Sources used

Each time I do a new course I will add a list of the sources used or mentioned by either lecturers, tutors or students.

Introduction to family history – This includes links to charts, researching tips, using Ancestry and is based on UTAS Diploma of Family History unit – most links checked June 2018

Families at War – This includes links for researching your WWI relative – mainly Australia/New Zealand but includes some from UK – based on the Future Learn course run by Monash University. I will also include new links from Families at War UTAS unit. Links updated January 2018.

Convict Ancestors – including links to pre transportation, transportation and voyages, convict life in Australia and post convict life – based on UTAS Diploma of Family History units – Convict Ancestors and Convicts in Context or their Legacy.

Place, Image and Object – links to mapping, photos and dating of them as well as researching heirlooms or objects in your family.

Oral history – interviewing, questions to ask, tools to use and how to edit your interviews.

Writing your family history – including tips for finding stories, writing the stories, publishing the stories

Photo essay – presenting your family history through photography

Overseas Searching – As many of the units relate mainly to Tasmanian or Australian records, I have also created a new page.


Readers: If you have other sources I have not mentioned that you have used successfully, please leave a link in the comment area on the appropriate page.

  1. Thanks for continuing to provide helpful resources and links Sue — your contributions to everyone’s efforts has been amazing.
    There is something very special about you….. wish you’d been around when I was fighting with high school maths.


  2. Gosh, don’t know whether to thank you or not?? Just when I thought I had looked at enough sites and had enough info to start my story, along you come😉, suppose you can never have enough information. Thankyou will save this for my future courses too.

  3. Thank you Sue. My father has one remaining 1st cousin who will be 100 in December. She is one very sharp lady; still living in her own home independently.
    I am hoping to interview her for the Oral history unit which I am not able to do for a little while yet.
    I am getting a bit anxious that she wont be around when I am doing that Unit, so this will help me greatly. I can get a it of a head start.
    Thank you again
