1 MAP: Southeast Australia

Black and white map, printed on 18" x 24" paper., Reproduction map of original
Some researchers have discovered that branches of their family migrated not only to North America, but also to Australia. They will have special interest in our reprint of Edward Weller's map of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, issued about 1875 by Blackie & Son. Railway lines, small towns, and an abundance of political and geographical information make this a most useful map for the researcher.

Land Research for Family Historians in Australia and New Zealand, Carole Riley


2 Land Research for Family Historians in Australia and New Zealand
Carole Riley
paperback, 80 pages, colour photos, glossary, further reading, index
Land research can tell us so much about how our ancestors lived and worked. It can help us find out the truth about stories we've heard, and can give us a much richer picture of our ancestors' social and economic position. If they owned a house, business premises or rural property there are records to be found, many of which contain a wealth of information.
We can also break down brick walls using land records that we have been otherwise unable to solve. Buying or selling property may have been the only time our ancestors dealt with government in colonial times, and land records can contain evidence such as birth dates and names of family members; information that is recorded nowhere else.

This book will introduce you to the main types of records you can find, such as deeds and grants, Torrens titles, Crown leases, selections and conditional purchases, closer and solder settlements, title applications, maps, and plans. We will look at what they mean and where to find them in New Zealand and each Australian state and territory.

Whether you are researching the history of your house or tracing the history of an ancestor through the property they owned, this book is for you.
