New South Wales Genweb Project

As most of my readers know, I am a huge fan of the World GenWeb Project. I came across the New South Wales Genweb Project and thought that I would share it with you. For those that are not aware, New South Wales is located in Australia and it is the most populated state.

This GenWeb site offers a great deal of information for those researching in this area. The following is just a small example of what is available for research.

A-Z NSW Shires - This includes information regarding the Shires - Volunteers are needed
Online Databases - Include extracted B/M/D records, census records. Some of the databases are free and others require a fee
Transcript Depot - Include burial records, electoral rolls, and periodicals to name a few
Convict Heritage - Extracted information from various places in England and Australia
General History

As with all GenWeb sites, they are generally maintained by individuals donating their time and talents to assist others in their personal family history quest. Click New South Wales GenWeb Project, if you would like to research further. Have fun!
