This site is dedicated to providing useful information and resources for people researching Tasmanian history and genealogy.
Co-ordinated by Meryl Yost of Launceston, Tasmania. I welcome any interesting information to add to the site.

The photograph shown at the top of each page is the timber, dirt floor cottage that my convict ancestor, Robert Barker, lived in near Epping Forest. Unfortunately it is no longer standing.

Click on the links at the side of the page to explore the different sections.

Tips for using this Site
In order to protect against the misuse of e-mail addresses by spammers, all e-mail addresses have been removed from these web pages. Instead, you will find links to a processing form enabling you to send an e-mail without the publication of the e-mail address. This will also allow people accessing these pages from libraries or on-line centres to send e-mail directly from this site.
Note: You MUST use a valid e-mail address when filling in the mail form - otherwise the person receiving your e-mail will NOT be able to reply to you.

Submissions to Listings: are not automatic. You will be sent an e-mail confirming when your listing has been added. Submissions are added every few days, time permitting.
