Index to Australian Death Notices

The following index is extracted from The Ryerson Index to death notices appearing in current Australian newspapers. It also includes some funeral notices, probate notices and obituaries. Because the Index was originally created by the Sydney Dead Persons Society, it concentrates on notices from New South Wales papers, although some papers from other states are also included. Within NSW, the bulk of the entries are from the two Sydney papers, the Sydney Morning Herald and the Daily Telegraph. Indexing is being continuously carried out by a team of volunteers, and the website is updated every two or three weeks. This extract is current as of 1 August 2005. Lookups may be requested at www.rootsweb.com/~nswsdps/lookup.htm.
