Tracing your ancestors through the State Records of New South Wales

Records produced by the government from the first days of settlement onwards are stored at State Records of New South Wales, Kingswood (near Penrith). Many genealogists are daunted at the thought of having to travel out to Kingswood when they don’t really know what to look for, then feel even more overwhelmed when they get there and find that there is no simple cataloguing system. This seminar will provide an overview of the sources available and how to access the type of records you are interested in.  

- 45/60 minutes – Powerpoint presentation


Tracing your ancestors in the Mitchell and State Libraries of New South Wales

While government records are held by State Records of NSW, records produced by private organisations are held by the Mitchell and State Libraries in Macquarie Street, Sydney. These include microfilms of newspapers and church registers, directories, books (of course) and other valuable sources. This seminar will provide an overview of the sources available and how to access the type of records you are interested in.

Tracing your ancestors in colonial New South Wales

As the editor of many volumes of early colonial records, the author of three works of popular history revolving around stories from our colonial past, and previously the General Editor of the Biographical Database of Australia, Carol Baxter is ideally suited to guide family historians in tracing their colonial ancestors. This seminar provides an overview of sources available for those living in Colonial New South Wales.
