Four-month summary of new and updated Australian & NZ genealogy records

Below you'll find my summary of the new and updated Australia and New Zealand records released by the major genealogy database suppliers since my last update on 26 August.

These regular listings of additional sources are designed primarily to help family historians whose Irish ancestors emigrated to Australia or New Zealand, but you don't have to have heritage from Ireland to use them!

They may prove useful to any researchers looking for a brief update of what's relatively recently been made available for the two countries.

Unless otherwise stated, the figures in parenthesis reflect the number of records uploaded to a new or updated collection. Where there is a second figure in parenthesis, it is the revised total number of records in an updated collection.
