The Mercury Indexes to Births, Deaths & Marriages

The Mercury has been southern Tasmania’s leading newspaper since 1854.  Copies are available on film at the Archives Office of Tasmania, the Reference Section of the State Library, and at many other major libraries in Australia.  Many events included in these indexes occurred outside Tasmania; where possible, this information is included.  Often parents and/or spouses are also named in the indexes.

 

Please note that all the information contained in these books is now available on one CD-ROM.  See "CD-ROM Sales" on the "Sales" page.
