World Archives Project: Australia Newspaper Vital Notices, 1851-1997 (Part 1)


This project is from three different newspapers in Australia and ever image of the Australia Newspaper Vital Notices of 1851 – 1991  has a Birth, Marriage or Death notice.  The images were classified as “record” before making this available to you so you should be able to find at least one interesting vital notice on every image.

Only index vital events from notices that were published specifically to announce the vital event. Do not key any vital information from regular news articles though those are really interesting too.  This project will test your knowledge of relationships to individuals so have fun learning.

If you have any questions please visit the discussion board here.  Enjoy indexing.

For Australian keyers and reviewers it would be useful to either list the 3 papers, or show which Australian states they’re from.
