It was a real chatterfest at the FindMyPast seminar last Monday evening. While lining up to enter the auditorium I was chatting with some ladies, one of whom mentioned the wonderful resources and fantastic staff at the State Records NSW Office at The Rocks. Two of the other ladies in our group were very interested in this revelation - they did not know about the State Records. I was surprised that anyone researching families in NSW did not know of this organisation, their wonderful online indexes, their searchrooms resources for family historians.
As an introduction to their services State Records NSW have produced this video that is available on youtube. The ladies in line the other evening would no doubt find it illuminating viewing.
