The Bicentennial (1988) BDM Project has arisen from work done in 1988 transcribing the Births, Death and Marriages appearing in the Brisbane newspapers. The Courier Mail, Daily Sun, Telegraph and Sunday Mail family notices were faithfully transcribed by Glenda Hoelzl, a GSQ volunteer, throughout the bicentennial year.
There is a wealth of information contained in these transcriptions as they cover such events as birth notices, engagement notices, golden weddings etc., 21st birthdays, memorials, as well as death and funeral notices. The notices cover much of Queensland and interstate.
The transcriptions are being digitized and will be released on CD and as a PDF document when digitization is complete.
