Digitised Newspapers

We are very pleased that more Queensland newspapers have just been added to Digitised newspapers and more on Trove.

Newspapers are a wonderful resource for both family and local history. You can search for a specific person or event or just take a leisurely browse through a few issues of your favourite newspaper. Correcting the text created by OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software is also a very satisfying and an incredibly worthwhile way to fill a few hours.

We wish you many hours of pleasure immersed in Queensland’s past.

i am interested to hear from anyone in Charleville district who might know anything about a drover, Kevin Cruickshanks, who was stuck in a tree with his dogs for a few days during the floods in the nineties. I have met him in my saddlery shop in Bundaberg, but he passed away before I could get his full story

I joined library. No confirmation that I joined. Still can't look at digitalized version of Rockhampton bulletin from 1870. It's unreadable
