Specialist Indexes in Australia: a Genealogist's Guide

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. It is based on information submitted to the Central Register of Indexing Projects in Australia.

2006 Supplement:  An 'index of indexes' (published and unpublished) with descriptions and contact addresses to help you gain access to over 700 indexes (many privately held and accessible only by mail enquiry) for all parts of Australia and some overseas areas. There are indexes to newspapers; local area sources; overseas records; One-Name studies; immigration; cemeteries; ships; electoral rolls; naturalisations; convicts; asylums; Masonic Lodge; occupational, military, church, school, court, council, police and undertakers' records; and a very wide variety of other sources and topics. This book contains new and updated entries only, so you may also need the 1998 edition.

Extract from book 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.

1998 edition:  Includes descriptions and contact addresses for about 500 entries that are not repeated in the 2006 Supplement.

Book review by Terry Egan, Melbourne: Judy Webster's directory of indexes is one of my most valued resources. It has saved me an enormous amount of time searching for sources. It should be the constant companion of researchers and indexers alike. Worth many times more than the cover price.

Please note: For changes of address since the 1998 edition, see the 2006 Supplement. It contains only amendments and new entries, so you may need both (1998 edition and Supplement).
