Queensland School Pupils Index Part 4
Published November 2007$51.50 incl P&P $2.00 per item
This CD index to Queensland School Pupils is the fourth from QFHS continuing QSPI project, indexing admissions and other school records in Queensland, and can be directly searched on name, school and year with QFHSdatasearch. The information has not been previously published and will not be available on microfiche.
QSPI Part 4 indexes over 390,000 names drawn from 331 Queensland schools. It and the earlier QSPI CDs together cover almost 1,300,000 names from over 900 schools. Dates for this CD range from 1870 with a 30 year closure, as recommended by Education Queensland, when names were extracted directly from Admission Registers. Schools range from large city ones with admissions in the thousands to country one-teacher schools with a total enrolment of hundreds. Some schools have long ceased to exist; others are still functioning.
Sources from which the names are drawn are diverse - actual school admission registers, school histories covering a significant anniversary (Jubilee, Golden, Centenary) in the life of a school, and local histories which don't focus on the school but include a pupil list as part of their story. Many sources provide additional information on the family including age at admission, birth date, parent's name and occupation, religion, address. Schools are a source we cannot afford to overlook!
