a birth, marriage, or death. This information was later extracted into an alphabetically filed card index. Information included in these cards is primarily for marriages and deaths, but this collection does include some births. There are a few cards with information extracted from the 1811 census. These cards came from the Thomas Mutch index, probate index, vital records, etc. Population coverage is not complete. The majority of the records are from New South Wales, but there are a few from Queensland.

This collection was created to more readily assist in locating information regarding a birth, marriage, death, obituary or other miscellaneous information about an individual that appeared in a newspaper.

For an alphabetical list of records currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.
