AIATSIS MS 4165 - Aboriginal Families of the Moree Region
Date range: 1788-1997
Noeline Briggs-Smith deposited the collection in the Library, in October 2001, on behalf of the Northern Regional Library and Information Service at Moree, New South Wales.
The collection consists largely of certified copies of birth, death and marriage certificates of Aboriginal people in the Moree andsurrounding areas. In addition, there are birth, death and funeral notices, for example from The Australian Evangel, and printouts from sources such as the 'Index to the Brian Williams Family History Genealogies’ held at the University of New England Regional State Archives. Included also are notes made from church records, such as baptismal records from the Salvation Army Church Records at Moree, family record sheets, such as those from the Griffith Genealogical & Historical Society and other papers.
There is also a photocopy of 'A Grose family history' and various documents such as birth and death certificates for the Grose family; some family trees and a printout of the descendants of Ada Parker.
The collection consists entirely of photocopies.
