About the name indexes

The Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office has developed these indexes to some records which contain information about individuals. The indexes provide the name of the person in the specified record, some additional identifying information, and references to the record itself.

Copies of these records that are not yet online may be requested using the copy request form link at the bottom of each of the name indexes.
