These are miscellaneous Australian genealogical records. This material is handwritten or typed on index cards. The cards are filed in alphabetical order by surname. Some index cards are transcripts of newspaper reports of births, marriages, and deaths; some are transcripts of various vital records, and so on. The emphasis appears to be New South Wales, with some Victorian records. Some cards show LDS ordinance work (TIBs) and extracts of LDS membership records. Other cards list information regarding various LDS families, and the emphasis appears to be South Australia (but does not include the early LDS families there).

Birth information about the child on a birth certificate should be fairly accurate. Marriage information about spouses on a marriage record and death information about the decedent on a death record should also be fairly accurate. However, this accuracy is dependent upon the reliability of the informant and of the person transcribing the information onto the cards.

What is in the Collection?

This collection will include records from 1776 to 1980.

These are miscellaneous Australian genealogical records. This material is handwritten or typed on index cards. The cards are filed in alphabetical order by surname. Some index cards are transcripts of newspaper reports of births, marriages, and deaths; some are transcripts of various vital records, and so on. The emphasis appears to be New South Wales, with some Victorian records. Some cards show LDS ordinance work (Temple Index Bureau) and extracts of LDS membership records. Other cards list information regarding various LDS families, and the emphasis appears to be South Australia (but does not include the early LDS families there).

The collection is composed of three sets of cards:

  1. The first set has data transcribed from birth, marriage and death records along with newspaper notices. The emphasis is on New South Wales with some records from Victoria.
  2. The second set is an index to temple and church records of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
  3. The third set is data primarily from family records and vital certificates. The emphasis is on families of South Australia with some additional information on families from Queensland. The population coverage is minimal. These cards were created as indexes to various genealogical records.
