Apart from the usual BDM records, as well as directory or electoral roll listings, researchers of Australian ancestors should consider using church records, and not just for baptisms, marriages or burials. If you had ancestors who attended a particular church there's a good chance they'll be mentioned in church bulletins somewhere along the line. This particular book describes the records specific to the Baptist denomination in Australia, together with where they are, and how to access them.

This guide to Baptist history resources gives an overview of the Baptist denomination, describing its background, structure, activities and special characteristics. This material provides an understanding of the nature and type of historical information and records that are available to researchers, It covers the central denominational organisation, and also the local church which is the main focus of Baptist church life.

There are detailed state-based lists of the various locations where historical records are to be found, and the type of record and conditions of access that apply. A particular feature is information about books on Baptist history in Australia and the Baptist denomination.

Finally, this guidebook covers information about other sources of historical information on the Baptist denomination, listings about other Baptist groups and also some information about related organisations which may provide helpful background for researchers.
