While researching my family I have found a number of interesting and informative web sites. Some of these have direct relevance to my family and others that have been indirectly helpful in finding information. If you have websites that may be of use please let me know and I will add them.

 

www.bdm.nsw.gov.au
- Index Search

NSW Births, Deaths and Marriages
This site has been the most helpful site so far. Here you can search the NSW Births, Deaths and Marriages Indexes. Once you have found a record you can then order it online.
 

www.centennialpark.org

Centennial Park Cemetery

This cemetery now has the ability to search their database for relatives online. Quite helpful to chech dates, ages and grave locations.
 


www.awm.gov.au


Australian War Memorial
Here you can search a huge database of information, including Boer War, WWI & WW2 Nominal Rolls as well as the Roll of Honour, articles, photos, books, films, sound recordings and Official records from the National Archives. Linked are various family members online records.

 


www.naa.gov.au

National Archives of Australia
This is the major repository of material created since Federation in 1901 by agencies of the Commonwealth government. Of particular interest are WWI Service records and Naturalisation records.
 

www.archives.sa.gov.au

State Records of South Australia
This is the source for most of South Australia's Governmental records. It houses thing like the Destitute Asylum and Mental Asylum admissions, records of people who worked in Government Departments, shipping and passenger records and much more.
 

www.genealogysa.org.au

Genealogy SA
My local Genealogy Society. They have an extensive library of books, microfiche and records as well as helpful staff and volunteers. Without this facility we would not have been able to achieve anywhere near as much as we have. Their website has recently been updated with a range of new features and information.
 

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Broken_Hill
trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/45309452

War in Broken Hill
(Picnic Train)
This is an interesting account of an attack on a train load of people heading for a picnic out of Broken Hill in 1915. The train was attacked by 2 Turks and some people were killed. My Grandmother, Ethel Moe (nee Wilson) was a teenager on that train.

Australia's Redcoat Settlers

To quote the owners of this site "This Site is dedicated to the Officers, Men and Their families of the Penninsular and other Regiments who settled in Australia"
Here they are cataloguing as many of the British soldiers that settled here in Australia, including my ancestor, Private Henry Best of the 11th Regiment of Foot.
 

www.prov.vic.gov.au

Victorian Public Records Office
This site like many other Australian Government sites has some of its historical databases online. Of particular interest is the assisted and unassisted passengers lists.
 

www.sapolicehistory.org

South Australian Police Historical Society
The society was a great help in discovering Henry Bests interesting and colourful career. They also kindly supplied the photo of Henry in uniform.

National Archives Of Norway

Norway keeps excellent records and have the 1801, 1865 and 1900 Norwegian Censuses online! We have found several of our ancestors here including my grandfathers Kristiansen family.
 
www.pictureaustralia.org Picture Australia
One problem a researcher will find is that although there are many libraries and institutions with online databases, you have to search them all individually. You also firstly have to know they exist. This is where PictureAustralia comes in VERY handy. This site links many library databases together so you can search for an historical image from all at once! Very impressive and has helped me find images of people ships etc I had previously missed.
www.shipsuccess.com

The Ship Success
This site managed by Richard Norgard tells of the history of the infamous ship "Success". My Jennings family arrived in South Australia on this ship in 1848. Richard will soon be releasing the book "Heart of Teak" a definitive history of the Success.
