The first newspaper in Australia, the weekly Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser, began publication in 1802. Other newspapers soon followed. Notices of births, marriages, and deaths; obituaries, military, government and business notices; and news of the day were printed in these newspapers. Some compilations have been made of the genealogical information found in early newspapers. The following is one such compilation:

Grinly, Merle, and Margaret Belcher, Editors. Crosse- Dunleavy index: births, marriages, and deaths, 1846–1860. Stones Corner, Queensland, Australia: The Genealogical Society of Queensland, 1985. (Family History Library Call Number 994.3 B32c.)
