The Australia Special Interest Group Meeting is a zoom meeting for members with an interest in researching their Australian ancestors. Members should register to attend this event by logging in and selecting the event with "(Register)" in the title.

The topic for this meeting is:

Parish Registers 

Parish Registers are very important in our research, because we are viewing the actual Parish Register of the event. We will be looking at how to find where the Registers can be located in Australia. Our Library does have the Actual Early Parish Registers on Microfilm from 1788-1856. We will be showing you how  to find these entries by Volume No and Entry No.on the Microfilm, that we have in our rooms.  SAG have copied hundreds or thousands of parish registers for all churches  for most areas of New South Wales from the earliest days of records, up to about 1960 or later.  The Newcastle Anglican diocese covers an area from the north side of the Hawkesbury up to near Tamworth.  These cover dates from 1826 to 1995.  While not all parishes are online, the reels for all parishes at available to 1905.  Come and join us in our discussions for a ZOOM Meeting . We would love to help.
