Revision as of 16:49, 25 January 2011Historic Australian Newspapers, 1803 to 1954 project is digitizing many early newspapers.
Google news has put the Sydney Morning Herald on-line. The images start with 1854 and continue to the present. It is not a complete run but still worth your time. It is free to use and view the newspaper but you cannot print or copy the image.
Some compilations have been made of the genealogical information found in early newspapers. The following is an example for Queensland.
Grinly, Merle, and Margaret Belcher, Editors. Crosse- Dunleavy index: births, marriages, and deaths, 1846–1860. Stones Corner, Queensland, Australia: The Genealogical Society of Queensland, 1985. (Family History Library book number 994.3 B32c.)
