New Website for Armidale & New England History - Aboriginal History
« on: Saturday 02 April 11 09:10 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I have just launched a website which will grow from week to week.  My main project it that I am compiling an index of Aboriginal people from the New England NSW.  Areas included are Inverell, Tingha, Armidale, Uralla, Hillgrove, Walcha, Glen Innes, Guyra, Bundarra etc.

I have completed the first part of the vollunteer project which is an index of the parish registers for the area of all the references to Aboriginal people. This is where there is a reference to Aboriginality.    These have been complied from Microfilm at the NE Regional Archives in Armidale.  Unfortunately the Catholic Records are not on film available to the public. 

The project will continue and I will be expanding the index to include newspaper artices, gaol records and photos, census records, Old Station records, and much more.

Feel free to keep checking back and use the info I find.

Hello Caroline.

I'll be very very interested in having ongoing looks at your index, as I have  a brick wall in the Inverell area, and we suspect there could be an aboriginal connection.

However, your link to the index is not working at present. The page that comes up is all kinds of computer"speak"

There are two links, the general one I have posted a coming soon message with the sources listed.  Is that the one?  They are working fine for me. 

I found quite a few references to Inverell.  There were a lot of relationships out that way as there were not many white women around in the early days.  There were also a couple of Stations who housed Aboriginal people.  Bassendene which is listed in the index was one which was north of bundarra and half way between Tingha and Inverell.  There are a few baptisms in the index from there.

Thanks,

Caroline

Ok, that is odd.  I will look into that.  Thanks for the feedback.  Caroline

Edit.  I think it is because I used a php file and something needs to be installed to support them...  I have attempted to install it, it may work now otherwise I will fix it when I get home.  Regards,  Caroline

Should be working ok now.  I changed some pages to another format.  Enjoy the site and keep an eye out for any further additions which should come in the next few days.   Hopefully the general index will be uploaded in a couple of days.  The Parish Records index is on there now and should be working ok.

Regards,

Yes, it's working well now thanks, Caroline. I've looked at the Anglican Parish Records page but no luck there. However, I'll keep checking regularly.

Not to worry, they didn't always write the word in, and the catholic records are yet to be indexed.  Unfortunatly that means that i need permission to look over the original for the two weeks that the Anglican ones too.  I will be applying for permission soon. 

I am also going to Canberra next week so may dig up some more at the National Library or AIATIS.

This is the area (the frontier) were there were may relationships between male workers and Aboriginal women. 

Regards,

I'll keep my fingers crossed......   :)

The birth that's missing is that of my children's paternal great grandfather, and his father as named on his marriage certificate cannot be found mentioned in any other records that I've had access to either. So I grab at any opportunity, and welcomed the news of your indexes.

Good luck!
