Family History ACT

The Heraldry & Genealogy Society of Canberra Inc.


A small project team from HAGSOC recently completed a project with Telopea Park School to index school Admission Registers covering the period 1957-1962 and 1965-1969.  The work done by our volunteers produced a helpful finding aid for Telopea’s archivist. telopea park pic.jpg

The Registers contain a wealth of information for family historians, with data about the student, date of birth, religious denomination, name of previous school, parent or guardian, residence, date of leaving school, and in some instances the university or occupation the student entered.

Copies of the registers will be added to the Special Collections in the HAGSOC Library in the coming weeks, alongside Registers previously indexed for the period 1923-1954.

We are hoping to work with Telopea Park School again to transcribe and index more school admission records.  Thank you to volunteers Tina D, Therese L, Jenny M, Chris P and Gina T for their work in transcribing these records.‚Äč
