Our schools produced many records. Usually we think of the admission registers and are happy to locate our family in these but do we know what more we can learn by checking out the original record? We need to realise too that many other records also exist: corporal punishment registers, school inspectors' reports, lists of promotions for teachers, and much more.
QFHS has already made available online an index to over 2.3 million school admissions and soon will be adding our Queensland Teachers Index (over 35,000 entries) and the Queensland State School Committee Members index covering 1876-1899.
