Courier Masthead 1870
THE BALLARAT COURIER will be coming to Trove thanks to Ballarat & District Genealogical Society and a contribution from Ballarat City Council. With a community grant announced last December and funds from the Society this digitisation project is already in progress. It will begin as a follow on from the Ballarat Star which is online from its beginning in 1855 to January 1870. The first Ballarat Courier film we have chosen to be digitised begins in December 1869 so there will a slight overlap. We do believe that we will reach the mid-1870s before the money runs out. This is a cooperative venture between the State Library of Victoria who provide the microfilms and the National Library of Australia who undertake the digitisation. We are extremely pleased to have initiated this second digitisation project for another early Ballarat newspaper. Hopefully by June 2015 there will be information about availability. UPDATE- as of June 2018 The Ballarat Courier is now digitised and online at Trove for the years 1869-1882. This is an ongoing partnership between Ballarat & District Genealogical Society and the National Library of Australia,
