Hello and Welcome


‘We shall not cease from exploration,

and the end of all our exploring

will be to arrive where we started

and know the place for the first time’.

T. S. Eliott ‘Little Giddings





The web site is all about providing free or inexpensive research tools and assistance for family and local historians. Unfortunately I have had to now add a donate option  for advice  and research…..more

My work aims to provide information enabling the researcher to add foliage to the family tree and move from the ‘womb to tomb’ , ‘cradle to grave’ approaches of some.

Serious researchers realise that it is not enough to regurgitate, born here ,died and wed there and boast how many names they have found and how far in the past they can trace.

Details such as occupation, address or residence , salary, land ownership, licenses etc provide a picture of an individual’s life. Hopefully my various databases will assist in appreciation of the lives of our ancestors.


◊  Gosford

Residents of NSW Vol 3.  now includes some residents of Gosford. You will find the names here.


Wallsend / Plattsburg

For those interested in the Wallsend / Plattsburg area this database may be of interest.


◊  Publicans

My new data base, Residents of NSW Vol. 3 contains, to date, the names of  5,522 publicans and the names of their hotels. If this is interest to you   see here  or  contact me at txcallaghan@gmail.com for more information.


                  ◊   NSW Civil Service

The Civil Service Board of NSW was required to publish a ‘CIVIL SERVICE LIST’ containing the names of all the Officers of each Division and Class and of all other person employed by the Civil Service.

I have digitised the list for 1885, arranged the 9,344 entries in alphabetical of surname and alphabetical order by location..

The database provides surname and first names, occupation / position, the location and the division and / or class of the employee.

Notwithstanding these shortcomings the list provides a valuable research tool for those researchers wishing to progress from ‘womb to tomb’ research to one providing foliage to the family tree.

You will find the database here


◊ The passage of the ‘Squatters’ Act of 1846 – 47 replaced the system of annual tenure and gave to the pastoral industry beyond the ‘limits of location’ a fixity of tenure , albeit only for fourteen years but during that period only he could purchase the land. During the following years the Government Gazette published the names of applicants for leaseholds.

If you are interested in the names you will find  details  here on my site.  http://wp.me/P3yFOW-TR


If you wish to obtain a appreciation of  the Present Day Value (PDV) of your ancestor’s wages, salary or any other cost you may find my tabulation of the PDV of interest. Follow this link .


I have now digitised the 1913 Electoral Roll for the towns of Wallsend and Plattsburg.  A copy of this CD has been donated to the Wallsend Library. If you cant visit the library you will find the  names on the rolls here .


My latest project ‘NSW Residents . Vol. 3’ is still being added to with  45,449 entries to date. This database is progressively being sorted by surname, town or place, year and occupational grouping. You will find the links here. NSW Residents V3


 ◊ For those who are interested in the inscriptions on the Singleton Cenotaph you need to be aware that there are variations in the surnames The Cenotaph also does not include the names of all those who enlisted from the district who died.


For those who are researching Irish ancestors and the difficulty in such  I have the Griffiths valuation for the parish of Clomnany which I obtained in a visit to the Public Records Office in Belfast.


◊ Those researching the Windsor district may be interested in the names of persons who received relief, flour, sugar and tea, as a result of the 1859 floods..


◊ The extracts from the Diocese of Maitland for 1926 provide details of all the then Catholic parishes including Singleton.


I have now commenced adding the 1848 maps of the NSW Counties . As well as showing towns and streams they also show the location of stations. To date Bligh, Gloucester, Durham, Wellington, Bathurst, Camden, Bourke & Grant (Vict.) and Northumberland. More to come.


◊ Those researchers who are interested in the history of Jerry’s Plains may find this article of use.


◊ The records of the NSW Public Service for 1885 has the names of over 3000 employees. It also provides the names and the schools for teachers, pupil teachers, probationary teachers, itinerant teachers, mistress and School Attendance Officers are listed. Many of the schools have long since disappeared or closed but may be of interest for those whose ancestors were teachers. They are listed in my new database NSW Residents Vol 3.
