On Tuesday, Janette Pelosi, from NSW State Records, was our guest speaker. Janette gave a very interesting talk about the types of records held at State records and how beneficial they can be for family researchers.
The NSW State records have a wonderful range of pamphlets, called Archives in Brief. A copy of Archives in Brief #7, Tracing your family history , is useful in that it mentions the different records.
Some other useful ones are #1 - Shipping and arrival records; #2 - Convict records; #4- Inquests and coronial records; #19 - Teachers; #26- Schools 1788-c1979 and many more. Janette mentioned that there is 126 Archives in Brief now available. Look at the web site www.records.nsw.gov.au for the full list and spend some time searching for your ancestors.
I have found many interesting pieces of information, from visiting State Records and recommend visiting them, at Kingswood.
Here are some photos of Janette's presentation.
