BENDIGO ADVERTISER PERSONAL NOTICES
The Bendigo Advertiser
was established in 1853. It was one of the first newspapers printed and
published on any Australian goldfield. Since 1856 it has been published daily.
Some of the information in these volumes are available from our Government
indexes and other sources, but these notices printed in their entire text give
us further details of where and when the event occurred, often telling us which
country our ancestor may have come from, with addresses, occupations, cause of
death, also many relations names.
Bendigo Advertiser was
and still is the main newspaper for Bendigo. Betty Jackman has extracted
all the 'Personal Notices' from the Advertiser and has published these notices
in hard cover book form. Volume I covers the years
1854 - 1880 and the entire text of each notice is published. Volume 2 details
years 1881 - 1895 and as well as Birth, Death & Marriages, the Memoriam
Notices have been included in the second book. Volume 3 covers the years 1896 -
1910 and once more Betty is to be congratulated for the extensive research she
has done and the comprehensive nature of the publications. All books are very
well bound, on high quality paper with hard covers.
