WorldVitalRecords.com - Genealogical Index to Australians and Other Expatriates in Papua New Guinea
This publication was compiled by Joan Ainsworth in 1981 and covers a wide range of records relating to Australians, Germans, Pacific Islanders and other expatriates in Papua New Guinea. The material is presented in five parts: Cemetery Records: Monumental inscriptions for 15 cemeteries: the old Port Moresby Cemetery Register 1912-1969: and transcriptions of memorials from six churches and war memorials. Miscellaneous Records: Change of name: Civil officials and prisoners of war deported to Australia 1914-1915: firearm permits 1891-1895: naturalisations 1947-1956. Probate Notices 1888-1975: From five different government gazettes: includes Notice to Creditors and Orders to Administer Estates by Curator of Intestate Estates. Transcriptions of BDM: Transcriptions of the birth, death and marriage notices from seven newspapers. Alphabetical Index: A complete alphabetical index to the four earlier parts. The full index covers approximately 15,000 people, with multiple sources for many, and the full file represents over 600 pages of indexes and other information. This material is a unique and extremely valuable resource for research on expatriate families in Papua New Guinea. It covers a total of 38 sources from across the country, with some information such as the monumental inscriptions no longer available as time and vandalism have taken their toll on headstones. With very few Papua New Guinea records available, this publication is an essential resource for researchers with Papua New Guinea interests.
