Some names that are missing from Queensland's online birth/death indexes are on the CD-ROM version of those indexes. I've listed the names & a few other details. #genealogy

The history of Australia Day - I didn't know this!
 
with Australia Day tomorrow, this seems appropriate ...
#australiaday   #australianhistory  
We all know that Australia Day is celebrated on 26 January ... right? Sure! But did you know that Australia Day wasn't always celebrated on this day?

Indexes to Queensland births registered up to & including 1919 are at http://bit.ly/2Qbto19. This is an exciting resource, because you can only search up to early 1916 on the Registry of BDMs Web site, which has a 100-year access restriction. #genealogy  
Discover your ancestors who were born in Queensland between 1829 and 1919.

Search tips for Will Books 1800-1952, which include wills for people from all over the world. A magnificent online resource for family history! #genealogy  
Archives hold wills for many people who lived in other States and even other countries. Wherever your ancestors were, you should search indexes to NSW Will Books.

I intend to temporarily reduce the price of one of my copying services for original records at Queensland State Archives. Check the list of indexed records (www.judywebster.com.au/other.html) & tell me which ones would interest you most if copies cost less. Add a comment here, & if you're lucky I may select the index/records that you nominate! #genealogy  
This leads to 53,000 names from Archives records (asylums, hospitals, pensions, missing persons, criminals etc) plus graves and certificates indexed for genealogy.

+Anne Hodges are you interested in any particular set of records that I've indexed (www.judywebster.com.au/other.html)? I still haven't decided which copying service should be discounted this month, so you might be able to influence my decision. ;-)

Today there's both good news & bad news from FindMyPast (one of my favourite genealogy Web sites) - but more good than bad, thankfully. #genealogy
