This CD, produced by QFHS as a Q150 project supported by the Queensland Government through its Q150 Community Funding Program, presents 750 contributed stories of families living in Queensland before its separation from New South Wales in December 1859. The collection includes an index file, enabling rapid searching of the text of all files and linking to search results, and an introduction which includes a brief history of the Moreton Bay region 1824-1859 and tips on searching. It greatly extends the QFHS earlier book of 50 such stories published to celebrate Australia’s bicentenary in 1988 and complements the QFHS pre-separation name index, produced at the same time, to 75 primary research sources and now available on CD as the Queensland Early Pioneers Index 1824-1859.
By describing the origins, lives and descendants of so many people from all walks of life the stories collectively make this an absorbing and invaluable research resource for anyone interested in this period of Queensland’s history as well as in the families mentioned.
System Requirements: Any computer system supporting Adobe Reader - version 6 or later is needed for comprehensive searching. 90 Mb of disk space is required to copy the collection to a hard disk.
