Researching in Queensland

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.
