Sydney Herald.jpg

The first newspaper in Australia, the weekly Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser, began publication in 1802. Other newspapers soon followed. Notices of births, marriages, and deaths; obituaries, military, government and business notices; and news of the day were printed in these newspapers. The Historic 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.)
