We hold massive amounts of records.  In order to help locate information about a topic or person, staff, volunteers and others have produced indexes. 

Our other guides to records link to relevant in​dexes, and also suggest other information that might be useful.  We suggest you start your research with those guides.  For example, the Guide to Military and Defence​ includes a range of indexes relevant to that topic.

What is online?

Search and view many records including Tasmanian birth, death and marriage records​ including convicts, inquests, birth, death and marriage records and more.​

Digitised indexes to browse

What else is there?


Published indexes are gradually being digitised where we hold the copyright.  However, some indexes cannot be digitised by us as we do not hold the copyright. For example, we hold copies of indexes created by the Tasmanian Genealogical Society and others that refer to our records.  You are welcome to view these indexes when you visit, but we cannot make them available online.

What can I find from other organisations?

The following are available freely online in our libraries:
