The task of identifying ancestors within historical records poses a unique set of challenges. Names were often misspelt, or a person may have been known by many names (e.g. traditional name, nickname or European name). If you are having difficulty locating a name, try expanding the search results by inputting spelling variations or other possible names. Alternatively, try browsing by location instead, by town, mission or station.
The Western Australian Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of this State. We pay tribute to the Aboriginal Elders of the past, present and respect to all those who have contributed to this invaluable and emotionally driven project.
The DLGSC also recognises the significance of Aboriginal history and culture in contributing to our national identity and is committed to working with Aboriginal people to promote, educate and share this vision.
