Australia / Aboriginal records available for New England NSW
« on: Wednesday 07 September 11 23:39 BST (UK)  »
Hi Everyone,

I have been continuing with my research project on Aboriginal records pre 1956 for this region. Most records I am accessing are at the regional archives in Armidale. The details of records are available free to access online.  So far I have trawled through the C of E  parish records, census records, newspaper articles, gaol records, inquests up to 1900.  I am just starting with school records and will move onto station records of which there are many.  The collection is up to 235 records.

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.
