Queensland Founding Families
Published August 2009$42.50 incl P&P $3.00 per item
This CD presents a collection of 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 covers publication details, foreword, and brief history of the Moreton Bay region 1824-1859 and tips on searching.
It greatly extends the Queensland FHS 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 an absorbing and invaluable research resource for anyone interested in this period of Queensland's history as well as in the families mentioned.
