News from Queensland

The Queensland Government has announced a new Family History Research Service that makes it easier for family historians to search the Queensland indexes to historical records online. This new search engine went live today at 8.30am.  The new service is person centric, so one only has to perform one search to get birth, death and marriage results in one list. One can then order record images and certificates directly from the results.

This is fantastic for those conducting Surname Studies. I just entered the search term Curry and I was rewarded with 1684 results. As I won’t be ordering any certificates at this time I did not test out the ordering facility.

Results for Curry Search

What I liked is that the results I have seen so far include the actual dates of the events rather than just the year of registration thus making it easier to compare the results with other sources.

Up until now I had not made a concerted effort to search the Queensland Indexes – I must have known that a new search was coming!!

Now I just need to find the time to enter all this information into my database.
