Last week I went to a Gould Genealogy/Unlock The Past talk at Mt Barker Library. One of the things discussed were the resources on the Unlock The Past website. The resources page lists – Blogs, Book Reviews, eHandouts, How To Guides, General Interest, Guides To Records, Religion and Free Sample Files.
eHandouts includes links to Presentations from the Unlock the Past conference-cruise March 2011
Guides To Records – Government and Police Gazettes: Unlocking a major untapped resource by Alan Phillips (PDF), The South Australian Government Gazettes with particular reference to Port Adelaide by Andrew G Peake (PDF), Directories and Almanacs by Graham Jaunay
Religion – Find Your Ancestors in Church Publications Part 1 by Shauna Hicks and parts 2 &3.
The Free Sample Files & Indexes page has a huge amount of information – Australian Men of Mark 1889, Australasian Medical Directory and Handbook 1883, Australian Handbook 1882, H.M.S. Buffalo and many, many more!
What a great repository of free information. I hope you can all find something about your ancestors, or the times they lived in, here.
