CSI

This is an acronym for our Comprehensive Subject Index 

This index of nearly one and a half million records is housed on a computer in our library. You can enter the name of a person and it will give you a list of references to that person that are in our library.  Other records such as ships, places, etc., are also included.
(Some items are yet to be indexed.  This is a work in progress.  It is hoped to make it available on-line in the future.)

!! GRO BDM CERTIFICATE SERVICE !!
BDM Certified Certificates or a pdf copy (for Births 1837-1917 & Deaths 1837-1957) from the UK General Record Office are available through the Hobart Branch.  People may order and pay for them 'across the counter' at the Hobart Branch Library or forward the request form by email & pay by direct deposit to the branch's bank account (email & BSB details are on the request form).  If you require any assistance in completing the request form, please don't hesitate to contact us.  A Certified Certificate takes approx. three weeks, at a cost of $25, with a PDF file available in approx. 7 days for $15.00.   Download a request form HERE
