In previous posts I have written about the Public Record Office Victoria and the NSW State Records and Archives. The equivalent in Queensland is the Queensland State Archives.
Both the Public Record Office Victoria and the NSW State Records and Archives have a collection search function that searches multiple indexes and collections at once, but in the Queensland State Archives you need to search the collections individually.
I haven’t used this site much at all, except a couple of times for immigration records, so I don’t know how much information is available on the website. On the Explore Our Collection page it has the following:
- Family history This page includes the link to the Births, Deaths and Marriages website, as well as a brief overview of the collections
- Schools, hospitals and orphanages
- Courts This includes Inquests and Wills
- Lands and mining
- Convicts and early settlers
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
- Australian South Sea Islanders
- Shipping and railways
