What Is It ?

The Coogan Index - An Index to Birth Notices published in The Sydney Morning Herald 1919-23

Compiled from archived copies of Sydney's leading newspaper - "The Sydney Morning Herald". This is a never before published index.

This CD's purpose is to supplement the body of genealogical data available to researchers in NSW. This index to all birth notices in the Sydney Morning Herald covers the five years following the cutoff period of the NSW Registry's index to births in NSW (that year being 1918). The index contains over 20,000 entries from the post World War 1 period.

Why Should I Be Interested in this CD-ROM ?

Given the privacy restrictions on data in NSW, it is very hard to find publicly available sources of data to assist those people attempting to conduct genuine family history research in this state. Newspapers provide a great source of information, but few indexes are generally available to that data. Those that are available are very expensive.

This simple to use index provides enough information to determine whether a specific edition of this premier Sydney newspaper contains information of interest to a researcher

How Does the Software Work ?

In order to attain maximum compatibility, the data is organised into web (ie html) pages. If you have a computer that has a web browser, you can use this CD. Apart from that, there is no need to install any software in order to view the data.

Rather than using a search facility, the data is organised into a hierarchy of web pages ordered alphabetically by the surname. You simply "drill-down" to the page containing the item you want.
