Would love to have you come back! For a holiday, lots of cuddly animals to show you and of course if we can squeeze in a talk or two that would be perfect!

Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages releases Marine Death digitised images today!   And I have bought the death at sea of my William George Busby who died of dentition and bronchitis in 1882 aboard the Mhari Bhan. I love seeing the page of the register rather than a transcribed typed copy.

They have been digitising their certificate images for a while now and gradually releasing them available for immediate download at the reduced price  of $20 (in comparison to $28 for a printed certificate ) They are found in the usual death search.

+Helen Smith sorry, I didn't make myself clear. What I meant to say was... though marine certificates may not previously have been available for download as digital images, they were supplied as photographic copies (printed on paper) of the original marine register - not as typed transcriptions.

It's SO much more than "just a wardrobe".

Introduction

I have been researching my family since 1986. I have research in Australia, England and Ireland with some later emigration to the USA.  
I am a tech toy addict and enjoy experimenting with them. I have published one booklet ‘Death Certificates and Archaic Medical Terms” and have a number partially ready. I enjoy being a genealogy speaker and giving presentations and workshops.

I love the "Finding Out" side of things and working out why, which is the reason social history, local history are so important. I am a Molecular Epidemiologist specialising in Public Health Microbiology with a strong interest in infectious diseases and Public Health through the ages.
