COMPUTER INDEXES

The Book Index can be searched by author or title or part thereof. The card index can still be used but no further entries are being made.

The Subject Index contains references to journal articles, microfiche, maps, some books (where the title is not descriptive of the subject) and chapters in books. It is best used by scrolling down the alphabetical list of subjects.

The Journals Index lists all our exchange and donated journals. It includes the name and address of each society and the title of the journal.

The Cemetery Index includes references to books, journal articles, microfiche, CDs and maps. It is very comprehensive - some of the references do not appear in the card index. No further entries will be made to the card index.

Our aim is to make our resources as accessible as possible to as many members as possible. If you need help in using the indexes please ask.

USEFUL RESOURCES
As mentioned at the last meeting, print-outs of both State Records and SAGs electronic newsletters are being placed in white folders for your perusal. Keep up with the latest news on resources, publications for sale, courses, etc at both of these repositories.

The 1828 Census of NSW on CD is a great new resource searchable by a single field or by up to 12 fields together. Print-outs of the details of individuals, families and households can be made.

Another recent acquisition on CD is “SMH BDM Notices 1831-1853”. We also hold “SMH BDM Consolidated Index Apr 1857-Dec 1884” in book form. Some patience is required in searching, but there is always the possibility of success.

“Digging for Diggers” is a user-friendly, step-by-step guide to tracing the military history of your WW 1 soldier. Included are examples of the forms to be filled in, documents you are likely to find and something of the history of the war. This is a particularly useful resource for the beginner.

You can follow up Marie Hughes’s talk on local potteries with an attractive, well-illustrated little book listed above – “And so we graft from six to six: the Brickmakers of NSW”. It deals mainly with the brickmakers of Sydney and environs but many locals get a mention.

The Card Index aptly called “MISCELLANEOUS” contains references to articles and chapters in journals, books and files on a wide range of subjects. If there is no book on a particular subject of interest this might be the place to look. The aim is to make our resources as accessible as possible.
