Find birth, death and marriage records before civil (government) registration was introduced into NSW including Moreton Bay in March 1856.

There are some official records, but you may need to use more. Join this webinar to find out what some of those records might be to build a better picture of an event and resolve conflicting details. You will:

  • learn how to identify relevant records in the NSW and Queensland Registry indexes and then search NSW original records for them successfully;
  • understand how to expand on this information with related records including newspaper notices, coronial inquests or Colonial Secretary's Correspondence;
  • discover how to use other records to resolve inconsistencies when possible;
  • develop an awareness of the difference between church records before and after March 1856.
