BALLARAT COURIER BDM INDEX 1950-2014
Ballarat & District Genealogical Society is very pleased to announce the availability of new indexes to the Ballarat Courier. The date range now spans 65 years with a break only for 1956-59. This section is currently being compiled and will most likely be ready early in 2016.
Countless entries have been transcribed from the BALLARAT COURIER by one very dedicated volunteer, Marilyn Miller, whose tireless work is very much to the benefit of our members. These indexes are only available on the computers in the Australiana Research Room of the Ballarat Library and on the research laptops. For people unable to visit the library enquiries may be made to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Courier indexes are much more than just BDMs because also noted are other announcements such as Anniversaries, Birthdays, Engagements and Remembrances.
Abbreviations used -
Bro:Fr:Mons:Mother:Rev:Rt.Rev:Sr: Religious titles
Jnr: Junior - Snr: Senior
It is advised to also check newspapers either side of the Courier date shown
