Just a short note to let you know that we have compiled a new index (on
CD-ROM) of assistance to family historians .... NSW Patriotic Fund
Subscribers - Crimean War (1855).

Over 30,000 subscribers and collectors names are listed and most
entries state the place of collection, so if your ancestor was a
subscriber this index may well assist in establishing where they were
in 1855.

Australia, eventually raised over 66,000 for the widows and orphans,
and The Sydney Morning Herald and the Maitland Mercury published the
details of contributors in New South Wales, in list form, stating the
names of contributors, and with a few exceptions, the location of the
district where collected is noted.

Further details on this index is available on our web site
<http://www3.ceinternet.com.au/~rgow>

Hope the above is of some interest.

Best wishes,

Rod & Wendy Gow

I'm just starting a search in Australia. I was hoping to find census records for NSW and Richmond areas in 1890, 1880, 1870, marriage and birth records. Can you help?
I appreciate ANY starting point. Thank you.
