Index to Miscellaneous Journals and Family History Magazines 2011 & 2012

The Journals indexed are the journals and publications of many Societies across Australia. This volume was published in July 2013. Orders can be made by email to the Blue Mountains Family History Society. Price of volume $30.00 + p&p $8.50. (Was originally $35.00)

Many new journals indexed!

There are some changes from past indices. Some societies have moved to online publications only, and these are no longer indexed. Online is cost saving for the producing societies, but as some have found, excessively expensive for the receiving society to print for members where newsletter information such as rosters, lists of acquisitions, useful websites etc make up a considerable part of the journal. The underlying reason for compiling indices was to make better use of the most under utilised resource - our publications whether they are called newsletters, magazines or journals.

Many journals have ISSN registration. The 2009-2012 entries have # beside all journals with ISSN numbers, so users will know those that have been stored in the National Library of Australia and the relevant State Library. Correspondence via our website link is evidence that they are being used there, presumably by family researchers not in any family history society. In this way information is being disseminated further and over a longer period than when the magazine is newly published.

Local and family history societies can, and do, provide elusive, valuable information about people and locations. The articles on the methods and chances by which brickwalls crumbled, spelling variations, proven errors in a variety of resources etc. provide new leads for readers. These are all too valuable to have been read when current, then stored or thrown away due to lack of space. It resembles a dictionary, atlas or encyclopaedia that remains unused until one needs to dip in for a specific purpose.

It is assumed that each society will retain a copy of each of their issues and can be contacted in the future.

So some journals have dropped out of the index in this two year period, and others have come in, especially The Ancestor and The South Australian Genealogist from Victoria and South Australia respectively. We have contacted Western Australia a couple of times and now have Esperance making the Index truly Australia-wide.

Index to Miscellaneous Family History Magazines 2004 to 2006

- over 6000 entries!


Is your thinking a little like this?

"Now when was Rookwood established? Was it before Waverley? I remember seeing something about when the cemeteries were established in one of the magazines! I wonder which one?"

I'm sure you have wondered about a great many family history related questions. The usual libraries and websites drew a blank. Google was totally useless (100,000 entries, none related to the question). Then use our index

eg looking for Sydney cemeteries - see

Note

Post 2003 indexes are in more detail than the original with many items listed twice eg CEMETERY - Mittagong, and under MITTAGONG cemetery. It will still be necessary to do some lateral thinking to find all the material which could be relevant or helpful for your research. All indexes follow the format of the published one - as shown here:
