Maryborough Chronicle Indexing
I am in the
process of indexing 'Names
Chronicle newspaper. The Chronicle
covers central, coastal Queensland and has been published
since the 1860s. Click here
to see a map of coastal Queensland showing the area covered by the
Chronicle. The indexes will be divided onto multiple CDs. The CD is to meant be used in conjuction with the Maryborough Chronicle Newspaper Micro-films
which are held by some State Libraries as well as the Hervey Bay
Library. The CD will give you the date, and page number where the
individual is mentioned in the newspaper. The story then needs to
be read from the micro-films. Many modern day film readers will
allow a photo-copy to be taken of the page/story.
Chronicle Index (1885 -
1885 to December 1940 (a total of 55 years -
entries) and is now
available on one CD,

public purchase. This
has been advertised in the 'Australian Family Tree Connections'
Magazine. The CD is an index of names only, and does not have any information about any individual or story.
CD is an essential tool for doing genealogy in this
area of Queensland and can provide valuable information about people
not available anywhere else. It is meant to be used with the micro-films of the newspaper. If you do
not have access to Maryborough

Edition CD - I am
now in the process of indexing the years
1860 - 1884. This database will be on a new CD called
the 'Pioneer Edition', covering 1860 - 1900, and will be available

contain much more information than earlier indexes done by others (see
categories for my CD).
The earlier indexes (1900-1930) which were done on
only birth, death and marriage references for Maryborough
whereas the CD index, lists ALL NAMES mentioned of people in the
Maryborough area. These
an excellent research tool for finding family in most of
SE regional Queensland during
the time frames covered.
