This publication consolidates into a single index Volume 1 to 5 of the Queensland Family History Society continuing QSPI project (previously published on microfiche), indexing admission and other school records in Queensland.
It indexes approximately 230,000 names drawn from 175 Queensland primary schools. Dates range from 1864 to 1997, with a 30 year closure observed, as recommended by Education Queensland, when the Society extracted pupil names directly from Admission Registers. Schools range from large city ones with admissions in the thousands to country one-teacher school 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 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 - all very useful to a genealogist and family historian. School records are a source that we cannot afford to overlook!
The CD includes QFHSdatasearch, developed by the Queensland Family History Society, - a generic interface designed to search genealogy databases. This version features field oriented and keyword searches, Boolean selection, sorting and wildcard searches.
System Requirements: PC with Windows operating system (Win95 or later), CD drive and 20 Mb of free disk space to install QFHSdatasearch.
