I am writing a post for each state of Australia with a list of great resources for researching ancestors in that particular state. Tasmanian records are held mainly at Libraries Tasmania where both archive and library resources are on the one website.
All headings link to the website.
Queensland State Archives
Like most other archives there are particular portals and collections to look through. Look at their How to start your research, then go on with the family history portal, then check the archives search area.
State Library of Queensland
The library has a special family history collection as well as many e-resources.
Queensland Family History Society
This is an extremely active society with many resources available. They have an excellent global keyword search for their entire website. But also remember to check out the dropdown menus for resources and online.
Judy Webster’s website
Judy is a very keen genealogist and put together many lists from indexes mainly around Queensland, some not found anywhere else. She also has lots of hints and tips for researching both in Queensland and elsewhere.
#ANZAncestryTime twitter chat
In November 2021, we had a twitter chat about Queensland. The first question related to resources to use when researching in Queensland.
Readers: What are other important websites you use to gather information when researching ancestors in Queensland?
Please read the comments as other family historians have added more websites to use.

Just found website to search for BDM in Queensland. Can also order from this site as well https://www.familyhistory.bdm.qld.gov.au/ Don’t be put off by the heading with research service. Just scroll down page and put in name you are searching for.
Thanks for mentioning my website. I’m glad that you find it helpful.
