This CD presents as a pdf file the index compiled by Joan Ainsworth in 1981 to a wide range of records relating to Australians, Germans, Pacific Islanders and other expatriates in Papua New Guinea. It was previously published on microfiche by the Queensland Family History Society in 1992, originally titled Some expatriates of Papua New Guinea. This re-release on CD makes the resource much more accessible and allows searching of the text of the full publication using Acrobat Reader.
The material is presented in five parts:
1. Cemetery Records: Monumental inscriptions for 15 cemeteries: the old Port Moresby Cemetery Register 1912-1969: and transcriptions of memorials from six churches and war memorials.
2. Miscellaneous Records: Change of name: Civil officials and prisoners of war deported to Australia 1914-1915: firearm permits 1891-1895: naturalisations 1947-1956.
3. Probate Notices 1888-1975: From five different government gazettes: includes Notice to Creditors and Orders to Administer Estates by the Curator of Intestate Estates.
4.Transcriptions of BDMs: Transcriptions of the birth, death and marriage notices from seven newspapers.
5. Alphabetical Index: A complete alphabetical index to the four earlier parts.
The full index covers approximately 15,000 people, with multiple sources for many, and the full file represents over 600 pages of indexes and other information.
This material on this CD is a unique and extremely valuable resource for research on expatriate families in Papua New Guinea. It covers a total of 38 sources from across the country, with some information such as the monumental inscriptions no longer available as time and vandalism have taken their toll on headstones. With very few Papua New Guinea records available, this CD is an essential resource for researchers with Papua New Guinea interests.
