Specialist Indexes in Australia: a Genealogist's Guide
2006 Supplement to the 1998 edition

The book Specialist Indexes in Australia: a Genealogist's Guide is an index of indexes that are useful for historical research, especially genealogy, family history and local history. Specialist Indexes helps you to find indexes to sources for all of Australia and some overseas areas. It describes local area indexes, Pioneer Registers, newspaper indexes, One-Name (surname) indexes, indexes on a wide variety of other topics, and indexes (compiled in Australia) for overseas records.

Features of the 2006 Supplement to the 1998 edition

  • Descriptions and contact addresses for over 700 indexes (new indexes, plus updates to many entries in the 1998 edition).
  • Includes changes of address since the 1998 edition.
  • Many unusual and neglected sources.
  • Many indexes are in private hands and accessible only by mail enquiry.
  • The book helps you to find indexes. It does not contain the indexes themselves.
  • Only the titles of the indexes are listed on this Web site. The books themselves give more information.
  • You may also need the 1998 edition. It has about 500 entries that are not repeated in the Supplement.

Extract from review by Dawn Montgomery in Qld Family Historian vol.28 no.1:  This index would be a worthy addition to anyone's genealogical library, and one which should be an essential acquisition for every family history / genealogical library in Australia.
