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.
