Australian records on FindmyPast.com

From FindmyPast (www.findmypast.com):

Australia and Great Britain share a similar culture, the same Queen, and in many cases the same ancestral lines. If you’re looking for a link between your Australian and British family lines our new records may help you.

We’ve just added over 863,000 records for the states of Victoria and New South Wales in Australia. Each record costs six credits to view, or can be viewed free with an Explorer subscription. They include:

Convict arrivals in New South Wales (1788-1842)
The convict records are found in our ‘other records’ section.

Cemetery Burials and Memorial Inscriptions for Victoria (1835-1997) and Victoria funeral notices (1981-1997)
These records form part of our Parish Records Collection.

Names in Government Gazettes, Victoria (1858-1900)
This is an index of over 461,000 records gathered from notices printed in the Victorian Government Gazette between 1858 and 1900. They cover everything from the leasing of land, law and order, licensing, to tenders and contracts and other subjects.


It should be noted that the original editions of the Victoria Government Gazettes can also be found for free at
