The Ryerson Index lists death notices and obituaries in Australian Newspapers dating back to the 1800s. Searching the index is very easy. The indexes are primarily from NSW newspapers but representation from other states is growing as more volunteers participate. If your local paper is not included, think about volunteering to increase the records available for researchers.
