Colonial Tasmanian Family Links database

The Colonial Tasmanian Family Links database is designed to provide an initial online genealogical research resource. It links individuals with other members of their families living in Tasmania in the 19th Century. The information about individuals is based primarily on records of births, deaths, and marriages and similar events, held in the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office (TAHO) and the linkages have been developed by family historians associated with the former National Heritage Foundation in the late 1990s. The database contains approximately five hundred thousand entries.

Although records are not available from the links within this database, most early Tasmanian Birth, Death and Marriage registrations are now available online here.

For more information on births, deaths and marriages in Tasmania visit Family History.

Except where indicated by '(AO)', the family links in the database have not been made by the TAHO and we are not therefore able to guarantee their accuracy. Links made by the National Heritage Foundation have been built up from a diverse range of sources which have not themselves been checked. The database is no longer being updated and TAHO cannot accept any further corrections.
