Queensland, Australia Government Historical Dataset Indices are now Available Online

I am not sure how long these indices have been available online but they are new to me. The datasets of greatest significance to Family Historians can be found in the Historical Group. However, please note these are only indices, not original documents, maps or photographs but are a veritable treasure trove of information nonetheless. If you need more detailed information, you can first find the record of interest in the indices and then order a copy of the full original document.

The indices are available at: https://www.data.qld.gov.au/dataset?groups=historical


My relatives went to South Australia and to Victoria. Their state libraries have some terrific databases also, including maps and photos. I found photos of my relatives there!


Thanks for this, Dick. As a Queenslander now living in Utah, his site will be invaluable. Australia has a trove of great records online.
