Chris Paton at http://scottishancestry.blogspot.com/ has just let us all know about Ancestry.au latest release of the Birth, Marriage & Death Indexes. They covers Births 1788 – 1922, Marriages 1788 – 1949 & Deaths 1787 – 1985. Each Australian state has a different commencement date for civil registration so it would pay to check out the information available on the site. It is always wise to understand what you are looking at rather than rush in and search…. tempting though that is!!
