I have updated the general index with some census records, gaol records and death transcriptons.  Also three new intries on the Anglican Records.

Hope it helps solve some mysteries for some people.

Have just updated the index which has grown quite a bit since the site lauched.  Just under 100 entries and will grow as I trawl through the station records of the New England.  Some local death certificate transcriptions have been added.

Hope this helps someone, it is free to access and this wont change.

After three days solid research, have updated the Index which now has 163 entries.  More to come.  I hope people are finding it useful.

Up to 184 now.  I was at the Regional archives today for a short time and after looking at the index of inquests in the State Records kit, have decided to index the New England entries with a separate index for Aboriginal mentions.  From what I saw today they do specify Aboriginal Chinese and I even saw one American.

Ooh that is interesting, Caroline.......doctor asked me if my daughter was adopted from an Asian country........she wasn't......but Aboriginal Chinese connection could make sense.......

Congratulations on all the work already done Caroline, there is most likely many more files to be transcribed and uploaded.  I do not envy you the undertaking ...

Cheers,  JM

oops, should have been a comma between, but yes, Aboriginal Chinese relationships did occur. Cathy Freeman has one in her tree from a chinese cook at FNQ and an Aboriginal lady. Because there were a lot of Chinese on both the gold fields and brought out as labour for stations, these relationships were bound to happen.  I must say that I haven't seen Aboriginal - Chinese as a label.  They did use the term 'half-caste' for Chinese as well as Aboriginals however in the census.

The great thing is that there is a wealth of records out there, just need to be compiled.  Maybe one day the falicy that 'there aren't good records of Aboriginal people' will be disproved.  In some ways there are more records.  It was because of the rules of the BDM registry that wouldn't allow registering births after a child was 6 months that discriminated towards the poorer, less literate and remote Australians no matter what colour. 

191 entries in the index as of tonight.  Good night. :-)
