Publisher: Queensland Family History Society

This CD, produced by QFHS as a Q150 project supported by the Queensland Government through its Q150 Community Funding Program, records details for over 5,000 schools in Queensland between the start of settlement and 2009. The entries cover school name, school number, initial opening date, final closing date, additional information on school history, location details, known publications with information about the school and reference sources. These items are described in detail in the database Overview, which also includes a 6-page Brief History of Queensland Education. The database complements the QFHS Queensland School Pupils Index series of CDs, which currently covers approximately 1,300,000 enrolments at about 900 schools throughout Queensland.

The material on this CD is a unique source of information on schools across the state and will be invaluable for researching school pupils, schools within areas or education in Queensland more generally. It covers all schools for which QFHS has been able to find information. While many of these are still operating, over half are now closed so information about them is much harder to find. Numerous schools have opened and closed shortly afterwards (sometimes several times), been renamed, been destroyed and rebuilt or been relocated. Numbers used by Education Queensland and its predecessors to identify schools have in many cases been reused once a school has closed, so inclusion of the details on these numbers provides a valuable start when seeking further information.

QFHSdatasearch is a generic interface designed to search genealogy databases and developed by the Queensland Family History Society Inc. This version features field oriented and keyword searches, Boolean selection, sorting, wildcard searches and, when applicable, links between search results and images held in pdf files of the source records.
