One thing that you will learn when beginning family history research is that there are no standards for abbreviations (except for a few exceptions). Each resource seems to have its own system. This lack of uniformity prompted the author to start recording these references, and in 1995 'Abbreviations for Genealogists' was released.

Afterall how many people know the following: cit = citizen (usually of London); fs = female servant / free by servitude;  GRG = Government Record Groups South Australia; im = inmate; l s = lodger's son / lawful son; osp = obiit sine prole (died without issue) ... and so on.

Now after several editions, and reprints this work is still an immensely useful reference work for any Australian researching their family history ... not just those beginning their search.
