I also found out from Cathy this evening the following: "Soon to be added will be executions, Norfolk Island 1st Settlement deaths 1788 – 1814

Includes references to the primary records such as the Sydney Gazette, Inquest details and shipping records and others."

Information included in the indices are the location, first and last name, burial and death dates, some also include the name of the parents if the person that died was a child. If the decedent was a convict, often there is information regarding the crime with which they were charged. If you have ancestors from New South Wales and/or Norfolk Island in Australia, this site may be able to provide you with information regarding ancestors. The Early Colonial History site of NSW click the New South Wales and Norfolk Island Indices. Even if you do not have Australian ancestry, it is interesting to read through the various indices. Have fun!
