State Records NSW University New England Armidale
« on: Sunday 17 January 16 21:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I have found some land records held with the State Records NSW but held at University New England and regional archives, Armidale.
I was wondering if anyone had found records through them? Just not sure how to go about trying to get copies of these records. I'm in Brisbane so am not able to actually go to the archives.

Thanks
Mel

Hi Mel,

State Records are fantastic, and the regional archives are mentioned here in this live link from State Records
http://www.records.nsw.gov.au/state-archives/guides-and-finding-aids/archives-in-brief/archives-in-brief-14

I have not used the Armidale one, but I have used one of the other regional archives and the staff there were ever so helpful. 

I find that the email replies from Kingswood to any of my enquiries are full of helpful assistance and advice whenever I ask any question.   http://www.records.nsw.gov.au/contact-us/contact-us

Land records are ever so interesting particularly for family history, especially when the family surname is one of those very popular ones....  :)
 
Cheers,  JM

Just thought I'd reply with how I went emailing the Uni of New England Armidale. 

What fantastic service, don't think I've ever gotten a reply so quick and they also provided me with copies of the Conditional purchases register straight away via email.

I sent the email at 11.01 this morning and had copies and reply at 11.08. Wow , very impressed.

Many thanks for the update.   I have phoned my cousin (retired Archivist) who was part of the team that set up Kingswood when it was hived off from NSW State Library back decades ago.   He is mighty impressed that the standards are being upheld.

Cheers,  JM
