TRACE HIS­TORY

South Burnett Times - - CENTENARY MILESTONES 100 YEARS OF ANZAC -

IF YOU’RE look­ing for fam­ily in­for­ma­tion out­side of mil­i­tary ser­vice, you might want to try the in­for­ma­tion from sources such as births, mar­riages and deaths reg­is­ters.

Start with your lo­cal ge­nealog­i­cal so­ci­ety for help on where to go or how to find what you’re look­ing for, or, if you would pre­fer to search on­line, An­ces­try.com is a use­ful re­source.

An­ces­try.com al­lows you to search records not just in Aus­tralia, but across the world, and helps you find in­for­ma­tion by start­ing to build a fam­ily tree and branch­ing out with more in­for­ma­tion as you find it.

It does come at a cost – de­pend­ing on what pack­age you choose and what ac­cess to records around the world you can ob­tain, prices start from $21.95 a month and $179.49 for an an­nual sub­scrip­tion – but that al­lows you to search as much as you like.

The site will also help you choose what pack­age you need, based on the records you re­quire to search for your fam­ily and its fore­bears.

Lo­cal his­tor­i­cal so­ci­eties are also a good place to start.
