Other Info
 
While the course Australia: Births, Deaths and Marriages concentrates on the various sources of church parish records and government civil certificates of births, deaths and marriages, this course focuses on other sources to obtain birth, death, and marriage information.

Birth, death, and marriage information may be found in newspaper notices, naturalization documents, and military service records. Divorce records provide information about births and marriages, as well as details about the ending of marriages. In addition, there are many other records associated with deaths, including wills, probate, deceased estate files, intestacies, letters of administration, cemeteries, undertakers, and inquest records.

Military records and biographical dictionaries will be mentioned briefly as a source of information about births, deaths, and marriages but these topics are covered in more detail in other courses.
