Description
 
The 'South Australian Gazette and Colonial Register' was the major South Australian newspaper from 1836. Personal notices from this paper, which became the 'South Australian Register' in June 1839, have been published and indexed in an important series of volumes. Each volume includes:
  • the entire text of all birth, marriage and death notices for the period covered
  • an index of ALL persons mentioned in the notices
  • an index of marriage celebrants
  • an index of place names - especially useful to local historians

The information given complements that available from other sources. In addition to names and dates of persons being researched there are often details of the person's origins and relatives in other colonies and overseas - Britain, Ireland, Germany, India, New Zealand, Canada, U.S. and elsewhere. In some instances the death notices give extensive details about the person's life and achievements - and sometimes his/her vices! Shipboard births and deaths are sometimes recorded. Also included are notices from the Adelaide Observer which were not in the Register. The Observer was the weekly organ of the Register, and generally (but not always) reproduced personal notices from the Register.

The 3 volumes may be purchased together as a set of three - or separately

The place index includes several thousand references to names and places in other Australian colonies and some 30 overseas countries - especially Britain and Ireland.
