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 all 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.)

The genealogical Society of Tasmania (GST) was formed in 1980.  Hobart is the largest of its five branches.  In 2001 the name of the society was changed to The Tasmanian Family History Society Inc (TFHS).

Members who wish to buy certificates from the UK General Records Office may order and pay for them 'across the counter' at the Hobart Branch Library.  For a cost of $25 per certificate you can remove the risk of using your own credit or debit card.  Simply provide the details of the certificates you wish to order and pay at the Library Desk.  Turnaround time is approximately two weeks.   Download a request form HERE.
