New South Wales industrial school records 1867-1925

Ancestry (www.ancestry.co.uk) has added a new collection of industrial school records for New South Wales from 1867-1925 (Paramatta, Sydney and Biloela). Here's a list of the schools and records added:
  • Court Ordered Admissions, 1867–1923 [Biloela, Cockatoo Island and Parramatta Training School, Parramatta]. Series 14722. State Records Reel 3850. State Records Authority of New South Wales, Kingswood, New South Wales, Australia.

  • Committals, 1906–1918 [Parramatta Training School, Parramatta]. Series 14724. State Records Reel 3852. State Records Authority of New South Wales, Kingswood, New South Wales, Australia.

If your ancestors ventured down under, well worth a look at http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=2985.

Ancestry has also somehow updated its 1901 census for England, Wales, Channel Islands and Isle of Man. I have no idea what they have done to the collections though - it's possible that the search interface has more field options, but it's that long since I've accessed the collections on the site that I forget what was there before!

My new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, is now available from Pen and Sword. My next Pharos Scottish course, Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Registers, starts May 15th - see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/scotland-1750-1850-beyond-oprs-starts.html. Time to smash a few brick walls...!
