Past Editions of Tasmanian Ancestry Journal

Tasmanian Ancestry is the Journal of the Tasmanian Family History Society Inc., which was originally known as the Genealogical Society of Tasmania. Our journal was first published in June 1980, shortly after the formation of the Society. It is published as one volume per year, normally with four editions per volume.

Volume 1 had only three issues. Volume 9 had five issues to bring the journal into line with the membership year. Volume 12 also had five issues. Two of these were numbered ‘1’. One of these was a special issue for the AFFHO Congress in Launceston and this is referred to here as ‘1a’.

The pages in Volume 4 Number 1 were incorrectly numbered as 153 to 188 instead of 1 to 36. This error was referred to in Volume 4 Number 2 page 38.  The first four volumes were produced as size B5, that is, 176mm by 250mm, then from Volume 5 on they were produced as size A5, that is, 148mm by 210mm. These sizes have been maintained in these files.

Please note that many of the postal addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers may no longer be current. Always check before using any which may be found in these documents.

Printing and Searching

If you wish to print an article, please note that the page numbers in the PDF file may differ from the page numbers in the journal. Carefully select pages to print.  

These files are fully searchable; however, production of Volumes 1- 4 was via imaging which has resulted in less reliable searching than later volumes.

The first twenty volumes are also available as a DVD and can be ordered here. These are of a higher resolution than the downloadable versions available here and may give better results when both viewing  and printing. This is particularly true for some of the older volumes which have required significant compression (with some loss of quality) in order to be a suitable size for downloading. In deference to our current members, the most recent three volumes (twelve editions) will not be available online.
